The 911, with the internal design number 993, remains the one true love for many Porsche purists.
Being the fourth-generation 911 design and the last 911 equipped with an air-cooled engine, it embodies what many Porsche drivers consider to be the heart of Porsche.
The 993’s integrated bumpers and pleasing design underscore the smooth elegance of its styling, including its new polyellipsoidheadlights, and the beauty sculpted into the curved flanks the 993 widebody. The 993 was produced from 1993-1998 and remains highly desirable today.
Launched in 1995, the exceptionally agile and powerful 911 Turbo set a range of new benchmarks in supercar performance. In a June, 1995 review, Motor Trend magazine proclaimed, “To beat this Stuttgart screamer into submission requires a force no less wieldy than the million-dollar 627-horsepower V-12 McLaren F1.”
As the last 911 Turbo to have an air-cooled engine, it offered maximum output of 400 hp from a 3.6 liter displacement, and featured a notable new “tray-table” fixed rear spoiler. With four fat wheels propelling the car forward, its 0-60 mph time registered a blistering 3.7 seconds, and 0-100 mph ticked by in 5.7 seconds, with the forward progression continuing until the speedometer crossed 180 mph. Beyond brutal acceleration and sheer speed, however, with its larger brakes, the turbo could stop from 60 mph in just 111 feet. It could also pull up to 1.00g on the skidpad.
Among the new features on the 993 Turbo was an electronically controlled viscous coupling all-wheel drive system – something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959 supercar, and a system that greatly improved the active safety and driving dynamics of the Turbo. Twin KKK K16 turbochargers, each featuring integrated wastegates and two charge-airintercoolers offered better response and a more linear power delivery.
As one of 1,297 examples shipped to the United States in 1996, the 911 Turbo represented the ultimate 911 variant in the Porsche model range.
