    Here is my 996 C2 Cabriolet when I owned it. Enjoyed it very much. Never had a single problem.

    Haha, so the 'hideous' looking 996 was the entry point to Porsche for a lot of us

    Re: 996 lovers

    Love to see those old 996 pics you own guys.

    I had mine during three years and then it blown the engine. Put a recon at Porsche and sold it just after. It was a funny car to drive, much more easy to play than 997.2, but the engine was a time bomb and before it blew I was trying to sell it because of that. 997.2 is a much better product in all aspects, driving pleasure apart, still I would never ever buy one again.

    Re: 996 lovers

    Well, as much as I loved the G, 964, and 993, the 996 along with the cosmetically identical (front view) 986 were the Kanban cars that saved Porsche from extinction.

    The 996 is the car that made today's success at Porsche possible.  That's not an exaggeration.

    I barely like to admit it... Smiley Smiley

    Not quite though...my entry point was a 993 Targa and I really regretted it (got it without a test drive because everyone was raving about how good the 911 is...). Drove a M3 E36 before that, so it was quite the cultural shock. Smiley It was like switching from a modern car to a classic VW Beetle. Smiley Smiley
