In 1993, Porsche introduced the 993 as the successor of the 964. The 993 was offered in many variants, from the Carrera, Targa, the Turbo and the almighty GT2. The 993 Carrera hosted a 3.6L flat-six engine with the same bore and stroke as its predecessor the 964. With a power output of 272hp, there were two available transmissions – the 4-Speed Tiptronic Automatic or the 5-Speed manual transmission. Unofficially crowned as the most sophisticated and prettiest 911 of all time, the 993 is an appreciating classic.
Presented to you at the Car Farm is a highly sought after Aventurine Green Metallic 911 (993) Carrera Tiptronic. The car was originally imported and sold new as a Jebsen (Porsche Hong Kong) car. It was first registered in Hong Kong on 30th August 1995. The current owner has owned it for over 20 years. It has had four previous owners, and the current odometer reading is 29,305km; however, due to the instrument cluster quitted operating for a year so the true mileage remains unknown. The car is mostly in stock condition. Modification on this Porsche is limited to an aftermarket amplifier. The current road licence is valid until 30th May 2024.
