Check out this awesome expert review of the 996 911 by Larry Webster for Car and Driver: 

Porsche in 1997 discarded wheel studs and lug nuts and opted for bolts to secure wheels to hubs. Pressing the studs into the axle stubs deformed the hub face enough to induce brake shudder in a few cars. But installing wheels with bolts is a tough process because you have to hold the wheel in position to line up the holes. To make wheel mounting easier, all Porsches now come with a long rod that you secure to the hub first and hang the tire on it so it's easier to insert the bolts. 

Here's another: Those cross-drilled rotors look way cool, and the holes reduce brake fade by keeping the rotors up to 30 degrees cooler. 

Unless you're of the pocket-protector brethren, we apologize for the above mind-numbing details. We do have a point, though: Those guys at the Weissach engineering shop don't simply sweat the details, they flood 'em. For this midyear model change, they also pounced on the 996 version of the 911 and gave it a thorough makeover. 

Let's start with the engine. It's still a flat-six, but now, thanks to numerous additions, it pumps out 320 horsepower at 6800 rpm - 20 more horses than the 2001 car. Eighty percent of the engine internals were changed to find the new power, and the flat-six retains LEV status and current fuel economy. 

A stroke 4.8mm longer means new connecting rods and crankshaft, which now pull the pistons an additional 0.19 inch farther down the cylinder. Engine displacement is up 209 cubic centimeters to 3596 (3.6 liters). 

Also new is a fuel-supply system with no return line, which keeps the fuel cooler. There's also a new exhaust system with reduced back pressure and a throatier low-rpm burble that anyone with a trace of 93 octane in his or her veins will find luscious. 

Complementing the deeper-breathing motor is the latest version of VarioCam Plus. It combines the two-stage cam-lobe switching system first seen on the 2001 911 Turbo with the variable cam-phasing system used on the previous 911. This latest 911 cam varies the intake-cam timing continuously over a 40-degree range. VarioCam Plus allows the engine to operate with optimal cam timing and lift over a broader rev range. It provides both low-end torque and high-rpm power. Porsche says, in fact, that although peak torque is up 15 pound-feet to 273 at 4250 rpm, there's more torque across the band, thanks also to the greater displacement. 

There's enough low-end grunt that we rarely felt the need to downshift the beefed-up six-speed manual transmission. For shiftless folks, Porsche borrowed the stronger five-speed automatic transmission from the 911 Turbo to handle the extra power. The four-wheel-drive system of the Carrera 4 is unchanged. 

We won't be surprised if the more powerful 911 Carrera coupe sprints to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds — 0.2 second quicker than the current one. Porsche figures the new car will reach 177 mph, a figure we have not verified, but it sounds reasonable. 

Porsche says we'll be more comfortable pushing the car to top speed because new front bodywork reduces front lift by 25 percent and a new rear bumper reduces lift by 40 percent for increased high-speed stability. If you've ever seen Mercedes-Benz Le Mans racers doing back flips at the Circuit de la Sarthe, you know less lift is a good thing. Both coupe and convertible models also benefit from reinforcing of the side sills, roof frame, and floorpan. Torsional rigidity is thus up by 25 percent for the coupe and 10 percent for the convertible. 

It's cool that the new bodywork is in fact functional, but the broad horizontal front slots and new headlights with 911 Turbo styling make the 911 look better, too. We've always thought the 911 looks too much like the Boxster, and here's a small step in the right direction. New standard 17-inch wheels with 10-spoke units save a total of eight pounds over last year's wheels. The optional five-spoke, 18-inch wheels are an inch wider than before, yet save a total of 23 pounds over last year's 18-inchers. Although spring rates stay the same, the shocks have been tuned to complement the stiffer structure. 

Inside, however, you'll still be hard pressed to differentiate a Boxster from a 911. Porsche did see fit to add a passenger-side glove box and — brace yourself — cup holders. Unfortunately, they hold only a 12-ounce can, which then blocks a significant portion of the dash. Don't fret about Porsche's going too mainstream; the Le Mans-inspired left-side ignition switch is still there. 

Do the addition of cup holders and the upcoming introduction of a Porsche sport-utility vehicle mean the legendary company's gone soft? Judging by our brief drive in the new 911, we can answer with an emphatic, "Not a chance." 

The 911 is still an impressively flexible car with useful cargo room and legs long enough to turn any mundane trip into an F1 qualifying run. The updated engine nearly matches the charismatic burble of the old air-cooled motors but has gobs more low-end grunt and stronger high-rpm power. 


To those concerned about the "Intermediate Shaft" (IMS) Bearing rumors regarding these cars: Please understand that this problem only occurs on about five percent of Porsche models produced around this time, it's not half, or even a quarter. It's a rare issue, and generally pops up on abused vehicles. It's understandable that this may not comfort you to know IF you're among that 5% that it affects, but please understand, the IMS is FIXABLE. If you're paranoid or cautious, just budget about $2,000 and get it replaced. For two grand you'll have the all the peace of mind in the world, and never have to worry about IMS again.
