Everyone knows the 911 so we will skip to the 996 variant which happed in 1999 and was probably one of the most controversial things Porsche had done to date with the inception of its water cooled design 911 over the favorable air cooled cars that had been in place for over 34 years in the 911. It also shared the front end of the less expensive little brother Boxster. Nonetheless Porsche did what it had to do to survive the changing times which they did. Now what we have is some extremely affordable fun, that does not come with some headaches as they had some mechanical issues up front and at the time of the early IMS fixes were quite costly. Luckily the cost has come down and you can get a driver quality Porsche Sports car for the cost of a used Toyota Camry. This particular car is going to be the one you want. Not only has it been well taken care of from new, it has received the IMS fix in 2017 that was done by a reputable Porsche mechanic, a full hydraulic replacement for the convertible top in 2015 and upgraded stereo. This car has all service records since day one, owners manuals and both sets of keys. The tires and brakes are great and this car is literally ready for whatever you throw at it. The paint still shines nice with the expected wear and tear for a 100K mile car. Everything is in working order and is looking for its new home.
