Since its introduction it has undergone continuous development, though the basic concept has remained little changed. The engines were air-cooled until the introduction of the Type 996 in 1998. The 993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998, replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches.
Like previous and future generations of the Porsche 911, there were several variants of the car manufactured, varying in body style, engines, drivetrains and included equipment. The external design of the Porsche 993, penned by Englishman Toni Hatter, retained the basic bodyshell architecture of the 964 and other earlier 911 models, but with revised external panels, with much more flared wheelarches and a smoother front and rear bumper design, an enlarged retractable rear wing, teardrop mirrors, but keeping the doors and roof panels.
Delivered new on the 1st March 1995 this lovely right hand drive example is offered with the attractive colour combination of avantime green over black leather interior and is in fantastic all-round condition. Supplied with a comprehensive history file with many bills and receipts as well as the original service and workshop booklets. The car has been kept in a private collection and has been maintained by marque specialists throughout its life. The body work, paint and interior are all in excellent order as is the powerful 3.6 litre flat six which is also in good working condition.
Showing a mere 25,300 miles on the odometer and being a one owner example, this must be one of the best 993’s on the market today. An iconic example of this exceptional marque.
