Pros;Pinpoint steering,effortless acceleration, awe-inspiring brakes, precise all-wheel-drive option, the rhythmic sound of a powerful flat six, comfortable cockpit.Cons:Relatively small fuel tank, useless rear seats, outlandish option prices. What's New for the 2006 Porsche 911?For 2006, Porsche adds an all-wheel-drive option to its latest version of Porsche 911, which was introduced last year. The all-wheel-drive models bear the expected Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S nameplates. More power will be available for the 2006 911, as well, through a 381-horsepower Carrera power kit. Other changes this year include an improved navigation system, an optional electronic logbook, new 19-inch wheels, a tire-pressure monitoring system and an automatic cut-off switch for the front-passenger airbag. In other news, Porsche has phased out the Turbo, GT2 and GT3 models, which were available as carryovers from the 996 generation last year. Don't worry, new versions of these will show up in coming years.
