The 993 is the company’s internal name for the version pf the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and 1998, replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches.
The 993 Turbo was released in 1995. It featured a new turbocharged engine displacing 3.6 liters producing 402 hp. Tin 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 previous production Turbos. The Turbo’s bodywork differs from the Carrera body by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6cm), 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.
This fine matching numbers example of a 993 Turbo is one of the last air cooled and hand-built cars produced by Porsche. Having covered just 19,409 Km’s from new the car is in fantastic condition whilst also maintaining ‘complete originality’. Having enjoyed meticulous ownership throughout its life the car has a full PSH, a full German Service and Guarantee book and included are all invoices for servicing. The last service was carried out at the Porsche Center in Willich in October 2015. One of the highest spec examples of this car, it employs an extensive list of extras including electric seats and diff to name a few. Interestingly this example is one of very few to be delivered and registered before the release date of the model making it one of the most desirable and exclusive cars on the road.
