993's are on a wild ride.

Prices (across all variants) are up 72.1% since 2021. In 2021, the average 993 would set you back £82,990, today that figure stands at £142,810.

That's a compound annual growth rate of 31%. Inflation firmly in the rear-view mirror.

In model year (MY) 1994, the 964 911 was replaced by the 993.

The 993 was a step forward both from a technical and visual perspective. Porsche say only 20% of its parts were carried over from the previous generation 964.

Visually, the front wings are wider and flatter than its predecessor. And because of the shorter luggage compartment lid, the black rubber lip forming the seam between the body and the front bumper on the G model and the 964 was omitted.

It was wider at the rear with the wings widened and in a straighter line towards the rear with the higher-positioned tail lights.

The 993 was initially available as a Coupe and Cabriolet with rear-wheel drive. For model year 1995, Porsche released the all-wheel Carrera 4 and Turbo versions. In model years 1996/97, the Carrera 4S and the Carrera S hit the roads.

The Targa model produced as of MY 1996 featured a large, electrically adjustable sliding roof made of tinted laminated glass instead of the removable soft top for the first time. The existing roll-over bar could therefore be dispensed with.

The Carrera and Targa models were powered by a new 3.6-litre engine, which initially developed 272 hp and 285 hp as of MY 1996.

If you're in the market for one, below is a list of the price for each 993 variant we have in our database that has sold recently:

Fun fact: a 993 GT2 was used as the safety car in the 1995 F1 season. It makes our list of the top 5 F1 safety cars ever.
