Feature Listing: 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

Given the significant love shown to the 993 in general, and especially the 993 twin-turbo, it might seem strange that I would have to be brought around on them. Yet, that’s exactly the case. Don’t get me wrong, I need no convincing that these are phenomenal machines and their status as the last of the air-cooled 911s brings with them obvious additional layers of allure. But I was a kid in the ’80s so it is the ’80s 911s and the ’80s 930s that really tug at my heart. In the case of the 930, they aren’t sexy cars; they attract by a seeming brute force. In that regard, the 993 almost seemed too pretty. The all-wheel drive and twin-turbocharging features further served to tame the beast. The wildness seemed…not gone, but tamped down.

If I’m honest, when I see a standard 993 these feelings largely remain. They’re very pretty, but my mind still drifts back to the classic 911 or, with increasing regularity, to the 964. The Turbo is different. I’ve been brought around. The wide rear and massive tail pair well with the 993’s curves to produce something that is indeed pretty, but also clearly not to be trifled with. I kind of don’t know what took me so long to figure this out, but I’m glad to present this low-mileage example in the classic colors of black and tan: a Black Metallic 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo with Cashmere leather interior and just 28K miles on it.

The Sport Classics are one of the best looking OEM wheels Porsche has put on their newer cars; as a throwback they’re a fantastic update of the original, but also look modern and aggressive, pulling the evergreen “911” into the current century. Like all Porsche wheels they’re pricey, but this set comes with centercaps and tires – something often missing from Porsche wheels for sale, as we’ll see. Still too rich or new for your blood? How about this set of OEM BBS-made 911 Carrera wheels?

Thank you.

These are a great looking, simple wheel that is well built by BBS. I really thought these freshened up the 911 design when they debuted and made it look modern but also lighter. With included (and expensive) tires and centercaps, as Porsche wheels go these are a deal. Still a bit too pricey for you, but you’d like something from the same generation? How about these Carrera 4S “Twists”?

Year: 2005-2011
Model: Turbo Twist Hollow Spoke
Diameter: 18″
Width: 8″ front, 11″ rear
Bolt Pattern: 5 x 130

Talk about a stellar deal; with centercaps included these 18″ wheels with light use are only $650. As Porsche wheels go, that’s basically giving them away. These would ideally suit a 996 or 997 widebody, with an aggressive stance and clean look. Were you looking for something a bit older? How about this set of 993-era “Cup” wheels, brand new in box from Porsche:

Year: 1989-1994
Model: Turbo Cup
Diameter: 17″
Width: 7″ front, 9″ rear
Bolt Pattern: 5 x 130

Up for sale is an extremely rare set of factory Porsche OEM Turbo Cup wheels, for a Porsche 911 Turbo ( 965 ) . These are brand new, in the box, never been mounted.

See specs below:

FRONT WHEELS:

Part # 965.362.124.01
Size – 17×7
Offset – 55 mm

REAR WHEELS:

Part # 965.362.128.00
Size – 17×9
Offset – 55mm

While I love the originality of these wheels and this design on the 964s, I have to say I really liked the Speedline-made multi-piece Turbo 3.6 wheels a lot more. Despite this, if you’re in the restoration market for a 965, these might just be the wheels for you. In typical Porsche wheel fashion, there are no tires or centercaps and they’re very expensive. Are you like me and prefer the look of the Speedlines? Have an older 930? How about these Ruf Speedlines then?

The Ruf Speedlines are one of the best period-correct modifications you can do to a 911 or 930, or even a 944 Turbo. They’re not cheap, but boy are they good looking wheels. They’re absolutely one of my favorites and I like the inclusion of both tires and centercaps here, though I’d prefer “Ruf” caps to make it correct. Still not your cup of tea but in the right time period? How about some original Fuchs?

The original, and still the classic, loved design. Pricey, but good taste costs, right? I just wish for the asking price they would include the center caps.

Which are your favorite, and what would you like to see?
