993TT vs 996TT

I've always wanted a turbo and am considering a purchase within the next 6-9 mos. I have noticed 993 TT's and 2001 996 TT's are about the same price point. Are there known problems with the early 996 TT. Are the later 2002 and on TT's much better? Style issues are always a matter of taste but mechanically which do you guys think is more reliable? It would be driven about 5 mos a year, 4-6K mi per year, no track, dealer serviced, left mostly stock. I am leaning toward the 996 TT but like I said I am not that knowledgeable and I know the 996 is an early example of a new platform whereas the 993 is the last derivation of an old platform. Anyways, I would appreciate you guys' input. Thanks
