Not sure why you think that the numbers are BS the 0-60mph / 0-100kph is spot on. The top speed is actually higher on road tests than this states and the official figures. In 2001 they changed the engine to a 3.6 up from the 3.4 and added a few extra Hp.

4.7 second to 100kph is good but it’s not that impressive.

The only checked acceleration time of the 991 slower than this - 0-200 17.1, and that's too slow, cause tested by AMS, and you know them. It's more about the 997. But whether you compare '01 Carrera-vs-'11 Carrera, 991 beats 996 in 4 seconds on the Hockenheim (I don't even try to imagine the difference at the Nordschleife).

But yes, you're right about the benefit of buying a 996 now. I'd buy the 2001 model.

Wasn't 2001 the first year Porsche started putting cupholders in their cars?

The most under-rated 911 of all time? Unloved and cheap right now, but contemporary road tests had it accelerating quicker than the current 991 base model.
