Now available for auction is this 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo finished in Black over a black leather interior. This 993 was originally purchased in Beverly Hills and remained in California up until 2018. Previously listed on PCARMARKET in a removable Guards Red vinyl wrap, this Turbo has since undergone cosmetic refurbishments and upgrades including RS engine mounts, a short-throw shifter, a new Blaupunkt radio, Fabspeed muffler bypass pipes, genuine 18" Fuchs wheels, and more. Benefitting from considerable investment over the past year, this Turbo is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Texas while showing approximately 65k miles on the odometer.
This Turbo comes finished in Black and rides on genuine 18” Fuchs wheels dressed in new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Since the vinyl wrap was removed earlier in 2021, the front hood, bumper covers, door handles, mirror housings, rocker panels, and rear wing have all been refinished in their original Black color. The brake calipers have been refinished in red and the front bumperettes were also deleted in favor of air duct inserts. Following the paintwork, the car was treated to comprehensive professional detailing including a full paint correction and ceramic coating treatment. Some dents and cosmetic imperfections are noted throughout the body as depicted in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, you will find a black full leather interior with optional supple leather seats, white instrument dials, red seatbelts, and a custom carbon fiber trimmed steering wheel by Exclusive Design. Other modifications include stainless steel pedal covers, aluminum instrument bezels, a custom black shift knob and rubber boot, a carbon fiber handbrake cover, and carbon-fiber print trim on the center console and instrument surround. New LED interior lighting has also been installed along with a new Blaupunkt radio. Some signs of wear are present on the front seats and the seller reports weak AM/FM reception from the radio antenna.
Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.6L flat-six engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. As much as 408 HP and 398 lb.-ft of torque are distributed 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 fixed 4-piston aluminum brake calipers paired with 322mm rotors front and rear. Upgrades installed recently include RS engine mounts, RS short shifter golden rod assembly, and Fabspeed muffler bypass pipes with exhaust tips. The intercooler has been recently refinished in black and a new RS transmission mount is said to accompany the sale.
This sale will include some service records and a clean title. For any enthusiast looking to get behind the wheel of a 993 Turbo, this upgraded 1996 example is not to be overlooked.
