|My ’96 993 coupe
was purchased in July of ’98 with 6,000 miles on it.
Aventura green metallic
paint with cashmere beige interior.
following modifications were done to it:
B&B final muffler
Factory rear deck
with doors replaced the small jump seats *
ROW 030 springs
ROW 030 larger sway
Brey & Krause
Turbo S air inlet
replaced standard fog lights *
Carrera RS front
Carrera RS rocker
Carrera RS rear
Carrera RS center
Carrera RS logo
on rear deck *
Kinesis super cup
Power flow intake
Turbo 11.7 rotors
and calipers [black] front and rear *
[Brakes were installed
after photos were taken]
I liked the looks of the Carrera RS because
it was not outrageous, but it complimented the lines of the car.
The chassis modifications tweaked the
performance of the car so that it handles very well on the track at driver
education events yet still is a comfortable touring car. The exhaust
and power flow modifications allow the car to breathes better and are fun
to listen to. I credit the factory Porsche springs for lowering the
car without causing problems on most steep hills.
The engine is stock except as noted.
There may be some changes in the future to the engine but the cost to increase
the horsepower seems to be too expensive for the return on investment.
It seems just fine for now.
This is my fifth Porsche. My past
Porsches were: ’68 912, ’89 944, ’93 RS America and a ’97 Boxster.
The 993 is a great automobile and I am
not yet tempted by the 996.
