This Porsche 993 Targa: Only 4,583 Porsche 993 targa were produced until 1997. Most of these vehicles went to the USA as a US version and with Tiptronic. This means that the 993 targa is generally one of the rare 911 model variants.
Especially in this very rare combination:
– German first delivery
– 3rd hand (10 years current owner/previous owner 13 years) + PZ
– Manual gearbox (standard with short version G50/21)
– complete history
– technically perfectly revised (engine / transmission / chassis / Targa roof)
– complete checkbook maintenance
– On-board folder completely available
– original rims are present
– Sound package including sports mufflers/sports camshafts
– rare color – grand prix white
In general, only about 200 vehicles were delivered in the color white, most of them in firn white and extremely rarely in model year 1995/96 in Grand Prix white (like this vehicle). The targa is still considered a design icon among the 993 model variants.
This vehicle offers a very good and rare opportunity for petrolheads who are looking for an extremely elegant gentleman driver with very sporty resources and optically and technically very good condition with the last air-cooled 911. Just get in, drive off, enjoy and have fun.
With its new, original Porsche OEM Bilstein chassis, the targa drives incredibly precisely and sits firmly on the road. The revised gearbox shifts cleanly and precisely. The revised engine is completely leak-proof and, according to current pressure and performance measurements, extremely healthy. A performance diagram from 06.2022 is available. Thanks to the very high torque, the targa pulls through with impressive propulsion and revs up easily through the entire speed range. The sound is sonorous and sporty. A vehicle that is just plain fun. On the country road with the roof open, or on sunny autumn days with the glass roof lining closed.
Conclusion: We find the Porsche 993 to be one of the most beautiful and best-driving "suckers". Analog driving: emotional, fascinating and pure enjoyment.
