The 1993 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 61st Grand Prix of Endurance, and took place on 19 and 20 June 1993.

The race was won by Peugeot Talbot Sport, with drivers Geoff Brabham, and Le Mans rookies Eric Hélary and Christophe Bouchut completing 375 laps in their Peugeot 905 Evo 1B. Brabham became just the third Australian to win the French classic after Bernard Rubin in 1928, and Vern Schuppan in 1983.

A class for Grand Touring (GT) style cars was included for the first time since the 1985 race.[1] With the extra class, the entry list expanded from 30 cars in 1992 to 48 in 1993.

The GT-class was originally won by a TWR Jaguar XJ220C driven by John Nielsen, David Brabham and David Coulthard, but the victory was revoked when the XJ220C was disqualified a month later after a steward complained that the racing Jaguars were not running catalytic converters like the road going version. Although this was within the rules — no other car ran catalytic converters either — and Jaguar won its appeal (supported by the FIA), they were nonetheless disqualified as they had — according to the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO — the race organisers) - not lodged their appeal in time.
