In the 1994 model year, the model series of the Porsche 964 was replaced by the 993 model series. This was a significant advance, not only in technical but also in visual terms. For many enthusiasts, the Porsche 993 is one of the most beautiful Porsche 911 ever built. The front wings of the Porsche 993 Carrera became wider and flatter. Because of the shorter trunk lid, the black rubber lip that forms the seam between the body and front bumpers of the G-model and the 964 has been omitted. The rear fenders were also widened and ran with the higher positioned taillights in a straight line to the rear. The Porsche 993 was initially available as a coupe and convertible with rear-wheel drive. For the 1995 model year followed by the four-wheel drive versions with the Carrera 4 and the 911 Turbo. In the model years 1996/97 the Carrera 4S and the Carrera S complemented the model range. The 1996 produced 993 Targa model had a large electrically adjustable sunroof made of tinted laminated glass instead of the removable top as in the predecessor of the 964th On the usual roll bar could be waived from then on. The Carrera and Targa models were powered by a new 3.6-liter engine, which developed from MY 1996 initially 272 hp and later 285 hp.
