The 993 was the first generation of the 911 to have a 6-speed manual transmission included as standard. In virtually every situation it was possible to keep the engine at its best torque range above 4,500 rpm. The 911’s horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine is located at the rear, putting the weight of the engine on the driven wheels which aids greatly in increasing in increasing traction. The 993 has a hydraulic dual circuit braking system with 4-piston aluminium fixed calipers. All brakes are cross drilled, ensuring optimal braking even in wet conditions. The exceptional reliability and usability are down to Porsche’s constant use of Motorsport as a proving ground and development platform for the components of its road cars.
For the 993 to achieve maximum performance and a generous spread of torque, cylinder charging was further optimised by adding variable length inlet tracts to the two-stage tuned intake system. This was known as Varioram, and boosted torque at low and medium engine speeds, making torque more progressive, whilst at the same time ensuring maximum performance at peak revs. The engine produces 285 HP at 6,100 rpm, maximum torque is 340 Nm at 5,250 rpm. 0-62 mph takes just 5.3 seconds.
Our 993 Carrera was supplied by Rivervale of Hove Porsche, West Sussex in August 1996, and has a comprehensive service history. It comes with its original order form, excellent history file, leather driver’s book pack, historic MOT certificates and spare keys. This is an opportunity for a Porsche collector to obtain a low mileage example of the desirable rear wheel drive 993 Carrera in a classic colourway. The car will also benefit from a 12-month written warranty.
