To purists, the 993 marked the end of the original 911 sports car lineage. In terms of old-school charm, the 993 delivers in spades. Air cooling helps its flat-six engine sound distinctive and retro (and can be enjoyed to an even greater degree in a Cabriolet model).
The 993-series was introduced in September 1993 and was a quantifiable improvement in terms of handling, ride quality and refinement. The newcomer featured a monocoque bodyshell that was some twenty percent stiffer than that of the outgoing 964 series plus more planted multi-link rear suspension.
Further benefiting from power-assisted rack and pinion steering and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, the 993 was powered by a reworked 3.6 litre flat-six engine allied to six-speed manual or semi-automatic Tiptronic transmission.
With some 272bhp and 243lbft of torque on tap, it was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds and 167mph. Debuting in March 1994, the Cabriolet version boasted a specially reinforced windscreen and snug electrically-operated canvas hood. Updated alongside its coupe and targa siblings, the soft-top gained electrical operation for the 1996-model year (August 1995 onwards). Developing an extra 13bhp and 8lbft of torque thanks to its improved volumetric efficiency, the revised unit gave a small but welcome boost to performance. For many the last 'true' 911, the 993 made way for the water-cooled 996 in 1998.
This fantastic Porsche 993 C2 Cab looks great and drives superbly. 35,300 miles. With an extensive service history (just serviced) – available for immediate delivery.
