Lot 205 - 1995 Porsche 911/993 Carrera 2
|Odometer reading||138,169 miles|
|Estimate||£28,000 - £36,000|
The Porsche 993 was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the 964 generation of the iconic 911 model and was built until 1998. Regarded by many as the best generation of 911's ever produced from Stuttgart, this car was the last to use the air cooled flat six engine that had powered 911's for the previous thirty years. The 993 was offered in a number of guises and specifications during its production life including two and four wheel drive trains, known as Carrera and Carrera 4 respectively, the Targa body was an option and the flagship Turbo model now offered four wheel drive making it an extremely fast car.
This automatic example, presented in metallic blue with contrasting grey leather, is in very good condition and has been clearly cherished by its previous owner. Originally registered to a Mr. Armstrong on 14th August 1995, this example was supplied by Parwood Porsche in Kent. The car has been comprehensively serviced with no less than 12 service stamps in the original service booklet; eight from main dealers, before care was handed over to Autostrasse with the most recent service at 136,100 by Braithspeed in Stoke-on-Trent. Recent works also includes new front springs and dampers in 2016. Accompanied by a new MoT test and all handbooks, this entirely capable yet comfortable example is offered in great condition. 993 Porsches have seen a meteoric rise in values in the last 18 months and, being the last air cooled 911, this trend is set to continue. It would be fair to say this lovely Carrera 2 would be a safe place to invest your money and a lot of fun in the meantime.
