3,608 cc Type M64/605 SOHC air-cooled flat six-cylinder engine, Bosch electronic fuel injection, twin KKK turbochargers, six-speed manual transaxle, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, four-wheel independent suspension with coil springs

The last of the legendary air-cooled, flat-six Porsches were considered many to be the most refined. Of the acclaimed Type 993/911 produced from 1994 to 1998, these last of the air-cooled 911s were capable of performance that still impresses today. The heart of this Porsche Turbo is a flat six-cylinder engine fitted with a pair of K-24 turbochargers that produces 430 horsepower in U.S. specification. Power is put to the ground through a six-speed manual transaxle and all-wheel drive system that was developed for the earlier 964 Carrera 4. Porsche altered the Bosch Motronic engine-management system and added an additional oil cooler to handle the increased heat load. Large, 12.68-inch power-assisted ventilated and cross-drilled multi-piston disc brakes with red calipers delivered impressive stopping power from any speed. The Turbo 911 delivered stunning performance in a package as luxurious and exclusive as Porsche’s discerning customers had come to expect. It really was the ultimate supercar that could be used as a daily commuter if the owner wished. Collectors today value the 911 Turbo for its rarity, performance, timeless styling, and that it is the last iteration of the air-cooled Turbo.

Unlike some other special-edition models, Porsche did not sacrifice creature comforts and usability for track performance with the Turbo. This Porsche has a generous amount of desirable factory options that include: illuminated footwell, stainless-steel tailpipes, stainless-steel door sentry guards with logo, Alu-Look instrument dials with chrome with chrome rings, aluminum shift knob, aluminum parking brake lever, automatic speed control, interior monitoring, sun/moonroof, Nokia DSP (Digital Sound Processing) audio system, six-disc CD changer Becker Porsche CDC-3, pleated leather front seats and pleated leather rear seats. The perfect combination of creature comforts and exciting performance, the 911 with twin turbochargers is one of the most desirable cars of its era and, therefore, one of the most thrilling air-cooled Porsches to drive and enjoy.

This rare Porsche Turbo, finished handsomely in black with black interior, has been driven less than 6,000 miles since new and remains in superb original condition throughout. It has been fitted with a high-quality custom exhaust system as well as a set of lowering springs to enhance the already brilliant power and handling of this amazing car (the original factory parts accompany the car). Also accompanying the car are all the factory manuals, books, space-saver spare tire, jack and car cover.
