The Porsche 993 911 2S. A Porsche that is very significant to many and closed things off, but also opened new doors in Stuttgart. It was the very last 911 that used only air to cool down. It was also the last 911 to be driven by Ferdinand Porsche himself.
Four days after the last 993 was born in Stuttgart, Ferdinand breathed his last (air-cooled) breath. R.I.P. hero!
Compared to its predecessor (and no, this was not from the introduction leaflet, this time it really was!) the 993 was revolutionary. Its entire suspension had been sharpened and Porsche introduced the VarioRam system. Something with even more air on revs, for a smooth transition towards the red area of your rev counter, which sits dominantly in the middle of the instrument cluster. Porsche is very good at this. Emphasising the - for an enthusiast - essentials. Driving, experience and emotion. And we can tell you that a manual transmission 993 2S has all the right ingredients.
And ours? Yes, like you want it! German delivered and from the second owner (a Dutchman who has owned the car for almost 20 years), original 18" inch Turbo hollow spoke wheels, manual gearbox, M030 sports suspension, black RAF leather interior with electrically operated seats and a sunroof! History? Complete. Do we need to say more?
- Cornering the Porsche 993 2S; it's like peanut butter to the roof of your mouth. -
