Hi all,

I just want to share my excitement with you chaps on my first Porsche, my teenage dream car -- 6-speed 993 C2S. It’s metallic black with beige interior. There are not too many choices here in Hong Kong especially ones with original manual gearbox. It's a rare opportunity that a manual 2S pops up in this market. I was preparing to import one from the UK otherwise. This is a 4-owner UK car which left the country in 2008. Although it doesn't have complete history, but they are satisfactory to my extent. I also got a PPI with compression test at a local indy. The car is pretty much original except KW coilovers and stereo speakers.

Ken

Stunning looking car, only ever seen one black/tan for sale before, and that was quite some years ago by 911 Virgin...maybe it is that car?!??

Dread to think what it is costing you to own a car like that in HK, I've heard it is expensive??

Enjoy every minute....just given mine up Sad Sad Sad

Welcome


The previous owner got the car through a trade called Hayward in Kent in 2006. It had 38000 miles on it and he paid 29500 quid. I guess it answers the other thread when the 993 price bottom out. When the previous owner acquired the S, a third party consultant performed a PPI with detailed report too. I’m quite impressed with it. Then, he’s kept the car for 13 years.

I feel 50 pounds lighter after the transaction, but you only live once. Why not?! Very Happy

I bet once you got your home improvement project sorted, you’ll get back into a 993 in no time. thumbsup

Question: In the first image “image_17.jpg”, is it normal to have the handbrake lever tilted so far towards the driver seat? I might need to get this sorted although it doesn’t really affect the functionality of it.

I’m loving this topic. My 993 is black with a black dash and steering wheel. Carpets and seats are tan. I’d always assumed I had the low rent colour scheme (maybe because I started with a 996 where a similar interior was known as “suicide savanna”).

Now I find my car has moved from ugly duckling to beautiful. I have to say I’ve always liked the tan interior.

That interior is so good my nipples have hardened. If I had a black car I'd want this interior badly.
