by sixstrand on Dec 7, 2003 Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)
Although I have driven Porsche 911
coupes before, this is my first Cab.
The difference is well worth the extra
money, as is the four wheel drive. It
is really hard to explain the feeling
of travelling Pacific Coast Highway
going through the curves at speeds I
won't mention with the top down!
In the past, I've always opted for the
tiptronic transmission, but I went for
the 6 speed manuel on this car. It is
incredibly easy to use and enables you
to get performance that you just can't
get from an automatic.
For performance and sheer driving fun,
this is the best vehicle I have ever
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.
