I said before that RS was special among Porsche. But the letters T, U, R, B, and O have special meaning too. Not only does Turbo designate the motor, but it is a trim level unto it’s own as well, as we’ll see later. The 993 Turbo was the first series production 911 to have all wheel drive as well as twin turbos. I said before you can’t say 993 911 without saying UT, and as you can see in these pics, you can’t say UT without saying “melting wheel.” For those not in the know, if I were to grab this 20+ year old model by the wheels, my fingerprints would be embedded into the paint as it never fully cured.
