This 993 Carrera 2 S is one of our all time favourites.

The Arena red metallic paintwork, especially when its in this stunning condition, suits the curvaceous lines of this Turbo bodied Porsche. It’s a colour which comes to life in the sunshine with a glowing, lustrous shine.  Black leather interior with all the unique 2 S details; the full wide body with two piece rear spoiler, the gunmetal finish to the handbrake, the gearstick, door entries and the instruments. Plus 18″ Technology hollow spoke alloys, sunroof, air conditioning and rear wiper.

This 993 benefits from an outstanding, rock solid maintenance history, with 19 Official Porsche Centre stamps, most recently in May 2019.

It is worth noting that this 911 has had over £3,500 spent on upgrades with Center Gravity in Warwickshire, the well-established experts for any Porsche suspension changes. Following the fitment of engine mounts, M033 spec dampers and Hartech lower wishbones, the ride height, geometry, corner weights, castor and camber were tweaked and re-tweaked to perfection to create an improved stance and superior handling.

First supplied in April 1997 by Official Porsche Centre Stratstone of Wilmslow, it comes with its original book pack with service book and driver’s manual, large maintenance file with invoices and MOT certificates, both keys, original tool roll, spare wheel and jack plus a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche.

Take it for a blast on your favourite B road and the value of all that suspension work becomes apparent. It is precise, rewarding and communicative with the 285 bhp Varioram air cooled 3.6 making all the right noises….. any one that loves driving will be thrilled with this one.

Only 251 RHD manual coupes were made during the 2 year production run of this wide wheel-arched, rear wheel drive 911; Porsche’s final air-cooled 911 masterpiece. You’ll be hard pushed to find another with the optimum good looks, history and provenance that this one possesses. It’s a solid Grade 4.

Values of this particular model have been proven in the last 5 years and it’s not difficult to understand why. A limited production 911, the last of the air cooled, with outstanding looks and providing a fabulous driving experience. Along with the proven durability and ease of maintenance of a normally aspirated 993, it certainly gets our vote!

It's so good, we made a video....
