This weekend’s Classic Motor Show at the NEC featured the annual Silverstone Auctions Sale, and the quality of this years entries was once again top notch.
Sitting pretty in the centre of the auction area were a brace of Porsche 993 models, the oft-forgotten 911 of the mid 1990s that’s due it’s turn in the classic car limelight.
Porsches of the 60s and 70s get plenty of attention on the classic car scene, and judging by the results achieved by the five models listed below, there has never been a better time to invest in a Porsche 993…
The 5 Porsche 993s of the Silverstone Auction, NEC Classic Motor Show 2014:
Lot No 332: 1996 Porsche 911 993 Targa Manual
Sale Price: £47,725
Lot No 348: 1996 Porsche 911 993 Turbo X50
Sale Price: £90,000
Lot No 613: 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Targa S Tiptronic (White)
Sale Price: £42,188
Lot No 624: 1998 Porsche 911 993 C2
Sale Price: £48,375
Lot No 626: 1995 Porsche 911 993 Carrera RS (Red)
Sale Price: £159,750
The real question is though, which Porsche 993 would Good Shout Media go for?
Of the cars sold at the Silverstone Auction at the Classic Motor Show, it just has to be the Yellow 993 C2. Those Cup wheels, that paintwork… it’s almost the perfect 911, however if there had been a Turbo in Arena Red, then that would have clinched it.
Maybe next time we spot a Porsche 993 at a Silverstone Auction we’ll be bidding instead of blogging!
