This RS is one of just 49 right hand drive examples supplied new to the UK market. Finished in Midnight Blue with black and grey leather interior the car features a great specification including hardback sports seats, factory air conditioning and blue seat belts and door pulls. The car is in exceptional original condition and unlike so many has not been modified from standard. It has covered 51,000 miles and comes with a full service history, all books, tools and keys.
The car was supplied when new by AFN Porsche in Reading to a Mr Fuller, a regular Porsche customer and resident of Oxfordshire. Since then the car has passed through the hands of a number of clearly careful enthusiasts each of whom has continued to use Official Porsche Centres for servicing and maintenance. This is documented in the original stamped service book and in a full set of invoices present with MOT certificates in the history file.
In 2007 the car was purchased by Mr Andrew Hodge, a long-term Porsche enthusiast ? he had long been seeking such a car to join his private collection of exceptional cars. He used the carvery occasionally and only on dry summer roads until 2014 when Hairpin purchased the car. Following purchase we sent the car to Dick Lovett Porsche in Swindon for a full checkover and major service. Any area found wanting was addressed. Following a professional detailing we sold the car immediately to another Porsche collector who purchased it the day after it arrived.
We repurchased the car in 2015 and again sent it to Dick Lovett for inspection and service. Following this we once again sold the car to a local enthusiast who has a small private collection of exceptional original cars. He has used the car on a few occasions. It has always been stored in his dehumidified motor house. Dick Lovett Porsche have continued to maintain the car.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase an excellent original example of the rare and desirable 993 RS model. This RS has not been altered from its original specification and retains all of the factory applied paper stickers, under the bonnet and in the door shuts. It drives in a very fluent way displaying a tightness one only finds in a lightly used well-maintained example. It comes with all books including the rare RS supplement, tools, keys and the abovementioned history file.
