1995 saw the introduction of the Targa version Porsche 993. In contrast to the earlier 911 Targa version, this one did not have detachable panels but a clever glass sliding roof. This meant owners no longer lost space in having to store the panels in the front when removing the roof. Webasto were responsible for the design of the roof, with the 993 convertible used as a base. This made this car the ultimate 993 for those who could not decide between a convertible and a coupé. Carrying an extra 30 kg of weight compared to the coupé did not form a major hindrance when deciding which version you preferred. With no rain gutters, we feel the Targa probably represents the 993 at its most attractive. The large glass roof led Porsche to fit climate control as standard. The Targa also had two-part 17 inch Speedline rims fitted as standard. In 1996 this car was supplied in Germany from new. Over the last 25 years, it has been very well maintained, only clocking up some 135,000 km. The car comes complete with a full service and maintenance history. As you might well expect this 993 Targa is in rude health. The wonderful bodywork has nice and thin original panelwork. The paintwork is in a very good state with only a few light blemishes. The car is has been re-sprayed for cosmetic reasons to a high standard. On inspecting the car’s interior the black cloth upholstery is immediately noticeable. Only very few 993 Targa’s were supplied with cloth upholstery, which when you come to think of it is quite remarkable as with so much glass cloth stays cooler than leather. Furthermore, this 993 has an abundance of accessories. It has Xenon lights, a fine Becker radio, electric windows, electrically adjustable seats, a third brake light and a spare wheel.

With a Porsche it is of course all about the mechanics. This 993 has a six-cylinder 3.6-litre boxer engine with Varioram technology. Varioram being a Porsche patented system allowing for a variable-length inlet manifold to be fitted. This provides a lot of torque at low revs, whilst allowing for a lot of power at high revs, in other words always using the ideal manifold length. This system was first seen in the Porsche 964RS before later being used in the 993. The engine develops 285 Ps coupled to a

six-speed gearbox. The 993 Targa can reach 0 to 100km/hr in 5.4 seconds and a top speed of 275 km/hr. Thanks to meticulous maintenance this 993 is fully ready to be enjoyed. Pre 993 Targa generations of the 911 were intended as proper summer cars. The 993 changed all of that, making it an enjoyable all year round car. In summary, you could say the 993 is the perfect partner for all seasons. Gallery Aaldering is Europe’s leading Classic Cars specialist since 1975!
