K6 (39R) designates the dramatic and beautiful hue of Aventurine Green Metallic. This colour was only in production for circa two years before being placed in the PTS (Porsche To Sample) pallet. Its easy to see why this upgrade took place – Aventurine Green is a rich and complex colour, far superior to the more standard Porsche colourways.

The 993 suits Adventurine Green particularly well, the colour changing from a deep green to a slate grey as light dances across the horizontal and vertical surfaces. The paint is deep and glossy with very few marks to show its age. There are very few if any noticeable chips to report and overall, this 993 presents incredibly well.

The cabin of the 993 is one of Teutonic efficiency and ergonomics. Porsche’s of this vintage were built solidly and this example is the perfect case in point – the switch gear for instance, feels beautifully damped with a perfectly defined moment and weight of action. Porsche Classic Grey is a wonderful match to the Aventurine Green exterior, further enhanced by the hard backed seats in body colour. Light floods in when the steel sunroof is open, adding light to an already bright interior.

The seats are supportive and offer good location when cornering hard. There is little sign of use anywhere in the interior and the seat bolsters remain free of any rips or tears. The rear seats have clearly seen little use and can be folded flat to add further storage to the interior and indeed protect the leather.

Porsche are famous for many things, but their flat six engine is one that the brand and automotive world hold most dear. The technical specification reads as utopia for Porsche fans – six cylinders in a flat layout, a swept capacity of 3.6 litres, naturally aspirated and air cooled. Known internally as the M64/20, this 993 benefits from the updated VarioRam engine, which altered the length of the air intake ducts to enhance low and mid range driveabillty further.

The headline power figure is some 285bhp, and the sprint to sixty claimed in 5.6 seconds. Formidable figures still, let alone back in in 1996. On test drive, the engine feels very fit and potent, with a wonderfully raspy timbre as the engine spins to the upper reaches of its rev range. The sonic experience of the 993 is one every true petrolhead should experience.

The 17 inch cup alloys give this 993 the perfect period stance. Pleasingly free of any damage, they present immaculately, with Carrera 4 centre caps. The alloys are shod in a premium set of Falken FK452’s all showing good tread with a 205/50/17 footprint on the fronts and a 255/40/17 on the rear.

Visible through the spokes are the silver brake calipers that again, are in excellent condition and indicative of how good the braking of this 993 is. On test drive, the brakes haul the car strongly and arrow straight, giving new 911 drivers or seasoned campaigners huge confidence as they peel back the layers of the 911 driving experience.
