If you ask Porsche purists what model they dream of owning, many will passionately tell you “the 911 Turbo from the 933 series”. Melding beautiful curves with exhilarating performance, it was the last of the air-cooled Porsches and the last of the handbuilt 911s, making it the last of the true Porsches as far as purists are concerned.

Porsche put special effort into making the 933 series as irresistible as possible because only higher sales would save the carmaker from an impending financial crisis in the early 1990s. Fortunately, Porsche succeeded spectacularly, creating its most celebrated series ever with models of phenomenal quality and performance that sold exceptionally well.

The turbocharged models with all-wheel drive are especially desirable. Their powerful, 3.6-liter horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engines produce 408 (PS) horses that sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds — fast even by today’s heady standards.

Performance figures rival those of the 959 supercar. But the power comes on smoothly with no turbo lag or sudden boost, and there are oodles of torque for practical everyday driving. A six-speed manual transmission puts the power at your command, while electronic engine management squeezes maximum power from every drop of fuel.

Handling is superb thanks to a multi-link suspension that dramatically reduces the snap oversteer of previous generations and a lightweight, 959-style AWD system that improves grip and stability, especially on slippery road surfaces. Highly efficient braking is provided by large disc brakes in 18-inch wheels with hollow spokes and low-profile tires.

While instantly recognizable as a 911, the body is smoother with more integrated headlights and bumpers than in previous models. The rear is also accented with wider wheel arches and a big fixed wing.

The interior is comfortable and relatively quiet with luxurious leather seats and trim. Resembling the interior of the 964 series, it features the same no-nonsense instrument panel but more storage space in the forward compartment.

The silver 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo (993T) with AWD in the photograph was recently acquired at a reasonable price by our dedicated team in Japan. Meticulously cared for down to the galvanized undersides, it brings luxury to the 911 driving experience with its soft leather, sunroof and power amenities.

Only six thousand or so 911 Turbos from the 933 series were ever produced (1995-1998) and examples like this one with solid service histories and low miles are in strong demand around the world.

  • review rating 5  A few months ago I set out on my goal of importing a vehicle from Japan through an auction. After tons and TONs of research and countless emails, I decided to use Japan Car Direct as my exporter in Japan. From the beginning of my interactions with JCD, I was thoroughly impressed. My contact, Yoshi, was amazing...definitely a huge asset to the JCD team. He answered all of my questions promptly, translated dozens of auction sheets for me, and advised me of what to watch out for when looking for a vehicle. He was beyond helpful! I picked up my Kei truck at the port in Newport News a few weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased. Since then, the truck has made it to its final home in Charlottesville, VA on my farm. Yoshi and the other guys at JCD are now my go to team for more of these soon. Thanks again JCD and keep doing what you guys do! You all are the real deal.

    review rating 5  Since a kid the FD RX7 has always been a dream car but i didn't pursue it till i graduated high school but the prices just for the shell over here in california was over 15k!! I kept looking around until I decided i would just import one. I found JCD while looking for the top 5 importers you could trust and they stood out more than all the other ones, and for a couple months of more research on their page until I ultimately decided I would go through them. Although this was my first time getting a car from Japan and having an endless amount questions spanning a couple hundred emails until it would freeze up and i had to make a new email thread .. Mathew always answered every question and helped me though every step. I didn't have all the funds in the beginning but they were very patient with it until i was fully ready, then after a month of having Matt give his thought on some of the FDs i was looking at we finally won the auction for a 94 Efini type R Fd3s. As we picked it up from Long Beach till the drive home I couldn't believe that it was here and soo much better just looking at the picture but i defiantly would recommend JCD to anyone looking to import their dream car too and and want to thank matt and the whole team with getting me my RX7.

  • review rating 5  I'd been looking to buy an RF series Honda Stepwagon to convert into a mini camper for a while but the UK prices always seemed too high. I had joined a few JDM import sites to get an idea of auction prices and costs (including Japan Car Direct) but just couldn't bring myself to take the next step, it seemed such a risk ! Finally after reading so many good reviews for JCD (and Mathew in particular) I took the plunge and contacted Mathew. After he answered my many questions regarding costs, fees etc I felt confident enough to pay the deposit and start hunting the Japanese auctions for my Steppy. My budget for the Steppy was pretty low (pathetic even !) but I felt Mat still put the same effort into replying to my questions and queries as he would have done if my budget had been into the tens of thousands. The result was I now have a very tidy Stepwagon with lower mileage than any vehicle I've ever owned, I've paid far less for it then I would have done buying in the UK and I've got a bigger budget now for the camper conversion. I wouldn't hesitate to buy through them again, and hope to do so soon.

    review rating 5  5 star experience from start to finish. Transparent and easy process, and Mat was very patient to answer plenty of questions I had during the purchase! Can’t wait to do it again because the Japanese cars from this era are pure automotive art and these guys hold the keys to the museum!

    review rating 5  After an initial inquiry several years ago, I still wanted to get a Japanese Delica or Hiace. Matthew was immediately in contact and helped with all the details. His videos were perfect for my search. Matthew was able to answer all of my questions and my wife and I were able to make decisions based on the great information he provided. I would recommend Japan Car Direct to anyone interested in getting the right car at the best price.

  • review rating 5  All I can say about the experience is AMAZING! I worked with Matthew and he was helpful through the whole process of bidding, purchasing, and shipping the car to me.

    review rating 5  All around exceptional experience! Matt was great to work with and guided me through the entire process with ease. As a first timer, importing was a bit nerve racking but JCD did a great job providing a cool little truck I can enjoy here in Delaware. I look forward to picking up the next toy/vehicle through them.

    review rating 5  The experienced, grizzled veterans of the import scene. They were very accommodating with all my questions and concerns. It was my first time importing, so everything was confusing and intimidating, but I'm happy to report everything went as planned! I'm definitely calling them back when I finally come up with an excuse to import another!

    review rating 5  Working with Mathew and his team was an absolute pleasure. I went from never knowing you could import your own vehicle to owning my own Suzuki Cara within 6 months. Mathew was so helpful and completely transparent with me during the entire process. We spoke on the phone and via email and he helped me pick the perfect car exactly within my requirements. He dealt with my excitement and inexperience with patience and understanding. I couldn't be happier with my experience and will absolutely use Japan Car Direct again when it's time for another project. I highly recommend Mathew and Japan Car Direct.

    review rating 5  Just purchased my second car through Japan Car Direct. Could not be more pleased with their customer service. Matt went above and beyond to help me find the right car. Translating countless auction sheets, messaging sellers, requesting vehicle inspections, putting up with me and my requests well after his time in the office, etc. I can happily and honestly say that I would recommend this company to anyone looking to purchase a car from Japan and that you will not be dissappinted. Very kind, helpful and professional. Can’t wait for vehicle number 3.
