History and Development

The 911 generation released in 1993 and produced until 1998 is mostly recognized as the Type 993, as this number is its internal dub. This was a technically and visually improved model, providing some considerable styling changes.

This was also the last 911 range of models to have air-cooled engines, as Porsche ceased air-cool production when the 993 stopped being made as well. Within the 993 series, Porsche engineers thought of the different types of drivers and created a fair amount of variants to please everyone.

Engine and Transmission

Almost every 993 car comes with a rear-mounted 3.6-liter engine, with the sole exception for the 3.8L RS variant. The standard 993 also came out originally with 268 hp, which would rise up to 282 hp in 1996. The RS variant comes with 296 hp and the Turbo variants are available between 402 and 450 hp.   Apart from the Carrera 4 variant, with its 4-wheel drive option, all the other 993 models are rear-wheel driven. This Porsche 911 generation’s non-turbo versions can reach 168 mi/h (270 km/h), while the turbocharged versions reach 188 mi/h (303 km/h). The cars come whether with a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an optional Tiptronic 4-speed automatic transmission.

Body and Design

The 993 body style is the result of Tony Hatter’s work, under chief designer Harm Laggay’s management. The result was a rather smooth body shell, with further aerodynamic front and rear ends, including a new front wing, new bumpers and larger fenders. The 1993 Porsche 911 was delivered in coupé and convertible (Targa) body shapes, plus an open-top Targa a couple of years later.
