– Cornering the Porsche 993; it’s like peanut butter to the roof of your mouth.
The Porsche 993 911. A Porsche that is very significant to many and ending an era, but also opened new doors in Stuttgart. It was the very last 911 that used pure air to cool down. Also, it was the last 911 that Ferdinand Porsche himself experienced. 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 didn’t come 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 tachometer, which sits dominantly in the middle of the instrument cluster. Überhaupt is Porsche awfully good at that. Emphasizing the -for an enthusiast- essentials. Driving, experience and emotion. And we can tell you that a 993 2 with a manual gearbox has all of those.
And ours? Yes, just the way you want it! Her Turkis Perlcolor was redone about three years ago, her interior is flawless and she has an extensive history. Before she came to stay with us in the clubhouse, she was completely checked over by Kees Otten in Ankeveen, Porsche specialist. So yes, we also thought about the rational side. Saves a few nights of couch surfing at home. Will we see you soon?
