2001 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 6M)
This is our 4th Porsche (2nd water cooled) and its the best we've ever owned. The power is exceptional. Handling is superb. Comfortable to drive - great seats. This car looks fabulous. I recommend the non-turbo for a few reasons. The Carrera is lighter, has a true Porsche feel and you can get an extended warranty - should be purchased. The Turbo is incredible, but the all wheel drive takes some of the challenges out of driving. I like the feeling of knowing where the traction limits are. I think this is what makes a 911 such a fun car to drive. The tail gets a little loose, but not like the older 993 and 911. If you're going to drive this car hard, you need to pay attention.
Great looks from all angles. Power! Suspension - handling (mine has been dropped - I don't recommend, unless you're going to track the car). Engine noise (I have an aftermarket exhaust - worth the investment). Comfortable. Can be handful to drive at times, but that's what a 911 is suppose to be.
Reliability issues. I have a bad water pump at 56K miles. Dash light went out at 48K miles - not easy to change. Ignition key return spring not working right.
