IUI696the more I seem to see the 996 dislike / haters (not all but a majority).
IUI696It’s so wonderful to note the positive and really great response to my post, thank you. It’s great to hear the pleasure of ownership and it’s not just me that gets a bit frustrated at the negativity to the 996. I recently noted this online article regarding the 996. http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/buying-maintenance/a9982953/why-the-996-generation-porsche-911-will-never-be-collectible/ This bit of online journalism seems to be by someone who has never owned or driven a 996 (I may be wrong), but by someone who basis an opinion on collectability, rising values, 911 prospecting and rarity! Not driving pleasure or enjoyment, as noted by every single person who commented to my post. Before I bought my 996, I reviewed as much as I could. I felt the wind taken out my sails with these online articles, You Tube posts etc that I started to question if I should actually buy a 996. I used the negative as a positive to educate myself and went for it, glad I did as mentioned. On a final note: A nice article on this variant of the 996 – this 996 is one of the smallest series production batch Porsche ever made!! https://www.vierenzestig.nl/porsche-996-gt3-rs-road-challenge-registry/ Thanks SimonR1 - 2004 C2 996
