Review of the 2004 Porsche 911

  • Still the quintessential sports car after four decades, the 2004 Porsche 911 has a unique blend of style, performance and sound that's unmatched by anything on the road.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Pinpoint steering, effortless acceleration, industrial strength brakes, the soothing sound of a powerful flat six.

    Interior quality doesn't match sticker price, outlandish option prices.

996 turbo cab

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

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.




Drove it for fun...and bought

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

I was at my dealership replacing a bent rim on my '99 996. Wwhile waiting I test drove the 04 Porsche 911 C4S. Even though the salesperson said "we're dealing on this last '04" I thought it would be "joy" ride to kill some time. We'll the ride, speed and handling made me start thinking "how much of a trade could I get for the 996". First, this car is glued to the road. You'll have to drive off a bridge to get the back to come out. Second, the throttle is by far more responsive and the torque is very impressive compared to my 996. Third:, the new cabs are quieter than mine and the bose stereo is much better. Last, but not least, the car at high speeds (100+) keeps its front end glued. I bought it.




Great car

Great car.




911 cab - highly overrated

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

I always dreamed of a 911 but little did I realize it would become a nightmare. I have always loved the look and sound of the 911, but have been generally disappointed since owning it. I still think the look and sound is outstanding, but the performance is really nothing special for a car that stickered out over $100 K. You can get better performance from a corvette or BMW M3 for half the price. In addition, the reliability has been abysmal as the car has been in the shop approximately every 2 months. Finally, the Porsche mystique has been severly compromised by the Boxster. My advice for future owners? Admire from afar but do not purchase!




This car is fun to

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

This is a super fun auto to drive. It has the get-up and go one expects from a sports car w/ the creature comfort one should expect from luxury models. One never forgets that this car is ALL PORSCHE!!!

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...
