This was the first Porsche that I have owned and would buy another one in a second. I have have had no issues with the Porsche and found it to be extremely reliable and problem free.


Favorite Features

Simple, stylish, quick, and reliable. Everything you would want in a sports car.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders

Review

I bought my car in 2003 just as the original warranty ran out. It had 17000 miles, cost 45k and I bought a 2.5k extended warranty. It was lucky I did. I used the car daily, summer and winter. I also did maybe 12 PCA drivers education events in the car. The car's engine was the main issue. It would check engine at high steady RPMs with a misfire code. The dealer changed the lifters (4k) but the car had the same issue afterwards and the dealer then changed the computer (2k). The CEL remained. The car later had an engine failure where the cylinder wall failed. It was new engine time. 13.5k from the dealer with a 2 year warranty. The tiptronic transmission also failed and cost 10k to replace.


Favorite Features

When it worked, I loved the car. Engine noise, handling, brakes, awesome.


Suggested Improvements

GT3 quality engine. The M96 engines are just not reliable.

Review

All sports cars offer some degree of fun, often coming with a high Cost of maintenance. The Porsche company has refined the 911 over so many years that no other sports car can match the dependability of the 911. Turn the key and it goes every time and Oh yeah the fun factor is off the chart not to mention the head turning from those wanting to be you. I have had eight Porsches mostly air cooled but starting with the 996 Porsche raised the bar. If you want a true sports car you can drive every day get a Porsche - because it really stinks when the mechanic spends more time with your ride then you do!


Favorite Features

Dependability - Performance - Autobahn killer - Handling - Styling & Looks - All Wheel Drive Stability Management system is outstanding - Top Down Fun


Suggested Improvements

Interior upgrades should be standard at this price point - Should have included cup holders and glovebox sooner. Porsche seems to take too long introducing ergonomics into their cars.
