1996 Porsche 911 ( 993 ) Carrera 4 Convertible, 3.6 air cooled 6 speed manual, just fully restored, turn key car

This is a stunning example which has just been fully restored by Ninemeister Porsche specialists in Cheshire and now easily ranks among the best available.

Owned by a most meticulous collector who is a regular customer of ours, the car has wanted for nothing and has been restored regardless of cost to an extremely high standard by well respected marque specialist Ninemeister. There is a detailed inventory of work carried out together with a photographic record of the work which entailed the removal of the engine and gearbox, the total cost approaching 20,000 on top of the initial purchase price of the car. Highlights of the work included a new clutch, strip and re-build of the varioram system, complete re-trim of the interior and the fitting of Dansk sports exhaust with Gembella tail pipes, together with a vast array of other work carried out and finally the fitting of a new Cobra alarm system. The end result is a "turn key" example with nothing more to do, ready to be used and enjoyed by the next enthusiast.

The car has covered 84,000 miles with a substantial service history folder, the service book recording prior maintenance at 15746, 17170, 27981, 38411, 48339, 57592, 62223, 72115, 77676, 82898, 84097 and 84600 miles, servicing having been carried out by Porsche up to 62,000 and specialists thereafter. In addition to the service book we have a large collection of invoices detailing further work carried out, for example a new convertible roof was fitted in 2006 at a cost of 1819.97. The current owner has just purchased a brand new tonneau cover which is still in the box, unused. The sale will further include a none age related personal number plate.

The car was stored in a heated garage by another collector for a period of 8 years from 2008 until 2016 at which point the car was sent for a major overhaul at Daniel James Performance Cars in Essex at cost of 1356.11, mileage 82898. The owner was satisfied that he owned a "superb example of a 993" but it was not up to the standards of our client who bought the car from this gentleman and then initiated the full restoration detailed above. In the words of Ninemeister "it is rare to find a 993 in this condition" and they believe it would be "very difficult to replace", the director of Ninemeister giving a written valuation of 68,000 which is with the car.

Finished in stunning Arena red with black hood and specified with the optional hard back leather sports seats, the car further benefits from 18 inch "Technology" alloy wheels. In the metal the car is absolutely stunning both inside and out - in fact we have had more emails commenting on this car than we have had for quite some time. Behind the wheel the car performs exactly as it should, as of course you would expect given the vast recent expenditure and the knowledge and reputation of Ninemeister. The car is exciting, involving and visceral, exactly as a 911 ought to be.

Specification to include a modern Blaupunkt Stockholm DAB radio and CD player which offers Bluetooth hands free telephony and music streaming, electric seats, electric mirrors, electric windows, remote central locking with a new Cobra alarm and immobiliser, 18 inch alloy wheels which are unmarked and fitted with fresh Michelin pilot sports tyres round.

Supplied with original keys, original book pack containing owners manuals, stamped service book, brand new unused tonneau cover etc.

The car will be supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices.

The 993 is the last of the air cooled 911's and this is the much less common Carrera 4 version, as such this car should prove a solid investment whilst providing a vast amount of enjoyment to the owner.

Offered for sale by agency on behalf of the owner who is a regular client.
