1993 PORSCHE 965 TURBO 3.6L 360HP /156500 €

History

The first generation of Porsche 911 Turbo appeared in 1975, with the internal code 930. 
It evolved in parallel with the second generation of Porsche 911. This evolution has continued until the current generation, with the same major technical evolutions as the Atmospheric model: transition to liquid cooling, multi-valve, direct injection and evolution of gearboxes.

After the renewal of the normal 911, which becomes the 964 type, Porsche waits about a year before launching the Turbo version in 1990. 
This generation saw two different versions:
The 3.3  L  (320  hp at 5 750  rpm) min  / 450  Nm  at 4,500  rpm  ) and the 3.6  L  (360  hp at 5,500  rpm  / 520  Nm  at 4,200  rpm ). 

These two versions are differentiable by their name, respectively 964 Turbo and 965 Turbo. The latter has often been considered by purists as one of the most difficult to drive.
Neither of them offered any driving assistance except ABS, and were strict propulsions with a limited slip differential. 

The 3.3 L version accelerates from 0 to 100  km/h  in 5 seconds, while the 3.6 Lversion only requires 4.8  s .
