Dunno how you're gonna get your Porsche over there but the well-heeled find their ways... not to be missed is the stretch from Caguas to Salinas; this drive takes you over mountainous areas on well-kept highways and then suddenly into a near-desert like part with some really sweet straight and level long road strips. Puerto Rican cops are blissfully unaccustomed to ticketing speeders and even less so to obviously foreign drivers. Another nice mountain drive is from the Luquillo beach area up to the El Yunque forest. This is a classic twisty drive surrounded by a lush tropical rain forest tended to by U.S. park rangers complete with visitor facilities and other modern touristy amenities.
