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 lovely cabriolet example is presented in Arena Red metallic with black leather interior. Its black electrically operated hood is in good condition, as is the interior which has a Light Root wood dashboard, door cappings and part wood steering wheel which were all ordered new from the factory. This detail can be seen on the original order sheet from AFN Guildford which is in the history file. The car comes with air conditioning, electric front seats, Tiptronic S gearbox and its original handbook and service book with 17 stamps in it. This extremely attractive Porsche Carrera is in great condition, with some attributes that make it stand out from the rest and its comprehensive history, it’s surely one of the best examples available.
