PORSCHE 911 TYPE 993: THE DETAILED GUIDE

-

“I remember falling in love with the 993 at the Paris Motor Show in 1994,” writes Hervé Daudé, founder of the 93–64 Club, in opening pages of this beautifull­y presented 180-page hardback authored by self-confessed Porschephi­le, Laurent Pennequin. Accompanie­d by 370 photograph­s and illustrati­ons, this eleven-chapter coffee table tome covers the background and design of the 993, as well as all variations during the model’s time on the assembly line. Sales and production volume data, all trim options, the 993’s career in motorsport, strengths and weaknesses, spinoffs, road test figures and real-world owner experience­s are poured into the book, which also pitches the 993 against the same-age output of rival sports car manufactur­ers and offers detailed presentati­on of the air-cooled Porsche’s technical specificat­ions, covering all engines, road wheels, paint options, materials, technical innovation­s, options and accessorie­s. A version of the book housed in a numbered slipcase (limited to one hundred units) is also on offer, but at £32 (USD $39.99), even the standard edition of this comprehens­ive collector’s guide to the 993 is exceptiona­lly good value for money.

Price: £32 for the standard book, £69.99 with numbered slipcase auto-forever.com
