Full Service History
The 993 model (1994-1998) is the fourth generation and last incarnation of the iconic flat-six, air-cooled Porsches that defined Ferdinand ‘Butzi’s’ 911 since its introduction in 1963. The 993’s debut in 1993 for the 1994 model year replaced the 964 which had famously reengineered the original 911 chassis, introduced the first instalment of the Tiptronic transmission and all-wheel drive as options. The air-cooled engine made for a very lightweight, nimble car, with a unique sound that is idiosyncratic to the 911 and beloved by Porsche enthusiasts. With the 993’s discontinuation in 1998, the model marks the end of the classic 911 era before Porsche introduced water-cooled engines in the 996.
The 993 featured significant technical and styling changes that resulted in a special combination of modern performance and a classic aesthetic. The new Porsche shared just 20% of its parts with the 964. A new multi-link rear suspension was derived from the 989, a four-door sedan that never reached production. The light-alloy subframe with coil and wishbone suspension corrected oversteer, and when combined with engine enhancements, vastly improved handling and driving experience. The system was also used in the 993’s successor, where it provided the 996 with greater stability. It was the first 911 to receive a six-speed manual transmission as standard and introduce the new Tiptronic S.
The classic 911 aesthetic was famously largely unchanged from its introduction until 1997. The 1994 Porsche 993 exterior was created by British designer Tony Hatter, who retained the basic 964 architecture with that of earlier 911s, but accentuated the wheel arches and retractable rear wing, smoothed the front and rear bumpers, and revised the teardrop mirrors.
Built at Zuffenhausen, the 993 was available in a variety of bodystyles, including fastback coupe, convertible, targa and speedster. Drivetrains and equipment also varied, where internal engine upgrades increased power. The base 993 model was the race-derived ‘Carrera,’ which was available in rear and all-wheel drive variants. Its naturally aspirated 3.6L M64 engine was developed from the 964, combining with the new dual-flow exhaust system. The use of the name Carrera commemorates the marque’s racing success in the 1954 Carrera Panamericana race and denotes only the most high-performance Porsches.
Our 1995 Porsche 911 (993) C2 Carrera Coupe debuted in 1994 for the 1995 model year, as the stiffest yet lightest of the 993 models, with a ground clearance of 110mm, 2272mm wheelbase, and curb weight of 1370kg. The sports car showcases Porsche’s classic racing colour, Polar Silver, alongside a timeless marble grey leather interior that shows little signs of wear. The coupe retains the classic Porsche design and unembellished silhouette. It is equipped with the state-of-the-art 4-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission, alongside other factory options and modern conveniences such as climate control, sunroof, Becker Porsche CD changer, electric mirrors, and electric windows. Featuring classic Porsche ergonomics, this 911 provides the driver with a different experience and shines in performance. With full-service history and its value appreciating, the 993 presents a special opportunity to invest in a classic work of automotive art with modern performance.
