Cool Even To Wash! — Such a cool car to drive on NZ roads. it's even cool to wash it! Build not too bad with excellent mechanics but interior and trip switches not that hot. Would like to own a 997 at a later date.

Favorite Car Of All Time — I love everything about this car except the occasional maintenance needed which can be a real hassle in rural Virginia. It's beautiful, fun and makes me feel like a million bucks every time I drive it. What else can you say that about?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

It is Magic

Cons

I Love It — I bought this on impulse as a daily driver. Very refined interior, love the leather dash. Handles like magic, nice linear power band, AWS and stability control make it the best winter vehicle I have owned. Power gets boring after a while and not much room for mods, Lack of trunk and interior space.

Few Words For The 996 Turbo — you're gonna love this baby. drives like a luxury car. feels like a race car. a bit bumpy with its stiff suspension. not quite a head turner but keeps those japs and italians behind your back from the street. just have to drive it twice a week to avoid car problems.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Classic design and great performance

Cons

There is no reason to avoid this car. It is a motoring icon.

Porsche Build The Best Sports Cars — 996 has great performance and handling. The build quality is high which is the cornerstone of Porsche cars generally. I think the styling of the 996 is beautiful and was unduly criticised. Cost of ownership - economical. It's a fun car!

Pros

Solid performance car, built with passion.

Cons

Not quite as pure as some of the past 911's

996 Targa — The car is a blast to drive, braking and handling are top notch, slightly more power would be nice. Porsche build quality is top notch and the car has yet to have anything other then normal maintenance done to it. The interior is very ergonomic, however the seats lack the support needed in a car of this performance level. Overall this car puts a smile on my face every time!

Fast, comfortable, handles well out of the box

Cons

I Love My 996 — Fast, can be driven to track, then to get groceries, and after that a cross-country trip. Been using it to 'commute' to Philadelphia area for work, and has performed without a hitch the entire time I've owned it. Plus, it's bee-yootiful... This was my first-ever new car, and it was well-worth the off-lot depreciation to know every mile was mine! I've owned several Porsches and heard the silliness about air-cooled versus water-cooled (I have examples of each), and it's just that... silliness. I do have to agree somewhat with the question of 996 'eyeballs', but at least mine has the later fried-eggs and not the Boxster 'droopy eyes'.

Porsche Is The Best! — I LOVE IT!!! BEST Performance – acceleration, braking, handling RMS is known problem in 996 version Cost of Ownership – High. All parts are made in germany and cost 3-4X of the usual cars. Takes ONLY premium gas and not too good on milage.. BUT WHO CARES??? Fun Factor- NO LIMITS - I still havent pushed the limits of this car .. but I can take a U-turn at 40mph with not a single squeek or screech .. thats what the Porsche engineering is..

Best of both worlds....not a cab and not just a coupe!

Cons

Clutch plate, brakes & disks as well as tyres only lasted 15,000km

Cool Car! — One of the coolest cars I've ever owned. Fast, elegant and a brilliant everyday drive! I've got one of the few that doesn't rattle but the wind noise at high speed is a bit rough. Cost of ownership a little bit high! Fantastic on the road and fun on the track.

2002 Porsche 996c4 Review — It's the best car i have ever owned; great performance, gorgeous outlook, nice quality! It's the pride of owning a true porsche 911! Never been happier the car i received my car. Even though it's not as fun as driving my M3, it's way better to drive a porsche than a M3. The corner turning is a lot better (stock to stock comparison), and the pulling is not bad. Overall, a true great car!
