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.

First registered on 29th April 1996, this fantastic example of the final air-cooled 911 is privately owned and, importantly, is the two-wheel variant boasting the manual gearbox for what can be considered the purists 993 driving experience. Presented in metallic blue with matching blue mohair hood, this example has covered a mere 54,573 miles from new. According to the DVLA records this example has had just three previous keepers and a valid MoT test certificate until February 2024. In the nicely presented history file is a comprehensive service record and this convertible boasts a recent service with Porsche specialists, Porsche Torque in Uxbridge. The rest of the history file is just as impressive and shows a good degree of maintenance and care. 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. A rare opportunity to own a low mileage, unmodified design classic that was the evolutionary pinnacle of Porsche’s legendary air-cooled flat-six.
