About the 993:
The Porsche 993 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911
model manufactured and sold between model years 1995-1998 replacing
the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled 911
The 993 was much improved over, and quite different from its
predecessor. According to Porsche, every part of the car was
designed from the ground up, including the engine and only 20% of
its parts were carried over from the previous generation.
Porsche refers to the 993 as "a significant advance, not just from
a technical, but also a visual perspective." Porsche's engineers
devised a new light-alloy subframe with coil and wishbone
suspension (an all new multi-link system), putting behind the
previous lift-off oversteer and making significant progress with
the engine and handling, creating a more civilized car overall and
providing an improved driving experience. The 993 was also the
first 911 to receive a six speed transmission.
The external design of the Porsche 993, penned by English designer
Tony Hatter, retained the basic body shell architecture of the 964
and other earlier 911 models, but with revised exterior panels,
with much more flared wheel arches, a smoother front and rear
bumper design, an enlarged retractable rear wing and teardrop
The 993 Turbo coupe was introduced in 1995. It featured a new
twin-turbocharged engine displacing 3.6 liters and generating a
maximum power output of 402 HP. Air-to-air intercoolers, electronic
engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified
engine internals completed the new engine.
The 993 Turbo was the first 911 Turbo with all wheel drive, taken
from the 959 flagship model. The electronic engine management
helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to its
predecessors. In connection with two catalytic converters and an
on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, the 993
Turbo was the cleanest sports car of its time. The Turbo's bodywork
differs from the Carrera by widened rear wheel arches
(approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper moldings,
and a fixed "whale tail" rear wing housing the intercoolers. New
18" alloy wheels with hollow spokes were standard.
The 993 Turbo was one of the first production cars in the world to
have OBDII diagnostics system. The car also had brakes that were
larger than those on the base Carrera model.
Throughout the production run of the Turbo, there were two distinct
differences: The 1997 and 1998 cars had the following differences
from the 1996 cars:
- Stronger transmission input shafts (a known weakness due to the
combination of immense power and AWD system).
- An ECU that was able to be flashed and modified (the 1996 model's
ECU was not modifiable).
- With the addition of a Porsche child seat, the passenger airbag
was cut off.
- Motion sensors for the alarm that were integrated into the map
light above the rear view mirror.
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 of its great performance, even by modern
standards. The 993 is quoted as "the last complete 'modern
classic'"; "the 993 was and forever will be that last fresh breath
of air that Porsche gave the world; elegance and muscle all in one
package." The book "Porsche 993 - Essential Companion" refers to
the 993 as the "King of Porsche," and it is generally acknowledged
as "The purists' Holy Grail."
In its 12 April 2017 article entitled "The Porsche 993 Actually
Lives up to the Hype," Road & Track writes that the 993 is
"something truly special," with "a combination of old-school feel
and modern usability that isn't found in many other cars," with
"great steering, great brakes, and a wonderfully composed package."
It also states that "The 993 is also beautifully built - it's a
relic from the time when Porsche didn't cut corners anywhere."
