Porsche 996 Buying Guide

The Porsche 996 the Ugly Duckling.  Prices below £10k. for a Porsche with 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds, a £60+k car when new.    The later 3.6L car are twice the price but  will be worth the same as a 3.4L over time, the smart money is on the 3.4L

They sold a lot of cars for a model people didn’t like, who knows the value may increase as the numbers decline.  We think the GT3 and Turbo are legendary and will  increase in value. The 996 represents a great package, great handling, speed and comfort.  Some have been prone to engine and IMS bearing failures.

Recommend a good mechanical check before buying.
