1997 Porsche 993 Turbo w/ Upgrades

Now available for auction is this 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo finished in Black over a black leather interior. Sporting wide bodywork, massive brakes, lightweight wheels, and a twin-turbocharged air-cooled engine sending power to all four wheels, the Turbo was the flagship model of the 993 generation and one of the most iconic poster cars of the late 1990s.  This 1997 Turbo features optional supple leather seats, aluminum instrument dials, and leather/aluminum shifter and brake handles.  It has also been extensively serviced and upgraded within the last 100 miles with a GIAC Stage 2 performance kit, Bilstein heavy duty dampers, RS engine mounts, new bushings, new brakes, A/C system overhaul, CV joint service, a refinished intercooler, and much more.  A tastefully upgraded driver-grade example, this 993 Turbo is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Oklahoma with approximately 133k miles showing on the odometer.

This Turbo comes finished in Black and features distinctive wide fenders, model-specific fascias, flared rocker panels, and a fixed body-colored rear spoiler.  Some chips are noted on the front end as well as some other signs of road-going wear throughout the exterior.  The front bumper has been recently refinished for cosmetic purposes and new headlight lenses were installed along with new hood and decklid struts, wiper blades, sunroof seals, and a Euro 993 front splitter.  Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.  The new brake calipers have received a custom Bahama Yellow finish. Updated 996 Turbo hollow-spoke wheels have been installed, finished in satin silver, and fitted with colored center crests.  New Pirelli Trofeo R Compound tires were also mounted within the last 200 miles.

The cabin is upholstered in black full leather with optional supple leather seats, aluminum instrument dials, and a shifter and brake lever trimmed in leather and aluminum.  Litronic xenon headlamps are equipped as standard in addition to air conditioning, full-power seats, a rear window wiper, and an onboard computer.  A three-spoke leather steering wheel has been fitted along with a new airbag, red seatbelts, an upgraded Sony stereo, and a digital GReddy boost controller mounted above the center binnacle.  The dome light switch was also recently replaced along with the cabin air filter and a new odometer gear installed by North Hollywood Speedometer.  The carpets are protected by Turbo-logo floor mats and signs of wear are present on the front seats, door panels, and rear side panels.  The A/C was recently serviced and overhauled with a new evaporator, receiver dryer, and expansion valve.

The 993 Turbo features an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six engine fitted with twin turbochargers and dual-charge air intercoolers.  Thanks to the smaller twin-turbo configuration, this engine offered a significant improvement in throttle response at low revs compared to its single-turbo predecessor.  With a compression ratio of 8.0:1, the engine produces up to 408 HP and 298 lb.-ft of torque stock, which is sent to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission.  The dynamic slip system with Active Brake Differential (ABD) and limited-slip differential were offered as standard equipment.  Stopping power is handled by fixed 4-piston Brembo brake calipers paired with 322mm cross-drilled rotors front and rear.  Muffler bypasses have been installed, and modifications and service carried within the last 100 miles are said to include the following:

  • GIAC Stage 2 90hp Kit 
  • Bilstein HD Dampers with Porsche OE Springs
  • GT2 Front Uprights
  • GT2 Inner Tie Rods
  • RS Outer Tie Rods
  • New Front Wheel Bearings
  • RS Engine Mounts
  • Intercooler and Fan Shroud Refinished (Piano Black Paint)
  • Fuel Injectors Ultrasonically Cleaned

  • Corner Balance and Alignment
  • All Fluids Flushed Including Hydraulic System
  • New Factory Brake Rotors And Pads, All Four Corners
  • Brand New Brake Calipers Installed
  • Front CV Boots Replaced, CV Joints Serviced

This sale will include the original mufflers and a clean title.  Generously upgraded and serviced to extract the most performance, this 993 Turbo is a true driver’s car.  Do not miss your chance to get behind the wheel.

  • DV993 (registered bidder) 1 week, 3 daysago

    Do we know actual mileage Carfax shows 2008 reading of 133,483 add says 133,485. Any idea of the true number?

    @Jdsarn With the previous owner having put on the GIAC kit recently, it was safe for us to assume he was confident in the current condition of the motor. There are certainly no known issues with the motor. It runs out extremely strong.

  • Jdsarn 2 weeksago

    Do you have any compression tests or numbers? As a representative and dealer, have you done any independent inspection or tests?

  • anelson (seller) 2 weeksago

    @sportscarguy3 thanks for the kind words! It does sound awesome!

  • sportscarguy3 (registered bidder) 2 weeksago

    Dig the exhaust note
    It sound quite like my Fab-Speed muffler by-pass pipes on my 1996 TT
    ( which I sold too soon ! )
    Even with the miles this 993 TT should do well
    Good Luck all
