The Porsche 993 was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the 964 generation of the iconic 911 models 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. It was offered in a number of guises and specifications during its production life including two and four-wheel drive, known as Carrera and Carrera 4 respectively with the targa roof an option.
First registered in August of 1996 and acquired by our vendor in October of 1997, he has owned and cherished this example for some 21 years. This car is presented in metallic turquoise with black leather trim and upgraded Porsche Kevlar-backed sports seats. The Targa has been privately owned and thus cared for impeccably since new, with a fabulous service record using only Lancaster AFN Porsche until 2002, when the maintenance and care switched to Camtune. They later became Porsche Service Centre Byfleet and know the car inside out and who the vendor trusts implicitly. The car is in very good order throughout, upon testing, all of the electronics performed as they should and the car started and idled with no known faults, something, having reviewed the history, was not a surprise. Our vendor confesses that if it were not for his ailing health he would never sell this car and we can see why. All tool kits and handbooks are present alongside the comprehensive history file with every invoice, from new, relating to the cars care. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a fabulous car from what can be considered the ideal owner, diligent and caring for this Targa 911, without consideration for cost.
