For the 993 turbo, the developers at Porsche once again clearly followed and installed for the first time a bi-turbo and four-wheel drive. The performance increased to huge 408 hp (300kw), which put the 993 turbo pretty much in the shade, what was traveling on German highways back then. Competitors such as the Ferrari F355, the Mercedes-Benz SL60 AMG and the BMW 850 CSI each had almost 30 hp less.
The sprint from 0 to 100 km / h completed the 993 turbo, thanks to the now introduced all-wheel drive, in an impressive 4.5 seconds. The top speed was 290 km / h.
Visually, the 993 turbo was very successful. The beautiful turbo rims with hollow spokes, the large fixed rear wing, the wider body (as in the 4S), the red brake calipers and the white and red turn signals - everything looked harmonious and sporty. For us, one of the most beautiful Porsche 911s of all time.
This particular copy was delivered 1996 in Japan new. The first owner chose a very nice color combination and ordered the car in "firnweiss" with an interior in "Boxsterred". As Japanese delivery, the car basically has the same technical specification as a German delivery, in contrast to a US vehicle for example.
The odometer reading is just over 38,000 km. During our review, we noticed that the speedometer has already been opened once. We have then read out the operating hours counter of the airbag steering wheel and its value matches the specified mileage. If we divide the mileage by the operating hours, we come to an average speed of 32 km / h. Normal for use in Japan, where the heavy traffic and strict speed limits result in a lower cut.
The car was also regularly maintained. As usual in Japan, every service was documented by a service sticker in the engine compartment and / or an entry in the uniform service folder. There are a total of 16 maintenance stickers and about 12 maintenance entries in the folder evenly distributed throughout the time in Japan. In addition, there are other invoices and receipts on each of which mileage is noted. The very good overall care condition corresponds to the low mileage.
Since 2014, the car is in last hand with a German collector. The car has not yet been approved in Germany and thus the buyer would be the first registered holder in Germany. The customs clearance is of course already done and occupied. After a TÜV inspection, the car can be approved and we are of course happy to assist you in this process, so they can accept the car approved.
The condition is, the low mileage and the good care of the previous owner accordingly, very good. The interior is well maintained and in excellent condition. Body painting on metal parts is 98% in the first coat and ranges from 65my to 100my. Only at a small point on the roof we measured a higher paint layer thickness of 219my, so we assume that here was once a small spot repainted. The two PU skins have been repainted before. At the front, the original spoiler lip of the turbo S was retrofitted. As you can see in the photos, this one had two scratches that have since been painted and are no longer visible. Overall, the paint is in a very good and clean condition.
Please note that this vehicle sales tax is identifiable, which makes it particularly interesting for the export or purchase by a company. Leasing is also an interesting option in this regard and we would be pleased to ask you for an offer.
A very special specimen in a very rare and attractive color combination and a very good condition.
