So the big day arrived and Hexagon delivered my 1994 993.

I’ve bought a lot of cars over the years but this has blown me away.

For a 25 year old car it basically looks and drives like brand new, amazingly tight and together on the road.

I tried to buy through a Porsche specialist who didn’t even call me back which is strange when enquiring to spend 70k plus so that wasn’t a great start but Hexagon have been bloody amazing to be honest.

I know they want top dollar on the face of it but with a superb inspection report and a nothing is too much trouble experience with Jonathan Franklin it’s actually been a very simple and stress free process.

Great to be behind the wheel of a 911 again and to finally fulfil my long held air cooled ambition.

The previous thread about your purchase did make me laugh. I think I was the only person to agree with you about the 993 pre purchase when all the rest were knocking Hexagon,telling you to buy the widebody etc etc and then after purchase it was all a complete about turnaround with everybody offering congrats. I think it looks fantastic,far better than a lard arse! As in the new 911 and Porsche World they pick a pre vario C2 as the pick of all the 993's on test.

Huh? I’d buy a wide body every time! But I still love the NB cars and that looks a top example. The man’s nipples are hard he is so exited so how can any of us not be pleased for the fella? 🤪

Haha 6ft 4 tall so not quite 9ft and hard nipples mainly due wind blowing a frigging gale 😂

Congrats. Thumb

Not sure what stichill99 is on about as i'm sure there were others favouring the Hexagon car or similar.

Now that is scary , that you noticed the Giants nipples when there is a classic Porsche in the photo …..!!

It is stunning in yellow, some models suit the colour & some don't... this one certainly does ….
NB/WB... all great cars ….
