Everyone eagerly awaited the new 911 Turbo in 1991. It was the launch of the 964 series 911, with major updates to the suspension and styling. Chief Engineer Hans Mezger was busy managing their motorsports program, so he didn’t have adequate time to develop a turbocharged version of the new 3.6L engine. This led the 911 Turbo to use a refreshed version of the 3.3L engine from the previous (930) generation.
What he and his team were building was destined to shock the world. Once all the kinks were worked out, the Turbo 3.6 arrived in 1993. This monster offered 355 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque at almost any rpm. Those figures are close to the Ferrari Testarossa, which had twice the number of cylinders.
Porsche had built a world-class engine and placed it into a car that only weighs 3,000 lbs. The result was a missile that outperformed any of its competitors. Borg-Warner supplied two K27 turbos, each one capable of 450 horespower and 40 lbs of boost. Was it overkill? Most definitely. The Turbo 3.6 will pin you to the seat and not let go. Less than 1,500 examples were built, which makes this limited run almost as valuable as the Porsche 959.
If you can tame the beast, this one can be yours. Our friends at Automobiles Etcetera are located in Montreal, and this 1994 example only has 24,168 miles. It comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity as a U.S. spec car, and all service records are included.
