The 993 Turbo, introduced in 1996, continued to hold the torch of the most powerful 911 variant while improving 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 significantly improved twin-turbo system. Under what has become the “classic” Turbo tail resides the 3.6 liter flat-six fed by twin KKK K16 turbos, each featuring integrated wastegates and two air-to-air intercoolers.
Combined with larger brakes, low-profile tires, a wide-body, and lowered stance, and specially designed 'Technologie-Rad' cast alloy wheels with hollow spokes—the 993 Turbo was one of the fastest cars on the planet. With all four wheels gripping the pavement, 0-60mph came in a staggering 3.7 seconds, 100mph ticked by in 5.7 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."
The 993 Turbo also features cruise control, an electric sunroof, a remote Becker Grand Prix Radio, and 6-Disc CD changer. This particular radio option was one of the most expensive sound system options on the 993, as it delivers modern sound quality while featuring a classic look.
With only 8,666 miles in the span of 26 years, this 1-owner Turbo has been well taken care of its entire life with the majority of its time being garaged, besides the few instances where the owner decided to take it out on a cruise. It was first purchased on August 15th, 1996 by a noted collector in Chicago and was registered in Illinois where it stayed for the duration of his ownership. Throughout ownership, the car was always cared for and regularly scheduled the vehicle to be checked. He took precautionary steps and had the vehicle serviced several times over the years to ensure the car was always in perfect running condition. In December 2020 he had a major service performed replacing the entire clutch mechanism, along with the shift rod seals, and hydraulic brake fluid.
Upon arriving at Canepa, every vehicle undergoes the "Canepa Difference" process which includes a complete mechanical inspection and personal road test by Bruce Canepa. All aspects of the car are looked over to ensure it is in pristine mechanical condition. After approval on the final test drive by Bruce, it is finished off with a Concours quality detail. A full exterior, interior, and underside cleaning were performed leaving no area untouched. To finish off, the car was foam pad polished to give it a factory-like shine.
Porsche’s 993 Turbo generation saw itself become the most refined air-cooled sports car Porsche had ever produced. With its superior build quality, stupendous performance, and dynamic driving experience, it was the perfect sports car for every occasion. Comfortable for daily driving and enough performance to leave others in the dust, this duality of the 911 Turbo is what earned its status as one of the best sports cars, bar none.
