The vehicle in detail

The 993-generation 911 Turbo is widely considered the best of all worlds; classic 911 styling combined with Porsche’s superb turbocharged performance and legendary reliability. The “M64/60” engine, new to the 993 series, was a 3.6-liter alloy-cased, dry-sump design with two valves per cylinder. Compression was set at 8:1 to safely accommodate the boost provided by a pair of K16 turbochargers, the first such application of this layout since the iconic Porsche 959. These were partnered with full-width air-to-air intercoolers and wastegates located below the fixed rear spoiler. The result was mind-bending performance, with 400 horsepower on tap and a claimed 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds. As Porsche’s final air-cooled driving machine, the 993-generation 911 Turbo is, and will likely always be, one of the most highly sought after members of the 911 family.

Finished in the thrilling hue of Arena Red Metallic and complemented by a Cashmere Beige/Black full leather interior, not only does this all-wheel-drive Porsche Turbo a pleasure to behold, but it offers supercar over-the-road performance. Delivered with an optional six-disc CD changer and “X-Code” Aluminum/Chrome accents (X71- Aluminum Painted Instrument Dials with Brushed Chrome Inner Rings, X70 – Door Entrance Panels in Stainless Steel with Porsche Insignia, X54 – Oval Stainless Steel Exhaust Pipes), this example retains a clean CARFAX Vehicle History Report confirming its remarkable 191,378 miles shown at cataloging to be original. Acquired by the current owner circa 2000 showing fewer than 8,000 miles, they have cherished and diligently maintained the Turbo for over two decades, with the car’s original warranty book documenting frequent visits to Auto Strasse Corp. (formerly Porsche Strasse) of Costa Mesa, California. Invoices on file also document a major engine-out service/reseal performed by Newport Auto Center of Costa Mesa (a certified Porsche dealership) in 2015 at 188,669 miles, costing a total of $12,651.09.

Today, the paintwork presents beautifully thanks to a professional repaint in its factory-original shade of Arena Red Metallic by Jerry Marquis of Costa Mesa – receipts for which are also on file. Inside, the front seats have been renewed in their original Cashmere-colored hides, and an aftermarket Continental head unit has been installed (the original CR-210 radio and CDC-3 CD Disc changer are included in the sale).

When new, the 911 Turbo was lauded by critics as being, as one author claimed, “The last complete modern classic.” Offered from over two decades of enthusiast ownership, this 911 Turbo is supplied with its space-saver spare, tire inflator, window sticker, and owner’s manuals. It would make a great addition to any collection of timeless Porsches, especially one with an emphasis on highly usable examples primed for guilt-free enjoyment.
