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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

The acceleration and handling are incredible.


Suggested Improvements

It could use a little more leg room, although I've spent a day in it comfortably and I'm 6 feet tall.

The Porsche 911 is the finest auto out there bar none. It is fast off the line and can out handle most professional race cars. The sporty looks really turn heads and maintanance is not as costly as it is on most Europeansorts cars. Own at least one in your life time!


Favorite Features

The driving experience.


Suggested Improvements

Improve the seat comfort.

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


Review

The car surpasses expectations as it is fast, safe and comfortable. The build quality is excellent and the styling is timeless. It is easy to drive well if you have exp in high performance cars. It is a substantial improvement over the prior 911's I have owned.


Favorite Features

It is a 911. That really says it all if you know and appreciate Porsches.


Suggested Improvements

Improved interior, which they have done for 2005 as well as a few design tweaks, also done for 2005.

2002 Porsche 911 Convertible Carrera 4 AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought a speed yellow Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and it is a great car. Everyone loves it. The convertible is great. I also love the tiptronic transmission and all wheel drive. I don't like the fact that the steering wheel doesn't raise through. It is a good thing that I am short. Overall this is a great car so far.


Favorite Features

The convertible top.


Suggested Improvements

Add a power steer wheel that raises...they allready changed that.

Review

Fun to drive, head turning car. Broke camshaft at 2000 miles after perfect break in. Dealer replaced engine. Engine misses when hot at low rpm and oil pressure can fluctuate at sustained rpm. Dealer says computer diagnostics show everything normal. Alignment was incorrect from purchase date despite dealership review after 200 miles. Alignment now correct and handling is vastly improved. Even after the headaches, it may be the best performance and looks for the money.


Favorite Features

The handling is superb.


Suggested Improvements

Engine reliability is an issue and I don't think Porsche is coming clean with the problem (The dealer had the engine in stock !).
