• The fastest and one of the final air-cooled Turbo Porsches produced
• Legendary performer; low documented mileage
• Renowned final Turbo from last air-cooled 911 series
• Offered from single ownership and proper care from new
• Includes extra set of original-spec tires and new rear window in crate
• California car from new with just 33,000 original miles

3,600 cc Type M64/60 SOHC air-cooled flat six-cylinder engine, Bosch electronic engine management and fuel injection, twin KKK K16 turbochargers and twin intercoolers, 408 HP at 5,750 RPM, six-speed manual transaxle and all-wheel drive (maximum 80/20 rear/front split), four-wheel independent coil-spring suspension, four-wheel ventilated and cross-drilled hydraulic disc brakes; wheelbase: 89.4”


When Porsche introduced the new 993-generation 911 model line-up for 1995, it was to be the last of the great and long-running air-cooled 911s. The evolution of the 911 was stunning, given the fact that Porsche cited the 993 contained 70-80 percent new or improved content and the outgoing 964 series was 85 percent new. Retaining only the roof and front deck lid from the preceding 964 model, the new 911 body featured athletically bulged fenders and a pinched waist, lending an overall “Coke bottle” design theme. Smooth, neatly integrated bumpers and reclined headlamps enhanced the new car’s aerodynamic profile. Of particular importance for driving enthusiasts and racers, the 993-body structure was some 20 percent stiffer than that of the 964. Underneath its seductive outer skin, the 993 heralded the arrival of an all-new rear suspension system. Named “LSA” for Light, Stable, and Agile, it was an all-aluminum, multi-link setup that at once brought improved handling and ride quality, while reducing noise. Detail refinements included a slightly updated interior, enlarged brakes, enhanced ABS, and one-inch wider wheels. A new six-speed gearbox allowed drivers to fully exploit the engine’s wider power band.

The eagerly anticipated 993 Turbo 3.6 debuted at the March 1995 Geneva Motor Show, featuring a 959-derived all-wheel drive system with an 80/20 rear/front torque split and a 408 horsepower engine fed by twin turbochargers with twin intercoolers. Interestingly, the 959’s influence remained strong, with Porsche management insistent that, only with the exception of racing-homologation specials, any series-production model, including the 408-horsepower 993 Turbo, must have all-wheel drive. An unqualified tour de force, the 993 Turbo immediately and predictably captivated the world’s motoring press and Porsche’s top clients with its mind-numbing performance potential and incredible driving experience. According to magazine road-test reports, the 993 Turbo routinely achieved 0-to-100 km/h (62 mph) times in just 4.4 seconds, en route to a 180-mph top end. According to marque authorities, Porsche manufactured just 2,457 examples of the 993 Turbo, including the nine early-production “pilot” cars built during December 1994.

Now offered from the original owner, who is a prolific collector of some of the world’s most valuable and significant high-performance machinery, this 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 is a stellar example from the universally appreciated and final, 993-Series air-cooled models from Porsche. Having waited some six months to take delivery of this car after placing the order, this renowned performer has only had one owner/driver and it has recently turned 33,000 original miles from new. It was purchased new at Carlsen Porsche of Redwood City, California and has never been hit or damaged. The radio is an optional unit with removable faceplate. The original rear window defroster did fail early in the car’s lifetime, and when the owner sought a replacement (requiring an entirely new rear window), he was advised they were no longer available from the factory, so he purchased a new unit, without the defroster, which was never installed and remains inside its shipping crate today and goes with the sale of the Turbo. The original books, manuals, and factory items remain with the car and it even comes with an additional and unused set of tires, which the owner secured as they were no longer to be available for purchase. Never needing mechanical repairs, running and driving great, and offered from fastidious single-owner care from new in California, this 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 is quite likely one of the finest now available at auction.
