Description

I am selling this wonderful Porsche 993 Carrera 2 Targa on behalf of a close family friend. The car is finished in Polar Silver Metallic with a complementing Midnight Blue Leather interior. It is a desirable Tiptronic S model, which has done a mere 80,776 warranted miles from new, as highlighted by the combination of main dealer and private services below throughout the cars lifetime (with its 5 previous owners):

10,492 miles - 14/04/1997

To accompany the cars comprehensive history file (which contains invoices and receipts from new), is the original bill of sale from when the car was delivered to its first owner on the 13th April 1996, by Lancaster Colchester Porsche for £73,519.98. Moreover, the car comes with all of its original booklets, such as the Service Booklet, the original Price List (from October 1995) and the Workshop Manual.

This car was also a highly specced example, with the following features:

- Air conditioning / Climate control
- 17” Targa split rim alloys
- Full Turbo leather pack
- Comfort seats (Eight way electric seats)
- Electric sliding glass panoramic roof
- Tiptronic S automatic gearbox with steering wheel gear change
- Electric windows
- Electric heated mirrors
- On-board computer
- Four spoke sports steering wheel
- Rear wiper
- ABS
- Driver & Passenger airbags
- Top tinted windscreen
- Factory speaker & sound pack
- Hands free phone kit
- Sony XR C510 RDS 6CD
- Cat 1 Porsche alarm & immobiliser

The car has been used sparingly by my family friend since he purchased it in January 2014 and his reason for sale is due to not having enough time to enjoy the car, with current travel and work commitments. The Targa has always been garaged and dry stored throughout his ownership and therefore, it presents in an all-round great condition. The paint and interior is very good, which signifies that the car has been meticulously looked after throughout its life.

Mechanically, the car drives very well, having been consistently MOT’d and serviced; it has been described as very reliable by my family friend.

The car is HPI clear and benefits from an MOT which is valid until the 19th May 2022. Please feel free to get in contact if you’re interested in the car, have any questions or want to arrange a viewing. I also have lots more photos available for those who are interested too. Cheers
