Porsche is proud to present our model overview for 2004. This model-year, the Carrera® GT, the 911® GT3, the 911 Carrera 4S and Turbo Cabriolets, and the Cayenne (V6) join the Boxster®, 911 and Cayenne®.

A 205-mph (330 km/h) track speed Porsche supercar, a car some already are calling the Porsche for purists, cabriolet models of the 911 Carrera 4S and the 911 Turbo, and a V6 Cayenne model join the Porsche parade for the 2004 model year.

The following is a brief look at each 2004 Porsche model.



Porsche Carrera GT

The 2004 Porsche Carrera GT empowers its driver with the more than 600 horsepower generated by its 5.7-liter, normally aspirated V10 Porsche engine. To provide an unprecedented driving experience, the Carrera GT is a showcase of cutting-edge automotive construction and component technologies and brings to the roadway the undiluted qualities of a Le Mans-winning Porsche racecar.


Porsche 911 GT2

Powered by Porsche’s most powerful production six-cylinder “boxer” engine, the
win-turbocharged Porsche 911 GT2 has been generously modified for 2004 with new tuning to the engine, chassis, suspension and brakes. The result is a twin-turbocharged, rear-drive sports car with 477 horsepower (SAE) and such standard features as ABS 5.7 and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB®) discs.


Porsche 911 GT3

With 380 horsepower (SAE) to propel its lighter chassis, the 911 GT3 is the most powerful normally aspirated six-cylinder “boxer” engine production Porsche for 2004. A pure sports car with seats for just the driver and one passenger, the 911 GT3 is capable of accelerating from a standing start to 60 mph (97 km/h) in a mere 4.3 seconds. Though based on the 911 Carrera Coupe, the GT3 features a higher-revving engine, special aerodynamics for its lightened but reinforced body, and brakes even larger than those used on the Porsche 911 Turbo.


Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet

With twin turbochargers extracting 415 horsepower (SAE) from its 3.6-liter, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, the 2004 Porsche 911 Turbo is among the most powerful sports cars on the road, and now customers will have the option of enjoying that power without a roof over their heads as the 911 Turbo Cabriolet joins the Porsche lineup. However, power without control can be nothing more than chaos, so all-wheel drive, Porsche Stability Management and other advanced technologies help the 911 Turbo driver maintain control in the Coupe or Cabriolet.


Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe and Cabriolet

The “S” badge on a Porsche signifies a special model, one with performance enhancements, not just cosmetic changes. Thus for several years, the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S has been the car of choice for the enthusiast driver who appreciates the performance provided by Porsche’s 315-horsepower (SAE), normally aspirated six-cylinder engine but who also wants the look and all-wheel drive of the even higher-performance Porsche 911 Turbo. For 2004, that look also includes an unobstructed view from the new Porsche Carrera 4S Cabriolet model.


Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet

Based on the Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, the 2004 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet offers buyers the confidence that comes with all-wheel drive. Instead of having all of the normally aspirated 3.6-liter “boxer” engine’s 315 horsepower (SAE) going to the rear wheels, Porsche’s lightweight all-wheel drive system sends as much as 40 percent of its power to the front wheels to help drivers handle those unexpected twists and turns while also adding traction in inclement weather.


Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa

The benchmark for the modern sports car celebrates its 40th birthday during the 2004 model year and is available in Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa models. Powered by a 315 horsepower (SAE) six-cylinder “boxer” engine, the Porsche 911 Carrera is everything that a sports car should be. It is fun to drive, powerful and precise, and can be driven to work on weekdays and then raced on the tracks during weekends.


40th Anniversary 911

To celebrate the 911’s 40th anniversary and its 1963 introduction, 1,963 copies of the special 40th Anniversary 911 will be produced. These cars will be powered by a 345 horsepower (DIN) version of the 3.6-liter flat-six engine and will have enhanced handling features, and unique interior and exterior styling.


Porsche Boxster and Porsche Boxster S

Taking their name from their “boxer” engines and their “roadster” architecture, the Porsche Boxster and the higher-performance Porsche Boxster S are the pure expression of the classic, two-seat, open-top roadster sports car. Wrapped in a package that recalls such famous Porsche racers as the 550 Spyder and the RS60, the 2004 Porsche Boxster is powered by a 225 horsepower (SAE), 2.7-liter normally aspirated six-cylinder “boxer” engine while the Porsche Boxster S draws its power from a 3.2-liter six that generates 258 horsepower (SAE).


50 Years of the 550 Spyder - Special Edition Boxster S

Now, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of its famous and lightweight sports car, Porsche unveils a special edition of the Porsche Boxster S. Wearing special “50 Years of the 550 Spyder” badging, only 1953 of these very special vehicles will be produced. They have boosted the 3.2-liter flat-six engine’s output to 264 horsepower (SAE), up from 258.


Porsche Cayenne, Cayenne S and Porsche Cayenne Turbo

The Porsche Cayenne, Cayenne S and Porsche Cayenne Turbo are Porsche’s interpretation of the sport utility vehicle, which means they actually put the emphasis on sport. While providing the sure-footed, four-wheel-drive dexterity as well as the roomy and luxurious interior that modern families expect of their SUV, the Cayenne, Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo add on-road dynamic capabilities that make a sport utility feel like a sport car. The Cayenne features a 3.2-liter V6 engine tuned by Porsche engineers to produce 247 horsepower (SAE). The Cayenne S is powered by a normally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 that provides 340 horsepower (SAE), while the twin-turbocharged Cayenne Turbo produces 450 horsepower (SAE).
