The 993 model is famously the last of the air-cooled 911s and was redesigned from the ground up, only borrowing 20% of its parts from the previous generation. Significant technical advances, including a new light-alloy subframe with a coil and wishbone suspension, an all new engine and newly standard 6 speed transmission, made significant progress in creating a more civilized car and a greatly improved driving experience.
Designed by Tony Hatter, the 993 retained the classic 911 shape but featured updated exterior panels, significantly flared wheel arches, and a smoother front and rear bumper design. The aggressive stance of the wide-style body accommodated the new multi-link rear suspension which gave the car better stability. Newly improved handling made the car more planted and helped to reduce oversteer in cornering as well as improving ride quality and reducing interior noise. The acclaimed rear design sacrificed top speeds for better handling making it the perfect weekend partner to tackle the narrow, winding country roads. Simply put, the new design and technical improvements meant the 993 generation Porsche hit the sweet spot between usability and fun.
The 993 generation of the 911 is often referred to as the best and most desirable of the 911 series, not only because of its beauty, but also because its performance is very good, even by modern standards, and the 993 was the last complete 'modern classic'. The 993 is elegance and muscle all in one package.

BACKGROUND & DESCRIPTIONS
An instant classic, the 993 generation of the Porsche 911 is now highly sought after. As the last of the air-cooled 911s, they are the most developed of the original formula that first appeared in 1963. The layout of the instruments, the sheetmetal of the door, and the entire greenhouse is fundamentally unchanged from the original 911, and these cars have a feeling of solidity and craftsmanship that was not only missing from the 996 generation that replaced the 993, but is missing from almost every car made in the last 20 years.
Yet despite this old-world craftsmanship and the occasional sign that the fundamental architecture dates back to the 1960s, the 993 is impressively modern, even 25 years after its introduction. The sophisticated multilink rear suspension and massive rear tires make the rear placement of the engine a non-issue, while the twin plug 3.6 liter flat-6 is a torquey high-performance unit that is both tractable and full of character. The brakes, always a Porsche strong suit, are superb, and the gearbox is Porsche's robust 6-speed G50 unit. Sophisticated and high performing but also capturing the essence of the original 911, the 993 is the best of both worlds. 993s are true classics that can be driven and enjoyed daily in modern traffic.
The 993 was available in a variety of forms, with naturally-aspirated and turbocharged engines, rear and four wheel drive, tiptronic or manual transmissions, wide and narrow bodies, and in open and closed forms.
