9reen 9ggs and 6am: 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

Each time I find another cheap 996 generation Porsche 911, I wonder; how much longer can the 996 be the redheaded (orange headed? orange eyed?) stepchild of the classic 911 lineup. It wasn’t a bad car when it was released — it was faster and more capable and sold way better than the outgoing 993, which has now been elevated to deity status in the pantheon of Porsche. So what gives? Are the fried egg headlights really that bad? Is the IMS a death sentence…it seems to have been fixed on this one. Or are these currently a good buy? Find this 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera offered for $16,950 in Thousand Oaks, CA via craigslist.
