The 1995 Porsche 991 Turbo (993) is the third generation of the 911 Turbo series, which was brought to life in 1995.

The 993 was the first 911 Turbo to be twin-turbocharged and to feature all-wheel-drive. In order to compensate for its huge increase in power, larger brakes and an updated suspension were added to the car.

The large spoiler on the 993 was fitted to improve its aerodynamics, making it more stable at high speeds. Two intercoolers had to be placed above the engine, as the twin-turbochargers took too much room.


Need for Speed: High Stakes

The 911 Turbo (993) appears in Need for Speed: High Stakes as a class AA racer and as a police car. The racer variant can be acquired for $175,000 in the career mode.

Among every class AA car, the Porsche 911 Turbo has the best handling. It can also keep up with the more powerful cars, albeit at the cost of top speed.


In the PC release, the 911 Turbo police variant is available in Hot Pursuit from the start, and is driven by the police along the Rocky Pass & Summit tracks.

In the PlayStation release, the police variant is unlocked after arresting 10 speeders with the BMW M5 police car. It can be used in the Australian and New Zealand PlayStation releases to unlock the Lamborghini Diablo SV police car.

The PC release features all variants with the same lightbar as well as a North America police livery, but the PlayStation release features an individual lightbar for the Germany, France, and United Kingdom liveries.

Race Bred Pro Cup

The Race Bred Pro Cup variant appears in the PlayStation release and can be unlocked by winning the Porsche Pro Cup


The Bonus variant appears in the PC release and can be unlocked by winning the Porsche Pro Cup, or alternatively, upon winning the Pro Arcade Tournament.

Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed

The 911 Turbo (993) appears in Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed as a class 1 vehicle in the Modern Era category.

Similar to the Porsche 911 Turbo (964) 3.6, the 993 Turbo has quick acceleration. It can easily oversteer in corners like any other variant of the Porsche 993. However, with the 911 GT2 engine lid installed, its handling can be greatly improved.


In the PC release, an unplayable 911 Turbo police car is also featured, in both French and German liveries.
