The 993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998, replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches.
The 993 Turbo Coupe was released in 1995. It featured a new turbochargers engine displacing 3.6 liters producing 402 hp. Twin turbochargers and air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals were used. The 993 Turbo was the first Porsche Turbo with all-wheel drive. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to any of the previous production Turbos. In connection with two catalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, it also made the 993 Turbo the cleanest sports car at its time. The Turbo’s bodywork differs from the Carrera body by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper mouldings and a fixed rear wing housing the intercoolers. new 18-inch alloy wheels with weight-reducing hollow spokes were standard.
Finished in Ocean Blue metallic with a Stone Grey leather interior, this low-mileage 993 Turbo was delivered to its first UK owner in 1995, and enjoyed long-term ownership for a number of years until 2016. Showing a mere 32,000 miles recorded, the car has recently benefitted from the fitting of replacement turbos and rocker gaskets, and a cosmetic refresh.
With the values of modern classic Porsches firmly on the march, we believe now is the time to invest in a low mileage example of one of the ultimate air-cooled Porsches you can buy.
