As the final generation of the quintessential air-cooled Neunelfer, the 993 Carrera’s star will never fall. Perennially popular among Porschephiles, the 993 has recently been overshadowed in the appreciation stakes by the 964, despite the 993 boasting a far more polished drive thanks to the introduction of multilink rear suspension. “Long regarded as the pinnacle by many, this was and will always be the better car. The 993 is a very important piece of Porsche history,” says Jason Shepherd.
What’s more, the 993’s reputation means these cars have rarely fallen into the wrong hands, so there are plenty of good examples out there. “They’ve never really dipped low enough in value to get purchased by individuals without the financial means of maintaining them properly,” confirms RPM Technik’s Darren Anderson.
Care should still be taken when inspecting a potential purchase though, as many won’t have been restored as yet, despite the car having enjoyed classic status for some time. All our specialists agree a good 993 is a safe place to put your money.
