Ex-Dennis Rodman with TechArt Upgrades

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 was purchased new by Dennis Rodman and has been personalized accordingly. Upgrades were carried out in a no expense spared fashion, and the new owner of this car will be the recipient of thousands of dollars of equipment not found on stock 993 Turbos offered for the same price. In addition to all the modern amenities like air conditioning, central locking, and security system, it is also extremely well-optioned. Original options include litronic headlights, rear wiper, headlight washers, supple leather, full leather (including upper and lower dashboard, door panels, emergency brake handle, and center console), headrests embossed with Porsche crests, full power seats, embroidered Lloyd`s floormats, and 6-disc CD changer. This car also has the full carbon fiber interior, which covers the dashboard, door panels, and handbrake handle. Aluminum gauge faces are also fitted, along with aluminum accents to the bezels, shifter, and handbrake lever. Furthermore, the car was ordered in a special order color, Fly Yellow, which is not quite as pale as the more frequently seen Speed Yellow. This car has been further personalized with an upgraded receiver and amps, and a number of performance and cosmetic upgrades. The wheels are modular Speedline items, which were added at a cost of nearly $6,000. The cost of the TechArt bodywork upgrades was in excess of $6,000 and includes front bumper, rear spoiler, and Turbo S-style combined brake ducts and fog lights. A performance exhaust system with generously proportioned oval tips has also been fitted. The car has tinted windows, clear bra, and aluminum pedals, in addition to an upgraded exhaust system and two sets of Lloyd`s floormats, including four brand new ones still in the box embroidered with `Turbo`.

Cosmetically, the car is in extremely nice condition. The exterior is largely free of faults, with the only noticeable flaws being a two inch scratch on the right front fender, and a rock chipped and slightly cracked windshield. The glass and lenses are in excellent shape, including the front ones, which have been protected by the film. The wheels and bodywork modifications give the car lots of presence, and there really is nothing to detract from this car`s visual impact.

The interior is in similar condition. The only indication of wear is to the bolsters of the driver`s seat. Otherwise, the interior presents as new. There is no shrinkage or discoloration to the extensive leather, and the carpets show no wear. The overmats currently fitted show some fading and wear to the edging, but a brand new set is included.

This is an opportunity to acquire a car that combines the best of today`s technology with classic Porsche design features. This particular car is especially appealing because of its interesting history and extremely comprehensive specification. Included with the car are the jack, tools, compressor, and full set of books.
