Porsche 996: Buying guide & review (1997-2004) Classic and Performance Car
Porsche 996 Porsche 996 Porsche 996 Porsche 996 Porsche 996 Porsche 996 Porsche 996
The Porsche 911 is one of the most recognised and popular sports cars in the automotive world, and when a new version is launched it gets analysed and picked apart by enthusiasts. Changes made to the basic formula can be met with a fair amount of criticism, with fans yearning for the good old days of great steering feel and air-cooled goodness. 
 
With the launch of the 996-generation car in 1998, Porsche had to make some of the most radical changes to its tried and tested 911 recipe since its inception, to ensure compliance with upcoming emissions and safety regulations. 
 
The previous 993 had roots traceable to the original 911 of 1963, and with 30 years of continuous development behind it, was not an easy car to replace. Porsche wasn’t in a good way financially at the time either, meaning something was needed to turn the company’s fortunes around.
 
When the 996 Carrera arrived on the scene in 1998, that’s exactly what it did. Despite being measurably better in every way, and selling very well, many Porsche purists bemoaned the liquid cooled engine, ‘fried egg’ headlights and more cocooned driving experience. During the intervening years however, most of these strong opinions have softened as they have come to terms with the car for what it offer, a fantastic driving experience at an affordable price. 
 
However, while the 996 remains among the most affordable 911 models, it is not as cheap as it once was. Now the stigma of those engine faults and front headlights has all but vanished, people have woken up the the 996’s great qualities, and prices have been on an upward trajectory for the past few years.
 

Which 996 to buy?

 
The two most attainable and numerous models are the early 3.4 and facelifted 3.6 litre Carreras. There has been a lot of negative press about the 996 in the past, and a lot of it is down to the fact that early Carreras suffered premature engine problems. In recent years however, there has been a marked increase in the demand for these cars, as updates and specialist fixes have addressed most of the niggling and expensive issues with the earlier cars. 
 
You have a choice of Targa, Convertible and Coupe body shells in the Carrera range. Six-speed manual or five-speed Tiptronic gearboxes are available and four wheel drive could be specified with any combination of these body styles. In 2002 Porsche introduced the Carrera 4S in face lifted form, this car sported the bodykit, wheels and brakes from the Turbo models as well as four-wheel drive. It has become a desirable second hand purchase and is one of the best looking 996s. 
 
There are a few cars out there with the factory fitted X51 performance package. This gave 25 more bhp and can be identified by an all aluminium intake manifold instead of the black plastic item on the standard cars.
 
Cheap 996s can still be found, but make sure that the car you are looking at has a solid service history as any previous scrimping on oil changes and regular maintenance will probably come back to haunt you down the line. These cars also benefit from regular use so ultra low mileage examples might also cause a few headaches down the line.
 
Then there are of course the more special models, starting with the GT3 and GT3 RS, leading right up to the completely wild GT2. Standard 996 Turbo models were once a performance bargain, however prices are now considerably higher than they once were. The GT3 models have always been touted as the drivers’ choice, and this is still the case today. While every 911 is a joy, the GT3 remains the most focused and rewarding of the 996 generation. Our guide doesn’t cover these more specialist models in depth, however much of the normal 996 foibles also affect the special models.

Common problems

 
• These cars are modern classics, meaning that spares availability is not going to be a problem, with more than enough Porsche specialists catering for 996s. Modifications, engine upgrades and general parts are all there for the taking.
 
• By far the most common and well documented problem with the M96 engine in the 996 is a failing intermediate shaft bearing (IMS). You might be excused for thinking that every single 996 is on the verge of sending valves and pistons spewing into the air, however the truth is somewhat less dramatic.
 
• While the problem is no doubt real, it is far less prevalent than it is often made out to be, and generally cars that are around today have had upgraded components and modifications carried out to minimise the risk of these failures occurring. 
 
• There are many specialists who can check whether your car has had the modified items retrofitted, and for peace of mind this is vital.
 
• A leaking rear main seal is also very common, but is not the end of the world. The advice is to live with a minor oil leak until the clutch needs to be replaced. As the gearbox needs to be removed to replace the seal with an official uprated Porsche part, this is the most cost effective course of action. doing next as the gearbox has to be removed to get to the seal. 
 
• Bore scoring is another issue that has been noted on some cars, and a bore scope by a reputable specialist can ascertain whether your car has any issues in this area.
 
• Engine cooling is paramount in these cars, so check that all hoses look healthy, and that all the servicing has been carried out regularly on the cooling system. The radiator is mounted in the front bumper, and the fins can become clogged up with leaves and other dirt leading to overheating issues.
 
• The engines are well built and aside from the seal and bearing issues mentioned above, they are long lasting. Misfiring issues can usually be traced to failing coil packs. Many examples are used as track day cars, while others have amassed huge mileages. Regular oil changes are crucial to ensuring a long service life.
 
• Suspension is durable and tends not to have any particular weak points to watch out for. Creaking or unusual noises may indicate that the control arms have been damaged and need replacing, which is not an unduly expensive job.
 
• Gearboxes are also long lasting and clutches do not wear out prematurely. The Tiptronic gearbox cooling pipes can rust over time but replacement parts are reasonably priced.
 
• Rust is not a common problem on the 996 so any evidence of bubbles under the paint on on any of the body panels may be due to badly repaired accident damage, which is sagly not that uncommon.
 

Model history

 
1997: 296bhp water cooled Carrera 3.4 introduced, initially in rear-wheel drive Coupe and Convertible styles.
2000: Tiptronic gearbox could now be used in manual mode with steering wheel buttons.
2002: All standard Carreras received minor face lift including revisions to the controversial headlamps. Engine capacity increased to 3.6-litres, producing 315bhp and Variocam Plus to further improve mid range torque. Targa body shape introduced, alongside the Carrera 4S with Turbo body kit introduced. 
2004: Last 996 Carrera rolls of the production line. Turbo S, GT3 and GT2 variants continue up to 2005, with approximately 175,000 of all types built.

Summary and prices

 
Starting at £10,000 for a very early high mileage Carrera 3.4, prices generally go up to £25,000 for a last of the line Carrera 4S. Well-presented Carreras generally fall somewhere in the middle, with £15,000 getting you a 2002 model with full service history. 
 
Regular GT3 models start from £55,000, heading to £75,000 for a top example, with the later RS often commanding in excess of £100k. Turbo models currently start at around £30,000, with really good examples coming in closer to £50,000. How about the GT2? Prices start at £100k, with some dealers asking north of £150k for the best.
 
Values are definitely on the rise across the board, as the true worth of these early water-cooled 911s is starting to be appreciated. Choose the right specification with a comprehensive service history and you will have many years of enjoyable motoring ahead of you.

    Vehicle Description In stock now is this outrageous Porsche / Gemballa GTR 500. Starting life as a standard 996 Carrera 2 Convertible the car was converted by German tuning house Gemballa (themselves an interesting story) at a reported cost of £275,000 to their GTR 500 specification. The car has covered just 25,000 miles from new. With a good spec as standard the car made an ideal basis for the Gemballa conversion; cruise control, electric windows and mirrors, electric seats with drivers memory, factory hardtop, heated seats etc. The Gemballa conversion took the power output to a stated 500 BHP, a fairly substantial increase on the original 320! In addition to the engine conversion the car was fitted with the full Gemballa dashboard conversion, 19″ Gemballa split rim wheels and the flamboyant bodystyling Gemballa was famed for. Having been sold in the UK some time later Gemballa bought the car back to have in their own in-house museum where it lived for some years. The engine has just been freshly rebuilt so it is ready to be enjoyed again. A very rare and unusual example.

  • Porsche 996 GT2

    £109,995 £109,995

    Porsche 996 GT2 MK1 RHD 2003. Launched for 2001 model year, the 996 GT2 arrived with a twin turbocharged GT3 specification engine producing 462BHP through a stiffened rear wheel drive chassis. With 0-60 MPH in 3.7 seconds, 0-125mph in 11.6 seconds and a top speed just shy of 200mph and with no driver aids, the GT2 makes for a formidable and focussed driving experience that punishes inexperienced drivers who over step the mark hence acquiring the nickname `the widow maker`. A car we have owned before, this example is finished in Lapis Blue pearl and is in excellent condition throughout, no accident damage and just 46,000 miles from new with supporting service history, the car has also been fitted with a stainless-steel exhaust system by Milltek, the original exhaust system is supplied with the car. Rare, low number 911's are still hot property, and with only 113 mk1's registered in the UK, this car certainly falls into that catagory. A great drive but also a shrewd investment too.
