The Porsche 996 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between 1998 and 2005. At its debut, it featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its introduction in 1963. The most important among these is the fully water-cooled engine, replacing the previously air-cooled engines (which were considerably more reliable than the new water cooled models), used exclusively by the Carrera models. More stringent noise regulations and higher customer expectations for both refinement and a higher performance 4 valve per cylinder engine made the switch necessary. The 996 Carrera (not GT2, GT3 and Turbo models) engine is designed with what Porsche calls “integrated dry sump oiling”. This “integrated dry sump” engine does not have an oil scavenge pump in the crankcase to pump the engine oil to a separate holding tank outside the crankcase as a true dry sump design would have. The only scavenge pumps in the 996 engine are in the camshaft boxes and the oil is pumped from there to the bottom of the crankcase as it would be in any “wet sump” engine. Other changes include a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a re-designed interior.
