1997 Porsche 993

Story and History

1997 Porsche 993 Cabriolet

A very, very nice example of these highly usable and now increasingly collectable air cooled 911's

The last owner is a Dentist from Ireland, whose brother is a Porsche specialist in Germany, so you can understand that when he chose this car, it was after rejecting very many others

It comes with a complete service history, not just in the Porsche service pack but also listed chronologically by our Dentist friend after intensive research through the service history - including all services and owner changes

The total mileage is now 71.000 with the last service in Ireland in June 2015

The previous service was carried out in Germany when he was visiting his brother, where he had Porsche Service Zentrum in Pfaffenhausen, a RUF owned company, undertake any works required, comprising of but not exclusive to, a full fluid service, new shock absorbers on all 4 corners, full wheel alignment and a replacement gearbox for the electric roof, which was of course adjusted into fine fettle at the same time. The total cost for completion of these works was €8420.65

This example is 1 of only 58 UK C16 specification Cabriolet with manual gears produced for the UK in 1997, out of a total of just 331 in all from 1994 - 1998

Options listed for this particular Porsche are as listed below:-

033 Lowered suspension

408 18" Technology wheels (lightweight hollow spoke)

437 8-way electrical seat, left

438 8-way electrical seat, right

490 Sound system

567 Top-tinted windscreen

573 Air conditioner

602 A raised stop lamp

659 Board computer

Of the few of these produced there will not be many as nice as this, nor with such an amazing history file or with such a great spec, let alone with all three

Porsche prices are on the up, these are one of the prettiest 911 design's, their engine is one of the best air cooled 911 engines and they are also the last of the air cooled 911 variant's, so our advice is to grab before prices get out of reach - and this is probably as good as it gets for £50k
