For me Arena red and blue upholstery is the worst colour combination I have ever seen on a 993. It was the first 993 I remember that registered with me some 11 years ago. Lived round the corner from me so saw it on a number of occasions. It was a nice one owner car, but was never on my list.
Somebody will love it no doubt.

Still a low mileage car, probably well looked after, it's manual and more importantly, it's an 'S', the low production numbers will always add £££££ Thumb Very Happy

With one selling for 90K at 911 Virgin recently, things are still on the up.
Think I would rather have had the nice black one from 911V though, for just 3K more!!!

Christ just when I thought the S models premium was actually starting to get closer to the NB's, these sales go through! Strong money, congrats.

Or realise that WB none turbo 993's are still undervalued Cool

You can't get away from desirability and rarity. No matter what happens those facts wlll always work in their favor.

When I bought 5 years ago there was a c£10k premium WB over NB, that has widened and will continue to do so IMHO.

Hand As a kid I had a 'Stretch Armstrong' and he could bridge some wide gaps, but oddly enough always went back to his original size Bandit

Hardly an impartial view, but probably accurate. Smile

Mmmm you could say I'm not impartial .....but ...... that was my logic when I decided to spend £10k more on a WB. I literally had a choice of a NB for £25k or a WB for £35k, it was a tough decision and I was impartial at the time. Fast forward 5 years and facts is facts as they say i.e. A good NB is £50k, an equivalent WB is more than £10k more and simple logic tells me that gap will only ever get wider Bandit

£25-35k more going by what has been sold recently. So in reality both NB and WB have roughly doubled in value. Both gained by the same percentage. Gap is the same.

Agree with you that the WB cars probably have some way to go. Although I'm biased also. Smile

This was the car I mentioned earlier now up for sale on Ebay its a lovely car but Catd it would appear, I didn't realise it was Jims car as his 993 Turbo is an absolute belter with the loudest exhaust Ive ever heard on a turbo

That looks a great price. Hardly ever see CAT D cars with before repair and during repair photographic evidence. A lot cheaper than the £70k+ a car without a mark against it's history would cost.

Not sure about that interior though. Bandit

What a lovely looking car that is - love the Arena Red but what was the original owner thinking speccing it with blue leather - I can't imagine that works that well - black would have been so much nicer!

I can remember back when the 996 Turbo was launched and me and my Dad were invited up to have a look around it (Dad was a good customer at the time and they were trying to sell him one) - it was Lapis Blue with what I thought was black leather - the Sales Manager nearly had a heart attack when I said 'is it black inside' - his response was 'it better not be' and had to open the door to check - it was in fact Metropole Blue (which worked with the Lapis). Maybe they ticked the wrong box on the order form of this one? haha
