    Is Mya harnessed such that she cannot sit up? She does not look happy, and I'd think a dog would love a convertible!

    Cannot view the video for some reason. Maybe the hosting site insists on cookies, in which case I insist that I shall not be watching.

    She's a beautiful dog. Looks like she's really well cared-for, too.

    I leased a 2012 C4S coupe (997 generation) about a year ago. I felt a lot like this poor dog much of the time, especially on the bumpier sections of freeway that I travel. Road noise, tire noise, stiff ride, very little storage space, I found myself asking why I was spending so much money for this thing. No question the car is a blast 1- on smooth winding roads and 2- with no other cars on those smooth winding roads. How often does that happen? Not often enough. I was using the car as a daily driver and for work activity and frankly it sucked. I just got out of the lease and into a Cayenne diesel and frankly it's heaven in comparison. The ride is silky smooth, quiet, plenty of acceleration and you want to talk range? This carrera will run low before hitting 300 miles whereas the diesel carrera will go over 600 on a tank. I'm a slow learner, maybe i can save someone else the mistake of buying this toy. They are great if you are wealthy enough to keep one in the garage for the occasional weekend drive but "everyday sports car"? Only for masochists.
