Porsche 911 996 or 997

Mid life crisis here, I have agreed not to buy another bike but thinking of buying a 911 instead.

I have already decided I dont want tiptronic but cant decide if I should pay the extra for the 997 I get the lights look way better and that there have been problems with the water cooling on the 996s but can anyone give any other pros and cons please ?

As most regard the 996 mechanicals as poor then the 997 becomes a no brainer,if that's your 2.

Its a folly I intend to do around 5k a year in the summer, I need the back seats and something that I can drive without too much difficulty.

The 996 is cheaper in part for being a bit older which is the only appeal of the 996 over the 997 its just trying to work out what that is worth.

or save a buck load of cash and pre order the Ducati V4 street fighter.
The logical mid point is a Cayman having driven the S and a 911 I know where my cash if I had it spare would go.
Yep the Ducati no the Cayman.

Go for a post 08 (so a 997.2) and you wont need to worry about IMS failure. Bore scoring wont be an issue either.

Like you I prefer looks of the 997.

Go to an indie garage and try one of each?

Cayman has no rear seats otherwise that would be obvious choice
