As the last of the air cooled 911s, the 993 chassis holds a special place in a lot of hearts. From an engineering standpoint, it represents the pinnacle of what an air cooled Porsche should be, from the engine to the suspension, and everything that works in between. Aesthetically, it’s a bit more divisive – it was Porsche’s largest design departure at that point in time, pushing the 911’s design language forward into a new generation.
To put it simply, life has its ups and downs. Each and every one of us is dealt a hand of cards, with some of us landing more advantageous hands than others. As we make our way through the journey of life, it can often seem as though the dealer does his best to do his worst, and it’s those unexpected cards we’re dealt – and how we respond to them – that often wind up defining us most.
