1998 Porsche Exclusive PTS Vesuvius 993 Turbo | 2.3M HKD (Price Update)



The 993 Turbo, introduced in mid-1995, retained a tight hold on the torch of the most powerful 911 variant whilst continuing the general developments and improvements to the breed as a whole. Amongst the new features, 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 car's usability.


Under the engine lid, now topped with a sculpted spoiler tail with downturned edges, resided the 3.6-litre, flat-six fed by twin K16 turbos. Combined with bigger brakes, fatter tires, a wide body and a lower stance, the 993 Turbo had evolved into 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 5.7 seconds.


This is a great opportunity to acquire a car that is still considered blisteringly fast some two decades after its production ceased, yet is as docile and friendly as any 911 from the era. It's equally at home in the lanes of our tight roads on Island South or blasting down the freeway, but either way, as a super example of the last of the air-cooled Turbos, it will become increasingly sought after as the years go by.

SERVICE HISTORY


Passed and Completed Porsche 111 Point Inspection


**Service records available upon request

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:


In 1993, Porsche introduced what is regarded by many as the most beautiful 911 of all—the Type 993. Over the years the 911 had received numerous aerodynamic and safety-inspired add-ons, diluting the purity of the original form. The Type 993's arrival marked a return to basic principles, being recognizable a 911, but one in which all functions had been harmoniously integrated in a truly outstanding example of modern automotive styling. The 993-range offering was comprised of the familiar two- and four-wheel drive models, a Cabriolet convertible, the Turbo, but also included the new range topping 1997 993 Turbo S. All were powered by the latest, 3.6-liter version of Porsche's perennial flat-six engine.

Among the new features on the 993 Turbo was an electronically controlled viscous coupling all-wheel drive system—something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959—the system greatly improved the performance of the Turbo. Under the engine lid—now topped with a sculpted spoiler tail with downturned edges—resided the 3.6-liter flat six fed by twin KKK K16 turbos, each featuring integrated wastegates and two charge air intercoolers. Combined with bigger brakes, fatter tires, a wide body and stance, and specially designed "Technologie-Rad" cast alloy wheels, the 993 Turbo was one of the fastest cars on the planet.

Thanks to its status as the final air cooled 911, popularity of the 993 has steadily increased as the years go by.
