The Porsche 911 Turbo (996) is an amazing bargain. Today I'm reviewing the 996 Turbo, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of one of the best bargain 911 models. Then I'm going to drive the 996 Turbo and show you what it's like on the road with a great car.

Love the look. Headlights included. The design is simplistic, and minimalistic. Stunning, and mechanically bullet proof, from a safety and reliability perspective.

LOVE our 2003 911 Carrera S4 - exactly same wide body / brakes / suspension as the same year Turbo. Head lights are gorgeous on this low mile PORSCHE Red / Black - BTW, what car exists today with the same round headlights from the 50's - 60's anyhow? NONE. Has anybody noticed those GAY LOOKING Christmas sparkly lights they've put on everything lately that look like total Crap! PORSCHE 911's are a Total Babe MAGNET and faster then 99% of you salivators will ever drive. Get U ONE!

Ugly exterior and interior. And no, Doug, it was no improvement on the 993. The 993 looks minimalistically classic. The 996 looks like a plastic explosion. But - It’s still a super good bargain, and I’d love to own one.

Its not really the headlights I dislike. Its the slab sided design. Coming after the curvy and sexy 993 makes it look even worse too. Its like finding out your flat chested girlfriend's mom has double D's.

996 4S has a 3.6 engine like the turbo and therefore not the mentioned problem. Only regular Carreras with the 3.4 engine have it

Just picked one up with the X-50 Aero. Once you drive it, you forget the lights ever existed. Now, when I see a 997 from the front I immediately think: VW Bug; or, Ford Model T. Wouldn't trade mine for anything.

"great bargains" "Cheap" Welcome to Australia, where car prices are fucking stupid. 40k for a 996 Carrera 120k for a 996 turbo.

I always disliked the interior and headlights but the rest of the car is very good looking I skipped this one going from 993TT to 997TT which I still have and will keep but t the 996TT now is the most affordable Mezger Turbo and the best bang for the buck you can find any brand any model period
I like these headlights better than circle ones, definitely makes it different and stand out

I still have my 2002 996 turbo that I bought new. Even though it doesn't have the IMS bearing issue, it does have a problem with the glue on the coolant tubes failing. Mine failed 3 years ago and had to get them all pinned, cost about the same as the IMS fix on the non-turbo cars.

Well don’t forget about engine piston bore scoring. 99-2005 bad engines with bore scoring, can't be fixed unless you rebuild the engine. (the Turbos and GT's are exempt?

Great video Doug. Having owned a 996C2 and now a 996 Turbo the main different is the engine and suspension setup, it's another level in the turbo.

i remember when I was a kid I liked the headlights on this one. It looked more modern and aggressive. I was disappointed when they went back to more conservative styling with the 997. And now I still don’t mind the headlights. It’s not a big deal. They look just as good as the classics. And I agree the rest of the car looks awesome. A simple case where people are too close minded and whiny.

Doug, you're wrong about this car's interior - it sucks. The Type 993, 997 and 991 ALL have the "classic" long dashboard of the 70s and 80s cars. Only this one strayed with its "bulbous" dashboard styling. Overall, while still an iconic Porsche, the 996 just isn't as appealing as the interiors/exteriors of the aforementioned cars. The new 992.2 has that classic interior design theme. Hopefully it stays that way for future 911 generations going forward for the sake of traditional styling.

The 993 interior with it's five round instruments i a classic timeless one, the 996 interior looks just what it is, dated. The 996 makes you look like the guy who could not afford a more expensive Porsche and that us probably the case.

I know I'm in the total minority here, but I actually like the look of the headlights; and not just because they're different from eeevveerrry other 911; I personally think the front end just looks more sophisticated with these lights. The plain, boring round ones might be the 'classic' look, but that doesn't mean that EVERY model 911 has to have them... What if that extended to other aspects, like say, steering wheel? Or the wheels themselves? Anyway, I like 'em, and I pointed out this situation (regarding the 996) to my brother, and two months later he got a 996 4S..! However, being in LA, he went to one a better one of the many specialty Porsche shops, who sprinkled magic voodoo dust on the engine, and now it ROARS! Well, the aftermarket exhaust contributes to that as well, but supposedly it has between 465 and 475 HP now, and having driven it, I'd believe that number no problem. With the custom wheels and new Pirellis, he's in for about $40k, and it's a car with $80k's worth of grins & giggles under the hood... Gotta love a 911, no matter what!

The major reason and more than the headlights, is the 996 was the first with an water-cooled engine. 993s are a premium as they are the last of the air-cooled motors. The 996 was also the first time the 911 became a lot larger

A Porsche 911 X50 aren't exactly cheap. I can only find one in my area for sale and it's 65k. Even at 45k its expensive. Car has way to much plastic and you can get better Porsche's for 45-65k.

Things Doug neglected to mention: - The REAL reason that most "purists" (yeah, a little eyeroll there) prefer the 993 has more to do with the fact that it's the last generation to be air cooled (vs water cooled). Those ugly headlights were just a nail in the coffin. - The butterfly knife in the glove box.

the "battery front trunk" icon on the lid of fuse box is to let owners know that they can connect a portable battery charger to that location and any metal part (door hinge) to unlatch front hood. This is for folks who have dead battery. Most folks don't know that..and therefore have a tough time jumping the car because of locked front hood.
