I own a 1998 996. it has 130'000 miles and I've owned it for 3 months. In that time I have completed 8000 miles and the car has returned approx 24 mpg oink town and 33 on the motorway. I have had to replace a radiator, water pump and suspension arm but she is an old girl. She still hits 0-60 in 5. Power delivery is still seamless and strong. The interiors worn well and in black is still relatively modern by today's standards. For the money (£8000) there's nothing that will beat the 996 for powered, emotion and wow factor.

My 99 996 is incredibly fast, I previously owned a new 2005 350z and the porsche is faster and way more fun to drive.

0-200 is MUCH faster once the car is broken in (say 20,000 km)... 16 seconds flat

I own a 2000 996. After 6 years driving the car (inc. 3500+ track miles) it remains all the car I want. 80k miles on the odo, car drives like new. It is a beast, you can be king of the road in this car if you learn to master the tail.

the track was getting faster over the years ... new tarmac etc... unfortunatily quattroroute did not claim weather conditions in their loder tests..so sometimes they recive strange looking results..

Own a c2 996 2003, had a 2004 z4 3.0i there is absolutely NO WAY the porsche is slower then the bmw. No way, it is true the car is a beast.

Acceleration times seem too optimistic?

Did this one actually beat the new 997 or was it a cruddy driver dring the 997
