The 993 series is the last of the air-cooled 911s and believed by many to be the finest of them all. Whatever your view, it certainly offers the most modern driving experience, yet still captures the unmistakable magic and unique feel of the air cooled cars.
This UK supplied right hand drive Carrera 4 manual features the more powerful 285bhp varioram engine and is finished in Midnight blue metallic. A recent fully retrimmed bespoke interior of light leather with blue alcantara accents has been fitted to this car at a cost of £11,000! The fresh new interior gives a real light, airy feel to the cabin and with the use of chrome details and blue accented stitching it gives the car a more modern, luxurious feel. An upgrade which really lifts the look of the interior over a tired, 25 year old example.
It has covered 81,000 miles from new with a continuous service history. Also with all its correct tools, books and factory stickers still in place.
The 993 was the last of the air-cooled era of the 911 and reputably the car that nearly broke the company because of the incredible quality engineered into every variant.
The water-cooled models that followed were a commercial success and Porsche were soon back in the black, but that magic honed from granite feel of the 993 would never feature in a 911 again.
On the road this 993 hides its 25 years of age with remarkable ease, still feeling taught, powerful and agile, whilst modern features such as ABS, power steering, airbags, air conditioning and 4WD ensure it is a modern classic that can still be used as Porsche intended.
