The 993 was the final generation of air-cooled 911s, and as such will always have a special place in the affections of Porsche enthusiasts. It is also widely said to be the last of the 911s that were built whilst engineering integrity overruled accounting pressures at Porsche. Twenty years on, it still looks modern - a truly timeless design.It was launched in the autumn of 1994 and was claimed by the company to be significantly different (80% new they said) from the 964. The bodywork was altogether more curvaceous, with a number of new panels and the overall look was much smoother and more integrated. Importantly, this new style was still every inch a 911 in the traditional manner, with the profiles of the doors and rear quarter windows remaining unchanged from earlier models. The biggest change under the skin was the new multi-link rear suspension, giving greater driver confidence, less road noise, and excellent ride quality. Designed to give a level of passive rear-wheel steering (the `Weissacheffect'), thus controlling the way the suspension behaved under cornering, braking, and acceleration, it transformed the 911. It was also the first 911 to be equipped with power steering and an advanced ABS system. August 1995 heralded the introduction of the 'Varioram' induction system, helping to boost power to 285bhp, and enabling a top speed close to 170mph with acceleration to match.Offered here is a UK, AFN Chiswick delivered, Porsche 993 Carrera 2 Cabriolet finished in Arctic Silver Metallic with a Midnight Blue leather interior and just 45,000 miles recorded. The comprehensive specification includes a six-speed gearbox, power assisted steering, ABS brakes, electric windows, electric mirrors, original leather steering wheel and CD player. It has headlamp adjustment and washers, and remote central locking with alarm and immobiliser. The power hood is finished in Midnight Blue nicely complementing the dark blue interior. 'Cup' 17-inch alloys are fitted with Porsche colour-crested centres. Theservice history is excellent with twenty-one service stamps from main dealers and Porsche specialists and all the service invoices are in the history file along with the original owner's book pack and manuals. Both original keys are present together with the car's tool bag and tyre compressor.The car has been enjoyed by four owners with the last owner purchasing it in 2008 with 29,000 miles indicated. Besides routine servicing, he replaced the clutch and the dual mass flywheel. The last service was conducted this May (2017) with 45,050 miles showing and supplied with a fresh MOT.The values of 993s have continued to rise recently with right-hand drive, manual gearbox cars commanding a significant premium, and naturally, the Cabriolet is the one to have.
