I have had the my car for two years. The only warranty problem was a CD player issue. Initially, it burned oil, but this lessened with time. I have tracked the car and it is excellent, though you feel the weight. It is easy to drive every day and the convertible mechanism is great (you can use it up to 31 mph). Its four wheel drive has saved me on the track. My only complaint is the squeaking from the hard-top, which I have not been able to fix for more than a few days. This is my favorite of the three 911s that I have owned over the last few years.

The right front brake calliper was
scratched on delivery, they replace it.
Went to a Porsche Sponsered Driving
School in Phoenix. Started shifting
hard between 1st and 2nd and wouldn't
go into 1st sometimes. After much
insistance a new transmission was
installed at 1600 miles. Now have 2300
miles on it w/o additional issues. NO
MORE RACING FOR ME. Uses about 1.6
quarts of oil every 900 miles, which
isn't unusual for a high performance
motor. The quality is fantastic. I had
a SL 500 before this and had many, many
problems.This is my 2nd new Porsche,it
would be difficult to drive anything
but a Turbo especially a Cabriolet.
For the 2004 Porsche 911, cabriolet versions of the C4S and Turbo models join the lineup along with the GT3 and a 40th Anniversary model. A mechanical rear differential lock is a new option for Carrera coupes, while the options list for the Carrera 4S adds a new Aerokit, two new types of 18-inch wheels and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system (PCCB). Turbo models get a new tachometer and additional 18-inch wheel options. Finally, the GT2 model receives a boost in power along with brake and chassis upgrades.

I am debating between a new 2005/6 Boxster S and a 2006 911 cabriolet (both base and S models). The Boxster is immediately available (unless I want to order a 2006) and comes at a 3-7% discount to MS...
I am going through a bit of a similar dilemma now trying to decide if I want to get a Boxster S or, possibly, the new 997 911 S Convertible. I've been thinking that perhaps, if I got the 911, I could...
