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 making it one of the most desirable models.
The 993 Turbo Coupe was released in 1995. It featured a new turbocharged engine displacing 3.6 litres and producing 402bhp.
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 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 993 Turbo was originally delivered new to Germany and is now registered in Belgium. Showing just 124,000 km on the odometer, this well-kept fast classic is ready immediately to be enjoyed by its new custodian.
