1996 Porsche 993 C2S Coupe Manual (SOLD)
Even in these uncertain times, one thing’s for sure: an air-cooled Porsche 911 will always be desirable. The last of them was the 993 launched in 1993.
Decades on, the appeal of the 993 is also boosted because it represents the last 911 series to be powered by an air cooled flat-6 – the seemingly bullet proof Mezger Motor (after the design engineer who laid out the original power unit back in 1963).
Unlike a modern sports car, this is a classic that makes you adapt to it. The right hand drive cars have slightly offset pedals and the layout of the switches and stalks appears quite random. But it is a layout you soon learn to accept. Besides its traditional air-cooled 3.6-litre flat-six engine, what also excited folk was the 993’s wonderful build quality and its multi-link rear suspension, which (mostly) fixed those infamous handling jitters. To drive a 993 is a relative step back from an over-smoothed later 911 iterations, and despite the power steering and brakes, it is a very hands on & satisfying car to drive.
Bell Sport & Classic are delighted to offer this simply stunning 1996 example of the iconic 993 Carrera S Coupe, finished in Basalt Black metallic with Cashmere leather Sport seats, ESR, 18″ Painted Turbo alloys, Air Con, Porsche Classic Sat Nav unit with Apple car play.

Having covered just 65,000 miles, you will struggle to find a nicer one !
