About Porsche 996 Turbo

There are few cars more beloved than the Porsche Carrera, also known as the 911. Fanatics are familiar with the designations that each generation receives, and the Porsche 996 Turbo is one of the crowning models, one which carried the car into the 21st century without disappointment. The Porsche 911 was first created in 1963 and was always a vicious, air-cooled two-seater. The 996, rolled out in 1998, is the first liquid-cooled model, representing a major change in the car's history. It is equipped with a snappy 3.4-liter H6 engine and either a five-speed or six-speed manual transmission, depending on the model. Its redesigned body style was the inspiration behind the now-venerable GT2 and GT3 models. These two iterations of the Porsche 996 Turbo bring the power and feather-light quality of a Formula 1 racer to the street. However, such muscle and minimalism has been known to make cars take flight. Fortunately, the Porsche 996 Turbo wing acts with enough downforce to keep the car grounded at high speeds. Having a wing sticking out all the time would ruin the sleek curves of the car, so it conveniently deploys automatically at 75 mph. On eBay, you can find a large inventory of these cars, along with their hard-to-find parts.
