1997 Porsche 993 Turbo “RS”

If the Speed Yellow C2S featured yesterday wasn’t attention-grabbing enough, or you just find a standard Carrera to be a bit slow, then perhaps this car will suit your needs. This 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo is somewhat of a mutt, though I mean that in the most positive sense. The front spoiler and rear wing were grabbed from the GT2 and surround a tuned 993 Turbo S engine. The Turbo S was only produced during the final production year of the 993 and housed a 3.6 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six delivering 424 hp to all four wheels. These were then combined with a variety of other components from the Porsche parts bin and from the respective tuners to produce a car capable of 530hp. The total package is pretty stunning and sure to be one of the better looking and better performing tuned Porsches available.

Obviously, a car such as this one will not be cheap, but like many tuner Porsches the cost here is quite a bit less than what it would cost to build this car, assuming you could even come across a 993 Turbo S at a lower cost. The 993 GT2 is one the best looking cars Porsche ever made. It’s by no means subtle and in Riviera Blue you’re even less likely to escape notice so this is clearly not a car for everyone. And while this car is likely a bit heavier than a GT2 it is still sure to provide its owners with a similar level of lively performance. Overall, this is a pretty unique car and something we’re surely not going to come across everyday.

  1. stunning!.now Sloan is known for having some really well cared for, low mileage, sought after P-Cars…and yes they are also known for being a bit on the high side price wise…
    but this car at $150k?….I am almost ashamed to say that I would take this over the “Holy Grail” 911 Turbo 3.6.

  2. A nice 993 turbo is an $80k car, add Riviera blue and 20k miles and I would say this is easily a $125k car, maybe even $150k to someone who really wants Riviera blue. Unfortunately because of the rare color and low miles I think the mods actually devalue the car somewhat. I assume it has been tracked which devalues it more. The Andial engine upgrade is very desirable but If it were me I would remove the cheesy side graphics (WTF is a turbo RS??), spoilers and seats and return the car to stock appearance. These mods would be more attractive on a higher mileage and “normal” color track/street turbo, and could be further enhanced with GT2 flares.
