Model History

In 1994 the Porsche 964 was replaced by the new line of 993's. The 993 offered not only big technical improvement, but also visually. It had much more flared wheelarches and a smoother front and rear bumper design, an enlarged retractable rear wing and teardrop mirrors. Originally the 993 was available in a coupe and cabriolet version. In 1995 the Carrera S, 4, 4S and Turbo followed. The following year saw the introduction of the Targo model.
The 993 marked the end of an era for Porsche, since it was the latest air cooled model they ever produced. The 993 generation of the 911 is often referred to as the best and most desirable of the 911 series, not only because of its beauty, but also because its performance is very good, even by modern standards, and the 993 was the last complete 'modern classic'. The 993 is elegance and muscle all in one package.
The Carrera S and 4S shared the Turbo model's body shell, but housed the naturally aspirated Carrera engine in the rear. Both S models had slightly lowered suspension compared to standard Carrera models. The all wheel drive 4S is slightly heavier due to the 4 wheel drive system. Although a Carrera S Cabriolet was never officially offered by the factory, a small number (believed to be 5) were special ordered through the Porsche Exclusive department in 1997 and sold as 1998 models by Beverly Hills Porsche in California. The wide body is widely acclaimed for its rear looks. It creates more aerodynamic drag, leading to slightly lower top speeds compared to the narrower siblings (about 5 km/h), but the wider tires result in excellent roadholding for the wide body 993 model. The widebodies, and in particular the Carrera 2S, are the most valuable, with around 3700 produced cars. The widebody 993 models are generally considered the best looking 993 variant.
The 993 was replaced by the Porsche 996. This represented a dramatic change for Porsche. As many enthusiasts agree, the 993 is one of the sweetest spots in the 911's half-century of existence.
