        Have you actually driven one ? Street or track ?

        Easiest way is buy a 996 GT3 and take it to track. Less headache and it really is fast.

          996 GT3 you are saying is going to cost the same?

          I must have really messed up on the priorities here......lol

            I'm guessing in the neighborhood or $55K to $60K. But it's not air cooled, all you purists!

              I have a track prepped 1997 993 c2 I'd be willing to sell for $37k. I will provide additional details if the price and year suit what you might be looking for. I'm on my mobile device, I'll able to send photos via email as well.

                    Other than the ugly teardrop headlights that afflict all 996 cars and 1st gen. Boxsters, I disagree with you. Certainly the best looking 996 of all.

                      996 GT3 has the right engine, that don't suffer those dumb IMS issues and so forth. car actually drives good.

                      I bought an 06 997......plan was to sell my S2000 to help fund it. drove 997 for a month, then took out my S2000 to get it washed so I can sell it. in less than 1 mile, I decided not to sell s2000, and will probably sell the 997.

                        it is going to cost you the same after you fix up the early aircool 911 due to maintenance and to make them track worthy....
                        ask Jack how much he spent on his 911..

                            I get what you are talking about. I have never owned a 911, but I have driven a few. I own an NSX. But the most fun car to drive that I have ever owned, and the one I wish I never sold, was the S2000.

                              328 Ferrari is in that age range and the 348 Ferrari too. P bugs always broke down on me. I got bad p bug mojo in my family. Between myself and dad had 6 all sucked. If you must go there hang on rennlist to understand what you want. There are proper things to buy to track them especially if you hang with poc or pca and run in a class.

                                I once saw a 996 that had body-color vinyl over the headlamps to make them look round, with another small round cutout for the turn signal. I don't know where it came from or how someone would do it, but it really made a big difference.

                                It looked like a 911 again and not like a Boxster, which used the same headlamp assembly in those years.
