Iris Blue Metallic with Marble Grey Partial Leather, this example of the classic Carrera model belongs to the air-cooled series. An iconic member of Porsche’s history, these 911s are highly sought after as they represent such an important part of motoring history. Unique and original, nothing on the road will ever be confused with the 911. The sound, driver ergonomics and unique weight balance of a rear-engine car is unlike any other sports car. This car represents the first year of the air cooled 993 generation non variorum engine as well as the increase to a 6-Speed Manual transmission.
Most people understand that the Porsche 993 was the “last air-cooled Porsche,” referring to its engine, which used air and oil to regulate temperatures instead of antifreeze. Purists will quickly point out that “true” Porsches have an air-cooled engine mounted behind their rear axle. By this definition, many consider the Porsche 993 as the pinnacle in the evolutionary process of Porsche’s original 1964 911 design. The five-bezel instrument panel, the floor-mounted pedals, the horizontally opposed six-cylinder motor howling behind its operator, the 993 was a descendant of the original Porsche 911 in every sense.
Porsche 993s with 3.6-liter engines made 272 HP until 1996, when Porsche’s Vario-Ram became a standard offering. Vario-Ram adjusted the length of the air intake ducts according to engine RPMs and the car’s speed. This feature bumped the power up to 285 HP and produced a flatter torque curve. The twin-turbo 3.6-liter engines produced 408 horsepower, with the Turbo S and GT2 993 variants producing an even more powerful 430 and 450 HP, respectively. The 3.8-liter 993s made 300 HP, and could be built-to-order with Vario-Ram from the factory as well, though it was not an official option.
Used Porsche 993s are an excellent investment opportunity! Enthusiast demand for the last-generation air-cooled 911s, coupled with the fact that 993s are terrific performance cars, allows most models to consistently maintain their value, especially when they are well serviced (and documented).
