Lot 341: Porsche 911/993 Turbo
The Porsche 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. Like previous and future generations of the Porsche 911, there were several variants of the car manufactured, varying in body style, drivetrains and included equipment. The Porsche 993 was replaced by the Porsche 996. Citing cost reasons, the designer of the Porsche 993 used the doors of the Porsche 964 in the design of the Porsche 993; along with the flat-6 engines (and gearbox in 2wd variants) these are reported to be only major components carried over. The turbo version displaced 3.6 litres with twin turbochargers and air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals. 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, re-designed front and rear bumper mouldings and a fixed rear wing housing the intercoolers. This stunning example is supplied with a manual gearbox and has just 39,000 miles recorded. Resplendent in metallic blue with a blue leather interior and contrasting yellow brake callipers, it is set off by the addition of the desirable carbon pack and full Turbo 'S' pack including 'S' spoiler, intakes and rear wing. Just three previous owners feature on the registration documents and the interior benefits from central locking, climate control, on-board computer, electric mirrors and windows. Complete with a full service history (including recent service), Tracker and full MoT, this extremely potent 911 looks great and certainly delivers the beans when asked.
