We are very proud to offer this beautiful, modern classic 911 (993) Carrera 2 Tiptronic for sale here at Canford Classics. Painted in Iris Blue Metallic with a Marble Grey and Midnight Blue Leatherette interior, this complementary combination enhances the timeless lines of the 993. This car has been well maintained and cared for by its current owner, who has owned it for nearly four years.
Powered by the legendary air cooled, flat six engine (M64) the 285 bhp is transferred to the rear wheels via the four-speed Tiptronic gearbox, with a manual gear change override function on the steering wheel.
First registered in September 1996, with eight previous owners, this 993 comes complete with its Service/Handbook pouch which contains the original Handbook and the Guarantee/Maintenance book that has been regularly stamped by OPCs and Porsche Specialists, along with numerous service and parts invoices to support. Also included is the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity which shows the optional equipment, including Tiptronic S gearbox, stunning Sports Seats, Rear Wiper, Top Tint Windscreen and Sunroof. This is all supported by the original under bonnet paper sticker that is still in situ.
With an odometer reading of just 71019 miles from new this unmolested, low mileage car has been fastidiously serviced and maintained, with rectification work carried out as and when needed. For example, in the last three years, the car has benefited from works including the cooling fan hub bearing, rear main oil seal, gaskets (chain covers, valve covers and rear cover) distributor caps and rotors, distributor drive belt, rear discs, pads and handbrake shoes. Along with the refurbished wheels, this car is ready to be driven and enjoyed.
The timeless lines of this 911 are in excellent condition and show no sign of any previous bodywork and for a twenty four year old car, the paintwork is in remarkable condition. The car comes with its original 17-inch Cup II alloy wheels which are pristine with no kerb damage. The front indicator lenses and side repeaters have been changed for clear items, but these are easy to return to original if desired. Can you picture yourself behind the wheel?
Inside the cabin, the Marble Grey Sports Seats with contrasting hard backs are fully operational along with all of the vehicle electrics. The in car entertainment comes courtesy of a radio/CD player
The 993, being the last of the air-cooled 911s, is widely seen as the true example of a modern classic, combining the classic 911 characteristics and sound with more sophisticated chassis dynamics, making this particular car (in its untouched form) highly desirable. If you are new to the Porsche market, or an “old hand” looking for a modern classic an original car like this could be the car for you to enjoy.
