Top Gear testing Porsche 911 996
After 34 years in production the famous air-cooled 911 was replaced by an
all-new water-cooled model. Known as the Type 996, this car was a major
leap for Porsche, although many of the traits that defined the 911 during
past decades still remained. With the new model there was finally a newly
designed bodyshell (all previous 911s being based on the original 1963
shell). As with the 993 before it the 996 was also a significant model, but
mainly for the way it was conceived and designed, and the effect it had on
Porsche during the 1990s.
Pundits criticized the 996's styling a great deal, largely because it
shared its headlamps— indeed much of its front end, mechanically— with
the less expensive Boxster. The 996 had been on the drawing board first and
was a more advanced car in some respects, but the cost-cutting seemed
inappropriate for an expensive car. Otherwise, the Pinky Lai-penned shape
followed the original Butzi Porsche design very closely; the Carrera model
had a 0.30 Coefficient of drag. The interior was further criticized for its
plainness and its lack of relationship to prior 911 interiors, although
this came largely from owners of older 911s.
The Type 996 spawned over a dozen variations, including all wheel drive
Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S (which had a 'turbo look') models, the club racing-oriented GT3,
and the forced-induction 996 turbo and
GT2. The turbo, four-wheel-drive and
twin-turbo, often made appearances in
magazines' lists of the best cars on sale.
996 GT3 RSThe Carrera and Carrera 4 underwent revisions for model year
2002, receiving the front headlight/indicator lights which were first seen
on the turbo version two years earlier.
This allowed the 911 to be more distinguishable from the Boxster. A mildly
revised front fascia was also introduced, though the basic architecture

I have recorded an astonishing Porsche 996 GT2 tuned by Edo Competition. I
have filmed this Porsche previously on other events, now you can see some
amazing fly by shots on a closed circuit somewhere in The Netherlands. A
standard GT2 has 462bhp and 0-60mph (0-100 km/h) goes in 4.1 seconds. This
GT2 has an amazing 550bhp and 0-60mph (0-100 km/h) goes in 3.8 seconds and
it has an topspeed of 211 mph (340km/h!).

How to Restore a Black 996 Porsche Track Car
This is a buddies car that I needed to restore after many years of track
days and little to no detailing/cleaning. In this longer video, I discuss
the different steps and products used to restore the paint to near
perfection. I also introduce a few new products for "claying" your paint,
and show the differences between a rotary polisher and DA polisher. (It is
a bit on the long side, but its important to understand the thought process
behind paint correction prior to working on a difficult job such as a
Porsche 996 in black.) Hope this is helpful. Send me emails if you have
additional questions. Thanks guys. -L
