Our project car arrives at Porsche Cardiff,
looking well used. Our first task was to
assess how much work was involved.
Having been in storage for six years
items for immediate replacement were
fuel and brake lines as well as suspension
components.

Upon removal of the engine and gearbox

After years of not being used, the exhaust
mountings were in a poor condition.

July 8th - Respray
Porsche approved bodyshop Motorvation
starts to undertake the massive task of
bringing the black paint back to factory
condition. Doors, bumpers, engine lid and
sunroof are removed and work is carried
out with great attention to detail. Layers
of glossy black paint are built up and after
a machine polish, the car shines like a
mirror, free from imperfections.

July 22nd - Engine Work
Returning to the engine bay, as with all air
cooled 911’s cooling fan & housing are
prominent once the engine lid is lifted.
This was removed and sent to a specialist
for coating. All timing and valve covers
were replaced and fitted with new polished
fixings. This showed up the remaining
original fixings and a decision was made
to replace all the fixings in the engine bay,
for aesthetic purposes only.

Summary
The Porsche 993 summarises the generation of all Porsche 911 models built between
late 1993 and 1998 – was the last and most advanced of the “true 911’s”, in other words
the legendary air-cooled Porsches. It was the successor of the Porsche 964 and featured
significant styling and technical innovations.
The exterior design of the front and rear bumper as well as front fenders including light
units and rear lights was changed: The “blockish” and dominant shape of the front and
rear bumpers of the 964 was evolved into a sleeker design that was more integrated
and flowing much better with the 911’s design. The front fenders and light units no
longer featured the characteristic “Torpedorohr” design (torpedo tube design) but
were incorporated better into the cars design now with the lights sitting in place less
steeply positioned and more aerodynamic. The shape of the 993 is considered by many
enthusiasts as the most homogenous and balanced of all 911’s.
Technical innovations included an all-alloy multi arm rear suspension attached to an all
alloy subframe providing a more direct and stable handling and eliminating all older 911’s
tendency to oversteer when lifting the throttle during hard cornering.
The 993’s air-cooled 3.6 litre M64 engine was derived from the 964 including some
refinements which included an improved engine management system and a
dual-flow exhaust system incorporating two catalytic converters instead of one. With
the 993 Porsche introduced a 6-speed manual transmission covering the increased speed
range of 270km/h+ and allowing the driver to use the best torque range of 4500rpm+ in
virtually every situation.
