Porsche 996 spare parts
The Porsche 996 was produced from 1997 to 2006 and was the first model of the 911 series with a water-cooled engine. Just like its predecessor, the Porsche 993, the car was designed by Harm Lagaay. However, they differ fundamentally in body shape and interior.
Motor and prices
With regard to compliance with fuel consumption and emission regulations in combination with targeted engine performance, Porsche switched to a six-cylinder boxer engine with water cooling. The engine block is considerably more complicated than the air-cooled engines. Consisting of four parts, the four camshafts are driven together by five chains. At the time of its introduction to the market, the engine of the 996 had a displacement of 3.4 liters and produced a power output of 300 HP. From the 2002 model year, the facelift increased the capacity to 3.6 liters, resulting in a new output of 320 hp.
With the design, Porsche set itself apart from the classic shape of the Porsche 911. The altogether large sports car had headlights integrated into the fenders, which could also be used Fried eggs lights were designated. Because of the high similarity to the Boxster, the headlights were replaced by differently designed clear glass headlights in 2002. Also the continuous light band at the rear was removed, which was only reintroduced in the 4S model. Apart from that, the 996 models had a look that should underline the new driving concept.
The interior was also fundamentally reworked. Especially the newly positioned instruments, which from then on had the shape of a semicircle. Since it was difficult to read the speed, it was additionally displayed digitally in the tachometer. The interior design was adapted and thus appears more harmonious. Especially the extra equipment like leather, aluminium or carbon look caused a sensation. High comfort and suitability for everyday use were the focus of attention in the Porsche 996 thanks to technical features such as ESP, built-in navigation system and automatic air conditioning. The price of the 993 is on the rise, which is why a purchase advice is currently being recommended.
The successor model of the 996 was the Porsche 997.
