The Porsche 996 was a new design developed by Pinky Lai under Porsche design chief Harm Lagaay from 1992 to 1994. Due to Porsche's desire for the design team to create a 911 for the new millennium, it was the first 911 that was entirely reworked and carried over little from its predecessor. The 996 had a new body, interior, and the first water-cooled engine.
Most models of the 996 generation of the Porsche 911 (excluding GT3 / GT3 RS / GT2 & Turbo models) sports cars were afflicted with a vulnerability in the intermediate shaft (IMS) that drove their engines' camshafts. Loss of the ball bearing within the IMS results in varying degrees of engine failure. In general, if an IMS bearing fails, the engine's interior may be contaminated with fault debris, necessitating engine disassembly and rebuilding. Additionally, when failure modes are severe, the cam timing may be impacted, resulting in valve-piston impact and calling for an engine rebuild or replacement.
Porsche 996, on the other hand, is an unusual car in many ways; This vehicle is easier to drive overall, lighter, and faster. The car's rear engine gave it a distinctive set of handling traits. The 996 was completely different from the vehicles that came before it in terms of its chassis and suspension system. It uses a 3.4-liter flat-6 engine with a 221-kW maximum power output (300 PS; 296 hp). The front end of the 996 was identical to that of the base Boxster. The 3.6-liter, twin-turbocharged, inter-cooled flat-six engine in the 996 Turbo, coupled with four-wheel drive, allows for a maximum power output of 309 kW (420 PS; 414 horsepower), allowing the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
