"Purchased in place of my 997 turbo that was declining in value. No regrets! handles like it's on rails! Motor sound package is a must have. I've owned 4 Porsches and my 993 keeps my 1967/ 912 in great company. When considering,look for a car with either low miles or with recent SAI service.(secondary air injection)."
Cons: "Eats up rear tires quickly.., but it a sports car!"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have owned my Carrera 4 narrow body since ordering it new from the local Porsche dealer in 1996. I still get the "feeling" everytime I drive it. It seems will last forever, as long as your take good care of it, plus it is not too maintenance intensive (no valve adjustments required!). I have lowered it and added adjustable Koni shocks which makes this car look even better. Not as quiet and fast as the newer 911 models, but the noise and road feel is all part of the experience for any true sports car fanatic."
"This is my daily driver, but I work from home so miles are low. Very reliable. It gets more attention the older it gets. Other Porsche drivers seem to admire the 993. My wife thinks the ride is a bit stiff on long trips so we take her Highlander, though I crave the Porsche when we hit twisting roads. My kids won't let me sell it. Great cool factor for Dad."
"Lacks nothing right down to the courtesy lights are perfect. No Mechanical, or paint problems, never been in an accident. Fair Weather vehicle not driven in snow and rarely (only if caught init) rain"
