  1. I think the 996 is one of the best porsches, and Lingenfelter engineering even worked on one, so i hope that one or more gets put on this website. C ya later.

    I'm pretty sure that the 996 is just another name for the 911. Go to a search engine like yahoo and searh for "996 turbo" and you will see that websites come up referring to the car as the 911/996. I'm not sure why it has two names.

    I think that 911 and 996 are the same but 996 just refers to the newer models.

    I believe you're right!

    911 still is easier to speak, and so that is still what i call it. I get confused when people say the 996 or the 328 etc. It's too confusing for my simple mind.

    996 just refers to body type. The last generation of porsche 911s were 993s.

    So was I right?

    ahhhh, i see. but just say the model year then. that way it's like killing two birds with one stone. and i think CGTRacer was right.

    The 993 911 was the one with the circular kinda lights and the 996 911 is the one with the cool looking lights like the present day one.

    i hated those circle light ones, the new lights are significantly improved. the GT2 lights are sweet.
     
  15. Re: I hope a 996 gets put on this website sometime.

    yeah me too. I do however like the 917's lights. They look cool.

    Why do you guys give yourself Porsche name's when you know sh!t about these cars!!!! Someone even wrote that the 996 was aircooled!!!!!!!!!!!!! the newest model 911 is called 996 by Porsche intern, the model before the latest was called 993. That was the one with the round and slightly angeled(?)headlight and also the last porsche 911 with an aircooled engine!!!!
     
  18. Re: I hope a 996 gets put on this website sometime.

    The 993 has circular headlights,but they are angeled more than of a 930 and is air cooled. The 996 comes in to versions: the 3,4 liter lquid cooled with the boxster type of headlights and the newest has a 3,6 liter liquidcooled engine with the turbo (and gt2)-style headlights .
