Completed at the Porsche factory on December 2nd, 1995, this Turbo was purchased on January 31st, 1996 at Princeton Porsche in New Jersey. Its first owner, George L. Bunting of Easton, MD would keep the car for only two years, amassing just 7,498 miles.
The Turbo’s next owner would be in it for the long haul, having it in his possession for the next 14 years. He drove it rarely, covering less than 2,000 miles from 1999 to 2013. Right before its sale in July of 2013 the car received a major service. Having covered only 900 miles since 2005 the car was fully prepped for regular road use.
The car’s last owners kept the Turbo as a collectable, and covered only 500 miles from 2013 to 2015. In late 2015 the Turbo arrived at Canepa for the first time and was mechanically inspected and fully serviced, including four new Bridgestone Potenza tires. Hand cleaned from the bottom to the top, and then gently polished and waxed, the Turbo presented like new again. A new owner purchased the car in 2016 and kept the car until just recently, amassing only 1,369 miles in three and a half years. He traded in this Turbo after Canepa was able to find him a fantastic low mileage and original 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S. This 993 Turbo returned to Canepa just how it had left, in pristine condition.
Each and every collector car that comes to Canepa is put through and extensive and diligent process called the “Canepa Difference.” This includes a major and comprehensive mechanical inspection where all systems are checked and serviced as necessary. They also receive an award-winning concours-level detailing, a thorough cleaning of each and every surface that ensures that every car is a sight to behold. Finishing off with a foam-pad-only polish to enhance the paint finish, each and every car is a perfect example and a personification of Bruce Canepa’s impeccable attention to detail.
This 911 Turbo represents the final iteration of the legendary air-cooled Turbo, and is what many argue is the best generation of the fabled supercar. Impressive power, exciting driving dynamics, and an unbeatable ride that you can enjoy for hours without tiring. Whether it’s kept as a low mileage collectable, or to be driven like the Weissach gods intended, this 993 Turbo is ready.

In 1993 Porsche introduced what is regarded by many as the most beautiful 911 of all: the Type 993. Over the years the 911 had received numerous aerodynamic and safety-inspired add-ons, diluting the purity of the original form; the Type 993's arrival marked a return to basic principles, being recognizably a 911 but one in which all functions had been harmoniously integrated in a truly outstanding example of modern automotive styling. The range offered remained pretty much as before, comprising two- and four-wheel drive models, the legendary Turbo and the Cabriolet convertible, all powered by the latest, 3.6-liter version of Porsche's perennial flat-six engine.
The 993 Turbo, introduced in mid-1995 as a 1996, continued to hold the torch of the most powerful 911 variant while continuing to improve the breed as a whole. Among the new features on the 993 Turbo was an electronically controlled viscous coupling all-wheel drive system—something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959 and a system that greatly improved the performance of the Turbo. Under the engine lid—now topped with a sculpted spoiler tail with downturned edges—resided the 3.6 liter flat six fed by twin KKK K16 turbos, each featuring integrated wastegates and two charge air intercoolers. Combined with bigger brakes, fatter tires, a wide body and stance, specially designed 'Technologie-Rad' hollow spoke cast alloy wheels, the 993 Turbo was one of the fastest cars on the planet. With all four wheels tearing into the pavement, 0-60mph came in a face melting 3.9 seconds, 100mph ticked by in 9.9 seconds, and the forward progression continued until the speedometer had crossed 180mph. Beyond just going fast in a straight line though, the car could pull up to 1.00g on the skid pad and haul to a stop from 60mph in just 111 feet. In reviewing the 993 Turbo in June of 1995, Motor Trend magazine proclaimed, "To beat this Stuttgart screamer into submission requires a force no less wieldy than the million-dollar 627-horsepower V-12 McLaren F1."
So popular was the 993 Turbo that production continued until July 1998—nearly a year after the introduction of the 996 model that replaced the 993.
