Reviving the 993 Turbo for One Car
In 2018, Porsche is celebrating its 70th anniversary as a sports car manufacturer. For this special occasion, the Porsche Classic division went ahead with a unique project. This venture goes by the name of Project Gold. Basically, Porsche is creating a brand-new classic vehicle. The project, a Porsche 993 911 Turbo Project Gold, will only have one unit available for market. Fortunately, people who’d like to buy the car can attempt to do so at auction. During the RM Sotheby’s auction in Atlanta on October 27, 2018, this car will be sold for a great cause. All funds from the vehicle will go to the Ferry Porsche Foundation. This charity focuses on youth development, education, and social activities.
Specs on 993 Turbo Project Gold
The brand-new Porsche 993 911 Turbo Project Gold will be the official last air-cooled model by the manufacturer. Cut off two decades ago in 1998, this car continues the chassis number chain while being unique to itself. First, this build features a 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine with 450 horsepower. This motor is from the original 993 Turbo S, rather than the 993 Turbo. Obviously, this engine will feature air-cooling technology from the 90s period rather than modern coolant systems. The engine works in combo with an original manual transmission and AWD system. Yes, the transmission and AWD system were pulled from a classic parts bin at the facility. Finally, the car wears a beautiful golden yellow metallic paint to signify its presence.
Going Once! Going Twice! Sold!
