1997 - Porsche 911 type 993 Turbo X50 coupe French registration Chassis n°WPOZZ99ZWS370137 - Ultimate evolution of the air-cooled 911, inspired by the 959 - Factory X50 option bringing the power to 430 hp - Vehicle delivered new in Switzerland, arrived in France in 2009 - Superb configuration, nice options and excellent condition - Just over 115000 original km with consequent history file - Regularly stamped logbook, manuals and accessories The Porsche 993, fourth generation of the iconic 911, was presented to the press in August 1993 and unveiled to the public one month later at the 1993 Frankfurt Motor Show. The last evolution of the 911 with the boxer engine in its original configuration, i.e. with air cooling, the model embodies for many porschists the last "real" 911. However, despite an undeniable family resemblance with the previous generations, the car, which is more than 80% new, did not meet with a very warm welcome from the public. It is always difficult to reinterpret a myth. By strongly modernizing the timeless line of the 911, in a softened and smoother style, the design of the 993 probably broke too much the original harmony of the 911, dear to the fans of the "Frog" of Stuttgart. But it is actually the aerodynamics that dictated the choice to polish the 911 type 993 like a pebble, in order to lower the Cx as much as possible, for a better penetration in the air, as it had been experimented on its big sister, the 959 supercar. The front end has been flattened and the rear considerably widened, in a design all in roundness, finally very successful and which proves to have aged particularly well. At the time, the success of this new generation was crucial for the brand. Also, the 993 is distinguished by a high number of different versions to seduce the greatest number. It was in this context that the Turbo version of the 993 was launched at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show, less than two years after the "basic" model, as the most powerful version in the range. It was powered by the turbocharged six-cylinder engine of the 964 3.6L, to which some modifications were made, such as a KKK twin turbocharger. The developed power is thus 408 horsepower and the output of 113 hp/L and 150 Nm/L of torque! The transmission is provided by a mechanical gearbox with 6 gears and permanent 4-wheel drive, making the 993 a formidable and homogeneous sports car, with a top speed of 290 km/h. It is then the fastest 911 in history. The interior ambience is traditional with a dashboard and a center console characteristic of the 911. The finish is of excellent quality and the standard equipment, in particular with the Litronic headlights making the lighting of the 911 much more efficient than before, very complete. This equipment is also customizable at will, through a long list of options, making each car special. Very elitist, the 993 Turbo has been produced in only 5978 units, which makes it a rare Porsche as much as appreciated and sought after. The model presented is a 993 Turbo, factory X50 option, passed through the Porsche Exclusive department (codes 09981 and 09991), whose power thanks to this package has been increased to 430 hp for performances even closer to a 959 supercar. The car was delivered new in Switzerland by the AMAG Porsche dealer in Bern on November 7, 1997. The car is painted in "Arctic Grey" metallic (L92U) with grey leather interior and matching carpets, and is equipped with the superb 18-inch "Turbo Look" wheels with red brake calipers, for a presentation that is as chic as it is sporty. In addition to the "Turbo Powerkit" it has many other interesting options, such as the electric sunroof or the stainless steel exhaust silencer. It would have known 3 owners before its arrival in France in 2009 with only 82000 km. As a Swiss vehicle, the car has been extremely well maintained. So much so that it is now in excellent condition, both aesthetically and mechanically, with a total of 115300 km. The maintenance booklet that accompanies it allows us to note the regularity of the maintenance operations carried out. It is completed by an important history file covering ten years, since its importation in France, where it belonged to a great specialist of the brand; further proof that it is an example of a remarkable quality. In addition to its booklet, the car has all its manuals, its spare keys and even
