The last generation of the air-cooled 911 Turbo, the 993 model debuted a new twin-turbocharged flat-six engine paired with an all-wheel-drive system and 6-speed manual transmission. This 1996 example was purchased new in Illinois and spent time in California and Oklahoma before being acquired by the current owner in 2016. In preparation for sale, an engine-out service totaling over $25k was performed including a full engine reseal and rebuilds of both turbochargers. Accompanied by a Porsche Classic Technical Certificate, this 1996 993 Turbo is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Illinois.
This Turbo is finished in Black (L471) and features a power sunroof, rear window wiper, headlight washers, and dual polished exhaust tips. Compared to a standard 993 Carrera, the Turbo model is equipped with wider bodywork, unique front and rear bumpers, “Big Red” brake calipers, and a fixed rear spoiler. The seller reports that the factory hood had a small number of stone chips which lead then to install a replacement hood that was painted to factory specifications (5 mils). The origianal hood will be included with the sale. The full exterior was also treated with Modesta BC-4 and BC-05 zirconium ceramic coating after a Level 2 paint correction was completed by Chicago Auto Pros. The original hollow-spoke 18” Technology wheels come fitted with colored Porsche caps and new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
The black full leather interior includes optional power-adjustable heated front seats with lumbar support, a Becker cassette AM/FM radio, a trunk-mounted 6 CD changer, automatic climate control, and black floormats with red Turbo logos. The interior’s condition was rated “excellent” on the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate.
The air-cooled 3.6L flat-six engine features twin K-16 turbochargers, dual-charge air intercoolers, and Bosch Motronic M 5.2 engine management. A 6-speed manual transmission sends up to 408 HP and 398 lb.-ft of torque to all four wheels while stopping power is handled by fixed 4-piston aluminum “Big Red” Brembo brake calipers with cross-drilled rotors front and rear. The dynamic Active Brake Differential (ABD) and a limited-slip differential are also equipped as standard. Modifications include a Bilstein PSS10 coilover kit and a carbon-fiber Turbo S shock tower brace. In preparation for the sale, an engine-out service was completed by Perfect Power of Buffalo Grove, IL, including the replacement of the spark plugs, valve cover gaskets, oil return check valves, and chain box gaskets along with rebuilt and blueprinted turbochargers.
This sale will include extensive service documentation, owner’s manuals, and a Porsche Classic Techincal Certificate.
