I agree with this ^^ 100% First year C2 is what I would be buying if I wanted to get into a 996 Carrera... I really dig the look, as James says, very rudimentary. 

 

Thanks guys the input helped make some decisions. At this stage passing on both options he looked at and I’m in the market for a gen 1 996 manual at the right price 😂

Best trick in world Kurt, and you were predictable in which way you would steer me...😂

The friend and question was legit. I find it difficult sometimes to take personal bias out when helping this this guy with car purchases. Some are easy this was harder as I know what I would buy, so always good to get other opinions. Good thing is I got him to also call AH who had done the IMS on one of them and Anthony also set him straight on what he should be looking for. Pretty much in the same direction that everyone here suggested around reflection on what history had shown us with G body/964/993 targa/coupe manual/auto and early gen 1 models had retained or improved value over time.

I know I've mentioned it a few times, but finally made my mind up to flick the Macan (as much as I love it) when I get back home and chase down an early 996.  Life has finally settled down a bit so I can put some energy in to a car search for myself. May not be gen 1 but will be something to enjoy on SMT's.

Good to hear it...when it came to consider what we'd move on to thin out the herd, I thought about getting rid of our Macan, but its too good for everything we need it for, so it will stay with us, probably for a very long time. If you don't need the practicality of it anymore.. then definitely move it on before the face lift comes out in numbers (any minute soon) :lol:

I'd hold out for a first year car, I really would... the silver one at Richmonds appears to be very nice, albeit it seems a little high on the ask, which is pushing the envelope of what people will pay for an early car in the current climate, but as you know, in the long run, it is well worth paying a bit extra for a complete and correct example... look forward to some sunny side up fried egg action at the future SMT's :D

Not usually a cab fan but this looks pretty cool I reckon...and good value if it checks out. Red interior with silver, 99 so might be cable throttle, appears to be lowered, 'quick shifter', sports exhaust...ticking a lot of boxes for me. Hmmm, do I need a cab as well as a coupe...

Maybe he was trying to accentuate the dog dick red interior... now where have I seen that colour scheme before 😏😂:ph34r:

Thanks Dan, i hadn't had a good look.

No worries! Think the owners been trying to sell it on and off for some time now. 

The price with the WOVR is keeping it unsold

I've got a 04 - C2 and love it. It was either that or an early one as mentioned above.

If I'd come across one of these I'd have been all over it....

Mad colour and all the right tweaks....This video has done the rounds already but would convince most people..

 

 

 

That's my doppelgänger - bought 2.5 years ago when they were still hated...So much love now, and with the sports exhaust and slight lowering, the visual and sound is awesome. Definitely can recommend

The 996 with BBS wheels for $49k for sale in Vic looks good... Surprised it is still available.

I understand it is under offer, pending PPI. Spoke with the owner last week.

Apologies if this one has been asked about before, as it’s been on the market a while now, but anyone have any intel on this car or the dealer sitting on it? Or looked at it?

After @LeeM‘s stunning backflip (!) on using a Tip, Im now finding myself including autos in the search function, and keep coming back to this gorgeous green number for possible daily driver duties.

Notice tonight the price has gone up 10k! So it doesn't sell at 70k so lets put it up to 80k. Don't understand this sales tactic

Are my eyes playing tricks or does the Carrera badge look crooked 🤔

 Is that the one from the older gent in Perth for bugger all money? I started liking 996's after watching Jethro's video, especially this colour too

This car looks very tidy and a reasonable price, @Tips

I am wondering why it hasn't been sold yet.

I swear that one was in the 40's last year
