Description

"The 993 Turbo, introduced in mid 1995, retained a tight hold on the torch of the most powerful 911 variant whilst continuing the general development and improvements to the breed as a whole. Amongst the new features on the Turbo was an electronically controlled, viscous coupling, all-wheel-drive system. Something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959 and a system that greatly improved the driveability of the car. Under the engine cover, now topped with a sculpted spoiler tail with downturned edges, lived the 3.6 litre, flat-six force-fed by twin K16 turbos. Combined with bigger brakes, fatter tires, a wide body and lower stance, the 993 Turbo was one of the fastest cars on the planet. With all four wheels helping to evenly distribute great handfuls of power, 0-60mph was dispatched in a staggering 3.7 seconds, 100mph whistled by in a further 5.7 seconds and the linear forward thrust continued until the speedometer needle had said goodbye to 180mph and you were on conversational terms with the horizon.
We are excited to present a breathtaking example of the iconic Porsche 993 Turbo, offering up 408bhp from the epic twin-turbo Mezger engine. Having had only four owners from new, this C16 UK supplied Turbo has lead a cherished life and has one of the best history files you could wish for. Presented in Polar Silver with black leather interior and with 18 Turbo Hollow Spoke alloys, this collectable example is specified with power adjustable hard back sports seats, sunroof, top tint windscreen, Xenons, a third brake light high mount and rear wiper.
A huge paper file containing an abundance of invoices and previous MoT test certificates detailing the thousands spent on cherishing this car by its previous keepers. The car is now on its second service book with an incredible 24 stamps, 13 of which are official Porsche Centre stamps and many from Addspeed with the most recent from Northway Porsche in December 2018.
It is offered with two keys, the original book packs, tools and manuals and will be supplied with a 12 month MoT test certificate. Details of the impressive service history can be found here;
