Porsche is a German automobile manufacturing company that was formed in the 1930’s. Porsche makes sports cars, SUVs and sedans that are sold worldwide. The Porsche 993 was the last of the air-cooled 911 cars produced, a design that originated in the 1930’s. The 993 is the most highly refined and performance oriented 911 of the air-cooled series, and considered as the last “true” Porsche 911, collector values remain high. A Porsche 993 workshop manual pdf gives owners the information needed to maintain the high performance sports coupe like a professional.
The Porsche 993 was introduced in 1995 and featured several important, technological advancements over previous generations of the iconic 911. The use of alloy metals in the Porsche 993 is extensive, with significant suspension components and portions of the subframe constructed of the super strong, super light material. The materials and design of the suspension reduced the tendency of the 911 to understeer dangerously when letting off the throttle in a corner. This led to a more driveable, stable and enjoyable automobile, albeit without the inherent threat of death many earlier 911’s taunted spirited drivers with.
As with many variants of the 911, a long list of model variations and optional equipment was available. The base 993, known more commonly as the Carrera, was powered by a 3.6 L air-cooled boxer-type six cylinder engine that produced 272 horsepower in a car weighing in at 2,800 lbs. If that wasn’t enough, buyers could opt for the Porsche 993 Carrera 4, C2S, C4S, Turbo and Turbo S, all-wheel drive model powered by a dual turbocharged version that pumped out around 400 horsepower and could get you from a standstill to 100 miles per hour in less than 13 seconds.
The Porsche 993 has become a popular tuner car in the United States, as the ultimate high-performance versions were not sold in the states. Aftermarket companies produce a wide array of equipment that allows the owner to take a comparatively sedate coupe and transform it to a road-eating beast.
