From my standpoint, I have both a 986S and a 911SC. There's really no comparison here, as the are both completely different cars, although both are undeniabliy Porsche. Frankly, the Boxster does nearly everything better, go pedal, stop pedal, you name it. The SC is old school all the way, no power steering, AC, air bags or ABS. Just a plain old handbuilt 911 that was built with a singular purpose in mind.

Back to the original question about a comparo of the newer cars, 986 vs 996. My 2 cents is that for me, the question depends on the need for rear seats. When the time comes, I'll want to be able to stuff a grandkid or two in the back, and when/if that time comes, I'll trade the boxcar for a 996 or, even more hopefully a 997 given a few more years of depreciation.
