Review of the 2002 Porsche 911

  • A living legend, the 2002 Porsche 911 offers a level of technology, performance and versatility that few other cars can match.

  • Safety
  • Pros

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

  • Cons

    Options are pricey, engine layout attempts to fight the laws of physics.

  • What's New for 2002

    For those zealots who feel that a 911 Turbo isn't quite enough, Porsche rolls out the new-for-'02 GT2. Standard 911s receive new front-end styling and a bump in engine size (from 3.4 liters to 3.6) and power (from 300 horsepower to 320). Other 2002 Porsche 911 updates include a real glovebox, the option of a Bose stereo, a single cupholder and a gaggle of new wheels. Open-air versions were not overlooked when they were making improvements; the Cabriolet finally gets a glass rear window and the Targa model returns after a four-year hiatus.

2002 996 cab

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

This has been a great car. I looked at 997s but, for the money, the the 996 seemed like the best buy. It's an everyday driver and I drive it from Austin to Dallas every week for work. A lot of fun; surprising economy; very comfortable seating.




2002 c2 cab - 4th

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

My 4th 911, first water cooled and the best of the lot. Reliable and an absolute blast to drive even around town. There is nothing like a 911, especially a rag top with the top down. I bought a museum quality car and keep it that way as a pleasure car. When I take it out I feel the bit of celebrity a Porsche 911 brings to the road. I love the power top and the complex way the rear deck comes up to hide it, but it squeaks when going up and down and has a small intermittent rattle. No real problem. Hope to own a 911 until I die and would be buried in one but it would be a shame to deprive someone else of the pleasure of driving the car.




Fatal attraction!!

What can I say more. The title says it all! I finally got my dream car and it was absolutely worth the wait! I have a triple black 911 and I look forward each week for the Fridays, the Saturdays, and the Sundays to take her out for a run!! Thank you Porsche!!

Low ratio quality/cost

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

Car just lost power and stopped downtown with no warning, engine is broken, waiting for repair appointment and estimates. I am disappointed with quality, On- board computer has no diagnostic message to display.




I love this car!

Vehicle: 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

I've had all kinds of cars and many Porsches over the years. I race a Porsche 944 competitively and this is my weekend toy. Despite some of the negatives that you might hear about the 996, these are awesome, modern Porsches. This car is fantastic in every way. Invest in a remote top from Wilhelmy and operate the top from the key fob. I can't live without mine!




911 wundercar

Having owned a number of sports cars over the years, and having lusted after many others, the biggest downside to the 911 is that you no longer lust for anything better. The car does almost everything unbelievably well. The 911 provides race car acceleration and handling, while offering a fairly comfortable ride and interior, a really usable trunk (so you can drive to the store), a wonderful level of fit and finish, excellent gas mileage and reliable performance. Besides all of the above, it's flat out gorgeous.
