The iconic air-cooled Porsche 993 was introduced in 1994 as a replacement for the outgoing 964 model and was produced up until 1998. Regarded by many as the finest generation of 911, the 993 was the last to use the air cooled flat six engine. The car was the most sweepingly changed 911 ever at the time. Gone were the nearly upright headlights that had accompanied the 911 for over thirty years. They were replaced with 959-like items in favour of better aerodynamics. The new style bumper and front wings gave the 993 a fresh look, without losing the identity of the 911.
The 911 C2S has the wide Turbo body, combined with the Carrera 2 engine (3.6 litre Varioram 285 HP) and drivetrain (2 wheel-drive). Especially for the 911S a unique split-type rear spoiler was developed. The wide body is widely acclaimed for its rear looks. It creates more aerodynamic drag, leading to slightly lower top speeds compared to the narrower siblings, but the wider tires result in excellent roadholding for the wide body 993 model. The wide bodies, and in particular the Carrera 2S, are the most valuable, with around 3700 produced cars. The wide-body 993 models are generally considered the best looking 993 variant.
