Up for auction is this 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo finished in Polar Silver Metallic. Marking the end of the air-cooled era for the 911 Turbo, the 993 was one of the fastest production cars of its day and the first 911 Turbo to utilize an all-wheel-drive configuration. This 1996 example was delivered new in Canada with black full leather upholstery, optional heated seats, a sunroof, and cruise control. Acquired by the current owner in 2008, this Turbo is now being offered for auction out of Ontario, Canada.
This 993 was ordered in Polar Silver Metallic and is distinguishable as a Turbo by its wide bodywork, broad rocker panels, color-matched rear spoiler, and unique front fascia with three lower air inlets. Some stone chips are noted on the front end and the factory-applied rear fender stone guards show signs of age, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a damage-free CARFAX report. The factory 18" Technology hollow-spoke wheels come dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
Inside, the cabin features black full leather upholstery, an electric sunroof, and optional heated front seats. A rear window wiper, onboard computer, Litronic xenon headlights, and power-operated front seats are also equipped as standard. An aftermarket radio has been installed and only very minor signs of wear are reported throughout the cabin. The seller states that the odometer malfunctioned several years ago and has not been replaced with approximately 2k miles driven since. A mileage inconsistency is shown on CARFAX and a clean title will accompany the sale.
The 993 Turbo carries an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six engine equipped with twin type K-16 turbochargers, dual-charge air intercoolers, hydraulic lifters, 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. 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. The seller reports routine oil services to have been carried out by Downtown Fine Cars of Toronto.
Accompanied by a clean title, this 993 Turbo awaits its next owner.
