If you had the opportunity between purchasing a clean, low-mileage '09 vs purchasing a new '10, which would you do? Forget the new vs. used argument...the reason I'm asking is I'd like to know if there is any advantage of the '10 over the '09...thanks in advance.

If you are saving the extra money going with the 09, I would stick with that... Everything else is pretty much the same, except the warranty which is already on the clock, but shouldn't be a big deal.

The steering wheel changed, and the price went up. All other things equal, get the cheaper one (unless, I guess, you really really like the new steering wheel).

Thanks for all the input...the extra $$ isn't worth the new steering wheel!

I would go for the 2009....but I am seriously considering moving to the 2010 steering wheel....for me...adding the multi function....a much nicer feel...but I love the huge 2009 discoun...but that new wheel is much much nicer

2009 and 2010 offer multifunction (earlier cars also)...the new standard steering wheel is very close to shape and feel to that of the prior sport/turbo wheel....with a slight change in cosmetics....

What's the difference in 09 and 10 steering wheels? I thought the multi function buttons were an option for 09 too?
Just the shape of the wheel.

09 standard steering wheel is the old triangle shaped version.

10 standard steering wheel is the round airbag (pdk style and thicker) shaped version.

As an 09 owner, I'd go for the best deal. That said, the DFI block was only placed into the croc in 09. While they have been VERY FEW (if any) problems with the new drivetrain, including a whole season of racing the new block without reported problems, Porsche may have made small but significant changes in the 2010.

Note that racing has typically not been where DFI engines have shown problems, but rather it's been carbon buildup in daily drivers in city traffic.
