For its 4th generation, Porsche invested heavily within its halo car and produced perhaps the most pivotal 911 to date.

The Type 993 911 Carrera was 80% newer compared to the earlier Type 964 with all new coke bottle style architecture, a much-improved multi-link rear suspension set-up and a heavily worked 3.6 litre engine.

Only from 1996 was VarioRam introduced to the air-cooled 911 engine which improved output to 272hp, pushing air-cooled tech to its definitive capabilities and ultimately, was the last of the breed to leave Stuttgart.

Increasingly collectable and irresistibly drivable, the 993 perfectly blends classic 911 styling with modern tech for a totally engaging drive.

An upright windscreen, small dimensions, retro switchgear and a mechanical gearshift feel deliver that signature classic 911 drive whilst power delivery and razor-sharp chassis responses plant the car to the road asking zero questions before launching you from 0-100kmh in just 5.4 seconds.

Sold new through York Motors in July of 1997 we have a very rare car that was perhaps one of the last 993 Carreras to be delivered and would’ve been a special order from the factory.

Presented in Arctic Silver over special order Chestnut leather interior trim, this very original and rare example has travelled just 112,522 kilometres since new.

Factory options:

• 17" Alloy wheels

• 8-way electrical seat, right

• Automatic speed control

•Sound system

• Wind deflector

• Top-tinted windscreen

• Air conditioner

• CD-radio Becker Porsche CDR-21

Offered in exceptionally original condition, this car has been fastidiously maintained, complete with its original owner’s manual and service booklet documenting a full Porsche dealer and specialist service history. This 993 Carrera is ready to go with its most recent service completed in January 2020.

The air-cooled motor oozes character with its whirring and purring hum and the totally involving drive means you need to put thought into what you’re doing in a way that newer, fly by wire cars can’t offer anymore. Top down, threading winding tree lined escape roads this 911 is the perfect remedy to the daily grind.
