What’s wrong with the Porsche 996?


I’ve just finished writing a feature for GT Porsche on the Porsche 996. The first of the watercooled Porsche 911s, much has been written about the 996 in the past but, sadly, a lot of it has been negative.

What I’ve done, is taken a fresh positive approach to the Porsche 996 and argued that, actually, it’s a very good 911. I’m not going to give away the whole story, you’ll need to wait for the magazine to come out for that, but I really do like the 996 and believe it deserves more respect in the Porsche world. Find a good one, and it will be a joy to drive and own. In fact, here’s one that we’re selling.
