Porsche--blown engine in under 40,000 miles by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/28/2009. Trim: 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, Owned 9 years.
Pros: Looks great--drives well
Cons: Engine blew with 37,000 miles on the car . The car had all work done at the dealer. It was never driven hard or fast. Porsche would not reimburse one penny for repairs despite the fact it was still in warranty by mileage because it was not by age. Over 15 thousand to repair. I have heard other horror stories with this car
Overall review: I would not buy again based on this experience

Best -balanced sports car by Tom from Boston on 07/05/2001. Trim: 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great sports car feel, strong acceleration, fantastic brakes. The Lapis blue metallic literally glows day or night-a real attention getter. CD player and radio worked great without being an overkill, although the instruction booklet sucks.
Cons: The optional 18 inch Pirelli P-zeros wear down very fast. Replace them with the new "Rosso" version to get better wear (or switch to Dunlops). Not enough space (passenger or storage) inside the cabin.
Overall review: If you plan to spend $100,000 or less on a sports car that can do 0-60 in 5 seconds or less, you are looking at the 911, the Corvette, and the Viper. The Corvette is heavy and ponderous by comparison, but the Z06 engine is fantastic. The Chevy 6-speed, however, is no comparison to Porsche's. The Viper is the most powerful of the bunch, but the engine feels like it has been taken out of a monster truck. The body also groan and moan in switch back turns. The level of refinement attained in the 911 C4 does not have an equal in american makes. Pay the higher price and be happy.
