Great video Doug. Having owned a 996C2 and now a 996 Turbo the main different is the engine and suspension setup, it's another level in the turbo.

i remember when I was a kid I liked the headlights on this one. It looked more modern and aggressive. I was disappointed when they went back to more conservative styling with the 997. And now I still don’t mind the headlights. It’s not a big deal. They look just as good as the classics. And I agree the rest of the car looks awesome. A simple case where people are too close minded and whiny.

Doug, you're wrong about this car's interior - it sucks. The Type 993, 997 and 991 ALL have the "classic" long dashboard of the 70s and 80s cars. Only this one strayed with its "bulbous" dashboard styling. Overall, while still an iconic Porsche, the 996 just isn't as appealing as the interiors/exteriors of the aforementioned cars. The new 992.2 has that classic interior design theme. Hopefully it stays that way for future 911 generations going forward for the sake of traditional styling.

It’s a bargain right up to the point when it needs two new turbos because they have rotted.

The 993 interior with it's five round instruments i a classic timeless one, the 996 interior looks just what it is, dated. The 996 makes you look like the guy who could not afford a more expensive Porsche and that us probably the case.

I know I'm in the total minority here, but I actually like the look of the headlights; and not just because they're different from eeevveerrry other 911; I personally think the front end just looks more sophisticated with these lights. The plain, boring round ones might be the 'classic' look, but that doesn't mean that EVERY model 911 has to have them... What if that extended to other aspects, like say, steering wheel? Or the wheels themselves? Anyway, I like 'em, and I pointed out this situation (regarding the 996) to my brother, and two months later he got a 996 4S..! However, being in LA, he went to one a better one of the many specialty Porsche shops, who sprinkled magic voodoo dust on the engine, and now it ROARS! Well, the aftermarket exhaust contributes to that as well, but supposedly it has between 465 and 475 HP now, and having driven it, I'd believe that number no problem. With the custom wheels and new Pirellis, he's in for about $40k, and it's a car with $80k's worth of grins & giggles under the hood... Gotta love a 911, no matter what!

The major reason and more than the headlights, is the 996 was the first with an water-cooled engine. 993s are a premium as they are the last of the air-cooled motors. The 996 was also the first time the 911 became a lot larger

A Porsche 911 X50 aren't exactly cheap. I can only find one in my area for sale and it's 65k. Even at 45k its expensive. Car has way to much plastic and you can get better Porsche's for 45-65k.

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills when people say they prefer round headlights to these. I've always felt that the rounds ones are so damn dorky looking, it reminds me of a kids drawing of a car. Don't get me wrong, I'd be just as happy behind the wheel of a 993, but not anything that came after 996.

Things Doug neglected to mention: - The REAL reason that most "purists" (yeah, a little eyeroll there) prefer the 993 has more to do with the fact that it's the last generation to be air cooled (vs water cooled). Those ugly headlights were just a nail in the coffin. - The butterfly knife in the glove box.

the "battery front trunk" icon on the lid of fuse box is to let owners know that they can connect a portable battery charger to that location and any metal part (door hinge) to unlatch front hood. This is for folks who have dead battery. Most folks don't know that..and therefore have a tough time jumping the car because of locked front hood.

Swapping to 997 front end(saw some kits, look awesome) and getting rear led lights is like a Fountain of Youth for this model, non Porsche guys probably won't be able to distinguish its age without interior check.

I think another big reason the 996 is loathed by Porsche fans is it was the first water cooled 911 truly marking the end of what people would consider a "classic Porsche". As for I would take the 996 all day over dealing with all the issues the air cooled engine comes with namely oil. Both in terms of leaks and the fact that they hold something like 11 or more quarts of it.

My dad owned a 1978 930 turbo with over 25k of engine work done back in 05. It was long before they became super high dollar cars. THAT was a car. I've driven almost every version of the 911, vipers, vettes, Ferrari 360's, m5's, etc. That 930 was a creature designed by its own master. Absolutely insane and a pure drivers car that would pull the smile off your face and transform it into fear reincarnate. Such a beautiful experience. The white with lobster red interior made it even better. Good god I miss that car.

Those ugly headlights have the same part number as the headlights. What alienates 911 owners and wannabe owners is that the 996 model was scavenging parts from the Boxster. Potential buyers were turned off that the 996 did not have higher-quality, more-exclusive bits than the lower-end Boxster. It's not just that the headlights are ugly but they representing that Porsche was borrowing parts from Boxster.
OrNoir Pirms 2 Mēnešiem
Have never understood why the looks of this car were contrived into such a sticking point; let’s be honest here, though not hideous, the 911 is, in its fundamental design, a very long way from the prettiest car ever made. Hating the 996 for its looks is to completely miss the point of the 911. I guess that doesn’t occur to the unfortunate number of dull bellends that drive the things, sadly.

I actually got one of these wow i guess about 16ish years ago now. I purchased a used one with a few k miles @90k. Sold it with just under 20k miles for 88k lol. It had the full Aero package. That made a huge difference in appearance. I loved that fixed rear wing. Hahha. I got pulled over and was searched * long story but the officer never looked inside the door storage
