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 such high-speed cornering ability and stability via the use of widened track and all-alloy rear suspension. The six-speed manual gearbox not only surpassed the previous four and five-speed gearboxes in usability, but most commentators also found it to be a quicker reacting and a smoother gear change, in turn allowing full concentration to be employed on the road ahead rather than fighting the gears themselves.
This left-hand drive manual 993 C2 was manufactured on the 26th March 1998 and was one of the very last 993s off the production line. The last car rolled off on 30th March 1998 and resides as part of the Seinfeld collection in America. Fitted with factory options of heated sports seats, 17" new cup design wheels, air conditioning, sun roof, oval exhaust pipes, red brake callipers and sport seats back painted, the exterior is finished in a special colour of fly yellow, that was only available to these last edition models. Delivered new to Porsche Zentrum Fulda, Germany, this 993 resided with one owner until it was purchased and exported to the UK in 2002 by the previous owner, himself a respected Porsche specialist. Purchased by the current owner in 2008, he set about recommissioning the car, as it had been stored for a number of years. The bodywork was starting to show its age and was professionally resprayed. There are pictures in the history file of the car back to metal.
Supplied with its original German registration papers, current UK registration papers, a full years MoT and a certificate of authenticity from Porsche, this last edition 993 is reading a mere 63,000 kilometres or 39,150 miles and since residing in the UK has been owned by Porsche specialists. A full service has just been carried out on this vehicle by P.I.E Performance Porsche and it can be driven from the auction. The 993 was considered one of 'the' great 911s ever built and this last of the line example is worthy of a place in any collection.
