1996 Porsche 993TT



1996 Porsche 993 Twin-Turbo- 49k miles

How many of us still have the “Kills Bugs Faster” poster hanging on the wall of our garage? Of course, you will recall, this memorable advertising campaign exclusively featured an Arena Red 993TT, is that because Porsche thought this was the best color on a 993…

This particular 993TT is a very well loved, enthusiast-owned TT that you would be proud to own. Here is the basic overview:

  • Arena Red Metallic Exterior
  • Grey/Black Deviated Full leather interior
  • Digital Sound Package
  • Original MSRP $107,720

The car has received over $10,000 in recent work and service; here is what has been recently done:

  • Complete respray of the front end of the car due to rock chips. I was concerned about having it done because the car was wearing 100% original paint as verified by a paint meter. However it has 49k miles of rock chips which were distracting on such a gorgeous car. I made the decision to have it done by the best shop in the business and it is FLAWLESS! They painted the hood, both fenders, cowl and front bumper cover. The paint match is perfect and it looks like a zero mile car again. I have a video showing the before photos so you can see that is was only rock chips and no damage.
  • New OEM windshield ($1600!) due to pitting, new OEM headlights, new OEM Euro Turbo bumper cover so no bumperettes, Turbo S Brake cooling ducts. Clear bra on the entire front bumper cover.
  • 47,708 miles- Oil and filter, new keys and remotes (getting rid of switchblade style), new battery, all new drive belts, alternator pulley factory update, new clutch slave and accumulator, new hood struts front and rear, new fan resistor.

Being enthusiast-owned, the car has had a few nice upgrades done. They are as follows:

  • Fabspeed Muffler Bypasses (stock mufflers included)
  • Bilstein pSS9s set to RS+/- height
  • RS Drop Links
  • GT2 Adjustable Front and Rear sway bars
  • RS Motor Mounts
  • RS Rear Calipers
  • Cargraphic GT Aux Oil Cooler (Carnewal kit) Fan override wired to rear fog switch as per p-car.com
  • Euro Front Fog lights
  • Front Protection Bar (Carnewal)
  • AJUSA Front Strut Tower Bar
  • RS Brake Ducts (in place of front fogs)
  • 996 Turbo Twists with PZero Rosso

The motor is completely stock. The most recent leakdown 3,000 miles ago was between 2-5% across the board. This is just a great driving TT!

The car comes complete with the following items:

All the original books including the VIN-matched service book

  • 2 new style keys and fobs
  • Certificate of Authenticity (CofA)
  • OEM Tire compressor
  • OEM complete tool kit
  • OEM Jack, jack handle and green bag
  • 3- ring binder detailing all recent service and maintenance. Service history from 24k in binder, stamps in book prior.
  • OEM 993TT fitted car cover, new in box

It’s a just an AMAZING car, wouldn’t you rather have the real thing vs. the poster on the wall…
