Hello All,

I have been seriously looking at buying a 996 and selling my '98 Boxster. I've also been looking at a few well-kept 993's. Is there anything I should be looking for in the 996's with regards to known issues etc?

Thanks in advance!

Steve,

Check the Porsche Web page for Porsche Certified Cars nationwide or in your area. It's a 6 year 100Kmile warranty.

I just purchased an '02 Carrera with 6kmiles in almost perfect condition.

'02 or newer have most hp and a bit stiffer body.

Thanks Joee! I didn't realise the bodies were stiffer. That's great. I was hoping that the introduction of the 997's might push the prices of the 996's down, but that hasn't seemed to happen yet. I'd must prefer a 996 over a 997 anyway - I don't know why, but I'm just not into the 997's :)

Steve, I recently traded my Boxster for a 997 but was considering a 996 cab. According to two dealers they were trying to push their 996's out the door. As a reality check, he cab was offered to me for their invoice without even a start at negotiation.

Good luck,

Bernie
