2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)
I live in Manhattan and drive maybe once
a week, probably much less in winter.
The Porsche has a problematic battery
that drains quite fast unless the engine
is idled or the car is driven at least
several times a week. I did not have the
time to go and rev the engine every day
and so went into battery problems.
You can not stop the battery drain by
disconnecting the battery. For safety
reasons,the doors do not open if you
disconnect the battery so there is no
option but watch the battery drain !
So...? I had to sell my car. Be aware
and alert of this problem. Porsche and
numerous magazines that claim to
"review" cars will not mention such
facts to you.
Terrific handling. Makes you feel
invincible. Get the tiptronic version,
it's like a a toy.
