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


Review

If you want a true sports car that has been designed around the driver, then this is the car for you. The engine performance is excellent, the sound is beautiful when she sings. Handling is very crisp and gives the driver an excellent feel of connectedness with the car. The interior is relatively comfortable with 2 little seats for the kids. The car has to be owned by a person who has basic mechanical knowledge and understands the concept of "Preventive Maintenance", otherwise it can cost the owner very dearly. But don't worry as there is a lot of help out there since this car has a lot of following.


Favorite Features

Performance, handling, sound, transmission, interior & exterior look, 2+2 but 2 seater feel. Very driver and driving focused.


Suggested Improvements

Highly Recommended Preventive Maintenance: Intermediate Shaft Bearing (IMS) Upgrade Rear Main Seal (RMS) Air Oil Separator (AOS) Water Pump

I drive the car all year round in the northeast. I recently rebuilt the engine. The piston rings were shot and I was burning more oil than gas.


Favorite Features

AWD. Makes driving in the snow fun. Just have to watch out for others without AWD

cup holders.

Review

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 Porsche 911 Convertible Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Style, style, style. Nothing is like a Porsche. Build quality, metallic paint, full leather interior, power, gear shift, and clutch. Cinnamon full leather interior.


Suggested Improvements

Top rattles a little, only intermittently and no problem. Porsche should offer touch up paint for custom color interiors. I have one or two small chips which a magnifying glass can find.
