Just a single (titled) owner from new, Porsche servicing up to 62,000 miles and regular servicing thereafter6,000 spent at Porsche Centre Solihull in 2016In fine mechanical health and in very good, commensurate condition for age/mileageStriking Zenith Blue Metallic paint, contrasting favourably with the Grey leather interiorThe two-wheel-drive Carrera S has the Turbo's widebody stance with Turbo style wheels and lowered suspension1of 344 UK/right-hand drive C2S models.Just 93 of thesewith the Tiptronic S gearboxA later model with the Varioram induction system making 210bhp from its 3.6-litre engine. 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds and 165mphThe 993 was the final generation of air-cooled 911s, 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 at a time when engineering standards overruled accounting concerns at Porsche. The modelwas launched in the autumn of 1994 and was claimed to be 80% new and twenty-five years on, it still looks modern - a truly timeless design.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 still was still every inch a 911 in the traditional manner, with the profiles of the doors and rear quarter windows remaining unchanged from that time-honoured shape. The biggest change under the skin was the new multi-link rear suspension, giving greater driver confidence, less road noise and supreme 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 found in the outgoing 964, mated to a development of the worthy G50 gearbox, but now with six forward gears. In August 1995, the Varioram induction system was introduced helping to boost power to 285bhp, which was enough to propel the slippery 993 to a top speed of close to 170mph with acceleration to match.The car presented here is a C16 (UK-supplied) 1997 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera 2 S, being one of 344 such examples, just 93 of these were fitted with the Tiptronic S gearbox. Finished in one of thebest colours for a 993, Zenith Blue Metallic, this car was delivered new via Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield andwas subsequently serviced by them from 1997 up to 2002 and 62,000 miles. For unknown reasons, this well-maintained 993 was then put into storage for approximately six years. Upon its exit, it was deemed special enough to go with its owner, a Mr Edward Fitzpatrick, to Cologny, an area in Geneva, Switzerland. In 2010, at 77,200 miles, he treated the car to 8,000 worth of work with Classica Motors S.A.In 2014, Mr Fitzpatrick and the Porsche returned to theUK, now with 81,348 miles, and was serviced at acost of2,320. More recently, at Porsche Centre Solihull the car received attention to thesuspension, includingnew front and rear shocks, plus some other remedial work, costing almost 6,000. With such diligent ownership,this 993 is a mechanically healthy and shows just some minor cosmetic wear is only a few areas, wholly commensurate with its mileage.An opportunity to own one of the best of the last generation of air-cooled Porsches, this 911 is ready for immediate use.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between 16thand 30thJuly.
