911 ownership has never been easier.
If you’re a total car geek like us then you’ve probably found yourself scrolling through eBay Motors just for the heck of it. During one of our recent searches we noticed something: 996 Porsche 911s are being sold for than $15,000. Launched in 1998, the 996 was ground breaking for many reasons, among them an all-new platform, and interior and exterior designs. That air-cooled flat-six was replaced with a new water-cooled unit. 911 purists weren’t happy. But the 996 is still a great sports car and could be one of best deals out there. Here are just four examples.
This 1999 Carrera 2 has only 59,000 miles, a 3.4-liter flat-six paired to a six-speed manual, and over $800 worth of new tires. Judging by the ad, it appears to be in great condition overall. Not bad at all for just $13,600.
Perhaps a 911 Targa is more to your liking - and these have those large glass retractable roofs. This 2004 3.6-liter model has only 43,000 miles on the clock. There’s a slight bidding war for it at the moment, but the highest bid, as of this writing, is just over $20k.
Want to drive your 911 year-round in most weather conditions? You’ll need all-wheel-drive for that. We found this 2001 Carrera 4 Cabrio for only $19,500.
Just want a decent RWD 911 Cabrio? We can’t find a thing wrong with this ’01 model. It even has a six-speed manual instead of that crappy five-speed Tiptronic gearbox that nobody liked.
