Outstanding limited production Porsche 993 911 Carrera 4S with very desirable specification fully restored and ready to enjoy.
Like many things in life, there's various ways folks go about things. I will admit to being somewhat intense and most certainly overboard when it comes to cars and in particular Porsche. Obsessive is another appropriate descriptive adjective. If I own something it has to be perfect in all respects. I guess this car represents and reflects my certifiable and questionable mindset.
The car was initially very appealing ticking many boxes inc (IMO) the best Wide Body colour of Artic silver with the seemingly hard to find black interior. It had a great history file coupled with long term ownership and most importantly, it drove fabulously.
My original plan was to just tidy up the few areas needing minor attention and continue using and enjoying. having taken it back against a previous restoration project. That's when my nonsensical and irrational second brain took over.
One thing led to another, followed by what can only be described as a ludicrous sum of money regarding parts and labour. A long term restoration journey with countless hours getting everything from the minuscule to the major correct, mirroring a 1997 newly supplied 4s The objective, ensuring everything resembled a new car whilst retaining the originality, patina and 'unmessed' with feel, often absent on restored cars.
The final result is a concours standard, sublime - fresh, mechanically perfect Porsche 993 4s
This car is now aesthetically flawless and must be one of the best examples in the UK and is only comparable to new! Having had 3m PPF, paint protection film fitted to the full car, the paint is now fully protected.
As with most projects that are carried out 100% properly, the costs spiral and are never recouped. Unfortunately for me this is the case and due to unforeseen events I am reluctantly selling a few of my special Porsches

Outstanding limited production Porsche 993 911 Carrera 4S with very desirable specification.
The 993 generation of 911's were the last to use the legendary air-cooled flat six engines and the C4S is one of the rarest and most valued examples of the 993 generation and this car is one of the cleanest examples anywhere available on the market today.
Finished in Artic Silver with Black leather interior this particular car is equipped the hard back sports seats, full extended leather and the rare hollow 5-spoke wheels.
This exceptional car has a complete and comprehensive service history and has been subject to a full restoration where no expense was spared and only original Porsche manufactured parts and equipment were used.
The car is owned by an enthusiast who over the years has restored or overseen a significant number of stunning vehicle restorations and the attention to detail on this vehicle, makes it stand out from the average resprayed and fiddled with cars that are available.
“Steve Bennet recently commented whilst driving one of my other cars “
It’s a 993 RS in all but its VIN plate. That would have most experts fooled. We take a drive in the ultimate clone.”
Of all the air cooled RS models it is the most useable, while still retaining its edge. Here is a 993 RS rep, built to the highest standards that would fool anyone and delivers the complete RS experience.
”Quote from Steve Bennett, editor 911&Porsche World.
