Description

One of only 49 UK C16 spec cars and only two owners from newAn incredible, warranted 7,037miles from new with afull service historyFinished in Guards Red, the most traditional and arguably best colourTotally original factory paintwork. Original engine, gearbox, and mechanicalcomponentsBack in 1995/1996, only 49 people were lucky enough to get their hands on, what has become over time, the spiritual successor to theoriginal 2.7 Carrera RS. It was an amazing car, not least because it was effectively their first car for the now-famous Carrera Cup racing series, fitted with road tyres!So it was both lightweight and powerful, with a very spartan stripped out cockpit and seriously track-focused suspension and brakes. Lacking any sound deadening it fed back to the driver every aspect of the road. A famous journalist commented at the time not only would you instantly know if you accidentally ran over a frog, but you would also be able to tell what sex it was!!This extremely rare, C16 UK-car was supplied in Guards Red with black upholstery and has had only one owner prior to our vendor. Confirmed by a Porsche GB technician - it retains totally original factory paintwork, and it also retains all the original engine, gearbox,mechanical and body components.Having covered just over 7,000 miles from new it is as near to a new car as you are ever likely to get.Owned by our private vendor-client for the past 11years, it has covered a nominal mileage in that time but still been serviced annually. The history file tells us that it has been SORNd since 2016, so apart from the annual trip for maintenance, it has just rested in his bespoke facility amongst the others in his amazing collection.This is one for the serious collector and almost certainly unrepeatable at thismileage.1996 Porsche 911 (993) RShttps://youtu.be/wok6x8_iio4 false
