  • I would say that the primary reason the 996 is so much cheaper than the 997 is the IMS bearing in non-turbo models. Personally, the headlights don't bother me; it's still a great car.

  • The light on the door illuminates the ignition barrel and the pic on the fuse box cover is showing you where to apply power if your battery goes flat... not where the battery is located! As the front trunk is opened by an electric switch it obviously won’t open with a flat battery. They have a jump point behind that cover so you can power the car enough to open the front trunk.

  • For fucks sakes Doug, headlights are not the reason why these are cheap. 1. Reliability issues, IMS bearing etc. 2. First aircooled car being compared to the finest aircooled. One is a recent development and the other has been fine tuned for a half a century. 3. It shared parts with Boxsters, like the headlights. Journalists and purists got mad. 4. Tiptronic is optioned to very many turbos, and that sucks when compared to manual. Why all of these are bullshit 1. Sure the aircooled cars don't have IMS-bearing issues but those engines need major overhauls (so more expensive to maintain) 2. Pretty sure this turbo would have run rings around 993 Turbo back in the day. 3. Cost-cutting was needed and people cried. I'm pretty sure the Cayenne was accepted better than this when it launched. 4. Tiptronic is just shit

  • These so-called enthusiasts/purists complaining about air vs. water/oil cooled and irregular shaped headlights are the same guys who wear gloves to change their windshield wipers. Porsche actually wanted to move to water/oiled cooled for the 964 car but didn't have the budget. Remember, their GT1 cars were water/oil cooled and had the eggy lights for a reason. Another point, what car-guy complains about the interior of a car? Oh, yeah, the same guy who wears gloves to put air in the tires. Snowflake much?

  • My dad has pretty much the exact same car just as a soft top convertible, the headlights look nice or at least ok to me but man the car is fast as fuck. It just starts pulling so hard as the turbos push more and more air into the engine. It feels like an airplane to me. Beautiful car 😍 and the shine of the silver on my dads turbo is so nice the paint job looks brand new and she is a 2005 model has 39k miles.

Head lights are gorgeous on this low mile PORSCHE Red / Black - BTW, what car exists today with the same round headlights from the 50's - 60's anyhow? NONE. Has anybody noticed those GAY LOOKING Christmas sparkly lights they've put on everything lately that look like total Crap!

  • Ugly exterior and interior. And no, Doug, it was no improvement on the 993. The 993 looks minimalistically classic. The 996 looks like a plastic explosion. But - It’s still a super good bargain, and I’d love to own one.

  • 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.
