Still presented in its original colour of Glacier White the 993 presents impeccably. Cherished and dry stored throughout its life the paintwork remains unmarked and stunningly bright, boasting a deep shine to every panel. On close inspection, measurement of the paint depth confirms a single coat of paint. Even the rubber seals still appear fresh, having never been allowed to dry out. Furthermore this Turbo was specified with the X79 factory option giving it side air vents on the rear wings for the desirable Turbo S look.
The interior space is upholstered with soft black leather, extending to the dashboard and door panels. Both front seats are heated with 8-way electrical operation for maximum comfort control. Having covered a mere 18k miles since 1996 the interior remains in tremendous condition as to be expected, with no wear to the seat bolsters, bases, or carpets throughout. All the switchgear retains a fresh texture and operates exactly as it should. Under the bonnet the options sticker still remains, with all tools still present beneath the front carpet.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The engine compartment and underside are notably clean, leaving no doubt that this example has been very well maintained and stored throughout its life. The flat-six Turbo provides a huge rush of acceleration, completing the 0-60 dash in a mere 3.9 seconds.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
All of the alloys are in excellent condition and are shod in a matching set of Michelin Pilot Sport tyres, which have plenty of tread remaining. The red Porsche calipers are immaculate, and the discs and pads only show minimal wear.
