Like a lot of today's Porsche 993 owners I purchased my car used. I was very careful in my selection, did a lot of research, purchased a Porsche Buyers Guide and made sure the car had a very thorough service history. Amongst the things I was looking for to accompany my purchase was original documentation (window sticker, owners manual, etc.) While I was very fortunate and found a very nice example of a 1997 Porsche 993 C4S I still didn't get all the documentation that was delivered to the very first owner. As it turns out, one of the items that new 993 owners received was a ten minute long video that introduced them to Porsche and answered a number of frequently asked questions about all 911 models and some specific to the 993. A broadcast of the video is below for your enjoyment.
Last week I posted about 10 Things you might not know about the Porsche 993. The video below, narrated by Patrick Stewart (of Star Trek fame) and hosted by Hurley Haywood (of Porsche endurance racing fame) is very informative and answered a few additional esoteric questions I had always wondered about. Are any of you the original owner of your 993? Do you have an original VHS copy of this tape? If so, please get in touch with me and let me know as I would love to get a copy.
