Footnotes

  • "If the art of tuning is all about balance, then this G-Force car has the poise and precision of a Rudolph Nureyev." - GT Porsche magazine, March 2004.
    An important landmark in the Porsche 911's continuing development arrived for 1994 with introduction of the Type 993, destined to be the last to use the air-cooled engine that had been a distinguishing feature of the 911 since its introduction 30 years previously. The Type 993 is regarded by many as the most beautiful 911 of all. Over the years the 911 had received numerous aerodynamic and safety-inspired add-ons, diluting the purity of the original form; the Type 993's arrival marked a return to basic principles, being recognisably a 911 but one in which all functions had been harmoniously integrated in a truly outstanding example of modern automotive styling.

    Along with the sleeker bodywork came new multi-link rear suspension that improved both ride quality and roadholding, reducing the 911's characteristic lift-off oversteer. The 3.6-litre engine not only produced more power than before but made it available over a wider rev range thanks to 'Variocam' variable valve timing and variable-length air intakes. Introduced in 1995, the Type 993 Turbo was the first Porsche production model to feature a twin-turbo-charged engine and the first 911 Turbo to incorporate permanent four-wheel drive. With 408PS (402.5bhp) on tap, the Type 993 Turbo offered a level of performance approaching that of the Porsche 959 supercar, racing to 100km/h in around 4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 290km/h.

    This Type 993 911 Turbo was delivered new on 6th March 1997 through AFN Chiswick. Nine services are recorded in the service booklet: eight between 1998 and 2005 (at 39,172 miles) plus another in August 2020 (at 39,674 miles). This car has benefited from the attentions of G-Force Motorsport, and was featured at length in the March 2004 edition of GT Porsche magazine (copy available). As fitted to this car, G-Force's Stage II kit included 100-cell sports catalytic converters; Turbo S exhaust system; GT2-specification K24 Turbochargers; ECU re-mapping; BMC air filters; Sachs sintered clutch with lightweight flywheel; and an up-rated fuel pressure regulator, the result being a maximum output of 500bhp. Bills on file from G-Force total £9,843.69. Finished in Arena Red metallic, this stunning Porsche supercar is offered its owner's manual and book pack; a quantity of expired MoTs; invoices for the above services and works; and a V5C registration document.
