Such a stunning guise the 993, and in Turbo, heavenly.

You'll have to forgive my ignorance of different 911 variations, but the 993 is really the only 911 I like.

Can't tell you why, just like it, I believe it was the last air cooled 911? But that's not why I like it, if I could have one with a more modern water cooled engine and drivetrain etc, that's what I'd have (theoretically of course, no 911 is actually on my dream car shopping list).

The one that replaced it, 996? Not keen on that at all, most of it looks ok, but those Boxster headlights cheapen it massively, looks too obviously cobbled together from a parts bin (albeit a Porsche parts bin, which is clearly nothing like a GM or VAG parts bin).

I guess my perfect 911 would be the front of the 993 cut-n-shut onto the rest of a 996.

Surely it would be a 994.5?

Actually, you may know the car I'm about to refer to, possibly. When I lived up in Auld Reekie from '05-'10, I saw, just twice, and both times (dry days too) on the by-pass, a very late ('98) and very rare jet black  993 Turbo S. Concours condition too.

Just had to google 997, yeah it's better than the 996 but, dunno, just prefer the look of the front of the 993.
