1997 Porsche 911 993 Turbo Coupe

For many Porsche enthusiasts the 993 version of the 911 represents the pinnacle of the 911's evolution in terms of design, air-cooled power-train, driver involvement and overall desirability. Today therefore, it has become one of the most sought-after of all of the 911 variants.


In 1993, Porsche launched the 993 as the replacement to the 964 which was long overdue a refresh. The new Tony Hatter design was a complete success in preserving elements of the classic 911 silhouette whilst giving the car an appealing modern look that even today makes the pulse quicken.

The 993 Turbo Coupe was released in 1995 and featured an updated and re-worked version of the air-cooled 3.6 litre flat-six engine which produced 402 hp assisted by twin turbochargers, air-to-air intercoolers, an electronic engine management system, six-speed manual gearbox plus all wheel drive fitted as standard to the car.

A number of updates and modifications were introduced for 1997 onward models including strengthened transmission drive-shafts and an ECU that could be modified to improve power output.

The right hand drive 911 993 Turbo Coupe that we have on sale here was registered in January 1997, UK-supplied (C16) by Porsche Centre Leeds and is finished in Polar Silver with a Marble Grey leather interior including red seat belts. The car has has had five recorded keepers since new.


The odometer is showing 44,000 miles and there is a history file which shows servicing by both Porsche and Specialist dealers plus every single MOT since the year 2000. The provenance certainly backs up the excellent condition of the car both internally and externally. This is a matching numbers car and the original under-bonnet factory-build is also present and correct.

An added bonus with this example is that a 430 hp power upgrade was carried out by Porsche Colchester in May 1999. There is a letter from the dealer confirming that this enhancement was done by them.
