Fun winter beater by Jack on 05/12/2013. Trim: 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Engineering, styling, quality, handling
Cons: Typical 996 potential problems - IMS Bearing, Rear Main Seal, Potential Oil Leaks and Cylinder Problems
Overall review: Great value as a used vehicle if you are skilled as a DIY technician and have access to the proper tools. A potential financial nightmare if you don't. I have six other 996 models and in general they are fairly solid.

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
