Just a message to say goodbye! It’s been emotional! Very Happy

Thanks to everyone on 911uk for being so helpful and generally all round nice people over the nearly 9 years I’ve had the 993.

It’s been an absolutely amazing car, I have loved every minute of it, and I will miss it, but time for a change after all this time.

The 993 absolutely deserves its reputation as a reliable, usable, and massively enjoyable classic.

Ignore the doom and gloom about ‘nothing selling’ at the moment etc. My car sold within 4 hours, for the full asking price, and I could have sold it 5 times over. I had several people offer to transfer me the full amount the same day without even seeing it.

A trader offered me £30k for it, and I was told by numerous ‘classic Porsche experts’ that I would have to accept approx £38k for a private sale. One well known classic Pork dealer told me he had barely managed to sell anything since June.

It was all complete lies. Lies I tell you! Very Happy

Some final photos:











Time to go car shopping! Very Happy

Congrats on the sale Ningapower
Another long term 993 owner moves on.
I had mine 6 and thought that was a long time but 9 yrs is a testament to the 993 and how good it is?

You sticking around on 911uk?
What’s next
All the best Thumb

I’ll still be around!

The Mrs has a Cayenne S, so I’ll be relegated to the odd post in the Cayenne forum from now on!

Next for me? Ferrari 360 or Alfa 4C, but I simply cannot decide which one to buy.

First world problems and all that...

Congrats! If the figures the dealers were throwing out for a private sale were bs, do you mind sharing roughly what you did actually sell for and the mileage?

124k Miles - C2 Varioram Manual.

Asked £xxxk on a big Facebook retro/sportscars group, and my phone nearly melted.

No exaggeration I had people messaging me and saying they would pay more than whoever I had agreed to sell it to.

I deliberately avoided advtertising it on Porsche Facebook groups and forums due to the amount of cars getting advertised on them and not even getting a sniff (including 993’s).

What a great looking car. I'm not up to speed on all things 993 but if some asked me what it was for sale at I would have said £60k.

Absolutely!

I watched a lovely, super clean, 993 C2 Manual coupe in arena red go though Silverstone Auctions a couple of months ago. Only 65k miles and low owners and it made £35k and I wasn’t going to let that happen to me!

Mine mostly attracted the attention of non-Porsche enthusiasts who said things like “I normally don’t like old Porsches, but that thing is porn” etc. And that was certainly reflected in the sales price.

It’s a real nice car for the new owner, so that’s all that matters in the end.

People who saw it, and weren’t 993 nerds like me, always assumed it was a lot more than it’s true value.

Congrats on the sale Tim, no shock you had little difficulty selling it. Anyone would struggle to find Arena Red looking as stunning as yours. thumbsup

Well done with the sale Tim - I personally think someone got a bargain.
If ever a 993 said 'I'm here' - it was yours Thumb

As ever, that car looks magnificent. Good luck with your next toy, it's been a pleasure chatting about non-Illuminati approved mods (19" wheels, etc!).

Soooooooooo much beauty for c£40k. worship

To think that some people pay 100x that for works of art they can only hang on a wall.

That colour looks stunning. I think it would suit the newer models too and nicely dilute the amount of blacks, greys and silver cars we see.

Congrats on the sale, Ninjapower - I'd be grateful if you would send me a PM with details of the group you sold your 993 on. Am still debating selling mine and swapping for an LHD aircooled piece of pork!
