Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this opportunity to own one of the lowest-mileage UK-supplied RHD 993 X50 Turbos. Presented in a classic colour scheme, this is a vehicle not to be missed. The 911 has captivated drivers for over 50 years. The 911 is a sports car, which means that it produces peak performance in any driving situation. Not simply speed, but agility and handling, pure driving pleasure and exhilaration.
The 911 (993) Turbo’s all-wheel drive system uses a viscous coupling to vary the power flow depending on the road surface and driving conditions. Power to the front wheels is varied from 5% to 35% in normal driving conditions, (up to a maximum of 40% if required) ensuring maximum grip and handling. The electronic limited slip differential provides further traction at speeds below 40 mph, to adapt to any tyre adhesion loss on wet or icy road surfaces.
The standard 408 hp produced by the 911 Turbo, combined with the four-wheel drive package guaranteed safe use of the car’s performance when it was really needed. The Porsche engineers were particularly proud of its power-to-weight ratio of approximately 5.0 kg/kW, and of its staggering 540 Nm of maximum torque at 4,500 rpm. Acceleration was stunning, from 0 – 100 km/h in 4.5 secs flat, and it stopped from 200 km/h to standstill in the same time. This car needed a fraction of the braking time, and distance, required by other vehicles. The addition of the Exclusive Option 706 X50 power pack with its adapted ECU meant that the maximum output rose to 430hp, (and gained an additional oil cooler and revised tailpipes), which provided even more thrills.
The 911 Turbo has reduced ground clearance, and a fixed rear spoiler with an additional lip to ensure optimum air flow over the car. To the driver, this attention to correct design delivers outstanding road holding.
Originally supplied by Five Oaks Garage Porsche in April 1997, this vehicle is presented in exemplary condition. It also benefits from low ownership and a complete service history and is supplied with its original leather handbook pack, spare keys and an excellent full history file.
Freshly serviced by Porsche Centre Swindon, it has a new tyre set, and air conditioning evaporator. The car will also be supplied to the new owner with a 12-month RAC comprehensive warranty. Available to view now at our London showrooms.
