RHD 1996 Porsche 993 C2S Coupe for sale in the UK!

Our immaculate 1996 Porsche 993 C2S Coupe debuted in the same year as the Carrera 4 S and Targa versions of the 993. Produced between 1996 and 1998, the Carrera S is one of the most valuable 993 variants. Our C2S perfectly showcases a stylish Ocean Blue body colour, complemented by a tasteful, classic grey leather interior. It features the coveted Tiptronic transmission system with paddle shift and an electric rear spoiler first introduced in Benjamin Dimson’s 964. To aid aerodynamics and maintain the classic 911 silhouette, the spoiler raises when travelling at over 50 mph (80 km/h), lowering at reduced speeds to integrate within the bodywork. With excellent handling and modern conveniences such as part-electric seats, electric mirrors, and windows, alongside climate control and Becker media player, the 993 coupe transcends mere efficiency to provide its owner with a thrilling ride. Full-service history.

The Porsche 993 (1994-1998) is largely known as the final generation of the classic, air-cooled Porsche 911s,
before the water-cooled 996 was introduced. The 993 initially launched as a base Carrera; throughout its
production it was available in fastback coupe, Targa, convertible, and speedster body styles.

Designed by Harm Lagaay and Tony Hatter, the fourth generation 911 featured significant improvements. As opposed to receiving a mere facelift like some of its predecessors, the new 911 shared just 20% of its parts with the 964, whilst maintaining its classic profile. According to Hatter, “The Porsche board always had very firm ideas about its shape. It was claimed the 964 was 80 per cent new, but visually it looked barely 20 per cent new. We needed to do something less conservative, but without being too radical.” Its smoothed front was influenced by the 959, plans for the 989 four-door sedan that never reached production, and 928. The wheel arches were accentuated to become more muscular, its retractable rear wing was enlarged, and its teardrop mirrors revised. The 993 was referred to by Porsche as “a significant advance, not just from a technical, but also a visual perspective.” The 993 is another example of Porsche’s ethos, pairing tradition with innovation.

A new multi-link rear suspension was derived from the 989. The light-alloy subframe with coil and wishbone suspension corrected oversteer, and when combined with engine enhancements, vastly improved handling and driving experience. The system was also used in the 993’s successor, where it provided the 996 with greater stability. It was the first 911 to receive a six-speed manual transmission as standard and the new automatic Tiptronic S.
