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.

Well, that's all about I can think about now, all replies (accept crap replies) are appreciated!
