Finished in Ocean blue metallic, this Turbo looks sensational.
The paint work is exceptional . Ownership has clearly been fastidious and it appears the car has been dry stored throughout its life with a clean underside, and a near new factory quality finish across lights, glass, rubbers and plastics.
The cabin is covered with soft black leather, extending to the dashboard and door panels. Both front seats are in excellent order, they are heated with 8-way electrical operation for maximum comfort control. All the controls retains a fresh texture and operate as they should.
Under the bonnet the options sticker still remains, with all tools still present beneath the front carpet.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The engine compartment and underside are notably clean, leaving no doubt that this example has been very well maintained and stored throughout its life. The flat-six Turbo provides a huge rush of acceleration, completing the 0-60 dash in a mere 3.4 seconds.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
All of the alloys are in excellent condition and are shod in a matching set of Michelin Pilot Sport tyres, which have plenty of tread remaining. The red Porsche calipers are immaculate, and the discs and pads only show minimal wear.
Supplied new in October 1996 this very high spec LHD Turbo has been very well maintained.
The 993 Turbo coupé was introduced in 1995. It featured a new twin turbocharged engine displacing 3.6 liters and generating a maximum power output of 408 PS (300 kW; 402 hp). Air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals completed the new engine. The 993 Turbo was the first 911 Turbo with all wheels drive, taken from the 959 flagship model. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to its predecessors. In connection with two catalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, the 993 Turbo was the cleanest sports car of its time. The Turbo’s bodywork differs from the Carrera by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper moldings, and a fixed “whale tail” rear wing housing the intercoolers. New 18 in (460 mm) alloy wheels with hollow spokes were standard.
The factory X50 pack increased the performance of the engine to 450bhp.
The 993 Turbo was one of the first production cars in the world to have OBDII disagnostics system. (the 3.8-litre and GT versions didn’t have that system, and the normally aspirated 993 variants didn’t get it until 1996 model year). The successors of the 993 Turbo since have had water-cooled heads. The car also had brakes that were larger than those on the base Carrera model.
