1997 Porsche 911 Turbo

The Porsche 911 (993) Turbo

In the 911 Turbo from the 993 model line, twin turbocharging was used for the first time, with one smaller turbocharger installed in each cylinder bank. It was also the first Turbo model to feature all-wheel drive. The front apron of the Turbo had three separate air openings at the front plus air slots for brake cooling in the lower side area. The rear spoiler was completely painted in the exterior colour. Like the Carrera 4 models, the 911 Turbo also had white direction indicators at the front and red at the rear.

The 3.6-litre biturbo engine developed a power output of 408 hp as standard. As of model year 1998, Porsche offered the 993 Turbo S with power output increased to 450 hp.

This Porsche 911 (993) Turbo

According to factory records, this car is one of only eleven 993 ordered with all available Porsche Exclusive options, among them rear seat delete; full leather interior; instruments, gearshift and handbrake gaiters as well as seat belts in exterior colour; sport seats with Porsche logo embossed into the headrests, special stitching in exterior colour, interior carbon package (like Turbo S), sound system etc.

The first Californian owner turned to Bosch to have the Motronic M 5.2 engine management system upgraded, the two KKK turbochargers modified and a custom made intercooler fitted. All these measures increased power output from 420 hp to 480 hp (30 hp more than in the Turbo S). Now equipped with a Fabspeed performance exhaust system, the car runs and drives accordingly with a thrilling exhaust note.

With only three previous owners and 48,900 km on the clock, this car has always been properly cared for with alll service records available. It still wears its factory original paint in excellent condition and the interior with its striking black-yellow colour scheme is unmarked.

A car for spirited driving and the perfect addition to any serious Porsche collection. Truly needs to be seen (and heard) to be appreciated. Please view the attached video!
