2002 Porsche 911 Reviews
The 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera is an iconic classic. Designated as the 996 replacing the previous 993 in 1999, it is the first of the water cooled 911's. In 2002 the normalle aspirated flat six cylinder was uprated to 320bhp. These highly evolved sports cars put the power to the ground like only a rear engined Porsche can. The steering is the best in the business with brakes to match. This car can be put straight onto a race track and make good times. It is comfortable and easy to drive everyday. It actually has a back seat and a decent amount of storage and trunk space.
