THE PORSCHE 911 (993) CABRIOLET

In 1993 Porsche introduced what is regarded by many as the most beautiful 911 of all: the Type 993. Over the years the 911 had received numerous aerodynamic and safety-inspired add-ons, diluting the purity of the original form. The Type 993's arrival marked a return to basic principles, being recognizably a 911 but one in which all functions had been harmoniously integrated in a truly outstanding example of modern automotive styling. Porsche's engineers devised a new light-alloy sub frame with coil and wishbone suspension (an all new multi-link system), putting behind the previous generations' lift-off oversteer and making significant progress with the engine and handling, thus creating a more civilized car and providing an improved driving experience. The 993 was also the first 911 to receive a six-speed transmission. The range offered remained pretty much as before, comprising two- and four-wheel drive models, the legendary Turbo and the Cabriolet convertible, all powered by the latest, 3.6-liter version of Porsche's perennial air-cooled flat-six engine.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This example fine example of the penultimate year of air-cooled 911 production is finished in special paint to sample exterior color 'Ocean Blue Metallic' with an Ash Grey leather interior. Premium options include eight-way power seats, stainless steel door sill-plates, power roof, and seventeen-inch Porsche OEM 'CUP-Design' wheels with crested wheel centers. Presented with fewer than 19,500 reported original miles from new, this Porsche 993 C2 Cabriolet is accompanied by service history with service books stamped and a file of invoices. Original owner's manuals, original pouch, complete tool roll, jack, and original air-compressor are also included. A rare low mileage example of a stunning classic, this penultimate-year 993 Cabriolet is well worth extra consideration.
