1996 PORSCHE 911 (993) CARRERA 2 3.6 VARIORAM TARGA TIPTRONIC S
Investment Quality - Low 77,000 Miles
Immaculate Service History
Desirable Specification


First registered and pre delivery inspected on 1 04 1996 by AFN Porsche
in London. This low mileage model has led a pampered existence being
lavished with delicate care from recognised professionals. The condition
is equally of a very high original standard. The combination of specification
ordered at the factory remains as desirable and safe 20 years ago as it is
today, investment potential wise there are no other 993 Targa cars
that are likely to come close to this in this price category, its essential
that you read the detail of the history and high specification, it
places this 993 a country mile ahead of an average example. Previously
sold by JZM and only 10,000 covered since with more pounds being spent than
miles in that time.

Service History - Drive - 19 Engine Services
£20,500 on servicing at Charles Ivey. £6000 Servicing at JZM. Covered a mere
77000 miles and has been maintained extremely well with an extensive history
portfolio. The original service book is fully stamped (detailed below) infact
its complete and has ran out of space. The later varioram engine is a total gem,
mated with the excellent tiptronic auto gearbox this takes the pain out any
traffic situation and crucially is fantastic to tour in, almost renders the
manual useless in my opinion. The last of the air cooled definitive Porsches
and widely regarded as the finest driving model in the whole incarnation
being the last of the quality hand built 911s. Remains one of the all time
best built pure 911s, with build quality that peaked at this point.

Recently the rear suspension has been refreshed including new springs,
shock absorbers, tiptronic drive shafts, anti roll bars and boot. A thick
folder of bills running into thousands covering many aspects of 993
ownership, a proactive approach has been taken to ownership, a mentality
that sets out to be continually looking for issues or areas of improvement,
with the neccessary deep pockets to back it up. These historic 911s must
now be bought on the strength of what has been spent, as they can cost
the same again to return to factory approved standard. A real knowledgable
enthusiasts 993. Inspection welcome.

The Targa
The Targa version of the 993 was introduced in model year 1996 and saw
the debut of a retractable glass roof, a design continued on the 996 and
997 Targa. The glass roof retracts underneath the rear window revealing
a large opening and a subsequent connection with the road that the coupe
cannot offer. This design further allows the model to retain the same
side-on profile as the other 911 Carrera variants with the clear convenience
of open top style motoring with zero storage problems. The glass is heat
treated from the factory so the cabin does not heat up wildly on those
elusive hot days. The shade of Black actually creates an optical illusion
with virtually the same silhouette as the Coupe. Note this is the later
higher output Varioram 285 bhp unit.
