993 clutch never replaced

Recommended Posts

Am looking at a 993 with over 110,000 miles on what I am told is the original clutch, is this possible? I have test drove the car and there is no slippage or noises from the clutch. I am just trying to figure out how much longer I have before a new one will have to come into play? Car is as clean as they come and has been very well serviced its whole life.

Would love some feedback.

170K (no rebuilt engine, same clutch and pressure plate) and still running like a champ (knock on wood).


Ken, I am going to send Loren a PM and nominate you Renntech forum member of the month! You da man! Good job. :)

Thank you so much. You've really made my day. Can't stop smiling.

Good to hear! My clutch style is to slip it minimally,even if it slightly bogs the engine.Ferrari mechanics say "engage it and be done with it..." Slipping,while smoother will shorten clutch life substantially.

Some 993 have already replaced clutch at 100000 miles, some other not at 150 000 miles...

It depend on the use of the car, of the road (highway or a lot of traffic or downtown traffic....) and of course depend of the driver behavior.

For me, only one answer, plan a budget to replace it ;)
