This 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo was initially delivered to Circle Porsche in Long Beach, California, and it also spent time in Colorado and Arizona prior to its recent acquisition by the selling dealer. The car is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6L flat-six that drives all four wheels through a six-speed manual transaxle with a limited-slip differential. It is finished in Glacier White over a Midnight Blue leather interior, and it was optioned without a sunroof. Additional features include 18″ Turbo Twist wheels, stainless-steel tailpipes, xenon headlights, fog lights, a fixed rear spoiler, power-adjustable front seats, automatic climate control, and a Becker-Porsche CDR-210 stereo. The tires were replaced within the last two years. This 993 Turbo shows 75k miles and is now offered by the selling dealer with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a window sticker, the owner’s manual, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Arizona title.
The 993 Turbo featured wider bodywork, revised bumper covers, and a fixed rear spoiler to accommodate top-mount intercoolers when compared with the standard 993 coupe. This example is finished in Glacier White (L3AU) and features xenon headlights with washers, integrated fog lights, and polished exhaust outlets. The car was optioned without a sunroof.
The 18″ Turbo Twist wheels are mounted with Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires that show date codes from 2020 and 2021. The car features an Automatic Brake Differential (ABD), and the 993 was the first 911 to feature multi-link rear suspension. Braking is provided by Porsche-branded four-piston calipers over cross-drilled rotors. The shocks were replaced in April 2017.
The seats are trimmed in Midnight Blue supple leather, and matching leather extends to the door panels, dashboard, and center console. Aluminum accents are present on the shifter and handbrake levers, and amenities include power-adjustable front seats, a Becker-Porsche CDR-210 stereo, cruise control, and automatic climate control.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames aluminum-look VDO instrumentation including a central tachometer with a 6,600-rpm redline, a 200-mph speedometer, an analog Quarz clock, and gauges for oil pressure, oil temperature, oil level, and fuel level. The six-digit odometer shows 75k miles, approximately 1,500 of which were added under current ownership.
The twin-turbocharged 3.6L flat-six was factory rated at 408 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. The valve cover gaskets were replaced in August 2021. An oil change was performed recently.
Power is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transaxle with a limited-slip differential. Additional photos of the underside are presented in the gallery below.
