Is this the car Portiacraft had not that long ago? If so its had circa £10K added to the price since then.

The interior is definitely an acquired taste.

Shocking interior, but I do like the leather steering wheel centre. Is that an "exclusive" option?

Acquired taste? I guess I might acquire it, when I lose my sight.

It was quite interesting untill I got to the interior arghh........
What a shame it looks very good from the outside but that interior must have been a special order and cost plenty of wonga in its day, don't think the 41k price tag is justified IMO. Dont know

Oh god, I do like the guys a lot at Byfleet, but that interior! I can see it fetching that money if it had a more standard interior, but can only imagine it hanging around for a while with such extreme Exclusive options.

Unless there's a Bentley or Rolls driver swanning around Surrey who needs a more sporty number to charms the fillies with:



What was wrong with people in the 90's speccing so much grey and blue leather and quite often wood? Especially in 1998!?

I doubt Dom would go for it as it has Satan's gearbox and he hates blue or grey interiors. I guess blue and grey combined would be worse, not better?!

I think the dealer will throw in a leather chesterfield to help them get used to it.

Reminds me of my old club in Pall Mall

It was going so well, putting the fact that it is a tip aside, until the last two pics nooo

I remember seeing this car advertised for a lot less at Potiacraft.

To think that the original purchaser could have specified black leather and carbon fibre instead, for the same money I suspect bonk

I would go for it, as long as those boys fitted it with a digital talking dashboard cluster.

Come on Dom, you would look very retro in that at Windsor. We promise to give you 10 points head start. I'll buy you a pair of driving slippers to go with it.

Had a good look at this yesterday whilst they were fitting my new Dansk 100 cell cat (on which - Cool ).

It does look in fantastic nick if you can live with the interior and Tip.

Did Portiacraft not also have to reduced it alittle to get it shifted?

I'm a MASSIVE fan of the 993 but I think a the £40K+ C2S is getting hard to justify. This thought is not helped when cars such as this are bought from either Independents or private sellers and find they're way to into OPC's, pitched at a hugely inflated price point.

I am assuming there is no Porsche warranty in this case as the car is outside the 10 year limit. Correct?
