However there was a problem if the shock absorbers became defective. The standard parts originally made for those chassis were no longer available. But
Thanks to modern technology, the new dampers are even better than the originals in some aspects. Because the new technology provides the balance between even finer settings and achieving the original interpretation of sport and comfort. After all, nothing has been left to chance in the new design. The
This understanding has resulted in a technology that combines the latest knowledge with the highest

To compensate for the lateral forces on the struts at high cornering speeds, the front axle setting has been changed to upside-down technology together with single-tube gas pressure dampers. The piston rod is now supported at the bottom of the damper. The cartridge projects from the top of the working cylinder which also contains the gas pressure cushion.
The single-tube gas pressure damper is installed in the conventional position: chromiumplated damper rod at the top, gas cushion at the bottom. As learned from decades on the racetracks of this world. However, a whole new way of thinking was involved in establishing the damper characteristics – bundles of small round steel plates were stacked together and fitted in the damper as valve bodies. The material composition? Well, that’s a secret.
To get that original driving experience, there are two versions available: one for the 993 and one for the 993

Please note that the shock absorbers must always be replaced for each axle or – depending on the vehicle equipment – also completely for both front and rear axles.

Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
