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 911s ever produced from Stuttgart, this car was the last to use the air cooled flat-six engine that had powered 911s 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 993 was the first generation 911 to have standard six-speed manual transmission. The Carrera, Carrera S, Cabriolet and Targa models (2WD) were available with a Tiptronic four-speed automatic transmission which was first introduced in the 964.

First registered on 1st August 1996, this fantastic example of the final air cooled 911 has only covered an incredible 36,170 miles in its 25 year life. The accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms that the car was delivered new to Stratstone Porsche in Midnight Blue Metallic with a dark blue hood and optional extras including 17” ‘New Cup’ design wheels, top tinted windscreen, immobiliser and a Sony CD radio tuner. Unchanged from its factory ordered specification, this must be one of the lowest mileage examples in existence. The car’s history file shows every MoT test certificate from 2003 onwards, as well receipts for maintenance carried out and copies of the stamps from its service book. In the nicely presented history file is also a list showing all of the cars services and the mileages at each from new. Supplied with a fresh MoT test certificate valid through to February 2023 and two new rear tyres, the car has covered just over 100 miles since its last service at Porsche Brooklands in 2021. The vendor reports the car to run and drive just as you would expect a car of its pedigree to and is only selling due to lack of use, having covered less than a thousand miles in his entire ownership.

Supplied with V5C registration document, MoT test certificate valid until February 2023, service history file, past MoT test certificates and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. A rare opportunity to own a low mileage, unmodified design classic that was the evolutionary pinnacle of Porsche’s legendary air cooled flat-six.
