Default Future 996 Turbo Buyer.

Hey guys,

I want to continue my family's tradition of owning at least one Porsche, and the car that I thought was the best value in terms of performance, quality, reliability (hopefully!), looks, and price was the 2000-05 996 Turbo. My father currently owns a 1965 356 C Coupe which is a beautiful car in every regard, (except for comfort, if you know what I mean) and I love vintage cars, (my dream car is a Mercedes-Benz 600, Oh god, I'm getting off topic) but it's kind of a PITA to own, like when you park somewhere and some grubby kid puts his hands all over the car (there I go again!) Anyway, I want to know pretty much everything about the average 996 Turbo ownership experience (the highs and lows, reliability, maintenance, things like that.) I will say now that I do like working on my little collection of cars (2004 Land Rover Discovery, 1988 BMW M5, 1999 Bentley Turbo RT) and I know all about high maintenance, astronomical prices for parts and things of that nature (this next sentence I'll try to stay on topic, such a bad habit of mine. About my future 996 Turbo, It'll just be another weekend toy, and like my other cars, I'll take great care of it.

All replies (except crap replies) are appreciated.
