Introduced to the automotive world in 1995, the Porsche 993 Turbo quickly became an immediate classic. With an air-cooled 402 horsepower twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, sending power through its 959-derived all-wheel drivetrain, these cars quickly became known for their astonishing real-world performance. With the ability to outperform sports cars double the price, the 993 Turbo was an ultimate tour-de-force of performance, technology, and comfort.
This spectacular 1997-year model 993 Turbo was manufactured at Porsche’s Stuttgart factory in October 1996, in the stunning color combination of Arctic Silver metallic paint over a Classic Grey Leather interior. Delivered to its original Californian owner the following month on November 27, 1996, it was ordered with the additional options of an electric sunroof, automatic speed control, and Becker Porsche CD-radio.
After more than six years and 5,565 miles, the Turbo found a new caretaker on March 28, 2003, who over the next thirteen years maintained the car in pristine condition, adding an additional 10,750 miles. During the past four years the Turbo’s most recent owner has entrusted maintenance to McKenna Porsche in Norwalk, California. With just 196 miles added during this time, the 993 currently shows a total of 16,559 on the odometer. In anticipation of sale, a major service was completed on April 29, 2021, by Porsche of Newport Beach, California at a cost of $8,215.40.
Upon arriving at Canepa, the 993 Turbo was meticulously inspected, and treated to the “Canepa Difference” process, ensuring that this iconic Porsche is ready for presentation on any Porsche Club of America, or Concours d’Elegance show lawn. The Arctic Silver paintwork was polished with foam pads to a beautiful sheen that rivals the day it was delivered new, and the interior has been treated to the finest products and cleansing techniques, ensuring all materials show close to new. The underside of the car has received the same conscientious attention to detail, with every surface and component cleaned and prepared for concours show level presentation.
To be sold inclusive of a comprehensive inspection, and complimentary pre-delivery Service including the installation of a new set of Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires by the team of experienced Porsche technicians at Canepa, this 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo will bring endless enjoyment to its new caretaker. With its sophisticated twin-turbocharged power plant paired to the advanced all-wheel-drive system, this last iteration of the air-cooled 911 turbos will never cease to provide driven investment nirvana.
