The fourth generation (1999-2005) was internally known as the 996, and was the first water cooled engine for the 911. This was the first version to use a different body shell from the original 911 design.
The fifth generation (2005-11) was internally known as the 997 and had a similar design to its predecessor but going back to the ‘bug eye’ headlight design of the original 911.
