  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class worse.
"An engine designed for that. SLK is a great cross between a performance car and a fun to drive, sports car. I think the SLK is vastly more practical."
Handling Ranked 2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class worse.
"Quicker response. SLK is more like a conventional power steering, only tighter."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class worse.
"With the two back seats, and the small front trunk, the 911 handles more luggage."
Family Car Ranked 2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class better.
"If its a family of two. Even then, not much room for a trip luggage."

Back Seats Ranked 2002 Porsche 911 better.
"Just the fact that the 911s have a relatively useable back seat is amazing."
Family Car Ranked 2002 Porsche 911 better.
"All Porsches are great driving cars, no matter whom in the family is driving them."

Great Car To Own! — The Porsche navigation system was nearly antiquated as soon as it came of the production line. Disks are overpriced and not easily obtained. I recommend getting upgrades to add finishing touches to the vehicle. Exhaust, wheels, and a clear bra will do the trick.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 911's have a classic Porsche look to them, have enjoyed owning this vehicle.

Cons: The floor mat on the driver side slides forward, which is annoying.

Best Car On The Planet For $20k — You will read lots about this model of the 911 (called the 996) and see that it has a IMS bearing that fails and destroys the engine. And that is possible. About 5% 1999-2004 have failed. If you shop for a car that has maintenance records and you have the oil changed and check the filter for metal bits you should be ok. I chose this car carefully, then I took the car in and had the IMS bearing replaced with an aftermarket one with a warranty. This will cost an additional $3k, but it is worth it as a new engine will cost $10k+. The 911 model before the 996 is the 993, and one will run you 45 to 80k. The 911 model after the 996 is the 997 and one of those will run you 35 to 50k. That makes this model a bargain, and a very fun car to own.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A $80,000+ car for Mid $20k.
300 hp and 3,000 lbs = Fantastic acceleration and handling.

Cons: This is a performance machine and should be worked on by trained professionals.  Around here that will cost $150 and hour shop rate at an independent shop, and about $175 and hour at the Porsche Dealer. But meticulous maintenance will allow you to drive this car for a long time.

I love the 992. It is the best 911 so far in my opinion. I prefer the S version for additional power. It is an expensive car but the experience is like no other. Read More

It wasn’t too appealing knowing it’s a coupe with not much power to accelerate. I’d rather go for a GT3 though it costs more but it’s worth the money. Read More
