The Arctic Silver paintwork looks great throughout with only a handful of minor defects to evidence the mileage. The car is overall very sharp with little more than a few small pin dents, chips, and one very light graze on the offside rear arch to report; being really picky one of the small body-coloured roof trims is cracked but this is purely cosmetic. Looking closer all the seals remain in fine order, the paint retains a great shine, and there are no off-colour panels. The electric glass roof panel operates exactly as it should and the car is lifted further with the desirable 17-inch split rim option; all four wheels have just been fully stripped and professionally refurbished to a very high standard.



Open the door and you’re greeted by a very smart black interior. The seats present in remarkably good original condition; the leather is still perfectly soft and supple to the touch and the electronic adjustments all work as they should. The complementing black carpets are also in great shape, the only negative here being some expected wear to the original driver’s overmat. The Tiptronic gear selector shows few signs of use and the steering wheel retains a nice grain to the leather. The switchgear is unmarked and still feels reassuringly solid to operate, with great features such as the electric glass roof and sun blind in perfect working order. Some nice factory options include air conditioning and the HiFi sound system.


The engine bay is in excellent condition with no damage or signs of previous poor repair. The 3.6-litre flat six looks as good as ever, fires up first turn of the key, and idles smoothly up to temperature. Being a later 993 this one is further equipped with Porsche’s Varioram induction system giving vastly improved low to mid-range torque over pre-1996 examples. The last major service, which also included a gearbox service, was completed in August 2021 less than 250 miles ago.
