Total 911 issue 147 on sale now
The Porsche 993 Turbo’s ascension to greatness has been met with nearly universal approval from the Neunelfer community. Over the last few years, it has been clear that the last air-cooled Porsche 911 was the latest legend in the making.
Therefore, in Total 911 issue 147 – on general sale from today – we’ve dedicated not one but two whole features to the turbocharged icon. The first is our new ‘Porsche Index’ article, this issue focussing solely on the Porsche 993 Turbo.
We chart the model’s storied history, tell you what it’s like to drive and own, and get expert opinion from renowned marque specialists to see where they think the 993 Turbo’s future on the Porsche 911 market lies.
On top of this, Lee flew to Germany to get behind the wheel and tell the story of what is believed to be the last remaining ‘Werks Prototyp’ 993 Turbo, built by Porsche in 1993, a full two years before the car was launched to the public.
Away from the Porsche 993 Turbo, Total 911 issue 147 also features an alpine road trip with a Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0, proving that to truly enjoy Weissach’s seminal creation you need to get out and drive it.
There’s also an interview with new Porsche boss, Dr Oliver Blume and we reunite two of the original Porsche 911 Carrera RSR IROCs for an unforgettable test drive.
