It's looking dangerously tempting again.

With prices starting around £22k for cars needing work, good examples at £28k and faultless cars in the £36.5k to £45k, these ballistic 911s make most rivals seem ludicrously expensive. Remember, the halo cars of the 996 range – Turbo, GT2 and GT3 – still used the near bombproof evolution of the Hans Mezge-designed flat six, not the fragile all-new engine designed for the 996 911 and 986 Boxster.

The 2001 Turbo pictured sold with H&H in November for a whiff under £23k, despite its 64.5k mileage and service history. Hard to think of a more invigorating way to spend that sort of sum that's actually legal.
