Some say the 933 was the 911 Porsche got just right. After all, it was the last series to have its legendary air-cooled engine. But this was also a model that Porsche desperately needed to get right. It had problems with the 964 and this time around it needed something more aggressive and more inspired — something that more closely represented Porsche’s heritage of quality and attention to detail.
So, designers and engineers went to work on a new kind of 911. They made the 3.6-liter flat six quieter and smoother than ever before and added a sixth gear to the transmission to help improve performance and fuel economy. Suspension and handling were perfected, and the 933 was given an appearance more appropriate to the Porsche’s history and designed to be less expensive and less time-consuming to manufacture. During this time, Porsche’s production process also went through a major overhaul. The overwhelming success of the 933 success is a testament to the success of the model and the new production process that produced it.
The model shown here is a first-year model with original paint and leather interior — soon after arriving to our shop, it was sold to a seasoned collector.
