The third and most recent owner divided winters and summers with the car in Florida and New York, respectively. It has won multiple Concours events around the New York area including PCA shows. This 993 has extensive history including immense service records, original window sticker, original books, Porsche COA, tool kit, and jack. It has been remarkably maintained regardless of cost. This is an exceptional opportunity to own a pristine and very original 993.
