While the 996.1 represents the first of the now-idolised GT3 lineage, Porsche’s 997.2 arguably represents its sweet spot. Think passive rear axle, six-speed manual gearbox and glorious, mechanically assisted power steering all combining to create a scintillating driving experience, powered by a stonking flat six producing 435hp at a heady 7,900rpm. Few 911s offer a more communicative, intoxicating drive outside of the Rennsport lineup, and the subsequent 991’s bloated, tech-laden repertoire has only served to further rose-tint the spectacles with which purists look at the last 997. As the 911 marches towards even greater digital integration going forward, the 997.2 will only appear more classic, boosting its appeal among purists.
