We are pleased to present this 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo finished in Arena Red Metallic over a black leather interior. Marking the final generation of air cooled 911 Turbo, this 993 remains one of the most highly collectible vintage Porsche’s on the road. Having been under the care of its original owner up until this day, this Turbo has been diligently maintained throughout its life with a comprehensive engine-out service performed in 2017 at a cost of over $15k. Equipped with a stage 1 performance tune which is said to add up to 61 HP, this Turbo is now being offered for auction in fantastic driving condition by its seller in Maryland while showing approximately 91k miles on the odometer.
The Arena Red Metallic finish is noted to be in good condition for its age with clear paint protection film applied over the hood and front bumper. Some chips have been indicated in the paint protection film and the seller notes that the left rear fender was professionally refinished following a minor incident (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). This Turbo features widened fenders, a distinctive rear spoiler and factory equipped hollow spoke Twist alloy wheels which come dressed in Pirelli P Zero tires.
Inside, the black leather upholstered cabin is said to be in excellent condition while retaining its factory specifications. The original radio remains in place and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
This 993 is equipped with an air cooled 3.6 L twin turbocharged flat-six engine which is rated at 408 HP stock. A 6-speed manual transmission distributes power to all four wheels making for a factory 0-60 time of approximately 4 seconds. An Auto Authority stage 1 tune has also been applied resulting in claimed power gains of up to 61 HP. A new clutch was installed at 50k miles, a comprehensive engine-out service was performed in 2017 at a cost of over $15k and the turbochargers were rebuilt in 2018 along with a full standard service.
