Porsche 993 (911) Targa manual 1997


Please slide images to view gallery.


Air cooled classic offering the best of both worlds.

One of the 333 RHD 993 Targa featuring the 6 speed manual gearbox.

A Targa model has featured in the 911 line-up since 1967, but for the 993, Porsche introduced an updated version of the popular open-air variant. Instead of manually removing the roof section, the 1996 model saw the introduction of an all-electric sliding glass panel to bring the outside in; perfect for a sunny day. When the weather’s not so great, close the roof and sunblind and you’re immediately back in cosy coupe territory.

This Ocean blue metallic example was originally supplied by AFN, OPC London in January 1997.

The interior is smart in two-tone Marble grey and dark blue.

Wearing its correct Targa-only 17 inch split-rim alloys wheels.

Air conditioning and a rear wiper.

Continental CD/DAB/USB unit with Bluetooth connectivity.

Benefiting from life-long maintenance records revealing an uninterrupted service history (19 in total), a selection MOT certificates and a folder of receipts and invoices.

The most recent was carried out less than 500 miles ago; a major service including spark plug replacement, a brake fluid change, new drive belts and fresh gearbox oil.

Complete with double keys, original book back with service book and driver’s manual, plus tool roll, jack and spare wheel.

With 285 bhp from the air-cooled Varioram 3.6, a 993 will always be an attractive proposition, and the rarity of being a ‘best-of-both-worlds’ Targa manual surely means it will only ever become more desirable?
