      Honestly, that the red stripe, and the 3/4 view keep me coming back! I think it's become a timeless design, at least as far as 996 cars go.

      Agreed, half want to do it to the turbo.

      Took the turbo out for a 100 mile drive into VT tonight, have to investigate but hear a clunk from on/off throttle. Guessing might be coming from the solid mounts working themselves loose.

      I still remember seeing my first one on the road from the rear in LA in '03. Such a good looking car.

      I don't know for sure what my favorite attainable (<$ than a Turbo or GT_) 996 is, but C4S, 40th AE, and 996 Targa are up there in the top 3.

      can the red center light portion be added to a regular 996? It ties the lights together well... just curious.

      The 4S decklid is stepped where the red tail section is mounted IIRC.

      necro bump - time for a TCL 996 member refresher.

      after selling my 99 cab 3 years ago I've been waiting to get back into another 996. Here it is

      Speed Yellow
      Aero
      LSD
      Hardbacks
      Litronics

      Untitled by GhstRidr, on Flickr

      Plans are to just keep driving this thing (it's got a 130k miles on it)

      So who's still got one?

      Congratulations<img src="https://www.vwvortex.com/Anthony/Smilies/thumbup.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb Up" class="inlineimg" /> Stupid filter at work blocks pics, so I can't see it, but I love Speed Yellow 996's.

      Still have mine too, and I seem to love it more as time goes on. I think that's a common experience with 911's.

      beauty - I enjoyed my time with a cab. The OEM hard tops are great. Couldn't ever get the car to stop squeaking though, just too flexi

      996cones by GhstRidr, on Flickr

      get out and cones whenever possible

      super wet day at the track, but the car hooked up nicely. My first time pushing it since it's acquisition.

      I just wish this car had PSE like my last one. The stock exhaust is pretty tame. I have my eyes peeled for a set of stock cans I can "fister/gundo"

      Normally I'd go for high mileage and be wary of one with such little road time, but that's because stuff normally gets neglected on cars that sit. That one looks well cared-for and should make someone very happy for a good price. I'll be curious to see where the bids end up.

      OT, but an interesting choice to name a company after a word picked from the 3rd Reich terminology.

      I suppose in 2019, when people are offended by quite literally everything, you have a point.
