In 1993 Porsche introduced what is regarded by many as the most beautiful 911 of all: the Type 993. Over the years the 911 had received numerous aerodynamic and safety-inspired add-ons, diluting the purity of the original form; the Type 993’s arrival marked a return to basic principles, being recognisably a 911 but one in which all functions had been harmoniously integrated in a truly outstanding example of modern automotive styling. The range offered remained pretty much as before, comprising two- and four-wheel drive models, the legendary Turbo and the Cabriolet convertible, all powered by the latest, 3.6-litre version of Porsche’s perennial flat-six engine.
Supplied new in right hand drive by Lancaster Garages in Colchester on 28th April 1994 this stunning Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet is finished in the rare (for a 993) colour of Guards Red with a full Grey Leather interior. Desirably equipped with Electric Sports Seats, Electric Hood, Electric Windows and Mirrors, Alpine Stereo/CD player, Remote Central Locking with Alarm and Immobiliser and 17” Cup Alloy Wheels.
