The 996 series Porsche 911, sold 1997-2005, was the first to feature water-cooled engines, breaking the long tradition of air-cooled units - but it was still very much a 911. Which? doesn't provide a test score or reliability rating for older models like this — we recommend choosing a newer alternative.
