We are pleased to present this 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior. Debuted with a new twin turbocharged flat-six engine displacing 3.6 liters, the 993 series saw the final iteration of the air cooled 911 Turbo. Originally purchased in Manhattan before being sold to an individual in Germany, this 1996 example has undergone over $25k worth of recent service within the past two years. Highlighting sought after details including Sport Seats with painted backrests and white instrument dials, this 993 Turbo is now being offered for auction by a seller in Germany in brilliant overall condition while displaying approximately 92k kilometers (57k miles) on the odometer.
Having received a recent full detail, the Guards Red finish on this 993 shows to be in excellent condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). This Turbo can be identified by its widened fenders, revised nose and distinctive body-colored rear spoiler. The factory 18” hollow-spoke Turbo Twist wheels have been recently refinished and are currently dressed in Pirelli P-Zero tires from 2018.
This 993 showcases a well-maintained black leather interior featuring Sport Seats with Guards Red painted seat backs. Other noteworthy details include red seatbelts, white faced instrument dials, a leather dashboard, fire extinguisher and rear window wiper. All gauges and accessories are stated to be fully functional.
This 993 carries an air cooled 3.6L twin turbocharged flat-six engine rated at 408 HP and 398 lb.-ft of torque from the factory. Power is distributed to all four wheels by way of a smooth 6-speed manual transmission making for a 0-60 time of approximately 4.4 seconds and a top speed of over 180 MPH. Within the past 2 years the seller notes that an engine-out service was performed at a cost of over $25k which included the installation of a new ECU, two new OEM turbochargers and a new clutch. Offered with a collection of service records indicating routine maintenance, this 993 is reported to be in ideal driving condition.
The sale of this Turbo will include service records, the original books and one master key. Marking the final generation of the air cooled 911 Turbo, this beautifully appointed 993 is a Porsche enthusiast’s dream.
