The Porsche 996 is considered the ugly duckling of the 911s. This mainly comes down to two things. 1) The 996 represented the first Porsche 911 that was water cooled (previously they were all air cooled, like old VWs). 2) Those headlights. People seem to hate them. They diverged from the classic, iconic circular design.
Because of all that (which to most people, excluding the purists, is pretty minor) the 996 is amazingly affordable for a p-car. Also because of all that, I feel like you rarely see modified 996s, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem on Speedhunters.
