Porsche 993 Accessories & Parts

About Porsche 993

The Porsche 993 represents the eighth generation of the automaker's flagship model, the Porsche 911. It arrived in Europe in 1993 and in the US shortly after. The 993 received attention from critics and drivers alike fairly quickly due to the model's departure from its 911 roots. The Porsche 993 displayed rounded bumpers, revised headlights, and various other styling cues that stood apart from the previous 911 parts. As for the model's dimensions, the Porsche 993 was unveiled with a wheelbase of 89.4 inches, a width of 65 inches (convertible- 69.9 inches), a height of 51.6 inches (Speedster- 50.4 inches), and an overall length of 168.3 inches.

One of the Porsche 993's most notable improvements was its suspension system. The 993 Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 models used a new A-arm rear suspension and a McPherson strut-suspension. Also, an updated antilock brake system along with larger disc brakes highlighted the vehicle's main safety features. Power came from a 3.6L flat-six boxer engine (good for up to 270 horsepower) directed through a six-speed manual transmission. Two notable 911 versions were missing from the 993 roster - the Turbo and Targa. By 1996, Porsche had decided to once again make both available.

When the 993 Turbo was reintroduced into the lineup it showed off a 3.6L dual-compressor engine that got credit for pumping out up to 400 horsepower. The 993 Targa showcased a brand-new Webasto-constructed roof featuring sliding-glass panels on the Cabriolet's body. Its engine was rated at 282 horsepower. A year later, the Porsche 993 Turbo S entered the lineup and took over the top-spot with its powerful 424-hp engine. Abroad, Porsche was putting the finishing touches on the water-cooled 996, which would eventually replace the 993. Meanwhile, for US car buyers, the last two model years saw minimal changes made to the 993 parts.

Bringing to the table a sleek, muscular build and the power to match, it's no wonder why the Porsche 993 has remained such a steadfast presence in the garages of American car owners. It's got the traditionally reliable Porsche parts delivering outstanding performance that makes going for any drive an opportunity for adventure as well as the street-style looks that beg for some custom input.
