Review of the 2001 Porsche 911

  • The 2001 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, convertible, and turbo forms, legendary prestige.

  • Cons

    Looks too much like a Porsche Boxster, engine layout attempts to fight the laws of physics.

  • What's New for 2001

    After a one-year hiatus, the 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo model makes its much anticipated return and brings with it 415 tire-shredding horsepower. All 911s get electric engine cover and trunk releases, improved interior lighting and improved trunk carpet. A new optional audio system includes a bass box, there are optional "Turbo Look 1" wheels, a self dimming day/night rearview mirror and a new three-spoke steering wheel with colored Porsche crests.

Reliable, fun daily commuter car

Vehicle: 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 AWD 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 6M)

I bought it late 2004 after crashing my '94 SL500 (183,000 miles). This car is seriously fun to drive. Passengers might complain about the very firm ride; but I am all smiles as I straighten every curve! My only real complaint is the Porsche tax, which makes the Mercedes tax look reasonable. However, this car has been the most reliable German car that I've owned. The rear main seal failed at 99,500 miles (replaced under 100,000 mile warranty), the ignition key housing cracked (not a warranty item), I replaced the clutch when the rear main seal failed, the cooling system leaked twice, and the ac condenser had to be replaced. This is car is not an Infiniti. Otherwise, routine maintenance.




Love at first sight, every

My Porsche 911 never fails to exceed my expectations. Whether it is a drive up to the cottage, a cross country trip to the East Coast (2,500 km), competing in Targa Newfoundland, taking it to Mosport for track days or going out for groceries this car delivers whatever is required. The running costs of the car aren't excessive and insurance wasn't a killer (one of the benefits of middle age). Five years after buying it I'm still surprised at how much fun it is and how great it looks. If you're a car fan you owe it to yourself to get into one of these if you can. And the good news is they just keep getting better!




Awesome car!

Very reliable. Still turns heads. While suffers, as most do, from the rear main seal leak, it's a warranty item, so no big deal. If I could only own one of my cars, this would be the one I'd keep.

I had quite a few electrical system problems with the car, plus a major coolant leak. This was more than I expected with this vehicle considering how highly rated their reliability is! However, the car is a blast to drive and I'm glad I bought it! I highly recommend Porsche cars!




My 2001 carrera 4 is

Vehicle: 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 AWD 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 6M)

The performance is exhilerating and is enhanced by the factory sports exhaust. The handling is superb due to the optional sport seats and 18" w/sport design wheels and Pirelli P-zeros and with the lowered ride from euro springs the C4's AWD. Other than a few nusance interior items, the only problem was a repair to the oil sending unit that had sprung a leak shortly after delivery. No other problems to report. The only complaint I have is the complicated radio/CD that Porsche designs.




Everything i hoped for

First time owner. I love everything about my '01 coupe.
