    I keep coming back to this 993 admiring it’s classic color combo. I also appreciate the owner’s careful summary of the maintenance work.

    Being a ‘96 this has the Varioram engine which produced 282HP and 250TQ. The specs quoted in the writeup are for a ‘95 model.

    Owner please advise what the white spot is on the bonnet. Has something eaten through
    the paint or is it a photo blemish?
    Does the canvas have a small hole and cut in it?
    Is the paint original or a part or total repaint?

    Interested Party’s, this vehicle is one you can on in being in excellent mechanical condition due to the repairs that have been completed during the 4 years I have owned it; these were not due to mistreatments but due to 23 years in age & normal attrition of mechanical parts; with a straight face & receipts to back me up plus the two shops that have serviced it, this car is literally ready for another 23 years reality worry free; this baby is being offered for fair market value only, otherwise I will continue to enjoy the joy of driving the car & benefiting from the sizable investment I have incurred; this is the third 911 I have owned;
