Description

Porsche 911 Carrera – 2002 

In 1998, the Porsche 911 Carrera 2 (996 generation) won Evo magazine’s prestigious and (still) influential Car the Year award. They also said, “you would have to be perverse to declare that the old (993) car was better.’’ So with 964 and 993 values very much in the £50k+ bracket, the 996 represents an affordable alternative that has massive upside potential if you look after it, enjoy it and maintain it.

According to how many left, there are only 9,131 996 911 Carrera 2s left in the UK. Of those, very few were specified with a manual gearbox; so we can confidently say that there are not many Porsche 911 manual transmission for sale. The Porsche 996 Carrera is also a fairly light car (especially by today’s standards) weighing in at 1320kg and making it lighter than a 996 GT3 and the outgoing 993 C2.

Interest in used Porsche 996 variants is growing, with millennials and Gen z enthusiasts looking for a fun and investible cool modern classic sports car.
