The one-owner 993 Turbo looks absolutely fantastic inside and out. Like so many Porsches before it, this one wears a Silver paint job on the outside and a sophisticated black leather interior. That Silver paint absolutely shines from nose to tail, really presenting well in any level of light. All the original badging and trim pieces are intact, plus this car rides on the original wheels, which are free of curb rash. Massive red brake calipers and cross-drilled rotors peek through the gaps between the five wheel spokes, signaling this is a serious German machine.
That black interior is all-original as well. The leather seats are soft and feature a nice amount of bolstering. The aluminum accelerator pedal is shaped perfectly for heel-toe driving, proving this car was designed for enthusiasts. There are also two seats in the back, if you need to use them. Everything from the carpeting to the headliner is in solid shape.
What really makes this 993 legendary is the turbocharged 3.6-liter flat-six engine mounted in the rear. It works with a 6-speed manual transmission, creating almost a spiritual connection between car and driver. The seller is ready to provide all service records, so you can be assured everything has been cared for properly. That’s the ideal way to buy this kind of vehicle. Also, the odometer is showing 21,500 miles, and the condition of the car seems to back up that number.
The Porsche 993 ran from the 1995 to 1998 model years, replacing the successful 964 series. Because it’s the last air-cooled Porsche, prices for these cars continue to rise. The Turbo model is especially sought after, thanks to the promise of elevated performance. You can thank Silverstone Motorcars for the opportunity to own such a valuable, amazing machine.
