The Porsche 997 took over from the 996 as the latest 911. It did seem to take a slight step back looks wise and have a look of the earlier 911’s we all love. The 354bhp water cooled engine was the most refined yet and this combined with the new 6 speed PDK gearbox it really made for something special.
You could also get an “S” version of the Porsche 997 which gave you more flared wings and a more aggressive stance on the road. The horse power was also raised slightly to 385bhp making it a true sports car
