FOR SALE; LHD // Speed Yellow // Excellent History

This Carrera 2 looks particularly charming in Speed Yellow; a truly complimentary colour to the elegant proportions of the last air cooled 911 and an iconic colour for the 993 model. The bodywork has been detailed in house and carefully prepared resulting in a deep glossy finish, it is nearly all factory paint on metal panels aside from the rear engine lid. There are some light stone chips to the front as you’d expect with it still wearing its original paint. The wider rear arches are in good order, the factory wing film doing it’s job and protecting the paint from marks or further stone chips. Wing mirrors and lights remain crack and moisture free.
The cabin of the 993 has a more refined approach to the positioning of the controls and switches compared with previous models. The plush interior is beautifully assembled, with real quality and craftsmanship synonymous with Porsche design. The leather remains tight and clean with only the light signs of use and age throughout.
Carpet and mat set are in good order whilst door cards, dash fit and operation are excellent and as you would expect for a car that has been well looked after over its low mileage. Modern tech has been added in the form of a Kenwood stereo to allow more day to day usability and connectivity to Bluetooth smart phones.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 3.6 litre is a perfectly elastic powertrain at both ends of the rev range and tractability is at the core of what makes the 993 so user-friendly. When you ignite the flat-six, it’s turbine-smooth and surprisingly quiet at low revs. But push the floor-hinged throttle a little further and the familiar hollow air-cooled bark murmurs satisfyingly around the cabin.
The engine bay presents dry and clean and in perfect mechanical order having had a regular and comprehensive servicing through its life time. The only modification being the rear silencer upgraded to a sports exhaust.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Whether they are a 3 piece split rim or one piece alloy, Cup design wheels always look right at home on the 993. This set presents perfectly having been recently refurbished. Yokohama tyres are matching on all four corners providing excellent road holding and refinement.
The black factory calipers show well with only a light patina commensurate with age. The performance drilled discs and pads fitted have have plenty of friction material remaining and work perfectly in bringing this Porsche to a stop.
This exceptional and vibrant 993 was supplied new to Japan and has been carefully looked after and driven since new, evident from its excellent and very original current condition alongside its comprehensive Japanese service history.
Imported in 2016 it was lucky enough to fall into the hands of its current owner who has cherished and further serviced and spent on the car to ensure it’s in perfect working order. This is annotated in a large history file with most notably its last service and brake fluid change being less than 1000 miles ago in April 2019 ensuring it’s ready to use and enjoy for the next custodian.
