Porsche 993 Carrera 2 Tiptronic S cabriolet 1997

Porsche 993 Carrera 2 Tiptronic S cabriolet 1997


25,620 miles

The last of the air cooled, a perfect for classic 911 with wind in the hair pleasure.

Finding a 993 like this is very rare. It is a car you can look forward to using without worry and kept in good condition, will always be very desirable. Unlike many classics, a Porsche such as this is something you can depend on, anticipate the journey, at any pace you choose. These are really nice to drive.

This 993 presents very, very well both inside and out. It has benefited by being a collector or enthusiasts car throughout its life. This isn’t one that’s travelled through decades of winter salt.

This is the later 285 hp Varioram engine. It has factory specified 18″ Technology lightweight hollow spoke alloys (refurbished in 2020), hardback Sports seats, on board computer, air conditioning and Tiptronic transmission. The 4 speed auto is perfect for this car, it really makes driving a relaxing event, whilst it can react if you decide you want a little more pace. The flat six makes the right noises and could take you on to 168 mph….it’s seriously capable of high-speed, long-distance travel.

Although very low mileage, it has a good service history from new and especially notable is that when it changed hands in 2017, it benefited from a major service that included the gearbox service, all new discs and pads, overhauled calipers, new tyres and wheel alignment. Since then it’s covered a mere 1,300 miles, yet has been serviced again twice (2018 and 2019). We have carried out a further brake fluid change and regassed the AC system (2020).

First supplied by H R Owen, OPC for St Albans in August 1997.

Arctic silver metallic with a dark blue hood and matching leather interior.

Complete with double keys, original book pack with service book and manuals, toll roll, spare wheel etc.

Without a doubt, this 993 is a top Grade 4, it has barely a mark on it. The paintwork measurements suggest it’s all original paint, other than the bonnet which has an invoice for stone chip rectification. It’s very good inside and equally nice underneath and to drive. It is one we are delighted to put our name to and offer our own worthwhile warranty.

It’s so hard to find a 993 like this, they come along only once in a blue moon…… If it suits, pick up the phone before it’s gone.
