Introduced in 1998, the 996 generation of the venerable 911 was a dramatic departure from its predecessors. A whole new chassis, water cooled engined and significant electronics were the biggest differences. While fast and capable, many enthusiasts lamented the changes and the 996 has become one of the least like Porsches in history. Despite enthusiasts complaints, the 996 sold well and was still an excellent performance car. While air-cooled models have stratospheric prices and newer examples are just as pricey, the 996 represents a bargain of modern performance, classic heritage, and lower prices.
