A 993 Carrera 4 is still a formidable performance car, even more than 20 years on. In the right hands a 993 is more than capable of hanging with modern performance cars. The white Carrera 4 3.6 appears to be track prepared, with stripped carpets and a few other visible mods. The car chiefly benefits from the elusive “driver mod.” The driver’s car control on the challenging Spa-Francorchamps circuit is nothing short of impressive, and includes a lengthy cat-and-mouse with a Cayman GT4.
A Fast 993 With a Faster Driver at Spa-Francorchamps
The driver in this video handily dispatches a number of fairly potent performance cars, ranging from Audi S4s to e46 BMWs. When he catches a bright yellow Cayman GT4 a fantastic game of cat-and-mouse begins. The Cayman outruns the 993 on the straights, though the older car handily out-brakes and carries more momentum than the Cayman in many places. For an apparently streetable car (note the lack of roll cage), this 993 and its driver make a very impressive package.
