The Affordable 996 Thread

I hear everyone saying they want one.

I will start:

Appears to need nothing....

1999 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe - Guards Red - OEM Upgrades / IMS Retrofit - CT

Appears to need a few things....(no mention of IMS upgrade)

1999 Porsche C2 - 120,000 Miles - $14,500 OBO (FOR SALE)

This thread will be very bad for my wallet I fear.... Can we add the 986 to mix as well?

I'm right there with you Sid. I think I am going to wait till I start seeing them for sub 10k, and from the looks of it, we are heading that direction
Would also love to grab one up for 5 k with an intermix problem . or something of the sorts. I've been dying to tear into one of these.

A 993, or 997 thread would be worse.

Start posting...

The 996 is a fanatasic car at a very affordable price. That red one sounds like a deal.

Bought my 50K mile 99 earlier this year, did he IMS and clutch and it's a great daily.

I propose that a 2003 986 S 3.2L for ~$15K is a better car than an older 1999-2000 996 3.4L for $18-20K.

As example, I just pulled this as the first one I saw off my local craigslist. No affiliation of course.

2002 Porsche Boxster S

That is SO MUCH GODDAMN CAR for the money.

Think Mazda 3's go for that damn price.

Scam or no scam, it's not a reasonable request. You pay for the car, you get the car then and there. It's not a condition I could live with, certainly not on an internet based purchase.

Isn't the IMS a much bigger deal in a 986?

This should be named "The Affordable M96 Thread".

They are typically low entry cost with the potential maintenance costs of $1,000 - $30,000

I don't know how it could be... the 3.2L S and the 3.4L 911 motor are nearly identical. The IMS is the same.

I think an engine drop in Boxster is harder, that's all. I could be wrong.
