    I like the fact it has no sun roof and no rear wiper (quite a few have that here).

    What color wrap will you get for it?







    Looks like a nice one.

    go for an ichicho-style wrap. It'll show up the guy who springs for pink pig livery.

    About to pull the trigger on this 993 X51 if the technical inspection goes well friday. After being all over the map between 964, 993, cab, no cab... I came back tp my sense with a C2 3.8L. Excited !

    Lovely car. It's what, twenty-five years old or so? Perfect condition from the looks of it.

    'Course, there aren't any cupholders...

    Yep it's a 1995. And yes no cup holders for sure. I am going there with my "expert" friend for a very detailed technical inspection. It has only 125000km on it.

    My 86 Porsche had a "cupholder" on the lid of the glovebox when you folded it it down (open). It was maybe a centimeter or two deep - for parking only!

    Great looking car!!

    In the US the 1995 993 is a bit of a unicorn. Doesn't have and ODB2 sensor, so can't fail inspection for check engine lights, especially since their secondary air systems liked to coke up. Be sure to inspect the door check straps and where they insert into the A-pillar... there is some weakness there and the metal can snap.

    At first chance, make sure you rotate those wheelcaps so the point of the shield points to the valve stem. Otherwise it wouldn't be Porsche approved and Vsalon proper.
    Congrats and enjoy!

    Nice car. The headlamps look great, no fog. Are they upgrades?

    You know, good question I do not know. The fog lamps maybe down below near the signals. Not that I plan to drive this in the fog :)

    I think by no fog he meant the headlamps look crystal clear compared to headlights of comparable age that have suffered under direct sun light and have lost their clearness (compare to those on the bumper). AFAIK there are way to restore those old plastics with some abrasive paste (some use a mix of baking soda and dental paste as an alternative).

    Ah yes I see now. The headlights are glass I think. They may have been changed not sure. I will see how they actually work at night. Some of these things look more like 2 candles upfront compared to modern LED. Which of course can be found as well for this as an upgrade.
