Good but Not Great
By Estrid on
2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)
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.
The handling is superb.
Engine reliability is an issue and I
don't think Porsche is coming clean
with the problem (The dealer had the
engine in stock !).
