Porsche 993 Carrera 2 /// 52k Miles /// Deposit Taken - Similar Required

A UK-supplied manual C2 in gleaming Polar Silver, with a mere 52k miles from new.
DEPOSIT TAKEN - SIMILAR REQUIRED /// Please get in contact if you are thinking of selling a similar classic car.
EQUIPMENT
Polar Silver Metallic paintwork, Grey leather upholstery, 6-Speed manual transmission, Air conditioning, Electric windows, Electric mirrors, Electric sunroof, Analogue clock, Immobiliser, Electrically adjustable front seats, Becker CD player, Cassette holder, Retractable rear wing, Space saver spare wheel, Tool kit, Spare key.
EXTERIOR
The lustrous Polar Silver paintwork appears near-flawless under our studio lighting, displaying a lovely metallic flake and deep shine to every panel. Having driven only 52k miles from new the car is extremely well presented throughout with only a couple of very small imperfections to report on close inspection. It’s arrow-straight along both sides with no scuffs or scrapes to the bumpers, and at the front end the lights are all still nice and clear. A pin sharp example of the air-cooled 911’s final iteration, looking every bit the low mileage.
INTERIOR
The sumptuous cabin is trimmed in supple grey leather with complementing deep pile carpets. The seats remain in excellent condition and are still perfectly supportive, with all the electronic adjustments operating just as they should. Looking closer, commonly worn areas such as the driver’s bolster and gearknob show signs of only light use, and the steering wheel is free from any unsightly ring marks. The switchgear is pristine and still reassuringly solid to operate, with nice features such as the electric sunroof and air conditioning all in perfect working order. A wonderfully clean and highly original interior overall, the only upgrade over standard being an attractive Becker Indianapolis Pro CD player that fits in well with the 993 aesthetic.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
As to be expected the engine bay is in immaculate condition with no damage to any of the components and no unsightly corrosion to be found. The 3.6-litre flat six looks as good as new and fires up first turn of key. Having only ever been serviced by either Porsche or Porsche specialists the mechanics of the car are first rate, and of course it’s as tight as a drum to drive. The last service was carried out in April 2021 at the current mileage of 52k. The MOT is valid until March 2022.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
Each of the 17-inch alloy wheels presents in perfect order with no curb damage or corrosion issues to be found. They are shod in a matching set of premium Bridgestone Potenza tyres, all with at least 6mm of tread remaining. The brakes have also been checked and remain in fine operational condition, recently benefitting from new pads and discs all round in April 2021.
