So it's sold and I am sure without significant if any discount on the price.

The Turbo version was £34,000, but I preferred the NB shape.

Smoke and mirrors Hand I only believe those figures when the 'new' owner pops up. Which he wont. It's market manipulation as the classic car bubble has deflated Rolling Eyes

Nice pre-vario (the one to have) car in a great colour combo, particularly with the Black interior and early big bolster sports seats.
My only criticism is the 13 services over its 22 year life. Very clever of 911Virgin to list the servicing as they have without showing the dates/years. Wink

That 993 certainly looked great in guards red- but still- at £62,000 I can't believe it sold immediately......the bubble sure ain't burst just yet 👍

C16? If not I'd not being believing that mileage. Very very rare in Guards if a C16 car.

Such a shame mileage is so important. I'd have a high mileage yearly serviced car any day over a low mileage non serviced one.

You don't want much chum do you Dont know What about if it has got the original rubber gloves and 'bag' for the punctured wheel when you flick on the space saver? Is there a full tool roll. How much 'sag' in degrees of longitude is there in the boot pocket Question

Not much no, just an answer to my question. Low miles and strong money for a car with gaps in its history.
The car looks great and I couldn't give half a chumley warner about a full tool roll or saggy saddlebag, although i'm interested to know about the lack of services. Wink

My car has a few more miles and a much more comprehensive service history but I would have definitely thought about looking elsewhere had there been some large gaps.
