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.
This lovely left hand drive example has the extremely attractive black/red leather interior, with a manual gearbox, giving this very desirable model a sportier feel. The car has full Porsche service history and was last serviced on the 24th March 2015. It has been Italian registered from new.
These models which are the last of the air cooled 911s which are now extremely desirable and still provide the Porsche enthusiast or collector an exciting drive. Certainly not an opportunity to be missed, an iconic example of this exceptional marque.
