Description

Competition car - Exclusive " competition client " version designed by Porsche - Continuous history Sold by Porsche to participate in the Porsche-Pirelli Supercup Series and the National Carrera Cups, this 993 Cup still has its "ONS-Wagenpass", technical passport issued by the Oberste Nationale Sportkommission, the equivalent of the French FFSA. The successive owners are listed on this precious document, along with details of MOTs and the competitions it has taken part in. It raced between 1995 and 2001 at Zolder, Hockenheim, Spa, Zandvoort, Dijon and Nurburgring. Having started its career in Germany, this Porsche Cup was acquired by a French team in 2005, and then by a collector in 2008 who had the car maintained by the Moderne Garage in Geneva. The 3.8-litre Porsche Cup had numerous factory modifications. Its 315 bhp 3.8-litre engine enabled the car to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, with a top speed of 280 km/h. The suspension was modified to improve stability and the brakes had 4-piston aluminium calipers. The improved aerodynamics featured the addition of a large rear spoiler, and the car was fitted with a roll-cage. To keep the weight down to 1,120 kg, the side and rear windows were plastic, and it was without soundproofing, heating, power steering and handbrake. This Porsche 993, the last 'true' Porsche (being the last air-cooled Porsche), is presented in its Cup version here, formidably effective on the track and built exclusively for competition. It will offer its new owner the pure thrill of a racing machine.
