EXTERIOR

Beautifully presented in factory 92M Polar Silver Metallic. Having been garaged from new, the usual 993 vulnerable area, including rear screen surround lower panel and front scuttle, show none of the common defects and look superb.

The bodywork has benefitted recently from a full paint restoration and professional machine polish, so now gleams, with no evidence of stone-chips or other blemishes. All lenses and glass remains in fine order, with no crazing or discolouration.

INTERIOR

A highlight of this particular example, the interior remains in remarkable condition, having always been very considerately used, by just one fastidious owner, of over 24 years. . Purposeful and ergonomic, while retaining a high degree of familiarity and comfort.

The five dial binnacle layout is focused, with the committed driver firmly in mind, having clear and immediate displays.

All materials, including the special order Marble Grey “soft look” leather seats, steering wheel and extended dashboard, retain much of their original high quality finish, acquiring only a minimal amount of patination over the last quarter of a century. The centre console, leather gear selector, headlining, door cards and capping are excellent, with switch gear and electrics function correctly. Black carpets are in excellent original condition.

Rear seats, as to be expected, appear virtually unused and by dropping forward afford a very usable, flat stowage area.

WHEELS AND TYRES

All four 18” inch “Turbo Twist Design” 5 spoke alloy wheels remain in excellent order. Centre caps display the coloured Porsche shield on a silver background, duplicated on tyre value caps, all present. The four pot brake callipers are all gleaming bright gloss black, with un-marked Porsche logo, clearly visible in white script.

Tyres are all matching Michelin Pilot Sport N3’s.

Front – 225/40 ZR 18 (92Y)

Rear – 265/35 ZR 18 (97Y). All four tyres provide abundant tread depth, 2020 at the front, with 2022/2020 at the rears.

(Available with excellent set of original 17” inch “Cup Design” alloys if preferred).

THE DRIVE & ENGINE

 The 285 bhp flat six, naturally aspirated 3.6L engine, is accessed, in this instance, via the six-speed manual transmission.

A light alloy sub-fame, coil + wishbone, with an all-new multi-link rear suspension improved the driving experience over the out-going 964 model. Other improvements included dual flow exhaust with twin catalytic converters, larger brakes with drilled discs and a revised power steering.

Performance figures are, as you might expect, impressive, with 0-60 mph achieved in approx 5.4 sec, 0-100 mph in 12,4 sec, and a top speed of 168 mph, you may struggle slightly to achieve such numbers in reality of course.

Steering, suspension and braking all seemed to perform effectively during our Test Drive, as did the engine, which starts readily, with no excessive smoke, and delivers plenty of urgent performance.

Generally considered a high point of air-cooled Porsche design, from the cultured pen of Yorkshireman Tony Hatter, the flowing lines of the 993 Coupe subtly retain the lineage and DNA of previous 911’s while presenting a clean, modern and more compact version of the Stuttgart classic.

A fine example of a manual 993 Carrera Coupe, with just one private owner for 25 years, the majority of servicing by the original supplying Porsche main dealer, and with fewer than 42k miles!! Driving in its purest and most enjoyable form, surely a rare opportunity.

We would highly recommend an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
