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.
This stunning example was first registered on 1st August 1995 and it is presented in excellent metallic Polar Silver with classic grey leather interior which has recently been renewed and thus unmarked. Treated to a new hood in blue, this example was specified new from the factory with the lowered chassis, sports seats and wind deflector, all of which are detailed on the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity supplied with the car. The car has recently benefitted from new rear tyres and a new rear silencer in March 2019, it also boasts a tonneau cover and two sets of keys. Our private owner, a Porsche enthusiast and club member, purchased the car in 2015 and has since serviced the car with well-known specialists, Northway Porsche, with 19 stamps found in the original stamped maintenance book and continuation book, due to the original being full, with the most recent service in October 2020. Contained within the large history file are invoices for new ignition leads in 2017 and a clutch and slave cylinder in 2016, both under 1,000 miles ago, these are coupled to a current MoT test certificate valid until October 2021. A car that has been garaged and is in stunning order throughout with a fabulous history, this is truly a gem of a 993. This is one of the best of the last air-cooled 911's offered with a fitting 911 registration plate included with the car.
