Do-anything car by Simon the Brit in LA on 07/07/2006. Trim: 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great fun for daily driving and for weekend roadtrips! The 2002 model has an uprated engine and improved interior, among other upgrades. The car is ready for anything right from the start: after I picked it up on a CPO warranty in May 2006, I took it to a trackday and the Silver State Classic in its first month. As a daily driver, it's pretty comfortable and gets fair gas mileage of 21-23mpg commuting in LA and OC.
Cons: It's got a little less headroom than previous models, and at 6'4" my hair sometimes brushes the roof. For trackdays, I have to move the seat forward and then tilt it back to get room for my helmet. The gearbox is better than the 993, but still not quite as accurate as the NSX.
Overall review: Great do-anything car: I commute, do road trips, and hit the track in the same car.

Excellent Performance but definitely not a value by Fast Cars on 10/13/2001. Trim: 2002 Porsche 911 GT2, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It's fast, Porsche's P-S-M makes a world of difference in handling ability. before it porsches were piss-poor at for high speed runs
Cons: the PRICE! GOOD LORD! it's not like the porsche is hand built like a ferrari or rolls-royce yet it costs just as much! bring the price down for cryin out loud. a 911 Carrera costs 75K barely equipped, yet the 911 Carrera is mediocre as far as porsches go. Make it like 45K, price the C4 at 50, the 911 Turbo at 60 and the GT2 at 100 and itd be so much more popular and worth the money. If it wasn't for the outrageous pricetag, I would probably buy one in the future but as it stands a BMW M3 can outperform a 911 C4 for at least 30K less, and a 2002 Z06 can outperform a 911 Turbo for 70K less.
Overall review: I love the 996 body Porsche and always have, however the price has always been souring in my opinion. They are simply way too much. An 80K Lingenfelter 427 Z06 could mop the floor with a GT2, and costs as much as a used C4. a Lotus Esprit will far better than a C4 and costs the same price. My view recommendation goes for a performance to dollar ratio and a porsche is simply overpriced when it comes to this. yes, they perform like mad, but the price is too steep. there are simply better buys for much less (Z06, Esprit, M3, etc.) however, if you want the uniqueness that porsche offers, then I guess there is no price for it; if you can afford it go for it. I am still waiting for porsche to consider the middle class consumer.

Fun in the Sun by Wheelman on 06/05/2008. Trim: 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Handling and all wheel drive never felt better. A topless tanning salon at the push of a button. Fun and style packaged with four wheels. An expensive fantastic package that will make you feel young again.
Cons: Minor window gremlins and an alarm that goes off at 3 am whenever the gremlins appear. Shifts are a little long but fixed with a short shift kit.
Overall review: First Porsche car and definitely not my last Porsche. I am hooked. Love this car for its styling and engineering. A piece of art on the road. Everything fits me like a German hand tailored suit. Timeless beauty and forged by the Stuttgart Gods.
