The 993 version of the evergreen 911 is sometimes described as the “King of Porsche”. This book chronicles the development, racing history and all ownership issues of the 993 in tremendous detail. Containing a buyers/owners guide and well over one thousand photographs, this book features incredibly in-depth information about all aspects of the Porsche 993.
This book about the Porsche 993 is the third of a planned six covering a range of Porsche models. This book carries on the tradition established with the author’s first Porsche 911 book (Robert Bentley) which covered the 964 series. Contains absolutely everything a 993 owner needs to know. Every model and version is included. Engines, transmissions, suspension and how to improve the performance are covered as well as the fixes for common problems.
This book really is the essential companion for the 993 owner or would-be owner. No need to ask questions online anymore, the answers are all here.
Review from Porsche Club of America, December 2007
Adrian Streather writes 'The Essential Companion' series – one I have been using a lot this year is the Porsche 993.
This book is a soft bound, 637 page, fully photographed, with only a few drawings. 'The 993 Companion' starts out with factory assembly line photographs, and goes into the history of each model, even detailed technical things found on the extremely rare 993 3.8RS and 993 GT-2.
Even with all of my factory Service Information Manuals and Workshop Manuals, I've found information in Streather's book I can't find in the factory books!
A 996 version is in works now!
