    I went shopping for a 993 Turbo yesterday...

    ...and, boy, I was in heaven! It was Mother's Day weekend, and this year we all met at my sister's in Connecticut. So I "killed two birds with one stone" and managed to fit into the weekend a visit to a couple of nearby Porsche shops with great 911 Turbo's (and other Porsche's) on display. I am seriously looking at either a black/black 1997 993TurboS or a black/cashmere-black 1997 993Turbo. For my interests, the 993Turbo makes more sense, since I would do a 650-700HP 3.8L conversion through Protomotive, a tuner in Arkansas with alot of experience tuning 993TT's (amongst others). And both the 993TT and TTS are tunable to the same levels before engine/clutch/tranny revision is needed. Anyway, here are some pics.:

    First stop, Sloancars, just north of New Haven, Connecticut:

    I was interested in this one, the Iris Blue color looked great in the flesh, especially with the Cashmere interior, but it was just sold:

    So we honed in on the black/black beauty:

    Left rear quarter with rear spoiler and left side intake to rear wheel brakes-unlike on the 996/997TT's, this intake doesn't feed the IC's in the engine bay, rather the IC's get their air from the spoiler. Also note that white car in the background-a 1989 911 Slant Nose Turbo Cab (3.3L 282HP), no less. And this one was purchased new by Andre Agassi in Las Vegas in 1989, one of only 28 of this Turbo Cab variation with the factory slant nose option:

    Note the digital bar display and the odometer-1942, going on 1943-now at 1943 after a quick run around the block:

    Dash with HVAC/HiFi:

    And a Nokia Digital Sound system with controls at driver's side door pocket:

    Re: I went shopping for a 993 Turbo yesterday...

    Wow, those are some great finds! Really too bad that blue 993 Turbo was sold, that's a beautiful color combination!
