1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S
An excellent UK supplied 6-speed manual example that has covered just 34,000 miles with a complete history from new. Finished in Zenith Blue with black leather interior the car features a high specification including 18” hollow spoke Technology wheels, air conditioning, hard back sports seats, rear wiper, electric sunroof, trip computer, Porsche stereo and exhaust Sound Box. A letter on file from Porsche confirms it is one of only two UK examples finished in this colour combination.
This C2S is in excellent order in all respects with great detail, it drives extremely well showing all of the tautness and performance one would expect from a well-maintained and lightly used example.
The service history is fully documented in the service book and detailed in invoicing on file. A full set of MOT certificates also accompany the car.
We first purchased the car in 2019 from a regular Hairpin customer and Porsche collector with very high standards. He had the car fully inspected by renowned specialists Clark and Carter following his purchase in 2019. Not surprisingly they found it to be an outstanding example with deficiency only in minor detail. In his quest to have a best example the owner commissioned Clark and Carter to perfect the car, invoices on file detail the expensive albeit minor work completed amounting to in excess of £20,000. A Porsche Classic stereo incorporating navigation, Bluetooth, radio receiver and smart phone connectivity was fitted at this time.
We sold the car very quickly in 2020 to another fastidious Hairpin customer who has continued to look after the car continually covering a further 5,000 miles since purchase.
