Because I can put lots of money into “improving’ a car so much so that I could’ve bought a GT3.

True that. However, the GT3 guys I know still find ways to pour unending amounts of cash into their cars, too! :D

Probably my most twisted reason for loving the 996 is because most of the Porsche community looks past the 996 as an actual 911,and that means people aren't afraid to ruin their 996's, which in turn makes it easier for me to afford the price of entry. Plus people are less likely to fix stupid shit that breaks, because they know it's not gonna be worth much when they sell them anyway. So now I get to fix all the stupid shit I find broken or wrong with the car, and that's something I just cant do without, because I have problems leaving well enough alone with any car I own, and fixing stupid broken shit is an absolute requirement for a car to be considered for ownership by me........ Wait........ I think I'm mentally ill or something.......:shock:

2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

See pictures. not great ... quick and dirty iPhone photo while pumping my required Top Tier 93 octane gasoline which we all know is the only thing these car can burn. lol :lol:

Hey... just send me a PM with your price (with pictures) for the set and if someone asks for some at our local cars and coffee, I'll send them your way.

I'd buy them, but if I buy another set of wheels, my wife will bury me with them. I'd need to sell the Vossens first.

Cheers!

Notwithstanding that the '99 996 I got had most all of the features that I wanted, I bought a 996 because everyone else looked down their noses at them. 8-)

Yes, we're different. We don't look same as the others. We don't perform like the others. But our failures are unique, our past is behind us, and our future is laid before; therefore, let's stick together brothas. Life is too short to complain about how we were born. We're NOT victims! Suck it up. They think we're a bunch of losers with sissy mentalities. They say the only way we'd win a race, is if we were the only ones on the track and even then we'd have to be towed past the finish line! The side of the road is where THEY say we belong. Is that true? Are going to get kicked to the curb? NOOO! Are we going to let them burn rubber in our faces? NO! Are we going to let them rev up there non-IMS cars in our ears? NOoooOOOOooooOO!!! Are we going let them point their perfectly round headlights in our eyes? NOOOOOO!!!! Ok then... Get out there in the battle and show'm who is boss! VICTORY is our battle cry!
