This might be one of the hotter 996s we can recall ever seeing

Then again, we typically don’t keep an eye out for these, so it’s conceivable that we might have previously overlooked some nice examples. 996s are generally unloved, and sadly, we’re no exception.

If we were looking strictly for performance value on the dollar, the 996 range would no doubt be the place to look. However, being the sort to approach cars not just rationally but also very much emotionally (which we think puts us in the same boat as most enthusiasts), we’ll probably end up overpaying for a 964 or 993, cars whose values have been inflated by collectors as well as low production numbers.

But we suspect the personal satisfaction will be worth it.
