Review of the 2000 Porsche 911

  • The 2000 Porsche 911 is a great sports car that deserves more of a stylistic difference from its less costly sibling, the Boxster.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Finely honed sports car abilities, available in all-wheel-drive and convertible forms, legendary prestige.

  • Cons

    Looks too much like a Porsche Boxster, not as visceral as the previous model.

  • What's New for 2000

    For the 2000 Porsche 911, a new exhaust system bumps horsepower from 296 to 300. Already featured on Carrera 4 models, two-wheel-drive Carreras now get an electronic drive-by-wire throttle and optional PSM stability control. All models receive an upgraded interior console and materials. The formerly optional charcoal odor filter is now standard. There are two new standard and one new optional exterior colors.

Best porsche i ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Coupe

Fast and responsive -This Carrera is the best Porsche I have ever owned, it is quick, agile and and feels completely safe on any surface. Gone is the extreme over-steer and the front end lift under acceleration, and at 0-60 in 5 seconds, the 996 is nothing to sneer at. I bought this Porsche in 2012 with 53,000 miles, it looks new, it feels new and it is very well maintained and a pleasure to polish. Much maligned by the snobs who call themselves "purists" and the IMS and RMS fear mongers, this car has proven them wrong. Not a drop of oil on the floor, no additional oil between changes and including the recent 60 K inspection service it costs only $50.00 per month in maintenance.




Nothing better

Vehicle: 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Convertible

I bought this car 5 years ago - speed yellow with black top, and then 28,000 miles. It's almost 11 years old now with 60,000 miles. No one believes it. These are phenomenally fun, well- built and fast cars. I drive mine daily and thoroughly enjoy it. By far the most satisfying car I've ever owned (and I've owned Mercedes, Audi, Lexus, Toyota, etc...) There is no doubt that the only thing that will replace it will be a newer 911 convertible - hopefully a Turbo. In a word - you need one!

No substitute!

Vehicle: 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Coupe

Have owned car about a year, purchased used with 50k on it. Had original window sticker and records. Always wanted a 911 since I was a kid 30 years ago, but fearful of cost of owning a performance German car, but wish I had done it years ago. Awesome driving car, a solid rock. Bullet like acceleration, brakes that stop on a dime and give 9 cents change, on rails handling, visceral exhaust noise. Classic style that will never be mistaken for some pseudo Asian competition. This car is addictive to drive. I find myself always taking the long route home.




Great car!!!

Vehicle: 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Convertible AWD

I picked this car up used, one owner, 48,000 Miles and it's been a dream. No oil leaks to speak of, mechanically sound. This is a great daily or just weekend driver. I change my own oil for under $50 and that is with a K&N Filter and Mobil 1.

If you have never owned a Porsche. You should at least once in your life. It is not just a car it is pure man and machine made whole in one. It is perfection. Want to go fast in a straight line buy a Vette; want an experience buy the Porsche.




A man's dream car

Vehicle: 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Convertible

I went from a boxster to my conv. carrera. What a huge difference in power, speed and handling. I love getting the looks from other drivers when I pass them and that engine roar makes people turn and admire this powerful looking car. Like some of you out there, I take it out for a spin and return back home with a smile.
