You really can afford a Porsche 911

You’re not wealthy, but you still want to own a 911. To many, the idea of owning a Porsche 911, is a dream. While many 911’s both new and old have risen to stratospheric values, we’re here to tell you that there is still hope. That hope comes by way of the 1999-2005 Porsche 911, also known as the 996. The 3.4/3.6 Liter, ~300/315 hp, water-cooled, flat-six is every bit as 911 as any of its predecessors. Don’t be influenced by its small group of vocal critics.

We put together “First Flat-Six” to highlight and bring the best examples of the 996 Porsche 911 on the market to you, the enthusiast. We find the best examples and feature why we think the car is worth serious consideration as your “first flat-six” Porsche 911.

We’re looking for you to comment about what you like (or dislike) about each car directly. Feel free to share your thoughts! And feel free to email us with any comments or suggestions for our site at mail@firstflatsix.com.
