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.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2004

    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.

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.




Best car ever made -

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

I got a Boxster in 2001 and within 10 minutes of driving off of the lot I knew I would have to upgrade to a 911. This car makes me want to take the long way home every time I'm out.




What a car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The car is Quick, reliable and a blast to drive. This cabriolet looks as good as it drives. What a sound and experience it has been. I strongly suggest this car even if it's expensive.
