Any Cayenne owners also own a 996TT?

I have a '04 which makes me smile every time I get in it. I prefer it to the 997t, a bit more raw.

Wow. I didn't realize the 996tt was so inexpensive (relatively). I found 1 close by. Under 50k miles for about $40k. m gonna go check it out. I still remember getting a ride at an autocross lap 10 years ago and loved the way the front tires would claw for traction while drifting. Crazy stuff.

Great vehicle. Just watch out for
2nd gear pop out issues, and coolant hose failure. Cost me about 10k over three years of ownership . That amounts includes a clutch replacement . What is it with Porsche? can't make decent coolant pipes or hoses? We should probably all go back to air cooled!

... or go into business building coolant pipes & hoses.

Interesting though,.. the prices {for example comparing} 996 TT's, verses 996 GT2's.

I know this is not the 996 forum,... but the conversation seems to be going in this direction based on Corso asking in the first place.

Mecum Kissimmee Florida has a 2004 black widow maker that they are expecting to fetch $160k - $225k this coming weekend? Big difference eh?

I'd love to pick up a 996TT at those prices (if I didn't have 2 kids in college!!),.. and a GT2 would really be the car to punch around the track!, but probably not if there is THAT much of a difference in pricing.

1 out of 24 built for the US in 2004, might have something to do with it.

I have yet to see 911 GT2 (996) sell for anywhere near that. Just last year GT2's were not that much more then turbo's. I think these guys are shut gunning for a big pay days. Now that the market is slowing and credit is costing more I don't see how these prices are sustainable, especially air cooled cars. Time will tell...

I had a 01 996TT and a 06 Cayenne S. Both gone now but I purchased the 996 new and owned it 10+ years. Zero problems outside of warranty; just normal maintenance.

Just saw this thread. I have my perfect stable - '06 CTTS and '04 996TT X50. You can't go wrong with a 996TT if you do your homework before plunking down your cash for it.

Well got a 14 Cayenne Diesel and a 15 TTS. DD is a 17 Honda Accord. Probably selling the diesel after the fix/buyback/whatever. Moving to Fl and downsizing. Will be sad to see the Cayenne go though, great car.
