The 993 Turbo was introduced in 1996 featuring full time four-wheel drive for the first time on a production 911 Turbo. The 3.6-litre engine was fitted with a pair of KKK K16 turbochargers and Bosch M5.2 engine management. Output was 408bhp at 5750rpm. Performance was explosive with a top speed of 184mph and 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds. Like all turbocharged 911s, this latest variant received heavily flared wheel arches and a static rear spoiler. Unique to these cars, the body-coloured rear wings were fixed in place and housed the turbocharger intercoolers.
The final air-cooled iteration of the 911, the 993 Turbo threads the perfect balance of analogue experience with minimal digital interference, in a compact package like 911s of old. A true giant at birth of the everyday supercar. Superior road holding and unrivalled performance lead to comparisons with the almighty 959 .
This U.K. supplied example was delivered new by Lancaster Cambridge to Mike Schafer of Bedfordshire, on 3rd February 1996. Finished in stunning Midnight Blue Metallic (L39C) over a two-tone leather interior of Marble Grey and Midnight Blue Leather, beautifully complementing the exterior colour. Additionally, this example benefits from sports seats and the lesser seen sunroof.
Retaining its complete factory-supplied book pack, the service book features no fewer than 17 stamps, exclusively from Porsche main dealers and Porsche specialists. The accompanying history file includes 19 MOT certificates, and the associated invoices chronicle the car’s mileage and service history. Both verify that it has travelled just 23,950 miles to date, since leaving the factory. Its most recent annual service was carried out by Porsche Centre Sheffield in 2021, and the car has been driven less than 600 miles since.
Having remained in the U.K. since new, this example presents beautifully throughout and is available at our showrooms outside London immediately.
