Description

The 993 Turbo launched to critical acclaim in 1995 and represented a shift in philosophy for the engineers in Stuttgart. Gone was the wild ‘widow-maker’ ride, replaced with a focus and precision resulting from the introduction of an all wheel drive system (originally pioneered and derived from the legendary 959) allowing this small and compact 911 to fully exploit the 402bhp and 398 ft lb of torque generated by the 3.6 litre twin turbo flat-six. As a consequence of these newfound ‘manners’, drivers were able to harness and deploy the phenomenal power to devasting effect, leaving the contemporary rivals from Maranello (Ferrari F355) and Tochigi (Honda NSX) in its rear view mirror!

This 993 Turbo was originally supplied to via LSM Distributors (one of the Official Porsche Centre operators) in South Africa as a C26 specification example in July of 1996. The service book shows no less than 11 stamps all from OPC’s (predominantly Porsche Centre Johannesburg) between 1997 – 2010. At which point usage tailed off with Turbo covering just 3,875km over a 6 year period. The car was then recommissioned with a major service at M&R Motors (a noted South African Porsche Specialist) prior to embarking on its new life being imported here to the UK. At which point a speedometer change was carried out with the mileage covered to date noted at 22,726 miles. The original speedometer is supplied to fully validate the cars total mileage. From here, the Turbo has had 4 further services carried out at UK specialists in 2018 / 2019 / 2020 and the most recent regular maintenance taking place at Porsche Centre Silverstone in September 2021.

Supplied with a comprehensive history file which fully supports the ‘no expense spared’ attitude the owners of this stunning Turbo clearly adopted, every one of the total 24,618 miles have been accounted for to give this example ‘upper echelon’ status.

This Turbo needs to be seen to be fully appreciated so do contact a member of the sales team for further information or to make an appointment.
