We are pleased to offer this 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo finished in Grand Prix White. The last of the air-cooled 911 Turbos, the 993 was one of the quickest production cars of its day, featuring a twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, all-wheel-drive system, lightweight hollow-spoke wheels, and a 6-speed manual transmission. Originally sold in California in October of 1996, this 993 Turbo was ordered with a Midnight Blue full leather interior, supple leather seats, and the Nokia Digital Sound Package. Upon the current owner’s acquisition in 2019 at 35,799 miles, the car was treated to major preventive service including valve adjustments, new spark plugs, engine seals, rebuilt turbochargers, a new clutch kit, and more. A stunning example of one of the most sought-after air-cooled cars of all time, this 993 is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Florida while showing just under 36k miles on the odometer.
This Turbo comes finished in Grand Prix White and rides on factory 18” Technology hollow-spoke wheels in a custom chromed finished. The intercooler was also custom finished in red under previous ownership to match the large Brembo brake calipers. Compared to a standard 993 Carrera, the Turbo features wider bodywork, broader rocker panels, a color-matched rear spoiler, and a unique front fascia with three lower air inlets. The factory wheels were dressed in a set of new Michelin Pilot Sport tires in 2018. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, this 993 showcases a beautiful Midnight Blue full leather interior with optional supple leather seats. The original matching floor mats with leather edging have been well preserved and will also accompany the sale. Factory features include an electric sunroof, automatic speed control, a 6-disc remote CD changer, and the premium Nokia Digital Sound Package (DSP). A rear window wiper, onboard computer, Litronic xenon headlights, and power-operated seats are also equipped as standard. The cabin has been kept in excellent condition throughout the years and the original Porsche CR-210 radio remains fully functional.
The 993 Turbo carries an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six engine equipped with twin KKK type K-16 turbochargers, dual-charge air intercoolers, hydraulic lifters, and Bosch Motronic M 5.2 engine management. Thanks to the use of two smaller turbochargers rather than one larger unit, the 993 offered greatly improved throttle response at low revs compared to its predecessor. A 6-speed manual transmission distributes as much as 408 HP and 398 lb.-ft of torque to all four wheels. The dynamic limited-slip system with Active Brake Differential (ABD) and a limited-slip differential are equipped as standard along with red-painted 4-piston fixed aluminum brake calipers paired with 322mm rotors front and rear. An aftermarket performance exhaust has been installed as well. A full 30k-mile service was performed on the car in 2006, and the current owner opted for additional preventive service at the time of their purchase in 2019 including valve adjustments, resealed valve and chain box covers, various new O-rings and gaskets, a rebuild of both turbochargers, a new clutch kit and slave cylinder, and oil and filter changes. A collection of service records is said to accompany the sale dating back to the original purchase.
This sale will include a set of two keys with remote fobs, one spare key, the original owner's manuals, floor mats, service records, and a clean title. No Porsche collection is complete without a 993 Turbo, and this beautifully preserved 1997 example is just waiting to be enjoyed by a new caretaker.
