Past Growth

Over the past 5 years, the Porsche 911 (996.2) Carrera Coupé has shown an impressive compound annual growth rate of 19.3%. This is based on an average sales price in 2018 of €20,103, which is calculated from available data points from auctions, and the current sales price of €48,500.
The Porsche 996 replaced the 944 as the best-selling Porsche sports car of all time and in 1998, the 996 Carrera 2 won Evo magazine’s prestigious “Car of the Year” award.

Model History

In the mid-1990s Porsche was haemorrhaging money and the threat of a takeover was looming. In 1993 the designers Pinky Lai and Grant Larson working under the head of Style Porsche, Harm Lagaay were assigned the monstrous task of designing the 996-generation 911. The fate of the 911 was in their hands.
The 996 Carrera Coupe made its world debut at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show. Controversially, it bore more than a passing resemblance to the cheaper Boxster, which didn’t please many Porsche enthusiasts.

After 5 years of production, in 2002, the 996 was freshened up. The front end became more distinct from the Boxster via the adoption of the “eyes-wide-open” headlights as seen on the Turbo the previous year. Other changes for 2002 weren’t as obvious but still noteworthy as they improved overall handling and performance. Given all these upgrades, a Porsche 911 996 from 2002 through 2004 will likely be the sweet spot for most investors.
