The successor to the Porsche 993 model of the famed Porsche 911 was the model internally named 996, which was introduced in 1998. and made a big impression on everyone who enjoys these types of cars. At its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction. Most important among these is the water-cooled engine, replacing the previously air-cooled engines. More stringent noise regulations and higher customer expectations for both refinement and a higher performance 4 valve per cylinder engine made the switch necessary.
In 2000, Porsche debuted the 996 Turbo, equipped with four-wheel-drive and a 3.6 litre, twin turbocharged and intercooled flat-six producing 420 bhp (309 kW), making the car capable of 4.2 second 0 to 60 mph times. An X50 option which included larger turbochargers and intercoolers along with revised engine control software became available from the factory in 2002, increasing power to 450 hp (336 kW). Probably the next best thing to the almost track only models of the GT version, that Porsche introduced around the same time.
After years passed since it’s introduction, the automotive fans who really enjoyed these cars got to making them even better. This includes rather breathtaking visual modifications, as well as lighter, more aggressive amazing wheels like these. The D2Forged is one of the companies producing wheels to the customers liking.
