The 993 Turbo presented here is a particularly noteworthy example of Porsche’s air-cooled, twin turbocharged all-wheel-drive flagship. Delivered in the iconic and desirable combination of Polar Silver with black leather interior, this particular 993 boasts exceptional factory finishes showing the dutiful care of its limited ownership. Highly outfitted with standard features, this Turbo was further specified with seat heating left and right, automatic speed control, a six-disc CD changer, and a sunroof.

The Turbo’s impeccable condition is further enhanced by its extremely low mileage, displaying just over 8,400 miles at the time of cataloguing. The 993 has been well maintained, with its most recent service completed in August 2014 by Barrier Motors in Bellevue, Washington. Offered with the original manual set, radio accompaniments, tools, and records, including the original window sticker and a CARFAX report, this 993 Turbo is arguably one of the finest examples available today.

With a top speed of 180 mph and a 0 to 60 time of 4.4 seconds, the 993 Turbo offers exhilarating performance and phenomenal handling. As the 993 garners further collectability as Porsche’s last classic, air-cooled example, the Turbo versions, of which far fewer were constructed, have become highly sought-after 911s. With the condition and mileage of the example offered here, this Porsche is sure to catch the attention of astute, forward-thinking enthusiasts.
