The 996 model year was the most drastic update since the original 911. The all-new chassis platform and new water-cooled engine marked a complete breakaway from the original stalwarts of the 911 line. The changes weren’t just under the hood, Porsche wanted a 911 for the new millennium so design chief Harm Lagaay and his team completely re-designed the bodywork and interior. The 996 featured a much sleeker body style, a more raked windshield, completely updated interior, and generation-defining “fried egg” shaped headlamps that harked back to the legendary 1997 991 GT1 race car. The 996 was made for the ultimate cruising refinement, tombstone seats provided long distance comfort yet hard cornering support for peak enjoyment during everyday use. However, comfort doesn’t mean the 996 is track shy thanks to a 50 kg weight loss. On top of that, the 996 had a 45% stiffer high-strength steel chassis and a lower drag coefficient than its predecessor thanks to hours spent in the wind tunnel. Planted up front with a traction optimised rear, the 996 shone when thrown into corners. The balance between comfort and drivability meant Porsche had succeeded in designing a 911 fit for a new era. 

Porsche used the 996 platform as a base for two lightweight GTs, the GT2 and the GT3. The GT3 saw a standard Carrera 4 shed equipment in the name of weight loss along with stiffened, adjustable suspension and better brakes. The lighter, stiffer, all wheel drive GT3 was the ultimate track-focused 996.
