1996 Porsche 993 Turbo – Arena Red
This is what we call a unicorn. Its a 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo with under 50,000 miles. Unfortunately for the owner they have physical problems and can’t drive a manual anymore hence the sale. For the very fortunate (especially ones with the funds) here is the opportunity to buy one of the greatest 911 Turbos ever made.
As we all know, the Porsche 993 is going thru a boom stage and prices has gone thru the roof. The Turbo has always been considered the prized model of the 993 lineup and the care that is most sought out by collectors. Old-schoolers claim why the newer turbos may be faster they lack the personality found in the 993 air-cooled version. But even being 20 years old the Porsche 993 Turbo was a very fast car, with 0-60 times at 4.0 seconds. Still very fast in today’s time.
The other aspect of being very current is the asking price. The current owner is basically asking for the cost of a brand new Porsche 993 Turbo from the 1990’s and believe it or not thats not being unrealistic in today’s market. The biggest factor in the bubble of 993 Turbo prices is the limited numbers. There was only 2,000 brought to the USA in total so the numbers are limited. And this car has the very rare Arena Red exterior color to boot.
If you were ever dreaming of buying a Porsche 993 Turbo and have the funds, its the right time now to get it.
