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.
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...
