Now in our Houston Showroom is a super-hot 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet AWD. This slick silver 911 is sure to get you noticed and provides a gorgeous blend of class and sophistication. With its classic Porsche styling and smooth body lines, this German machine is ready to cruise on the open road. At the touch of a button, the entire convertible top disengages from the windshield tucks away neatly behind the rear seat. This car also features the matching removable hard top option so you are set in all weather conditions. Drive in Automatic mode, or switch to manual on the Tiptronic transmission and put the 3.4L V6 rear mounted engine to the test. When Ferdinand Porsche set up his first shop in 1948 producing 40-horsepower rear engine sports cars I'm sure he never dreamed of what was possible in automobile engineering. From the introduction of the 356, Porsche has kept a low-slung, smooth-lined comfortable sports car as the staple of its brand. The styling has become so iconic that even novices can distinguish a Porsche from any other brand, with naught but a mere glance.
The interior is trimmed in grey premium leather, which really coordinates with the metallic silver exterior. Options on this 911 include A/C, a AM/FM CD player, heated front bucket seats, 5-speed Tiptronic transmission, full power convertible top, cruise control, traction control, P/W P/S, P/B, Airbags, and remote keyless entry. This car is a blast to drive, and with the 175 MPH speedometer and 7,000 RPM redline tachometer, you have a feeling of speed and performance before you even turn the key. This car handles like a slotcar, cornering with aplomb. With its narrow hood and flared front and rear fenders, this car is a pleasure to look at, for sure; but the fun doesn't stop there! The 3.4 Liter naturally-aspirated flat-six engine produced 300 bhp in 2000, getting this little gem moving from 0-60 in under 5 seconds. This Porsche is available in our Houston Showroom, where it can be seen in person; or in "virtual mode" at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
