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. The Porsche 993 Targa was introduced for the 1996 model year. It's smart open-top glass roof design helped it to retain the desired side-on 911 Carrera profile. The all-glass retractable surface, rather than the removable panel as per preceeding 911 Targa's, within a wide B-pillar (functioning as a roll bar) provided that clean coupe line from A to C pillar. The glass roof cleverly retracts underneath the rear window revealing an almost panoramic opening whilst an unusally effective wind deflector pops-up along the top of the windscreen. Designed by Brit designer Tony Hatter in 1991 the 993 was as recognisable as a 911 should be but it shared only the roof panel, doors and rear quarter windows from the earlier models. And there many hidden technical and driving improvements too. August 1995 saw the introduction of the Varioram induction system, and this engine would be a standard feature from 1996 onwards.With it came a boost of power to 285bhp and a top speed nudging 170mph. Further improvements were the dual flow exhaust, the larger cross drilled brakes with ABS as well as a reduction in interior noise levels (ie. road noise). The new power steering, the slightly wider track and the new multi-link, all alloy, rear suspension provided passive rear-wheel steering (the 'Weissach effect') all provided the driver greater confidence and a better driving experience. Our well maintained example is a RHD, 1997 993 Targa with a manual gearbox. This all-original Varioram car has covered 72,500 miles and has always been thoroughly maintained. It comes with a fully comprehensive servicing record (Porsche Centres and marque specialists), a complete book-pack and a thick folder with many invoices. In optional Arctic Silver Metallic paint, contrasting favourably with the Black leather, this car is surely one of the finest 993s available today. The 993-series 911 is regarded by many as a true modern classic, offering genuine usability but still with a real and important place in the history of Porsche's most famous model. This example is very worthy of the expression 'best-of-breed' and is ready to be enjoyed and appreciated.
