The magnificent 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo featured here is finished in the classic factory correct color combination of Black on Black with an impeccably kept full leather interior. This meticulously maintained twin turbo has only been driven 15,588 miles and cannot be told from new. It was specially ordered new by John Vito on December 17, 1996 from the legendary Brumos Porsche in Jacksonville, Florida. Mr. Vito kept the car in his possession until 2009, when it was acquired by its second owner. While in the care of the second owner, there was an incident where the front bumper and left front fender needed to be replaced. The repair work was completed to factory specifications and any prior damage is now undetectable as certified by Porsche of Springfield, Missouri. Fitted with many exclusive options including power heated sport seats, stainless steel exhaust tips, aluminum gauges, premium sound system (and much more), this Porsche is the perfect example to add to any premier collection.

History of the 993 Turbo
The original Porsche 911 Turbo reset the performance car benchmark in 1975 upon its introduction. The first road-legal production car to utilize turbochargers to enhance its performance, these early 911 Turbos quickly gained a reputation for manic performance, yet became more and more refined with each passing generation. The advent of the 911 Turbo for the 993-generation of the Porsche 911 brought a number of interesting and welcome changes. This was the first 911 Turbo to utilize not only twin turbochargers, but all-wheel drive. With 408 bhp on tap, the all-wheel drive helped to keep the car inline, assisting to a 0-62 mph sprint in just 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph, performance figures that would give sports cars of today a run for their money.
