Built from 1994 to 1998, the 993 was Porsche’s last air-cooled 911. Representing an aesthetic change of direction at Stuttgart, the 993 was considered revolutionary in terms of performance, comfort, and safety. In 1995, a 993 Turbo arrived with a twin-turbocharged engine, widened wheel arches, sculpted rear spoiler, and a six-speed gearbox incorporating four-wheel drive. Motor Trend magazine called the new Turbo “the most brutally accelerating, best-handling, best-braking Porsche ever sold in the USA” in its June 1995 issue. 0–60 mph transpired in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 180 mph.
This two-owner 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo is finished in black over a gray supple leather interior. In addition to a high level of standard equipment, additional extras include a leather parking brake lever, leather sun visors, and – seldomly seen in the US – the sunroof-delete option, which lessened the car’s weight and lowered its center of gravity. Registering approximately 16,100 miles from new, this example presents beautifully throughout, and is accompanied by maintenance history from new, including a major service performed in July 2019 by Aristocrat Motors in Merriam, Kansas, the car’s original selling dealership.
Turbo models have always been among Porsche’s most iconic offerings. Accompanied by its books, tools, keys, window sticker, jack, and space-saver spare, this low-mileage and original 993 Turbo will surely make an outstanding addition to any Porsche collection.
