The Porsche 993 marks a real break in the 911 history: The “eleven” built between 1993 and 1998 was the last 911 with an air-cooled boxer engine. All generations afterwards rolled off the production line with a water-cooling system. Today Johann Ferstl owns one of the last air-cooled Porsche 911. And as so often with classic Porsche models, this nine-eleven also has an interesting history.
Why the Ferstl family decided on the 993 is such an episode. “My wife was actually the trigger,” reveals Johann Ferstl with a smile. “Our neighbour bought herself a Porsche Boxster. My wife was of the opinion that she would like such a car too”.
