The 993 Targa offers the best of both worlds; Coupe aesthetics and open top motoring. Why they were so rarely ordered is a mystery, probably to do with the cost. However now, in today’s market, these beautiful 911 have a lot to offer the enthusiast.
This 6 speed manual makes it even more unusual as most were ordered with the Tiptronic transmission. Furthermore, it’s in the classic combination of silver with black leather.
Fitted with the 285 hp Varioram unit giving rather good performance and making European touring a breeze at almost any speed. It also has the sports seats, white dials, air conditioning and alloy handbrake and gearshift trims.
First registered in June 1997, supplied by Porsche Cars GB Ltd, Reading, this 993 has had good maintenance throughout and drives very nicely indeed. The last owner has loved his Porsche since 2008 but now it is time to change.
Looking through the history very briefly shows that in the last 16,000 miles it has received: New battery, new front and rear shocks, drop links, dizzy caps and rotors, belts, discs and pads plus the normal routine maintenance and MOT’s. It sports 14 stamps in the service book and has a significant history file.
Overall it is definitely a Grade 3, suitable to enjoy driving, with nothing noted of concern for the future. This 993 presents well; parked in the street we would all say ‘that’s nice’, although upon closer inspection there are a couple of small spots where you have a little blistering of the paint. Priced really sensibly with plenty of scope for improvement as and when you want. Selling like this allows a buyer with a smaller budget to make choices and enables us to turn it around fast (no waiting in the paint shop). The reality is that many people will be happy to enjoy it as it is……..
