1996 Porsche 911 Turbo
We’ve had quite a history with this particular car as its owner is one of our best and longest-tenured customers. For its most recent round of improvements we converted from factory all wheel drive to two wheel drive a-la GT2, along with a fresh engine rebuild, larger hybrid turbos, a few suspension tweaks and a shortened shifter assembly.
Previously this Turbo had seen significant track time but recent family obligations (and a dedicated 993 C2 track car) means that it now sees more street use than anything else. Because of this and the two wheel drive conversion we set the suspension and alignment specifications to something less aggressive than they had been previously while still more sporting than the factory settings.
With the RS front uprights and tie rod assemblies, revised alignment, fresh motor and quick-spooling hybrid turbochargers this 993 is an absolute blast to drive.
