I had the privilege of driving this car last week. I headed out of Denver down US-285 then up over Guenalla Pass and into Georgetown - had lunch there - then headed back into town via I-70 (briefly) before taking US-6 East back most of the remaining miles to return the car. I believe I had it in my possession for at-most four-and-a-half-hours. So... some quick takeaways: 1. The Handling. // Mother-of-God.... this car is on a set of damn rails. It just did what it was asked to do. And was happy and enthusiastic to do-so. This is a true driver’s car, and I’d heard that term countless times without being able to quantify it. I understand now. 2. The Power // The first time opening up the throttle in earnest and getting into the powerband, then shifting into 2nd near the redline while getting onto the freeway was a lesson in how much I had to learn about this car. It’s legitimately surprising how much power is available between 4k-7k rpm. 3. The Sound of The Engine Will Live in Your Head Forever // I was 8-year’s old when I saw Jurassic Park at the theater. I’d basically remember only three moments of that movie vividly until I rewatched it a decade later: the kitchen scene with the raptors, an early scene when the park CEO steals the archeologist’s champagne and they go “Hey! We were saving that!” and the white haired grampa goes “yes... but today I got into it.” And the last moment which is the one most burnt into my memory was the roar of the T-Rex. | I later found out this was the “combination of a baby elephant's squeal, an alligator's gurgling, and a tiger's snarl.” | So, take that iconic T-Rex roar and take it down by 60%. Next overlay it with a equal amount of a low end growl Jeep TJ’s 4.0 inline-6, but run it through some audio-smoothing filters on a computer. Finally, add in a double load of whatever Porsche 911 noise suits your fancy from YouTube. That’s about what it sounds like from the drivers seat. It was everything I thought it would be and more. I don’t think I’ve gone 2-hours since driving the car without mentally replaying the engine noise or searching for clips on YouTube to confirm I wasn’t just rewriting memories to match the experience - it’s slightly subdued on video, but very much the same acoustic experience. 4. Traction control / Porsche Stability Management (PSM - or ‘Please Save Me’)- 'this isn't a bug, it's a feature.' // Chuck tells me "this is the traction assist - don't turn-it-off - more or less, this is the 'keeps-you-out-of-the-ditch button." This had mentally introduced a thought that I was “driving with training wheels” until it kicked-on during a modest turn over a slight hill-crest - and I felt the backend start to come loose doing ~60mph. I momentarily noticed a yellow flash with squiggly lines on the dash, as the car sat-down and corrected itself, continuing on down the road. Keeps you out the ditch indeed. 5. It’s Way Faster Than I Expected (You’re Expecting) // Every gear is faster at WOT than my Subaru Outback regardless of gear. I’d go-into a moderately-tight turn in 1st gear at 5k rpm, accelerate out, and then shift into second - hear the speed alert beep at 80mph - a second or two after shifting into third - and downshift back into 2nd while braking and setting up for the for the next turn. 6. Still, You’re Completely Capable of Driving This Car // It's honesty a surprisingly docile car under 3k rpm, and one could easily make this car their go-to daily-driver. Chuck, the owner told me "below 3k it's really not anything special - until your into the powerband, it kind of behaves like a Toyota Camary.” So... if for some sad - strange reason - your goal is to take this car out and just play-out the F&F Paul Walker quote “Q: that your car?” / A: “I’m the one standing next to it.” You’ll be able hold up the ruse while pulling away from your parking spot. 7. When The Road is Twisty and Uncrowded - People Want to Let You Drive and Will Facilitate // This one seems odd, but other cars just get out of your way - they’d preemptively pull over as they see me coming up and wave me through. It's odd, but the drivers don't seem to harbor any grudges thereafter, either. Just make sure to let them hear the engine as you pass. 8. This Car Will Quickly Remind You That It’s Out of Your League // After departing the owner’s driveway, I made it preciously 4 stoplights before I stalled on green. I’d not wanted to launch the car into the rear of Kia Rio in front of me, but gave it too little gas and the car died after moving a few feet. I saw the passenger in the truck to the left of me shake their head. 9. Despite Your Initial Faltering in Those First Few Miles, It’s Going to Let You Into The Cool-Car Club Regardless. // I stopped to checkout a possible lunch place on US-285 a little after 1pm and it was like being in on some sort of inside joke. I saw unintended double takes by people walking in the parking lot, a huge smile from a little boy maybe in 3rd-or-4th-grade as he grabbed and tugged at his dad’s arm to get his attention while gesturing toward the Porsche with his other hand. The grandpa taking his extended family (I hope... that’s too many kids otherwise) out to breakfast - sitting on a bench - and watching the car with a look I can only describe as excitement and desire mixed with resigned acceptance that it wasn’t and would never would be his car. I wanted to roll window down and tell him “this’ll probably cost me less for the day, than you’re going to spend picking up the tab at breakfast. Dude, you can do this too!” 10. It Will Ruin Your Current Car // My MDX feels like I'm captain of the Acura pontoon boat now. Yes, it’s just that good. It was by far the most amazing driving experience I've had... and so: 11. The Mental Math Will Begin // I’m currently trying to work out the math on being able to say "well the cost of early Cayman S is in the range of a new Subaru Impreza.... ‘no. listen, honey! this is totally a daily driver’.” 12. It’ll Kind-of Feels Like You’re Seeing an Escort // You can almost hear a friends voice saying “Listen, dude... this car... she’s out of your league. She’s expensive and potentially trouble with your spouse...” but damn if she isn’t the thing occupying all of your thoughts recently. Things you never got to do with her. Places you haven’t been. Maybe you’d be able to pass off another Turo-trip as work on a long-edit freelance commercial - you know a guy with a drone. 13. She’ll also be the worst type of mistress. // The one who makes it seem possible. To take her home to your garage. To grab the shifter and know it’s yours. To take the plunge and have it as your own. And to that end: 14. Your $150 is likely just a down-payment on ~$40k // You’re going to want that experience again... so you start to rationalize, review and replay the day in your mind. Why wouldn’t this be a good idea? Don’t the people around you want you to be happy after all? If not, then why take their opinions’ seriously to begin with? What’s the harm in one little eBay Motors bid? 15. It’s a phrase from reappropriated from Alexister Crowley, but “Take What You Want and Pay For It.” // It’s going to be entirely worth the money, but that’s not the true cost in this scenario. The Porsche and associated driving experience is likely going-to-be everything you think it’s going-to-be... and coming to terms with that is where the true-price to pay will be found.
Michael was wonderful and very accommodating! Would not hesitate to do business with him again. The car was terrific!!
Thanks again Michael for getting me the 911 on late notice. You & your Porsche are why Turo is an awesome place to be.
Michael is a genuinely nice guy & what a ride his Porsche is. Perfect for all the beautiful sunny days here in Denver. I will rent again soon as i already miss her.
The car was amazing !!!Communication with the owner was very easy!Had an amazing experience,highly recommended!
Had an amazing time with the Porsche driving around Rocky Mountains. Ahmad was an awesome host. He made sure my entire trip was hassle free. Got to definitely do this again when I come back to Denver next time.
Exceptional experience. Gage was great to deal with. The Panamera is a truly special vehicle. It does wonderfully in both snow or sun. Gage outfitted it with the optional roof box, which fits skis and snowboards without a problem. It fits 4 adults and gear easily. I really enjoyed using Turo for the first time.
Owner is extremely responsive and helpful. Car is clean and so much fun to drive! This was a better price than an economy car rental in Denver. Great deal!
Ahmad was a terrific host from his proactive communication to the condition of the car. The Porsche was a very fun addition to the long weekend and was a thrill.
This was an incredible experience!! Would 100% rent again. Michael had the car clean, with water bottles, and an easy to ready welcome packet. Car was amazing. Highly recommend, this was first class!
Awesome host and an awesome car definitely will use again next time I’m in the Denver area
What a car! Loved it. Owner was easy to work with, very quick to respond, and all around made this easy. The car did have squeaky brakes, and is damaged in a few places. But for the price you pay to rent it, its worth every penny! I would and probably will rent this car again!
Gage had excellent communication throughout the process. The car was immaculate!
Marcos was lightning fast at responding, extremely friendly and helpful for anything we might have needed. The Porsche was SPOTLESS clean and the most fun in driving a car I've ever had.... Marcos and his car truly made our weekend getaway exciting. I would rent from him again in a heartbeat. Thank you
Tremendous experience with the car and the host. This is a rare and amazing car in wonderful condition. A true privilege to be able to drive into the Rockies in winter. Host was great!
This is an amazing car that we are lucky to have been able to rent via Turo. While a Porsche “wagon” isn’t for everyone, I can assure you this is an excellent vehicle - I want one of these for myself now. It is gorgeous, Gage takes great care of it, and it is a blast to drive. Gage was an excellent host and I hope to be able to rent from him again in the future.
Car in awesome shape and chuck was very accommodating. Will be renting his Porsche again in the spring.
This Porsche was perfect for our last min trip to Vail,CO got us through the snowy roads no problem and performed flawlessly. Gage was very flexible and helpful super easy process he met me and my family at midnight got the keys and off we went. Will highly recommend
Super fun car to drive. Ride is firm, but the handling is fantastic. Danny was a great host.
Ahmad was a great Turo host. I had a few questions and he responded almost immediately. Car was of course fantastic. Super clean and very stable in the mountains. I rented a boxer in Florida last year and didn’t compare to this cayman. I would rent again from Ahmad tomorrow.
Host was exceptionally communicative and helpful with everything we needed. Car was immaculately clean and so so so fun to drive. Will definitely rent again! Thanks so much.
Chucks Cayman was an absolute blast. What a great car. German quality perfect balance and plenty of power for the mountain roads. Chuck was a pleasure to rent from would highly recommend!
The 981 Cayman S is an outstanding piece of machinery and the perfect car for Colorado scenic drives. Chuck was an amazing host and it was a pleasure renting from him. The manual transmission is absolutely superb and allows you to connect with the car. Power delivery is perfect and the sound of the flat 6 is intoxicating. I highly recommend Chuck and his Cayman for your turo experience.
My dayghter and I had an awesome say zipping aroung the mountains in this gorgeous car. The car looks like it just came off the line, immaculate! Chuck was a great host, and gave a good explanation of the car. Would definitely rent this Cayman again!
Car was a blast to drive. Loved exploring the Colorado mountains in it. Would rent again!!!
Solid vehicle. TPMS light came on 5 blocks from where we picked it up, and the guy dropping it off said he had “Been late bc he was filling the tire.” Otherwise a great car! Will rent with iDrive Denver again for sure.
Amazing car!! Really great host- it was easy and fun to rent with chuck!! We had a blast. Thanks again.
It was easy, convenient and fun to rent this car. We had wonderful time, enjoyed colorado scenery and will definitely look into renting this car again in summer.
Ahmad’s Porsche was fantastic. Lots of fun and turned a lot of heads. Ahmad was quick to help when picking up the car, and promptly responded back when we had questions.
Spectacular. So much fun to drive. Our day with the car was a mini vacation. Chuck was great about explaining everything I needed to know about the car. Thank you!
Chuck was great to deal with. The car was great and we really enjoyed driving it around the city on the mountain roads.
Had a fantastic experience driving the Porsche 911 Carrera. It was an amazing car and Michael was super nice and made the out & in process fast and easy, yet very informative. He took the time to clearly explain how to properly operate all the bells and whistles that this beauty has to offer. I would HIGHLY recommend both the car and the owner to anyone looking for an amazingly fast yet beautiful car and an easy experience. Thanks Michael!
Michael is very welcoming and hospitable! He really wants you to enjoy your time with his vehicle, he goes above and beyond to ensure so. Would definitely rent from him again. Also his Porsche is sweet, it is immaculate and very fun to drive. Great experience all around, we rented the vehicle for our wedding and loved it.
Beautiful car, fun to drive and very clean. I’m a tall guy being 6’ 5” but I fit great in this car.
Chuck was a fantastic host. Car was spotless when I picked it up, and we walked me through all the unique features of it before I took off. The car is truly a marvel of automotive engineering . 10/10 would recommend.
Ahmed Was a great host car was perfect will definitely rent from again! very accommodating host!
Chuck's car was great and he was very flexible with pickup and drop off. I would highly recommend and consider working with him again.
The car was fast but easy to handle, exceptionally clean and perfect for a nice sunny day cruise. Michael made the trip easy and was very helpful and laidback. Would definitely rent from him again and if you’re considering it I would 100% recommend it.
I've rented some very nice cars from turo and had fantastic experiences and I'm happy to add Michael to this list. He is a wonderful host with a great car to experience. Thanks so much.
Excellent communication in pickup drop off. Car was a blast, will do again next time in Denver.
This car is truly a pleasure to drive. Chuck was super thorough with with walk through and made sure you had everything you needed. Thanks again.
Excellent and well-maintained vehicle. True driver's car. Ahmad has great communication and easy check-in process.
Michael's 911 is an incredible machine and he was a phenomenal host. My wife and I had the pleasure of driving the Porsche through the mountains with the top down enjoying the sun, and all the handling and sound of the car. Thank you Michael for making it easy and allowing others to enjoy. Unforgettable!
The Porsche was a blast to drive, and pick up/drop off at DIA was quick, easy and painless. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride and Ahmad made everything easy. I’d rent from him again in a heartbeat!
Such a fun car and it was in GREAT shape. Ahmad was such and excellent host! We will rent from Ahmad again!
The Turo experience was amazing from start to finish and it was all possible thanks to Michael. The car was clean, ready to go on time, and was amazing to drive. Michael made sure to answer all my questions so that I was armed with the knowledge to make my trip the best it could be. I will definitely rent from Michael in the future!
Michael was the perfect host giving great instructions and tips before leaving. The drive was fun and exhilarating and would love to rent this car again. Totally worth it. Rented this for our 20th anniversary and my wife and I had a great time.
Fantastic trip in this Porsche 911. Michael was friendly, professional, and helpful with the car and patient with us as we were new to Turo.
Ahmad was a great host with a clean car! We had a great trip with a fun little car!
After over 30 trips on Turo, I can honestly say this car is one of my faves🤞🏼. Michael and Mario are great hosts as well.
I highly recommend experiencing all that colorado has to offer from behind the wheel of this fun car. The host was super accommodating and the process was very simple. Will be doing this again
Solid solid solid choice of a vehicle! Ahmad was an excellent host and communication was awesome! I definitely recommend renting this vehicle if you want to ride in style!
One of the best handling vehicles I have ever driven. Match that with the beautiful Rocky Mountain roads and you have a experience unmatched. Manual transmission for those who like to be one with the machine. This beauty exceeded all of my expectations! Absolutely going to book it again on my next trip to Denver!
Absolutely awesome experience, worked with us on flexible drop off time. Car was absolutely amazing! Would recommend
I would definitely recommend Idrive to anyone who lives in or visits the Denver area.
Beautiful car, handles very well. Manual transmission was a dream to drive on the mountain roads. Drive road 103 if you can. Thanks!
Such a pleasure to rent from Johannes. He was very flexible and has an absolutely beautiful vehicle. Highly recommended.
Ahmad was great and this car was amazing! Early on in the trip, we acquired some slight damage to the front of the car, and he was totally understanding and easy to work with.
Absolutely fantastic car... so confident and smooth around corners you’ll swear you’re on rails! Pickup and drop-off was a breeze. Thanks for the incredible ride, it really made my trip!
Fantastic vehicle, perfect for a weekend of driving around Colorado. Key handoff was quick and safe.
Our best Turo experience to date. The car was amazing. Michael was so flexible with out evolving itinerary.
Great car. Fast and comfortable. The car is in great shape. The pickup and dropoff was easy.
Ahmad was an awesome host. Great car, great communication and he made the whole process so easy. An awesome first experience using Turo.
This car is spectacular. Michael was a perfect host. The only problem: now I miss the car.
The set up pre pick up was solid, pics were detailed... snow covered car so not the weather wished for but overall a good trip.
The car I reserved with Ahmad was spotless and in good working order. The entire transaction was professional and convenient. No long lines at the counter, just a simple text with Ahmad and a short shuttle ride to ParkDIA and your on your way. Bonus was the cell charger (forgot mine) and great cds loaded in the changer. Thanks Ahmad.
