1996 Porsche 993 Turbo VIN: WP0AC2993TS375186 This 993 Turbo with only 5,600 miles, in stunning black metallic with classic gray leather interior, was purchased in North Carolina in July of 1995. The original owner had the car for more than fifteen years and rarely drove it. It was serviced regularly. The car was sold in 2010 to a private collector in Montana and made its way to California soon after. With only two owners, this 993 has been well maintained and well cared for. Upgraded options include a complete digital sound package, 8-CD storage on console, leather loud speaker covers, leather covered instrument rings, rim caps with Porsche Crest, Porsche floor mats in classic gray, metal door sill with insignia, and carbon shifter and brake handle. This car has been through a complete inspection and a concours quality detail at Canepa Design. It is ready to be driven and enjoyed by any Porsche enthusiast. Porsche 993 History The Porsche 993 is the company's internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998, replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches. Like previous and future generations of the Porsche 911, there were several variants of the car manufactured, varying in body style, drivetrains, and included equipment. The Porsche 993 was replaced by the Porsche 996. Citing cost reasons the designer of the Porsche 993 used the doors of the Porsche 964 in the design of the Porsche 993; along with the flat-6 engines (and gearbox in 2wd variants) these are reported to be only major components carried over. Technical improvements One of the changes in the 993 over preceding 911s is the implementation of an all-alloy multi-arm rear suspension attached to an all-alloy subframe. Its design was derived from the project 989, a four-door sedan that never went into production, and was later continued in the 993's successor, type 996. It required the aforementioned widening of the rear wheel arches, which itself helped the 993's stability. This suspension improved the 993's cornering abilities, making it more direct and more stable and helping to reduce the tendency to oversteer if throttle was lifted during hard cornering, a trait of earlier 911s. It also reduced interior noise and improved ride quality. The 993 was the first generation of 911 to have a standard six-speed manual transmission; previous cars, except for the Porsche 959, had 4- or 5-speed gearboxes. In virtually every situation, it was possible to keep the engine in its best torque range above 4500 rpm. Further, the 993's optional all wheel drive system was refined over that of the 964. Porsche departed from the 964's setup consisting of three differentials and revised the system based on the layout from its 959 supercar, replacing the center differential with a viscous coupling unit. In conjunction with the 993's redesigned and recalibrated suspension, this system improved handling characteristics and still retained the stability offered by AWD without having to suffer compromises in understeer. Its simpler layout also reduced the system's weight. Other improvements include a new dual-flow exhaust, larger brakes with drilled discs, and revised power steering. 993 Turbo The 993 Turbo coupe was released in 1995. It featured a new turbocharged engine displacing 3.6 liters. Twin turbochargers and air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals were used. The 993 Turbo was the first Porsche Turbo with all wheel drive. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to any of the previous production Turbos. In connection with two catalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, it also made the 993 Turbo the cleanest sports car at its time. The Turbo's bodywork differs from the Carrera body by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper moldings, and a fixed rear wing housing the intercoolers. New 18-inch (460 mm) alloy wheels with weight-reducing hollow spokes were standard.
