Porsche 991 Turbocharged Carrera or 996 Turbo?

We can’t stop wondering where the progress has brought us, talking about the automotive world, have you at least made a comparison between BMW M3 and the E30 version? All those exotic cars from like 10 years ago, could easily get blown into the weeds if they could meet up a modern BMW hatchback. In order to show you that we’ve decided to make some comparison between these two models, Porsche 991.2 911 Carrera S and 966 911 Turbo.

By looking at its interior and design, you don’t really find so many differences that could make one of them better. Of course there are some minor key differences, and some details like the 996’s “fried egg” headlights, even so the 991 looks a bit more muscular, with those bulging arches and gob-full-of-grilles look, and of course the GT3 wheels on the 996. The older model feels a bit cheaper than the new one, even with the low miles on the clock, the interior feels a bit worn. The leather trim on the dashboard, leaves a weird bobbly effect. Of course, the quality seems worse, but the 3.6-litre twin-turbo flat-six is good enough to make you forget about that. The 991 model is very quick, while the 996 version after you press the pedal right to the floor in second gear, will make you feel like nothing is happening. But wait a second, and at 4000rpm, you’ll get pinned back by the turbo and will go faster than ever. This power still isn’t enough to overwhelm the four-wheel drive system.
