Very much like the 996. She’s beautiful, slim and very sexy. She has faults too. Let’s list them and move on. The clutch is heavy. The mirrors are plain daft. My butt is being fried and I can’t afford it. Did I mention how beautiful she is?

Here I am, staring at a 1993 design that looks as fresh today as it did back then. There’s more to the Duck than good looks though and that beauty is still more than just skin deep on this latest 2001 Biposto 996. I’m no stranger to this breed, I flirted with a yellow 748 back in 97 and a 95 916 last Year: . Since the “divine” intervention of the Texas Pacific Group back in 1997 we really have seen the marque go from strength to strength. Quality control and customer satisfaction is deemed a higher priority and it shows.
