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.

No substitute!

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.

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.

This is definitely a great purchase. This car is fun to drive and I can't find enough reasons to drive it. Its horsepower and torque have a nice balance. The only complaint is the suspension. It is too soft for such a performance vehicle. A stiffer suspension would give this car more predictability. However the PSM certainly compensates for it.




If you can afford one,

I have had several air cooled Porsche 911's and this first water cooled auto is a blast to drive and own. It has great handling and awesome excelleration through the gears. It can easily handle the C4 Corvettes and most of the tricked out Hondas and Subarus that aren't too tuned up. I don't waste the gas on the new 350ZX's that pull up and want to go at it. A lot of people tailgate you out of jealousy, but you get used to it and just slow down to aggravate them. Through the twisties, nothing out there can keep up with you as long as you stay on the gas pedal, the handling is phenomenal. I am going to sell this car soon and upgrade to a late model 996 Turbo.

Love this car!!!

Vehicle: 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Coupe AWD

The sound of acceleration is intoxicating, as is rolling through a slow-speed zone in first or second gear. This car turns heads. One minor problem is lack of a cup holder. One MAJOR problem is that every 20 year old idiot in a honda will tailgate you, as well the 'never will afford a real car' minivan driving middle age losers (male and female). Cannot tell you how many times I have been driving merrily along and some MORON pulls up next to me and starts revving his engine: especially contractors in pickups trucks. Gas milage: unbelievebly good. I just re-tread with factory spec tires, and the cost was under a grand.




Pure sports car

Everything I expected in a street legal race car. If you want a luxury sport touring car, or muscle car buy one, but not a Porsche.

Discounts can vary substantially by dealer and geographic area. Last year at this time, I couldn't have gotten more than a $5k discount on a 2005 911S Cab in the immediate DC area. I went to Baltimo...

Designman makes some good points, but I found the 2005 Boxster S was a dream to drive with the 6-speed. I had driven a 2001 911 Turbo several months ago and it was a workout. My 2005 911 S is much m...

BTW, anyone checking out the new Panamera four-door? It's exactly what some of us were mulling over a year or so ago...a stetched 911 look, leveraging the sports car platform for a sedan that looks mo...
