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.

A true driver's car

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Porsche 911 GT3 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

My Dad purchased a 996 GT3 a couple months ago and all I can say is WOW! We had the privelege of driving the car on the track and it is unbelievable. The car sticks like glue and the carbon ceramic brakes are extremely powerful. He just had a new exhaust installed and the engine sounds even better than it did before. If you're looking for a car that can be used as a daily driver and also take to the track on the weekends, this is your car.

Street legal race car

Vehicle: 2005 Porsche 911 GT3 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

Just one thing comes to mind everytime I drive my GT3. Incredible. To be able to drive a Cup car on the streets is a real treat. The sound of the engine is mesmerizing. I find myself shifting at high RPM each time just to hear it. The acceleration, brakes and handling are out of this world. I had a 2003 996 Carrera before this and it is night and day difference. This car is very rough and loud, but that is what I like about it. It is the essence of a Porsche and pure driving pleasure. My only regret is that I didn't get one sooner. Everyone I've taken out on a ride is spellbound. My wife makes me take her out at least twice per week. Get one and enjoy it.

If you like raw speed

Vehicle: 2005 Porsche 911 GT3 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

This is the essence of sports car driving. A little rough as a daily driver but if you like track events you shouldn't buy anything else. A true race bred street legal piece of machinery. You'll have tons of fun answering silly questios from the kids in the tricked out Civics! If you can afford it....buy it!

A neighbor down the road has an old 924 that has been sidelined for 4 months waiting for parts. When I was out waxing my 911 (2005) a few weeks ago, he commented that he should have bought an older 9...

I've had my 911S (2005 MY, 9,100 miles) in the rain a few times and it is fine at highway speeds up to 65-75+ mph. Much more stable and none of the skittishness of my former S2000. I think you shoul...

I am taking the last few careful steps before I own a Porsche. I am debating between a 2005 Boxster Conv and 2003 911(996) Carrera cab(RWD). My heart is for the latter (cant afford a new 911 though). ...
