1996 911 Last Of The Air Cooled! For Sale

Introduced in 1993 for the 1994 model year and in time for the 911’s 30th anniversary, the 993 would be the very last of the air-cooled Porsches before the company moved on to the water-cooled 996 for the New Millenium, a step that nobody would have expected a generation earlier and one that frustrated Porsche-philes.

The 993 was a hugely important car for Porsche that came at a formative, turbulent time. By the mid-1990s, the front-engined cars were all gone and there was a brief time – the 1996 model year – that the Boxster hadn’t arrived yet and the 993 was the only model in Porsche’s lineup.

As for styling, it was an all-new look while still unmistakably 911. Styled by Englishman Tony Hatter, it had wide, muscular bulges in all the right places, and the lower front fenders meant that it was the first 911 in which the drivers couldn’t see them from the cockpit.

As for power, Porsche stuck with the tried and true and set about further improving the 964’s flat-six. Porsche redesigned the bottom end, added hydraulic self adjusting valve clearance and completely redesigned the exhaust.

Front brakes were also enlarged and overall the 993 was 20 percent torsionally stiffer than the 964. The four-speed Tiptronic transmission was carried over and improved as well. This is a targa with a sliding glass roof instead of the removable piece found in previous 911 Targas.

Reception for the 993, which was admirably priced cheaper than its predecessor, was immediate and enthusiastic. It was even described as the planet’s most eminently practical supercar.

These are the last air-cooled 911’s, which marked the end of an era. Porsche had built 410, 348 air-cooled 911s before moving on to the somewhat unloved water-cooled 996.

The 993 is collectible for a lot of reasons. It’s not just that it’s the last air-cooled car. It’s the blend of classic 911 looks, heritage and sound with modern technology and conveniences. Many consider it to be the best looking of all 911s as well, and it’s certainly one of the most rewarding cars to drive, even if some of the newer 911s are quicker.

The 993s are mostly without the potentially catastrophic faults of some later Porsches, They are solidly built cars aided further by the fact that they aren’t yet old enough to have suffered severe neglect.
