Porsche 993 Targa


This Porsche 993 Targa dates from late 1997, so it’s one of the very last air-cooled 911s made before the all-new 996 came along. What’s more it’s had the same lady owner for the last 20 years and just one owner before that, and the mileage is refreshingly low at 60,350 miles.

This desirable Porsche is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic with 17inch Cup wheels and rear wiper.

The interior is Metropole Blue leather with hard-backed Sports seats, air-conditioning, Sound System, trip computer, and a Tracker. The Porsche has the original PA1000 alarm system with fobs and ‘red key’.

The Porsche has a meticulous history, with documents going right back to 2000, including the MoT certificates. The car was main-dealer serviced until 2008 then it went to Porsche specialists. We have undertaken a lot of work on it to ensure that it meets our standards. This includes a major service, all new brake discs and pads, new front bump stops, all new tyres, and various other items.

The 993 Targa was only sold in 1996 and 1997. The 993 reinvented the Targa concept, with a large glass roof which, at the touch of a button, retracts under the rear window to give wind in the hair motoring. When closed, the glass panel gives the interior a light and airy feel, while another button operates a blind to keep out strong sun. It’s a clever system.

If you are unable to get to us, please get in touch as we can make a personalised video or organise a conference call to show you around the car, covering all aspects you want to see. We are based in the historic village of Bosham, on the south coast of England, nestled between the South Downs and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a lovely area to visit and you are still very welcome to come and view our stock or just have a chat about cars!

You won’t get a hard sell but you will get friendly and professional advice to ensure that we find exactly the right car for you. We have sold hundreds of Porsches and other specialist cars and have a vast experience to share with you.

Each car we sell goes through a thorough mechanical inspection and any faults found put right before sale. This ensures that your new car is ready for you to enjoy from day one, without you having to worry about a thing. In the unlikely event you have a problem, we include a six-month warranty underwritten by us. We stand by this warranty so, if you have any issue with your Porsche, wherever you are in the UK, we will work with you to put things right, without any quibble or fuss. So do please get in touch for a chat and to arrange a visit or a live video. Part exchange and finance available – please click the Finance button below for details.

Philip Raby says: “I’ve always liked the glass-roofed 911 Targas – it’s a clever idea that gives the cars a unique character. This example benefits from a relatively low mileage and a great history.”
