Best Car I have ever owned
By Melanie on


2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.4L 6cyl 6M)


We have a small car collection (including an Audi R8 and Audi RS6), the Porsche is not the quickest in the group but it is the most reliable. Its a C4 with the sports package. The C4 corners better than either Audi and there is nothing to compare to the freeing feeling of driving the Porsche with the top down! I have replaced the sound system and added navigation and a radar detector. The car now has 60k mi on it and I have not had one mechanical problem.The battery had to be replaced once and general maintenance that's it! The Audis have had numerous problems and they are both years younger. You cannot beat the elegance, classic style, performance, and reliability of this piece of art!

Best Features

The sound of the engine, low maintenance costs (for a car in it's league), comfort, easy to obtain parts if needed, lots of after market options to personalize your car (like carbon fiber accents), and it is a timeless piece. Love it, love it, love it!

Worst Features

I recently had a new top with a glass window put on the car, this improved visibility with the top up. I also recently upgraded the sound system. I am going to change the exhaust as well soon, but love the sound! I finally found an aftermarket cup holder for the center console that actually works.

Great report, but where did you find that cup holder that actually works?
