The 993 Turbo, introduced in mid-1995, retained a tight hold on the torch of the most powerful 911 variant whilst continuing the general development and improvements to the breed as a whole. Amongst the new features on the Turbo was an electronically controlled, viscous coupling, all-wheel-drive system, something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959 and a system that greatly improved the driveability of the car. Under the engine lid, now topped with a sculpted tail spoiler with downturned edges, lived the 3.6-litre, flat-six force-fed by twin K16 turbos. Combined with bigger brakes, fatter tires, a wide body and lower stance, the 993 Turbo was one of the fastest cars on the planet. With all four wheels helping to evenly distribute great handfuls of power, 0-60mph was dispatched in a staggering 3.7 seconds, 100mph whistled by in a further 5.7 seconds, and the linear forward thrust continued until the speedometer needle had said goodbye to 180mph and you were on conversational terms with the horizon.
Dating from November 1995, this lovely example is a left-hand drive, US-specification car finished in Guards Red with a Savannah Tan interior and cashmere coloured carpets. According to the odometer (in miles), it has only covered 7,975 miles from new in the hands of one owner and is in a commensurate, virtually showroom condition complete with all its documents.
