1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

It’s an all-turbo day for me, and I think this also makes for three straight 911 Turbos I will have featured. We’ve actually been looking at quite a few air-cooled Turbos lately, though a significant portion of those examples have come from the 930. Much of that probably has to do with what attracts my attention most since there are always examples of the 993 and, to a lesser extent, the 964 to choose from, yet the 930 finds its way onto our pages most frequently. Every model deserves its due so for this one we will move to the end of the air-cooled line to look at a very vibrant 993TT. While the 930 captures attention through a nature of almost pure aggression, the 993 elicits excitement through the shapeliness of its curves and the overall beauty of its design. Even the whale tail is more subdued and molded into the 993’s lines such that it seems a natural extension of the rear. Along with those refined lines the 993 also brought with it significant refinements to driveability that go beyond the basic evolutionary steps the 911 Turbo had previously passed through. With twin turbocharging and all-wheel drive helping to both deliver and make use of the 993 Turbo’s prodigious rear-engine power, gone were some of the 930’s more diabolical handling traits. The 911 Turbo had long served as Porsche’s showcase of its ability to produce performance machines that came with few compromises to luxury and refinement and the 993 brought the air-cooled line to its apex.

I find that I can linger over a Speed Yellow 993 seemingly forever and the example here is no different. Given its very low mileage – it sits with 18,408 miles – we would expect it to present well and this one does not disappoint. It appears to be completely original and with a good bit of documentation. Naturally, with any example positioned near the top of the market there is going to be some homework to be done and I’ll admit that I’m surprised this one sits unbid upon with the starting bid set at $175K. The nearly $200K asking price is another matter, and perhaps that is discouraging buyers from even bidding, but we’ve seen examples sell north of $200K so it isn’t an outlandish number. Regardless, I’ll have my eye on this one and we’ll see if it manages to attract the requisite attention.
