1996 993 Cabriolet

The 993 was Porsche's 4th generation of the 911 and its best seller of the series.  This particular model, the cabriolet, produces 272 hp with its variocam technology.  This car is equipped with a Tiptronic S transmission that allows shifting on the floor or with paddles on the steering wheel.  The new headlamps on the car were perhaps its most startling visual feature.  Later, this "look" was seen again in 2005 for the Porsche 997 series and now the new 2012 991 model.
