1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa – Introduced in 1993 for the 1994 model year and in time for the 911’s 30th anniversary, the 993 would be the very last of the air-cooled Porsches before the company moved on to the water-cooled 996 for the New Millenium, a step that nobody would have expected a generation earlier and one that frustrated Porsche-philes. It was a hugely important car for Porsche that came at a formative, turbulent time. By the mid-1990s, the front-engined cars were all gone and there was a brief time – the 1996 model year – that the Boxster hadn’t arrived yet and the 993 was the only model in Porsche’s lineup. The 993 is collectible for a lot of reasons. It’s not just that it’s the last air-cooled car. It’s the blend of classic 911 looks, heritage and sound with modern technology and conveniences. Many consider it to be the best looking of all 911s as well, and it’s certainly one of the most rewarding cars to drive, even if some of the newer 911s are quicker.
This Porsche is part of a small collection owned by a very meticulous collector. Every vehicle that passes through his collection is always well sourced, extremely clean, and maintained with an open checkbook. From time to time the vehicles are rotated out to make room for new acquisitions. This extremely clean 911 Targa is one of the nicest you will find on the market and has under 61k miles in its 24 years on the road.
