1996 Porsche 993 Targa - immaculate and original For Sale

RH Classics is delighted to present this C16 UK market 993 Targa on behalf of its owner.

Built on 03 September 1996 and supplied to Dick Lovett of Swindon, with first registration taking place on 02 December 1996.

Finished in the desirable colour combination of H8H8 Arena Red Metallic, with Classic Grey Leatherette trim and fitted with split rim ‘Targa’ wheels. A set of original Cup wheels are also available.

Detailed on the accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity accompanying the car are options specified by the first owner which included a rear wiper and top tinted windscreen.

This high performance Varioram model spent much of its early life in the UK before moving to Paris for two years with its British owner. It then returned to the UK in 2012 and was sold on two separate occasions by renowned Porsche Specialist Paul Stephens as a benchmark example, which it remains, having covered just 65,000 miles from new, supported by comprehensive history.

The whole car presents beautifully, thanks to a combination of light use and careful maintenance over the years, resulting in one of the best presented 993’s on sale today, especially in this lovely period colour which has recently been treated to ceramic paint protection.

Likewise, the interior is exceptionally well preserved, with the Targa roof mechanism working perfectly and all seals absolutely watertight; the only evidence of its’ 25 years being the very lightest of wear to the drivers’ seat bolster,which we can of course address for the new owner if requested.

A 993 is eminently usable, with superb build quality, which means this really is a car that you could happily use every day with confidence, or just for special occasions, as this one is. It’s now old enough to feel like a ‘Youngtimer’ classic, but happily one you really can use regularly without fear.

Unsurprisingly, it’s a superb driving car and with the Targa roof open, the bark of that creamy flat six as it approaches the red line is truly intoxicating, especially when combined with the 6 speed manual box, culminating in perhaps the ideal specification ‘real world’ classic 911.

Our car has always been scrupulously maintained by either Porsche themselves or by marque specialists, resulting in a 911 that drives exactly as Porsche intended, having never been allowed to deteriorate. From the driving seat, it feels utterly tight, well sorted and absolutely ‘factory’.

Accompanying the car is comprehensive documentation and provenance, comprising original service and instruction manuals, leather Porsche wallet, two sets of keys plus valet key, past MOT certificates, service invoices and a Porsche COA detailing the factory build specification which it carries to this day.

The 993 is rightly regarded as a high point in 911 lineage and for very good reason – it embodies the best elements of a classic air-cooled 911, but with even greater levels of practicality and being a Targa, combines the good looks of a coupe, but with open top motoring – what’s not to love?

An exceptionally original and intact example of a highly desirable car that’s also surprisingly practical. Offered for sale at £56,750 to include a fresh major service, carried out by ourselves.

The car is in stock, fully prepared and available for immediate sale. Viewing by appointment at our rural workshops, located just outside of Melton Mowbray in Twyford, Leicestershire.
