Description

All 345 examples of the 993 Turbo S were built by Porsche’s Exclusive Department and the specification included a number of unique features when compared to other 911s of the period. The car sported yellow brake callipers, a unique, sculpted rear spoiler, polished five-spoke Turbo S wheels, a modified front spoiler, air intakes in the rear wings, and four exhaust pipes at the rear. Under the skin, the Turbo S luxuriated in carbon fibre trim, contrasting with the softest of leathers and provided the type of luxury that customers had come to know and love from Porsche’s exclusive models. The iconic flat-six was built to 3.6 litres and equipped with twin turbos, giving a thumping 450bhp and 590NM of torque. No stone was un-turned with regard to spec from the front to back, Porsche opting to transfer the power by means of a 6-speed manual gearbox and onto to specifically modified suspension and huge cross-drilled brakes.

The 993 Turbo S is truly the final chapter in the amazing and iconic air-cooled 911 era.
