It was my dream car as a kid and even though I had to go used I have no complaints or regrets. I found a cherry '01 manual with only 26k on the clock, all original with removable hardtop. My daily driver is a '09 BMW 335i coupe auto. That car, as great as it is, does not draw compliments like the 911. It's a statement to how timeless the design really is. Surprising the 911 is just as fast as my 8 year newer BMW. At today's prices the 996 are a super bargain right now. My friends thought it was new. I suggest searching out a good example, park it in the garage and drive it for another 10 years.
Styling, rawness to the power, rear engine note at full throttle. 6 speed. Removable hardtop. 18" Turbo twist wheels.
cupholders are a joke but who cares. Buy bottled water and throw it on the passenger seat. Stereo speakers are weak.
