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.

Awesome targa!!

Vehicle: 2002 Porsche 911 Targa Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

I frequently change vehicles and have had some of the greats in the mid- price range - Elise, NSX, S2000. The 911 edges out the NSX for top honors in my opinion. It gives an unbelievably smooth ride when calm, but upon hard acceleration or cornering tightens up significantly. This is the first of the cars I've owned that my wife will drive. I've only had the car for a few months, but it hasn't missed a beat. Also, the torque curve is much more linear than any car I've previously owned. It's a welcoming contrast to the lack of bottom end power I've experienced in the past. In my opinion the Targa design is far superior to the standard 911; the glass breaks up the roof line nicely.




None better

This car is amazing and is tough to beat. The best sports car on the streets today.

Vehicle: 2002 Porsche 911 Targa Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

The 911 is a nice car, but I believe it is one of those items that is better admired from a distance. The reliability of my Targa has been horrible, and the interior rattles as if it is going to fall apart. The interior design is a joke, and the ergonomics are even worse. There are a lot of little things wrong with the interior that show a lack of car, spaces that shouldn't be there, misspellings in the display, tape holders without tape, and nothing is easy to find. A BMW M3 offers the same performance for half the price, half the insurance, and half the maintenance. What was I thinking?




Great for a change on

Vehicle: 2002 Porsche 911 Targa Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

This Targa has been a great car. I owned a 996 coupe before it and several older Targa's. The large moon roof when up and wind and volume free driving, when down are a lot of fun. The hatchback feature is terrific and I don't understand why Porsche hasn't done this on the coupe. Unlike prior Targa's, it corners as well as the coupe. When it slides back, the rear visibility is reduced. Great car!




Fun car

Just bought the '02 Targa and it is awesome! The Targa top is very cool and the automatic sunshade is very nice!
