Introduction

Tom Brett
Content Editor

The 993 Coupe is probably one of the best 911's ever made.

At the time, Porsche completely redesigned the sunroof that debuted on this model as the ‘greenhouse’ system that sits seamlessly underneath without you noticing.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Martin, having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

Martin is a passionate Porsche enthusiast. He’s had around 10 in total on and off since 1995, this being his second 993 under his ownership.

After purchasing and conducting a 48,000-mile service, including a gearbox service along with the filters, brake overhaul and much more so the car was in tip-top condition.

He is looking to sell now as his wife would like a more day-to-day practical car that they can both enjoy, although Martin describes his predicament as being Porschless, and we really feel for him. Please watch the “Meet the Owner” video as we speak further with Martin about the car.

Exterior

The 993 looks absolutely stunning in its Arena Red coating. The bodywork looks as if it is carved by the wind and is in our opinion one of the best looking 911 derivatives.

Wheels and Tyres

Martin noticed the tyres perishing and recently has fitted the car with a full set of Michelin Pilot “Sport” tyres that have done around 100 miles, with the profiles of 205/50/17 & 255/50/15.

Bodywork

The 911 retains an excellent condition of the bodywork across the car, especially for the car’s mileage.

Paint

Martin has gone over the car to remove stone chips and start the polishing process. The paint looks good and even and a mop and polish form the new owner will have it looking tip-top.

Glass and Trim

Both are in excellent condition across the car.

Interior

Laid out in the Porsche colour of Linen, the car wants to make the driver feel a sense of luxury on top of the thrilling experience you would get in the 993.

Seats and Carpets

The driver’s seats have the expected cracks of the car’s mileage but maintain a good condition with no rips or stitching problems. The black carpets look clean and are complemented with the dashboard above.

Dashboard

The black leather dashboard looks to be in good condition along with all dials and gauges.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Both are in excellent condition with no issues.

Mechanics

This is a fantastic drivers car that will give the new owner so much joy and enthusiasm.

Engine and Gearbox

Please watch our video where Martin starts the car for us to see how the engine ticks over form cold. The car has a 3.6L naturally aspirated engine, air-cooled. Martin expresses that the Triptronic gearbox has been serviced, ensuring further reliability.

Suspension and Brakes

The brakes have been overhauled after Martin purchased the car and are now in great condition. Martin assures us the car drives really well with no unexpected bumps or rattles.

Electrics and Other

Just before cars were littered with electronic equipment that the interior holds a lot of simplicity to allow for pure driving. Martin assures us that all electrics and gauges work as expected, however.

History and Paperwork

With effectively one former keeper, Martin has a great example of a 911 that has a very good service history with the OPC in Newcastle, and with its last service taking place at Strasse, Leeds – a well-established specialist centre also.

Please confirm condition of the door seals. Video of internal suggests some wear / perishing ( however may just be video still image ?)
Also confirm that it was front screen that was removed and new rubber seal (by Strasberg)

Martin, can you let me know if any of the common issues with 993s exist – bubbling around the rear windscreen or headlights, faulty/failing door straps, oil leaks or problems with the suspension. Also, please confirm all the electrics are working. Apologies but for some reason I can only get sound on one of the videos posted, which is the first one where you speak about the cars history. I am a private buyer. May thanks

Managed to zoom in and appear purchase was 01-Jan-1997. Surprised as a public holiday?.

The description says you did something at 48000 miles but odo has 78000, please can this be expanded on. Second question has the car had any accident damage? Third, why was screen taken out i.e. was there a leak into the car. Lastly when did you actually buy the car and what was the mileage. Sorry for direct questions but am a private buyer. Many thanks.

Hi Simon, no accident damage reported or known. With regards the service, 48,000 is to identify the type of service that was completed, the mileage of the car at the time of that service was 78,000. A thorough service was conducted as the car hadn’t been used for around 4 years before Martin purchased. Hope that helps! Kulraj
