Chassis no. WP0ZZZ99ZTS372394; Engine no. 61T04236. Midnight Blue Metallic over Marble Grey leather. RHD. 3601/400hp, 6-speed, sports leather seats, Turbo Twist alloy wheels, radio/cassette stereo, red calipers.

Evaluation: A likeable spec with clean paint and trim. The rear light bar is in mint condition, another sign of consistent care and careful storage. The alloy wheels are unmarked, too. The interior looks original with slight creasing to the leather and little use of the controls. The is a very impressive 911 in the magical Midnight Blue, and its 23,237 miles are impressively low but not too low to actually drive and enjoy.

Bottom Line: The Porsche 993 Turbo boasts a few firsts, being the first 911 Turbo with all-wheel drive, the system used in the 959. It as also the first generation of the 911 to have a 6-speed manual transmission included as standard. Of course, the 993 was also the last air-cooled 911, so this generation has a certain appeal as the mixing the modern conveniences and comforts of a ’90s car with a classic, traditional air-cooled engine. This one was consigned for Bonhams’ sale in London last December but was withdrawn and went to Goodwood instead. The reasons aren’t clear, but the wait appears to have been worth it because this is a strong price in the UK market for one of these cars.
