The 996 Porsche, the “different” 911
Many people dislike the design of the 996 generation Porsche because of its “egg-shaped” headlights, but personally I believe this generation is one of the best looking, and I say this because it’s different than the other 911 generations. The 996 generation was the only generation with the odd headlight shape which sets it apart from the other generations. Also the 996 was the first Porsche with a water-cooled engine, which set a new standard for all newer model Porsche’s. Therefore, I believe the 996 is one of the best generations of the Porsche 911, not just because of it’s great performance, reliability, and comfort, but because it was the “different” 911 and it set a new standard for all new Porsche’s.
