This Porsche 993 Targa handset shines in a noble arena red metallic.
The Porsche 993 is the successor to the Porsche 964 series. It is the last model of the Porsche classic 911 with an air-cooled boxer engine.
The engine range of the 993, introduced in 1993, ranges from 200 kW (272 PS) or 210 kW (286 PS) for the Carrera and Targa models to the top-of-the-range turbo model with 300 kW (408 PS). In addition, performance-enhanced vehicles were also manufactured for motorsport.
It was initially available as a coupé and convertible with rear-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive versions with the Carrera 4 and the 911 Turbo followed for the 1995 model year. In the 1996/97 model years, the Carrera 4S and Carrera S added to the model range. In addition, the Targa model was produced from 1996 onwards and had a large, electrically adjustable sliding roof made of tinted laminated glass instead of the removable hood as in the predecessor of the 964. From then on, the usual roll bar could be dispensed with. The Carrera and Targa models were powered by a new 3.6 liter engine, which from 1996 initially developed 272 hp and later 285 hp.
In this beautiful Targa, the 6-cylinder boxer engine develops a whopping 286 hp at 210 kW from a 3.6l displacement.
Only around 4,500 vehicles of this body shape were built and only a few with manual transmission.
Some of the equipment criteria were already “standard” in the 993, such as driver and passenger airbags, power steering, power brakes with anti-lock braking system and power windows.
However, special accessories were also installed to order, as was the case with this vehicle.
In addition, ex works: Sports suspension (033), Code C00, heated seats on the left (139), heated seats on the right (340), 40% lock (220), ABD traction control (224), rear wiper (425), colored crests on the rims (445) , automatic speed control / cruise control (454), sound system (490), on-board computer (659), Becker CDR-21 (686).
The vehicle was delivered by the Porsche Center in Nuremberg in December 1996 to a doctor who had owned the vehicle for three years. She sold it in 1999 with 12,500km to Munich to a respected police officer of the Munich Police Headquarters, who looked after the vehicle from 1999 to 2013 (14 years). A slight accident with wildlife in 2003 caused some scratches on the left side of the vehicle and the front turn signal light on the driver’s side was damaged; The repairs and repainting was carried out by the Porsche Center in Munich and was proven by invoices amounting to approx. 5000 €.
In 2013 the vehicle was finally sold with 127,000km to a doctor near Munich, who still owns the vehicle to this day.
He drove only 6,000km with his Porsche in the past eight years.
It goes without saying that the vehicle was always serviced by Porsche Nuremberg and then by Porsche Munich.
The next general inspection is not due until next year, July 2022.
Except for the repair mentioned above, the vehicle is largely in its original condition inside and out.
All invoices since delivery are available, as well as the Porsche service booklet.
