The Last Of Its Kind: It was developed during a time when the driving experience wasn’t overshadowed by a suite of electronic enhancements and features minimal driving aids; it encases the coveted Mezger engine, developed by the late Hans Mezger, that derived from the legendary 911 GT1 race-car and offers rampant, race-track performance that’s optimized for everyday usability; In coupe and manual formation, the 996 Turbo is the lightest of the new-age Turbos, and is also more analog and compact, as opposed to its Turbo successors; it’s modern with gran-touring-like comfort, but yet has a traditional mechanical feel that’s not readily available in cars today and has a lovely “just-rightness”!
