    996 vrs. 997

    Hello,
    I currently have an 03 C4S with 6500. miles. Black/Black. Bought new and I love the car.
    I was in Atlanta last week and drove a Black 997. Great car. I hope not to offend anyone, but what is the big deal? I thought the car would be more exciting than the 996. Don't get me wrong, it is a fantastic car. But I wouldn't trade my C4S for a somewhat stripped down Carrera S.
    Am I missing something? I don't know very much about the engines in either car. If someone could kindly explain why this car (997) is superior, I would love the knowledge!

    Re: 996 vrs. 997

    The plain jane 997 is nowhere near the car that a 996 C4S is, fact. The 997S is a different beast all together, bigger engine(3.8vs3.6), more hp/tq. The S suspension is updated as well.
    I agree with you, I wouldn't trade my C4S in on either one, just not enough of a step up, more of a lateral move. A 997GT3 or TT might be different, but ALOT more mulla schmulla($). Besides, once you've had awd, can't go back!
    I already have 25K hard, daily driver, track miles on my bitch, and it loves it and I love it!
