"I shopped around for about two years, then bought a 2003 3.6 996. I have put 15,000 miles on the car in the past year,change the oil every 5000 miles. The cool thing about having a 9.5 qt capacity is that the oil is still doing its job and in good shape at 5000 miles,do to the capacity. If you are shopping for a 911, I recommend getting the traction control delete 2 wheel drive 3.6. Compare the performance numbers between the 3.4 and 3.6, then compare the c2, c4 ,c4s i think you will be surprised."

"I bought this car to replace my 1994 Nissan 300zx. I bought it with about 60,000 miles on it and have driven it about 15K miles in the last 3 years. The car is lots of fun to drive, has some quickness, feels light, steering has great road feel. The ride is much more comfortable than I expected, even on bad roads and gas mileage is a fairly pleasant 19 mp.g. in mixed driving. On the other hand the interior looks very chintzy and plasticky for a luxury sports car but the real issue is reliability. Soon after buying it I had the rear main seal leak (very common). Due to the all electronics the battery will also die if not driven often and the electronic hood release doesn't seem like a well thought out feature. The main issue is a stalling issue that the dealer can't fix. Spent thousands (replace purge valve 3x, carbon canister 2x, and a host of other things). Getting rid of it since car can't seem to be fixed and isn't really driveable currently. Would I buy another - yes. It is so sharp and fun to drive I might try once more but I wouldn't own another 996 model if it was given for free."

"I think the 911-4 S is one on the most beautiful sports cars on the market. It is not the most comfortable or quite car, but it is a sports car. Stiff handling for good road control etc. Lots of power. And the most beautiful styling out there especially the 911 4- and the turbo with the air-vent etc."

"This is my 2th 911 and probably last! This is a fast 6 speed with lots of goodies built in! It gets good mileage on the open road and so so in town! It's a 40th edition model with 1963 made for this year! It has no issues so far and can't see any with proper maintenance! It's a great car to drive and when you put it through the gears have plenty of open road ahead of you!! It's fast and a great sound of Porsche!!"

Car has been lowered one inch with the adjustable Bilstien dampering system.

"This car was bought with low miles and completely gone through due to the history of this year and model. The IMS bearing was replaced, the cam was adjusted with the fuel mix, a sport suspension was installed (Bilstein PS10's) and 18" sportline wheels were put on with Bridgestone Potenza's. This car is a rocket! It drives and handles like no other."
