Don't know the car or seller, but I reckon this is pretty much my idea NB car, with the possible exception of the wheels.

Ok, it's been relatively busy, but seems well looked after.

Surely good value at £35k? Not sure how it stacks up in the eyes of the illuminati in respect of mileage, not sure it would bother me. If it could be haggled down towards £30k, would surely be a good buy for someone?

Just needs some WB skirts...... :floor:

SUMMARY:
A very clean and useable entry level classic 993 manual coupe in a timeless colour with good service history.

PRICE:
£34,495.
 
Great colour and honest mileage. SH looks good with the exception of no annual services in 2010 & 2011.
Wheels are not everyone's cuppa but at least they're OEM and in keeping with the period of the car.

You fancy dipping your toe again Outlander? ;)

Nice!

2 too many wheel drive other wise I'd be enquiring about a deal on my 996. :D
 
Now that does look good in the pics and great price.........Zingari will pull it to pieces in a minute :hand:
 
every slate grey 993 i've come across has been pre-vario, such a shame as its a great colour imo.
 
Just realised that I've met the 2 guys that run that business, went to Spa with them last year. :oops:

Must stop looking at 993's......... :what:
 
What a cracking looking car... just run in with that mileage. Would need to change the wheels and get a black steering wheel for me, but other than that, it looks beautiful. Love that grey.

It's a manual, with air con, and sunroof, (which personally I love) and stunning nb.

I'd say that was a good price.

Have to admit to being quite tempted by that car! Learnt a few lessons the last time round.

No such thing as the perfect car is there? :lol:

Grey interior is OK (prefer black but definitely better than blue) but otherwise I'm in!

What's all this tosh about it being a shame that its pre-vario . . . :dont know:
At least you're guaranteed of getting the G21 shorter ratio box. :thumb: It feels a somewhat cammier engine, which simply loves to ping from 4k rpm to the redline. Put an RS LWF in the thing and its perfect for everyday use.
Can't for the life of me think why that would put anyone off . . . :bandit:
 
I like those wheels on a 993 :oops:

Have you driven a pre vario car?

I'm with HPNer and prefer the shorter ratio's and more visceral feel of the earlier car against the Varioram S I previously owned.

Either way I'd buy on condition, history and of course the colour combination that ticks your box.

Yes! Might have been a Porsche Cars GB car, would be interested to know reg numbers. They used to spec them in Slate Grey. Mine was, then AFN. I have a journo friend who worked on Fast Lane and remembers the numbers. But would probably have had sports seats if so.

What's going on with the wheels?

Quite correct Phil ....... but some people just listen to the hype and really don't know much about the differences and subtleties between the two engines.

It's in one of my favourite colours ....... apart from Riviera Blue of course ...... ;) ........ but that grey interior kills if for me ........ grey on grey ........ Noooooo I don't think so ........ Marble would have been OK though.
 
Does look a decent buy, spend a few quid to personalize it, all good. Wheels are ok for me although I prefer/have sport classic 2 splits. I like the cup1's, but of course they are 17's and I like the way 18's and the tyre combo looks on the car.Don't like the Twist solids(why didn't they hand them?) or those horrible big spokey things they sometimes fitted to the C4's.
