I agree. My 996C4s is a better drive than my old 964. Aircooled will always sound a bit better to me and have an awesome instant bite when accelerating, but I definitely prefer the 996 having driven it everyday over the last 15 months (12,000 miles)

Absolutely no chance of me wanting to change it for another 911 in the near future. My plan has always been to upgrade every two or so years and work my way through all the 911’s.. But the thought of selling this next August, too soon. Love it! Smile

Funnily enough I did exactly that in 2006, from a 993 Targa to a 996 4S. A spectacularly rubbish decision financially! Interestingly though, the 4S is the only model of car I've ever sold, then missed enough to buy another one a few yrs later.

These are really interesting comments & back-up my decision to stick with ownership.

Reference the OP's thread - love this concept which Porsche came up with for the 70th Anniversary Editions & also agree with others in that the vehicles on offer did not seem to be excessively priced given their proposition.

2004 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

My mate bought a car that was a transaxle resto from a main dealer, decent job but no way 100% loads of still available bits missing and other incorrectly fitted parts.
It will be 100 % when done though.
