About this Porsche 996 Carrera 4 In 1998 the new Porsche 911, also known as the 996 was introduced. This car had the very important mission of rescuing Porsche as a independent car-manufacturer. This new 911 is the first in 34 years that is so new compared with the previous models. First of all the bodywork is complete new, as is the interior and the suspension. The headlights, like a lot of other components are shared with the boxster, but Porsche implies they were designed for the 911, and then used for the boxster. The typical curved flanks have made way for a smooth new look. Door handles are now flush fitted. Even the so much loved air-cooled engine, was after 34 years replaced by a water-cooled one for environmental reasons. The overall length of the car has increased by 185mm and width has increased by 30mm. The 996 came with a choice of either a six speed manual gearbox or Porsche's semi automatic tiptronic transmission, the performance figures for both versions unsurprisingly being faster than those of the 993. The top speed was 171mph whilst zero to sixty took a blistering 5.2 seconds or 6 seconds dead for tiptronic versions. This car features: 18" Carrerea wheels, Sound
