As one of the last of the air cooled 993, Turbo Porsches; this pristine example is one highly optioned, and a well cared for collectible example. It’s ready for the discerning buyer whose heart is calling for an original air-cooled Porsche, for which many will argue that there’s no substitute, though others try.
Fun and Magic, Last of the Air-Cooled
Imagine opening the sun roof, rolling down the windows, and enjoying the rush of the turbo sound, the air-cooled whine, and the inner joy of acceleration as you launch through the gears. If that thought doesn’t bring a smile to your face and lust to your heart, or experiencing the pleasure of quietly taking in the form of the turbo from all it’s angles and wondering how Porsche did that, than this car and all it represents historically and mechanically is probably not for you . . . After all, it’s a magic relatively few know or even call their own.
On the other, if you can deal with the go-kart quickness driving fun and are able to endure the countless thumbs-up, friendly waves from young and old, the crowds at parked times, and meeting others of like passion who understand and share the feelings, your goals will be achieved here.

Mechanically Correct and StockMechanically correct with unaltered ride height and down to the original amber turn signals, this 993 Turbo has recently benefited from over $13,000 in mechanicals to ensure superb running and cosmetic condition for its next owner. The work included a full major service and tune up, replacing all fluids, filters, belts, spark plugs, cam housing gaskets, and upper and lower valve cover gaskets. The turbos were removed and rebuilt by Turbo Technologies and refitted with a turbo line upgrade kit having the proper (and overlooked at the factory?) check valves. Included with the updated gaskets and hoses were a complete new clutch assembly and flywheel, clutch master cylinder, clutch slave cylinder, and new Continental tires.*
*All removed clutch parts and inner turbo parts are available for inspection at Vette Culture as are
documented pictures of the work—all will be included in the sale as proof sources/at buyer’s choice.
Gino owns Vette Culture. In 1999 Gino’s father, Al, invested in this Porsche, drove it for a few years and then kept it in his private collection. The car was sold to a private collector in 2012 and given the mechanicals to go for years, all with the intent of retaining a prize fully optioned, rare Porsche Turbo. However, as fate would have it, the owner and his family suffered a tragedy in 2015. Vette Culture now have the car up for adoption, and knows the complete history from 1999 to the present day.
