Porsche 993 Carrera 3.8
- X51 Factory Performance Upgrade
- Turbo braking system
- Like new feeling
The combination for connoisseurs: 3.8 l factory performance increase, the “short” six-speed gearbox G50/21, turbo brake system and 18″ turbo hollow-spoke wheels, and all that in the elegant, narrow Carrera.
The car was completed in the color combination night blue (L39C) over blue full leather including Raffleder option on July 7th, 1995 and delivered to its first owner on November 19th, 1995 in the Porsche Center Ulm. The core elements of the factory performance increase with a displacement of 3.8 l, which Porsche first introduced in 1995 under the exclusive special request no. “X51” and which distinguishes this car are primarily the pistons, cylinders and camshafts from the 993 Carrera RS, which was available in the 1995 and 1996 model years. The performance was cautiously stated at 285 hp, the use of a sports exhaust system, which our example is also equipped with, was good for another ten hp. The “993 RS sound” due to the camshafts is noticeable for the connoisseur, with which the X51 subtly differs from the series 993. Fun fact: The X51 engine, like the one in this car, has the crankshaft from the 993 Cup, while the RS engine had to make do with the stock crankshaft.
