This book on the Porsche 911 (996) series is the fourth of a planned six. It carries on the tradition established with the author's first Porsche 911 book on the 964 series. Everything a 996 owner needs to know plus a lot more is contained within the covers of this book. Every known model and version is described. The various engines and engine management systems for the many different nations of the world are covered - no matter where the owner resides, their version of the 996 is addressed. Manual and Tiptronic transmissions, including the automatic transmission fitted to the AWD Carrera 4 and Turbo models, are explained in detail, as are the different suspension systems. All the new technology advancements of the 996 of which Ferry Porsche was so proud are written about, along with all the advantages and improvements over previous 911 models. With 1300 photos and extensive appendices, this is a fact packed book and a must for any 996 owner.
