The 993 is something of a Holy Grail for hard-core fans as it blurs the lines between modern and classic 911s. Its air-cooled flat-six harks back to the origins of the iconic sports car, while more up-to-date styling and technology makes for a comfortable machine to live with. It was the first 911 to get a six-speed transmission and only the second to be offered with all-wheel drive.
This particular 993 is a shining example of a well maintained modern classic sports car. Its unblemished exterior is a snapshot of the last time Porsche significantly overhauled the design of its most iconic model.
The car’s silhouette is comprised of soft lines with distinctive Porsche DNA traits in the details. The rounded headlights, that distinctive window line, and those broadened shoulders are all characteristics of the past.
Finished in a rare shade called Mirage, this 993 also features the genuine Porsche Aerokit that adds a front splitter and rear wing to enhance the car’s aerodynamics.
The interior is just as well preserved with its leather seats unmarked and appears to have hardly been sat in. That iconic gauge cluster finished in white is present and correct, as is a proper manual shifter.
Glance behind the front seats and you’ll find a pair of small rear seats that serve as a reminder of just how versatile a 911 is.
Speaking of versatility, being a Carrera 4 means that this 993 has all-wheel drive enabling you to exploit the car’s performance even with our very British weather.
The air-cooled 3.6-litre flat-six heart of this car produces 282bhp and can get the car from 0-60mph in less than 6 seconds. It has covered 53,042 miles and comes with a 12 month Porsche Warranty as well as a Euro Assist Package, yours for £79,750.
This pristine sports car is currently for sale at the Dick Lovett Porsche Centre in Swindon, but you can also see it in the metal at their Porsche Classic Life facility if you’re attending Luftgekühlt this weekend.
