Drove an 08 Carrera 4S Cab

My uncle let me take out his 2008 C4S cab for about 25 miles and it was a blast. The car is basically brand new (1550 miles) and drives like a dream. I had the top down and the sound from the engine was surreal. In the lower RPMs the exhaust note was brute with a lot of base. As the RPMs climbed the car lets out this whale scream that is simply intoxicating. Although I did not feel much torque, it does pull hard as the speed rises. The manual transmission is also very smooth and the shifter was great. I did not get to test the handling too much but I could tell it had a ton of grip.

Here are some pictures:
