The last of Porsche’s air-cooled 911s was the 993 body style. Produced from 1994-1998, this 911 had a 3.6L air-cooled engine that produced 282 hp (270hp in 1994-1995) and 400 hp in the Turbo. Also specific to the 993 were the “soft” body lines of the front fenders, the angled front headlights, suspension that incorporated a kinematic toe adjustment, and a newly introduced 6 speed transmission from the 5 speed G50.
These were essentially the last of the hand-built cars prior to the introduction of the more mechanized and water-cooled 996’s in later 1998. The normally-aspirated cars were a direct variation of the earlier 964-series in general technology. However, the far more advanced 911 Turbo integrated a newly refined all-wheel-drive system, for the first time twin turbo technology to mitigate turbo lag, much larger 4 piston calipers front/rear, and the “wide-body” look to shroud the even larger rear tires. Hollow spoke “turbo twist” rims were developed to minimize un-sprung weight giving the Turbo a 0-60 time of just 4.0 seconds flat!
We are very pleased to release this 1997 911 Twin Turbo with only 25,XXX original miles. The car is presented in stunning Ocean metallic blue over cashmere and sits as a completely original, unaltered example. Long-term collector ownership has guaranteed perfect maintenance history as well as controlled indoor storage. The car rockets to 60 mph with full boost posting nearly 0.9 bar and every single system working exactly as it should.
Besides the wonderful color combination, factory options included powered leather front seats, rear window wiper, sunroof, and upgraded stereo system.
A welcome addition to any collection world-wide, this 993 Turbo is as stunning in person as it is in pictures.
