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 The standard parts originally made for those chassis were no longer available.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.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
