|Odometer reading||112,000 miles|
|Estimate||£28,000 - £33,000|
|Result||Sold - £36,960|
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 example is presented in metallic blue with grey leather interior and comes with the desirable manual gearbox. The current owner purchased this car in 2014 and has spent over £20,000 of preventative maintenance work,. This includes a top end engine overhaul by Ninex Independent Porsche Specialist, including new drive belts, replacement of dry sump tank oil drain plug and new engine lid struts. This work came to a total nearly £8,000 in June 2015. Charles Ivey, Porsche Specialist in Fulham, have looked after the car over the last two years with details of their work on file. These models are collectable now and one in this mechanical condition is a great investment.
