A NEW APPROACH IN AN AGE OLD BUSINESS+44 (0) 1926 691 141
The 993 was the final generation of air-cooled 911s, and as such will always have a special place in the affections of Porsche enthusiasts. It is also widely said to be the last of the 911s that were built whilst engineering integrity overruled accounting pressures at Porsche. Twenty years on, it still looks modern - a truly timeless design.The 993 was launched in the autumn of 1994 and was claimed to be 80% new. The bodywork was altogether more curvaceous, with a number of new panels and the overall look was much smoother and more integrated. Importantly, this new style was still every inch a 911 in the traditional manner, with the profiles of the doors and rear quarter windows remaining unchanged from earlier models. The biggest change under the skin was the new multi-link rear suspension, giving greater driver confidence, less road noise, and excellent ride quality. Designed to give a level of passive rear-wheel steering (the ‘Weissach effect'), thus controlling the way the suspension behaved under cornering, braking, and acceleration, it transformed the 911. It was also the first 911 to be equipped with power steering and an advanced ABS system. Presented here is a UK right-hand drive 1995 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera 2 Cabriolet with a Tiptronic gearbox supplied by Lancaster Porsche. Finished in the beautiful colour combination of Aventura Green Metallic with a full grey leather interior, this car was registered on 17th February 1995 to its first owner. The car is supplied with hard-backed electric sports seats, electric windows, electric wing-mirrors, remote central locking, and a Kenwood Stereo. The history file includes invoices dating back to 2002 and a raft of MOT certificates confirming its mileage. Maintenance duties have been undertaken by Porsche main agents, as well as marque specialists, with Parr Motorsport carrying out servicing annually since 2008, the last of which was on the 9th December 2016. The service book is now showing 20 stamps in total. In 2016, the car was treated to a full glass out respray and a new canvas hood, ensuring that it now looks absolutely stunning. It's supplied with its original book pack containing the driver's manuals and service book, the spare key, the UK V5c, and an MOT until 9th January 2018. Currently stored professionally and now showing 66,683 miles on the odometer, this 911 has been pampered all of its life and is now ready to find a new home.
