The 911’s horizontally-opposed 6-cylinder engine is located at the rear, like that of a racing car. Putting the weight of the engine on the driven wheels provides increased traction. The 911 is built to withstand extremes of stress which are rarely encountered on public roads. Many of its components were originally developed for the racetrack.
For the 993 to achieve maximum performance and a generous spread of torque, cylinder charging was further optimised by adding variable length inlet tracts to the two-stage tuned intake system. This was known as Varioram, which boosted torque at low and medium engine speeds, making torque more progressive, while at the same time ensuring maximum performance at peak revs. The engine produces 285 HP at 6,100 rpm, maximum torque is 340 Nm at 5,250 rpm. 0-62 mph takes just 5.3 seconds.
The 993 has a hydraulic dual circuit braking system with 4-piston aluminium fixed calipers. All brakes are cross-drilled, ensuring optimal braking even in wet conditions.
This 993 Carrera Cabriolet was supplied new by Chapelgate Porsche, Ferndown, in April 1996, and has an excellent service history with Official Porsche Centres and Porsche marque specialists. It also has an excellent history file, with past invoices and MOTs. Perfect to drive and easy to enjoy, this low mileage vehicle is offered freshly serviced, and a 12-month comprehensive warranty policy is included.
