 The 993 was the final generation of the air-cooled 911, and as such will always have a special place in the affections of Porsche enthusiasts. It is also widely said to be the last of the 911s that were built whilst engineering integrity overruled accounting pressures at Porsche. Twenty years on, it still looks modern - a truly timeless design. The 993 was launched in the autumn of 1994 and was claimed to be 80% new. The bodywork was altogether more curvaceous, with a number of new panels and the overall look was much smoother and more integrated. Importantly, this new style was still every inch a 911 in the traditional manner, with the profiles of the doors and rear quarter windows remaining unchanged from earlier models.The biggest change under the skin was the new multi-link rear suspension, giving greater driver confidence, less road noise and excellent ride quality. Designed to give a level of passive rear-wheel steering (the 'Weissach effect'), thus controlling the way the suspension behaved under cornering, braking and acceleration, it transformed the 911. It was also the first 911 to be equipped with power steering and an advanced ABS system. The 993 uses essentially the same 3.6-litre engine as the 964, mated to a development of the worthy G50 gearbox, but now with six forward gears or the smooth Tiptronic automatic gearbox. Whereas the Porsche 964 produced 247 bhp, the 993 from 1995 produced 272bhp enabling a top speed of over 150mph and acceleration to match.The Guards Red with Grey Leather Porsche 911 993 Carrera 2 (Tiptronic) that we have the pleasure to present to auction has the dual distinction of being family owned and showing a warranted 40,000 miles from new. First registered to a gentleman in Shropshire on 1st August 1995 the sophisticated dual-function gearbox made this little Porsche eminently drivable and when it was registered in his wife's name on the 31st October 2015. The family also owned a 1996 Rolls-Silver Spur from new up until this year and both the Spur and Porsche were treated to regular oil and filter services by the family's private mechanic.The extensive history file shows a myriad of receipts and the service book shows stamps from Porsche main dealers, bar one in 2005. Recent bills from the Porsche Centre Wolverhampton in June this year amount to £2,379 in exchange for a full service, auxiliary belts, and sundry other items.To conclude, therefore, it is rare to find a find a 993 Carrera 2 with just two owners from the same family and so lightly used, with the indicated mileage at a shade under 40,000 at the time of consignment. Presented to auction freshly serviced with an MOT until April 2019 and a substantial history file.
