This 911 Turbo S type 993 was just built, only with brand new original parts.

In the margin of the contest of elegance of Pebble Beach, Porsche introduced a 911 Turbo S type 993, built only from new parts. It is, unfortunately, not homologated for road use.

At the sight of this Porsche 911 Turbo S generation 993, one may believe that it is a model completely restored and repainted. However, this car is completely new and has just been assembled by the department, Porsche Classic, from 6 500 original parts. These were taken in the stock of the brand, which is aimed at the restoration of the old models.

This 911 was manufactured in 2018 is therefore in all points according to the specifics of the Turbo S, 1998. It adopts a flat-six 3.6 biturbo air-cooled, 450 hp, also completely new. Only the paint is not of time, since Porsche has decided to cover this 911 Project Gold of the hue of Golden Yellow Metallic, which was introduced on the current 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.

The 993 Turbo was developing 450 hp thanks to its flat-six 3.6 biturbo air-cooled.

We also find this color with the edging on the contour of the rims, but also to the inside on the stitching, which contrast with the black leather of the seats and the dashboard. The rims and the engine cover adopt when a hue and gloss black. You may recognize the 993 Turbo S compared to Turbo to normal, thanks to air intakes on the rear fenders.


Only for the track

Recall that the 993 Turbo came out in 1995 was the first 911 supercharged to benefit from a twin-turbocharged and four wheel-drive, but also the last to have a motor with air cooling. This last “detail” mechanics is the main responsible for the non-approval of this 911 Project Gold on our roads.

In fact, the car has been built in 2018, it must logically adhere to the standards currently in force, to be able to be used on the road. And it would seem that upgrade a such a motor has become nearly impossible. However, if the future owner of this car came from a country is more lax, it should without a doubt be able to use it one day.

The car will be presented to the public during the Porsche Rennsport Reunion, which will take place on the circuit of Laguna Seca on the 26th of September next, and will then be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s at a sale held on 27 October at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta.

The paint is the only item that is not original. It has been taken from the recent 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.

The profits from the sale will then be donated to the foundation Ferry Porsche, which has been created for the 70 years of the brand. Currently, the odds for a 993 Turbo S, that had been produced in only 345 units, over € 300 000. But there is no doubt that this unique model is dated 2018 will largely exceed this sum.
