1998 porsche 911 993 cabriolet for sale 1
 
 
Fast Facts:

  • The first 911 with a 6spd manual. It was essentially the same G50 5 speed used in the past, but with an extra gear added
  • The rear semi-trailing arm setup found in every 911 prior was thrown out for the 993. In its place is a multi-link setup designed to serve the same purpose as Porsche’s advanced Weissach axle introduced on the 928. The more modern and refined setup found on the 993 can handle lateral forces as well longitudinal forces (rather than just longitudinal). This new rear setup features an elastic 5th link that provides a “kinematic toe effect”. Basically, the suspension can prevent its toe geometry from going wild during hard cornering, preventing the extreme toe-out and off-throttle oversteer that resulted with older suspension designs
  • The 1998 911 concluded fifty years of air cooled Porsche engines (1948 to 1998). A conventional water cooled setup had to take its place, due to emission requirements. Water cooled engines can reach operating temperature after a cold start much faster than an air cooled engine. Engine emissions are highest during warm-up, exposing the major disadvantage of air cooled engines (regarding emissions)
  • Another problem with air-cooled engines is that they cool down much faster than their water cooled counterparts. This means that an air-cooled engine will operate at a lower temperature upon re-start than a water cooled engine (given the same amount of time between shut-off and restart). The result is that air-cooled motors spend more time “warming up” throughout the day than a water cooled motor, resulting in higher emissions
Key Model Year Changes:

  • The final year of the 993, and the last year of the air cooled Porsche. The following year (1999) introduced the water cooled 996
  • 1998 featured virtually no changes from the 1997 model
  • The 993 was only sold for 3 years in the U.S (1995-1998)
