Details Specification
  • A 'C16' UK-supplied, right-hand drive 993 Targa. Desirable manual gearbox and only 23,916 miles from new
  • The last of the hand-built 911s
  • All-glass retractable roof rather than removable panels - cementing the link between heightened functionality and aesthetic form
  • Less than 24,000 miles from new with service book, manuals, and spare keys

The 993 Targa was released in the 1996 model year and showcased a retractable glass roof dubbed the “greenhouse” system which would continue to feature on the 996 and 997 models. The glass roof slides underneath the rear window creating an open-air motoring experience without the hassle of a convertible. The new design allowed the Targa to retain the same profile as the other Carrera variants and freed the driver from the inconvenience of storing the detached roof. Delivered on the 28th of August 1997, this particular Arctic Silver C2 Targa with the desirable six-speed manual gearbox has covered less than 24,000 miles from new. Leaving the factory with Sport Seats, Optional Rear Wiper, and a Graduated Tint Windshield, the condition throughout is exceptional and would be extremely difficult to better. Accompanied by a complete book pack, numerous invoices, previous MOT Certificates, and spare keys. A true long-distance tourer with the look of the Coupé but the benefits of a convertible. Viewing of this outstanding Targa comes highly recommended to any potential future custodian.

This car has formed part of a significant collection for the past few years. In preparation for the sale, the engine will be flushed, filled with fresh oil and a new filter fitted, the fuel tank drained, flushed and filled with 20 litres of fuel, fitted with a new battery and issued with a fresh MOT Certificate. A safety check will also be carried out along with an inspection report included in the history file.
