    Re: Porsche 911 Turbo - 997 Turbo vs 993 Turbo

    Assuming that we're talking about stock models, the 993 Turbo isn't that great compared to the 997 Turbo. I drove a 993 Turbo S two years ago, not easy to be really fast in this beast without crashing it. Different story with the 997 Turbo, although the 997 Turbo behaves pretty nasty with PSM turned off and Sport Chrono active, even compared to the 993 Turbo S.

    I like the 993 Turbo a lot, I think that it was the milestone in the sportscar world at the time Porsche put this car on the market. I  wish the 997 Turbo would have been the same milestone when it came out but it wasn't, especially the competition from Ferrari but also Lamborghini was much stronger than it was during the 993 Turbo introduction more than a decade ago. 

    I'm not sure why somebody would compare the 993 Turbo to the 997 Turbo, there is no comparison possible. Both are completely different beasts in my opinion.

    Milestones are just very rare nowadays Im afraid...its all been done.  That being said I'm sure the 997 turbo in 10-15 years will be good value for the dollar machine and will be looked upon as a classic of its time.  And even classic is hard to come by nowadays.

    As RC said, they feel very dissimilar to drive. I love them both and end up driving my 993tt more often than the 997tt

    Like you Eugene I have and like both but when I was thinking I had one too many it was the 997TT that I was the least attached to and ready to sell.. 

    Re: Porsche 911 Turbo - 997 Turbo vs 993 Turbo

    I own a 996 and 993 Turbo, both modded to the hilt. I tested a 997 Turbo, faster than my 996 Turbo when stock, but no more. My 993 Turbo, now raw and very fast, is easily my all-time favorite car. It has the Protomotive setup completed by John Gulino of Protosport in New Jersey-top quality tuning, including the 3.8L engine rebuild/conversion. We are doing a "winter upgrade" over the next month to bring power from about 650 to 700+ by changing the turbo's from Garrett GT2871R's to GT3076R's with a wastegate mod, plus we will change the motor mounts to motorsport mounts (I pulled one last summer), all the while sticking with the OBDII programming so I can pass NYState emissions. Can't wait for spring.
