Porsche 993 buyers are very fussy about mileage. More so than any other model of Porsche; if a 993 has super-low mileage, the price will be higher. If, on the other hand, the mileage is slightly higher, than the price drops accordingly.
This is an odd situation when you consider that the 993 has one of the most reliable and tough engines of all 911s. So long as the car’s been properly maintained, there’s no reason why a higher mileage example shouldn’t be a problem.
I’m just been driving this example. It’s got 110,000 miles on the clock yet has been well-maintained by a known Porsche specialist and it’s an absolute joy to drive. It’s feels tight, fresh and with that factory originality that’s so sought after. Simply because of the mileage, it’s priced at just £16,995 – if it had done even two-thirds of that mileage it would be over £20,000.
This is great news if you’re in the market for a 993 but don’t want to pay top money. Choose a cared for higher mileage example like this and you will save, literally, thousands of pounds. Just don’t tell everyone otherwise prices will go up! 🙂
