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.
