2004 Porsche 911 Convertible Carrera 4 AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car is surprisingly reliable. Porsche has really worked out every bug since the introduction of 996. Get a manual trans if you can and stay with a coupe. Convertible can get very noisy on highway. It was my daily driver for 5 years. Stopped driving it when my commute became too long. Traded it in for a new Range Rover for comfort.

2004 Porsche 911 Convertible Turbo AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Hardtop on, soft top down or convertible top up!!! Regardless, the performance, traction and handling are flawless! Gergeous wide hips, sleek lines with Tech Art front nose and bright yellow brakes boosts its all 911 business. Yet, the "whoa" appearance is as close to the sensual need to unleash its twin turbo furry! ... Total SoCal performance sports car!

2004 Porsche 911 Convertible Turbo AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I have had the my car for two years. The only warranty problem was a CD player issue. Initially, it burned oil, but this lessened with time. I have tracked the car and it is excellent, though you feel the weight. It is easy to drive every day and the convertible mechanism is great (you can use it up to 31 mph). Its four wheel drive has saved me on the track. My only complaint is the squeaking from the hard-top, which I have not been able to fix for more than a few days. This is my favorite of the three 911s that I have owned over the last few years.


Best Features

This car's power band is awesome. Its brakes and steering feel are good as I have read in every slick-backed magazine.


Worst Features

The squeak with the hard top.

Review

I was at my dealership replacing a
bent rim on my '99 996. Wwhile waiting
I test drove the 04 Porsche 911 C4S.

Even though the salesperson said "we're
dealing on this last '04" I thought it
would be "joy" ride to kill some time.

We'll the ride, speed and handling
made me start thinking "how much of a
trade could I get for the 996".

First, this car is glued to the road.
You'll have to drive off a bridge to
get the back to come out. Second, the
throttle is by far more responsive and
the torque is very impressive compared
to my 996. Third:, the new cabs are
quieter than mine and the bose stereo is
much better. Last, but not least, the
car at high speeds (100+) keeps its
front end glued.

I bought it.


Best Features

torque...handling...looks.


Worst Features

none
