The last of Porsche’s air-cooled 911s was the 993 body style. Produced from 1994-1998, with model years 1995-1998 in the United States, this version had a 3.6L air-cooled engine that produced 282 hp (270hp in 1994-1995). Also specific to the 993 were the “soft” body lines of the front fenders, the angled front headlights, suspension that incorporated a kinematic toe adjustment, and a newly introduced 6 speed G-50 transmission.
993s were offered in several variants including: Carrera 2 (2 wheel, rear wheel drive), Carrera 4 (all-wheel drive), Carrera S (2 wheel drive wide body), Carrera 4S (all-wheel drive wide body), 911 Turbo (all-wheel drive twin turbo), and the Targa (2 wheel drive with a glass targa roof).
Porsche introduced the Targa option to the 911 series in 1967 with a removable Targa top with a removable “soft” rear window. A glass rear window followed in 1968 and remained the standard until the introduction of the 993 Targa. This was the FIRST Targa variant without a removable top. Instead, the entire glass targa roof was designed to slide back and open without having to be removed.
Ultimately, the demand for the 993 Targa was limited, making it one of the rarest of the 993 variants produced.
Our Targa is in pristine original condition with only just over 40,000 documented miles. It is optioned with cruise control, leather seats, upgraded stereo system, and upgraded Porsche rims. All books, manuals, tools, jack, compressor, and all available records accompany the car. Finally, it is recently serviced.
A wonderful addition to any collection in the world, this rare 993 is an absolutely stunning Porsche.
