August 1996–P Registration Porsche 993 Carrera C4S Coupe with Factory Option Code X79 Side Air Inlets. 6-Speed Manual Gearbox. Finished in Grand Prix White with Metropole Blue leather Hard Backed Sport Seats.
This unique example comes complete with a raft of service history as well as the original silver Guarantee and Maintenance Booklet and benefits from a Porsche Strasse (well known Porsche Specialist in Leeds) Engine Rebuild less than 2,100 miles ago in March 2014 (Invoiced supplied as part of the service record).
Purchased from a lovely gentleman who at the time had hunted high and low for a wide bodied normally aspirated model with the X79 model option. As luck would have it he came across this particular car which ticked all the right boxes and was both cosmetically and mechanically A1.
I had the privilege of driving the car back to base when we collected it and I can say without hesitation that I’ve never had so many people craning necks to get a look at the car. At first I thought it was me that they were staring at but realised very quickly that it was in fact this magnificent wide bodied 993 with all its road presence.
A C16 UK RHD car supplied new by Evans Halshaw in the West Midlands (now Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield) back in August 1996. The original service book bears the factory Vehicle Identification Sticker which is a copy of the one that sits on the underside of the front bonnet and comes complete with factory option, these include the X79 Air Inlets in the Rear Side Panels (rear quarters), Hard Backed Sports Seats, Top Tint Windscreen, High Level Brake Light, and Sunroof.
A mixture of Evans Halshaw Little Aston main, JCT600 in Leeds, AFN London and Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield stamps make up the early service history of this car (1996-2005) with a move thereafter to the guys at Porsche Strasse (A well known Porsche Specialist) in Leeds. They have looked after the since September 2006 and have carried out a number of large ticket jobs including the supply and fit of a Xenon headlamp conversion kit (at 81,978 miles), replacing the clutch and flywheel (at 84,000 miles), front shocks (at 90,541 miles), and an engine rebuild (at 91,211 miles in 2014). On top of that they have replaced the front and rear discs on more than one occasion and carried out the swap from summer to winter wheels and tyres again on more than one occasion.
I used an expression or description when writing the advert for the lovely 993 Cabriolet that we had in stock recently and seeing as I’m a creature of habit I feel it’s only right that I steal a line from that advert or coin the phrase and say that this car is a complete one-off, and currently the only 993 ‘S’ wide bodied normally aspirated example with the X79 option. In my book that makes this a rare example and not one to be missed!
