“Standing Guard in Style”
The 993 lineup has been heralded by industry leaders, professional race car drivers, Porsche purist and the young kid with the poster hanging in his bedroom! These are the last of an incredible air-cooled history that Porsche built and established from the early 911’s to the last generation of air-cooled greatness such as this ’96 Twin Turbo showpiece. With just 1,297 believed to be produced for the USA in 1996 this is one reason the price of these have continued to climb over the past decade. With the strong global demand for these cars it is a safe bet to invest in and enjoy on the weekends!
This timeless and iconic Porsche is one car that may look just as good sitting in your driveway as it does hustling the down the street at 120mph. These cars are such a joy to drive or ride along as a passenger. The feel of the twin turbos spooling up and launching you from a standstill to highway speeds is more addictive than any roller coaster Disney Land has to offer. Then throw in the outstanding braking abilities that you want to experience in a good way as this rumbling beast’s huge red calipers grab the discs with authority and if you are not wearing your seatbelt plan on eating dash quickly. The one thing that many forget about these cars is that they are all-wheel drive thanks to the proven system that was established in the famous 959 that established a strong run in the all-wheel drive setup for Porsche from mid-80’s.
Delivered new out of Town North Porsche in Richardson Texas to Dr. Richard Stanley where he enjoyed the car for just over 3yrs and less than 5k miles. The car was bought by a dealer out of Farmington Hills Michigan and sold to the 2nd owner who kept the car up at his lake home in northern Michigan. The car was treated to routine maintenance its entire life and was cared for properly to maintain its current state. The car was ordered with precision from the factory with some very unique and expensive items from the Porsche catalog. The car is featured in the prominent Guards Red paint with Cashmere/black leather interior. Further a la carte items are as follows; Porsche floormats, heated front seat package, Light Rootwood shift level knob, Porsche caps in rims, Light Rootwood instrument carrier(dash), Light Rootwood brake handle, Metal door sill with Insignia, Light Rootwood door panel trim, storage tray in center console, deviating velour trunk carpet, heated seats, Headrest restraint w/ Porsche crest, driver and passenger power lumbar support, Digital sound package, remote CD Changer in front, and Supple leather front and rear seats. The original MSRP was $115,256! Vehicle is stunning in person and shows extremely well. New tires, new battery, fresh service, all original books with leather pouch, factory MSRP, radio code card, original stereo along with new Porsche touchscreen stereo/navigation system recently installed. This is the car to have and with many of these leaving the USA for international buyers, the availability of nice, clean and well documented cars are harder and harder to find. This one is priced right and has the miles that you can enjoy to drive it as opposed to just looking at it and wishing you could log some miles on it. The trailer queens don’t provide the fun factor that this Turbo will give the next owner!
