The only time I drive the 996 is to diagnose a problem when I have to work on it. It feels “ clumsy” compared to the earlier cars. I consider the car a time bomb. When a major engine problem arises, we will junk it out.
Interesting. I never touched a 993, but several 996 reviews I read said that it drove night-and-day better than the 993, cheap materials notwithstanding.
