1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Targa S Tiptronic
Item Details
Description

Often regarded as the last of the real Porsches and now the most sought after, the discontinuation of the 993 in 1998 marked the end of the air-cooled versions. Introduced in late 1993 it gained a more rounded style to the bumpers to that of the outgoing 964 and the rear arches became wider to accommodate the wider track that improving the handling. The interior noise levels were reduced and the ride quality improved. Dual flow exhaust, larger cross drilled brakes and improved steering were just a few of the other improvements.

The Porsche 993 Targa offered here is probably the most original available and finished in the stunning combination of Grand Prix White with chestnut brown leather interior. It was purchased by our vendor, a small private collector, some ten years ago after an extensive search for a last of the air-cooled ‘Varioram' examples in this colour combination. He is only the fifth owner and its has only covered 56,990 miles, some 30 miles since the last service by Porsche. There are six service stamps in the book together with original handbooks, drivers manual and service tools.

The supplying dealer was Rivervale Porsche of Brighton. The factory options on this C16 UK supplied Targa included Tiptronic transmission, rear window wiper, leather steering wheel with Tiptronic buttons, tinted screen, computer and air conditioning. The history file contains all 12 previous MOTs to substantiate the low mileage, all handbooks, manuals and service booklet and any relevant invoices for services, etc. The car is currently in the process of undergoing a cherished plate transfer and will be presented to the sale with a new registration number issued by the DVLA, current V5C and a full MOT. 

The Porsche 993 air- cooled variants are now very sought after and correct examples with the history and condition of this example are becoming increasingly rare. Surely the best available.
