Review of the 2005 Porsche 911

  • Still the quintessential sports car after four decades, the 2005 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, awe-inspiring brakes, the rhythmic sound of a powerful flat six, comfortable cockpit.

  • Cons

    Relatively small fuel tank, useless rear seats, outlandish option prices.

  • What's New for 2005

    While the traditional 911 lines have been retained, just about everything else has changed on Porsche's flagship. Notable changes to the 2005 Porsche 911 include more powerful engines, a new transmission, variable-ratio rack-and-pinion steering, an adjustable suspension and new seating options in a redesigned passenger compartment.

Finally got one

Vehicle: 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

After forty years of wanting one badly, I bought my Porsche 911. Low mileage well cared for Tiptronic Coupe. So much fun to drive, fast without a lot of noise or fuss. Plenty of cabin and head room even at 6'3.




The most satisfying car to

Vehicle: 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

I bought a used 2005 (997) 911 Carrera Coupe with Tiptronic 7 month ago. This is my first Porsche, and can't deny I expected to be a nice experience; this car has given me a lot of satisfaction and went beyond my high expectations. The handling at any speed is amazing.




Best sports car to own

This is my 1st Porsche. I am very pleased with the car. I love the looks, performance, quality and specially just driving it. So far I have no complaints or regrets about this car. This is the best car I have ever had so far.

Porsche 997 is hands down

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

I just bought this car trading my '05 Boxster in. Wow! This car is...unbelievable in every way. It's fast, fun and damn good looking. My brother says it well - engineering excellence. I am so happy and privileged to be an owner and to be able to drive a vehcile that so many people dream of driving and owning. I bought an Artic silver one with 19" Carrera wheels, bi xenons, sport seats and so forth. There is no substitute!




Porsche - there is no

Vehicle: 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

While giving more than lip service to comfort, the new 911 has improved on its already awesome acceleration and handling. I have a "base" model Carrera w/ few options and it delivers handling, class, and admiring comments wherever I travel. I paid $69,000 for my C2 model and have not regretted it -- the extra 10 to 15K for the S model didn't seem worth the extra dollars. I test drove both the Carrera and the Carrera S, and there was no real discernible performance improvement for the extra bucks.




What a car

This one is the best ever Carrera.
