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.

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911

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...




Forever porsche

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911

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!!

First porsche

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911

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."




911 is king

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911

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!

Perfect car

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911

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!




Sensational

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche 911

I have owned a number of 911s (993, 996, 996-C4S) and a Maserati Coupe '04. The 911 40th Anniversary Edition is hands-down the best. It is almost a GT3 with the back seats in so the kids can enjoy the ride. Beautiful details, sensational acceleration and handling with extra horses and sport suspension. In my opinion the absolute best normally aspiarted 911 (I have no experience with the 997) available for the money.
