A full ten years after it was introduced, the `993` Twin Turbo remains a stunning performance machine. Its specification bears remarkable similarity to the 959 that stunned the motoring world ten years before that, including 6-speed manual gearbox, all wheel drive, twin turbochargers, 400+hp, which conspire to bring 0-60 in the low 4 second range. Today, the 993 is especially appealing to traditional Porsche enthusiasts not only for its fantastic performance, but also because it is viewed to be the last of the original 911`s. It is the last of the air-cooled cars, and those familiar with a 1965 911 will instantly recognize the dashboard, doors, and greenhouse as being the same, despite the passage of over thirty years between the two cars. When asked why the door design was unchanged for so long, Porsche Design Chief Harm Lagaay simply replied `it`s a good door`. The more recent car has of course been updated and bears all of the modern equipment expected of a car of this caliber.

This particular car has been owned by its current owner for about seven to eight years and is a nicely optioned well-cared for California example that has covered 49,917 miles. The options include litronic xenon headlights, rear wiper, full leather interior (including the dashboard, door panels, and door pulls), silver gauge faces, supple leather, 6-CD changer, digital sound package, and lumbar support for driver`s seat. The car has also been fitted with a Turbo S style front spoiler. Aside from having an upgraded clutch fitted several years ago, the car has seen no major work beyond the regular service intervals.

Cosmetically, the car is very nice, with a few door edge chips, and the usual wear on the front end from road use, though it is lighter than average for the mileage. The paint is otherwise extremely nice, with excellent luster and no other dents, scratches, or other blemishes of significance. The glass and lights display wear appropriate for the mileage, and there is a crack in the left rear turn signal lens. The wheels are excellent with no deterioration to the finish or curb rash whatsoever.

The interior also has the feel of a well-cared for original car. The leather upholstery is very good, with light wear and one puncture in the driver`s seat bottom. The extensive leather on the center console, dashboard, and door panels is very attractive, and the carpets are excellent.

The engine compartment, trunk, and underside are all representative of a properly looked after unmolested car, with no untoward wear or signs of damage. The tools and jack are included, as is the manual pack. The engine compartment view is dominated by the enormous intercooler. Much of the cosmoline is still present on the underside, and the general lack of even surface corrosion reflects the California climate in which this car has lived.

This is a great opportunity to acquire what remains a stunning high-performance Porsche. Embodying the classic air-cooled Porsche values but also modern enough to use every day, the 993 Twin Turbo is perhaps the ultimate air-cooled 911, and is well on its way to becoming a classic in the future. This car, with its tidy original condition, nice options, and California history would make the ideal addition for someone looking to enjoy a true Porsche legend.
