Review

Love this 40th Anniversary 911... It is a blast to drive and been reliable driving all over east coast... Rides great for a true sports muscle car. Ice cold A/C I did change the Navigation Head unit. The car is beautiful a head turner acceleration is instant in any gear the clutch is crisp...

2004 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 40th Anniversary Edition Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought this Porsche second hand after test driving every model from the 993TT, GT2, GT3, Targa 996, and Carerra 997 with everything else in between. Even went to the Porsche Driving School for two days to try out the newer 997's and for the money, this Porsche Rocks!!! She is fulled loaded with everything Porsche could throw into a car plus additional HP with X51 Power Boost. She is a joy to drive with incredible handling, acceleration, and a smooth ride. Beautiful color outside and top quality all leather inside. Downsides, the usual complaints....bad cup holders and the 996 narrow body. Otherwise I have no regrets ever with this purchase!! Test drive one if you can find one!!


Favorite Features

Incredible value for the money considering it cost over $100K new. Easy to handle and drive on the road or on the track. A real show stopper that everyone including Porsche owners asking about this unique model and features.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holder not over the electrical panel but in the arm rest for more stability and support. Get rid of the rear window wiper!!

2004 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 40th Anniversary Edition Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

During this past year I test drove and researched every Porsche made from 1996-2007. I chose the 2004 Anniversary. I loved its price, acceleration, styling, engine sound, aggressive exterior, and interior creature comforts. It has the most bang for the buck without all the added expenses of a turbo which will be my next Porsche, a 993TT. Maintenance has been marginal and fuel economy exceptional for a sports car. Heads turn wherever I go, including from other Porsche drivers trying to fiqure out what type of Porsche I'm driving. It's a novelity Porsche that packs plenty of horsepower. "She's a lady when she has to be and a whole lot more when she needs to be."


Favorite Features

Everything. I especially love the motor sound. You can hear her coming blocks away and she has the horsepower to back it up. The 40th Anniversary is a unique Porsche, especially for someone wanting all the bells/whistles without spending tons of money for a new 997 C2S. Try it if you can find one.


Suggested Improvements

Optional C4S lights would enhance the rear as would a GT3/GT2 spoiler. Cup holders need to be in center console not over all the electrical equipment. More horsepower.

2004 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 4S AWD 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car is everything I dreamed it would be, and more! It drives like a dream and when it's on open road it just wants to go. Interior is designed beautifully. The wide body and fat rear rubber of the S are the icing on the cake. The new age 911s are a perfect blend of the 911s of the past and the grand touring vehicle the 928 was intended to be. This car is world class!


Favorite Features

Bose stereo is a must in this car. The only drawback is that it drowns out the beautiful sound of the powerplant.


Suggested Improvements

A bit tight on headroom for 6'3". It's ok though, I'll stoop! Stalk controls are flimsy and not really intuitive (cruise control).

2004 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 40th Anniversary Edition Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The 40th Anniversary Porsche 911 Carrera is perfect. It differentiates itself from all other Carreras with 911 badges, Porsche GT paint, horsepower, interior, stereo, and polished wheels. I was just at a Porsche car show with 200+ Porsches and mine was the only 40th anniversary. I had to fight people off with questions and comments about how beautiful the car was. What a great exhaust sound. The matching Porsche leather luggage is frosting on the cake. This car is coooool!


Favorite Features

The Porsche GT silver paint and 25 more horsepower. Only 1,963 were produced worldwide and each one is numbered. The aluminum 911 rather than the plastic carrera emblem on the rear makes people ask questions. the car is rare! if you find one buy it.


Suggested Improvements

None!
