Forget the miles, look at the investment in upgrades

330 BHP

https://rpmtechnik.co.uk/sales/vehicle/993-carrera-3-8/

Quote:
PORSCHE 993 CARRERA 3.8
£65,995
Registration: 1996/P

Mileage: 137,000

Colour: Basalt Black

Interior: Marble grey

History: Full Service History

This Carrera 2 was supplied by AFN Chiswick on the 6th September 1996. Since then the car has been maintained by Porsche dealer and respected Porsche specialists throughout. The car was first serviced by us in 2013 where upon the car went through an extensive program of works. The engine had a full rebuild from a 3.6 to a 3.8 including GT3 crankshaft, Custom Arrow rods, Mahle 3.8 barrell & piston set up, mechanical rocker arm and shaft tappet modification, Super Cup custom camshafts, Varioram stripped clean and rebuilt plus all gaskets, seals and bearings. The car was then set up by Chipwizzards to achieve 330bhp. Following these works the gearbox was also rebuilt with the inclusion of a LSD and any other parts required. The car runs on Bilstein coilovers with a 993 RS geometry ride height and set up so is at home both on road and track. The total investment into this 993 easily runs past £50,000, making the final car stunning value for money. The car has just been serviced and MOT’d by ourselves to ensure it is fit and ready to be enjoyed by the next owner.

The history file includes MOT’s back to 2000, Hundreds of invoices for the works carried out along with routine service items, Two service booklets (first booklet full of stamps!). Along with the history are 2 keys, Porsche booklets and a variety of the standard parts.

Yep that’s the real deal, you can keep your low mileage garage queens I’d take something like that everyday. The sad fact is most people will probably overlook it as it doesn’t provide the right investment opportunity

Liking that... some well chosen upgrades that will make a standard looking 993 go rather well. Bandit

Well priced considering the investment IMO.

Very nice spec! Cool

Small observation: the advert states:
"The car runs on Bilstein coilovers with a 993 RS geometry ride height"

However, the pic looks more like M033/Sport when you compare the arch gap with a genuine RS:

It does look a little high compared with my own RS ride height Bilsteins, however I imagine just a small error on RPM's part and i'm sure can be forgiven for that stonking engine and mod list. Thumb

1993 Porsche 964 Anniversary

PostPosted: Tue Sep 11, 2018 7:41 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

If you're going to use all the power ie on a track then fair enough.

However this car has a limited buyer market as it's a Carrera that's been messed with so for investment (given we're talking 993 Rolling Eyes ) you'd be better going balls deep and sinking your dough in a 993S Bandit

Mileage will put a lot off. End of Rolling Eyes

In reality it should fetch a premium over a low mileage lard arse that probably needs half its consumables replacing. Plus it’s so easy to fudge the mileage on these cars I don’t trust a lot of the low mileage examples that keep coming out of the woodwork.

As time progresses unless its ultra low mileage i.e less than 30k which from a depreciation vs milage perspective will basiclally be a paper weight I think buyers will become more interested in a sorted car and less bothered about being below the stupid 100k mark which has zero bearing on condition and future spend in a lot of cases.

+1 whether low or high mileage I just judge on condition of car. No other way really IMO

By way of example the low mileage yellow 993 C2 with 24k miles in ph classifieds. I'd stake my life that cars done at least 40-50k miles - had a good snoop around her. Sold to you with 24k miles lol

Totally agree with this. Have seen engines opened up which really don’t add up to the figure on the speedometer. Apparently it also remains rife on modern cars with the added incentives of lease and agreed value finance mileage limits and avoiding servicing on time/mileage based intervals.
