- Good history
- Iconic S model
The iconic Porsche 911/993 was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the 964 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 911s for the previous thirty years and thus the end of an era. It 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 and also the then new Tiptronic automatic transmission.
This very nice Targa ‘S’ example of this iconic and revered model, is presented in silver with black leather interior. It has just been serviced by Riemans in Godstone, Surrey at a cost just shy of £3,000 (itemised invoice in history file) which included two new front tyres, replaced lower camshaft covers, gaskets and fixings. An oil service was also carried out and its rear heat exchanger hoses were replaced as was the battery. It is powered by a six-cylinder 3600cc engine mated to a Tiptronic gearbox. The car was delivered to AFN Porsche Chiswick on 15th May 1997 from where it was sold to its first owner. Arguably, one of the best ever Porsche 911’s produced, and even by today standards, certainly no slouch!
