The cheapest 996 in the country

Recommended Posts

I know this is cliche title, but I did in fact buy the cheapest Porsche 911, C2, manual, coupe in the country that was currently available.

I think many would like to do the same thing, they look like a good allrounder, nice addition! 👍

Thanks mate. I am really loving it so far, besides trying to track down all of the squeaks and rattles in the interior, but I will sort that out ;)

Great intro to the world of the 996 Jeff.

Look forward to see what you end up doing to it.

 @Damien B Here I am trying to forget about the thought of selling my oil dripper to buy a 996, and here you are posting that video I've watched 147 times! 🙄

 Great vid though. Shame it's not longer

Great stuff Jeff. Love the 996, as do many others. Here's an old fave of mine for some post-purchase affirmation (PPA?) and maybe a little inspo (not that you need it)

 

I love that video and it was well worth watching again ;)

I think the car looks great, perfect daily.  You’re right on that grey interior though.  The designers really phoned that one in.  All those ovals and circles and plastic.  I suppose in time we will find it retro and cool.

@LeeM, do you STILL not have a 996? Come over to the dark side...mmmm love it, you will!

 Yeah thanks Yoda! 🙄 😉

 They're fantastic cars, and I was very tempted a few weeks ago with something, yet after MUCH deliberation (usually head banging against a wall) and weighing up a few things, I'll be sticking with my old thing for the foreseeable future.

...until I change my mind again ofcourse 🙄

The worst part so far is the squeaks and rattles in the interior on the freeway. I have a can of silicon spray in the passenger seat and I am spraying in every crevice to try and silence them, but there is still one main one which seems to be from under the gauge pod area, which is still driving me crazy ;)

At the moment as I am using it as a daily driver, my commute on the freeway for 40 mins each way, the dash rattles the whole time. I am stubborn enough that I am GOING to find it and KILL it!!! 👿

Mine is just this irritating squeak that happens on occasion on bad roads ,,,if it was any other brand of car I wouldn,t care less ,,,I am certain it is just my OCD and others would not care one bit

I have  a replacement dash to go in mine,and I have been holding off because I have no squeaks or rattles, and I am afraid when the new one goes in I may get some!!

Or that is my excuse anyway - maybe I am just slack 🙂
