Description

A 'C16' UK-supplied, right-hand drive, manual C4 Coupewith 25,300 miles from newDesirable 6-speed manual gearbox. All-new, lighter four-wheel-drive systemFinished in Schwartz Metallicand specifiedfrom new with the factory Aerokit1BLovely interior in Linen soft ruffled leather and Cirrus Grey carpetsFitted with 18-inch technology wheels, top-tinted screen, air conditioning and a sunroofSubstantially stampedservice book with many original and copy invoicesMost recent service by Paragon in East Sussex at 24,723 milesThe 993 was the last of the air-cooled era of the 911 and reputably the car that nearly broke the company because of the incredible quality engineered into every variant. The water-cooled models that followed were a commercial success and Porsche were soon back in the black, but that magic, honed from granite, feel of the 993 would not return for many years.Often cited by enthusiasts as "the last real Porsche", the 993 straddles the bridge between pure high performance driving thrills, visceral dynamics, and appealing design-led solutions to emissions and safety requirements. No previous 911 variant had possessed such high-speed cornering ability and dynamic stability aided by the significantly wider track and all-alloy rear suspension. The six-speed manual gearbox not only surpassed the previous four and five-speed boxes in usability, but most commentators also found it to be a quicker reacting and a smoother gear change, enhancing the whole driving experienceThis, C16 UK-supplied, right-hand drive C4 Coupe has done 25,300 miles from new, is finished in black metallic (colour code Z8Z8) and boats the desirable 6-speed manual gearbox. The accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms thatthe car was specified with Aerokit 1B (two-part front lip spoiler and large rear Bi-Plane spoiler with integrated third brake light), 18-inch Technology Wheels, Rear Wiper, Top-tinted screen, AirCon, Sunroof and Soft Ruffled Leather making for a truly exceptional list of options when it left the factory.The service history is extensive despite the mere 25,300 miles covered to date with a substantially stamped up service book and many original and copy invoices adding unusual depth of detail to the car's history. Sold a few years ago to a previousowner by Hexagon Modern Classics and subsequently by Paragon (both dealers of some repute) to our vendor,who enjoys a significant private collection of only the very best examples he can find, this 993 has clearly been cherished over the years. The most recent service was carried out by Paragon on 11/05/2018 at 24,723 miles.Quite simply this is one of the best 993s weve ever offered.
