1997 Porsche 993 Turbo S(Riviera Blue)
Introduced in 1997 and built for only two years, the Turbo S was a huge step up in performance, looks, exclusivity, and price over the standard 911 Turbo. Of the acclaimed Type 993 produced from 1994 to 1998, the Turbo S was among the last of the air-cooled 911s and was capable of performance that still impresses today.
The 0–100 sprint of only 8.9 seconds was half a second faster than that of the Turbo, and if the driver was brave enough, the car would reach a top speed of 184 mph.The heart of the Turbo S is a flat six-cylinder engine fitted with a pair of K-24 turbochargers that produces 430 hp 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 yellow calipers delivered impressive stopping power from any speed.
The Porsche Exclusive Department built only 345 examples of the Turbo S, and this incredible rare car is easily identifiable by its numerous unique features throughout. The front fog lights were removed and replaced with air ducts to aid front brake cooling, the exhaust system was replaced with a modified unit that has quadruple rear tips, the flared rear fenders sprouted large air inlets, and the rear deck featured an impressive “Aerokit II” biplane spoiler to increase downforce.Unlike some other special-edition models, Porsche did not sacrifice creature comforts and usability for track performance with the Turbo S. Inside was a luxurious full leather interior with generous amounts of carbon fiber trim on the lower portion of the dashboard, around the gauges, along the doorsills, and on the center console, door panels, and door pulls. It even has an electric sunroof.
The Turbo S delivered stunning performance in a package as luxurious and exclusive as discerning Porsche customers had come to expect. It really was the ultimate supercar that could comfortably be driven as a daily commuter. Collectors today value the Turbo S for its rarity, performance, and the timeless styling of the final iteration of the legendary air-cooled Turbo.
