Sales Spotlight: Porsche 993 Carrera RS

Classic Porsche specialist, Maxted-Page is well known for selling some of the most prestigious pre-impact bumper 911s ever built. However, Lee Maxted-Page’s eponymous company also does a pretty good trade in later air-cooled machinery, as evidenced by this Porsche 993 Carrera RS.

As awesome as a 993 RS is, you may think that the last air-cooled Rennsport is a fairly uninspired choice for our first Sales Spotlight (especially if you were to look through the rest of Maxted-Page’s current offerings) however, this particular Porsche 911 has an ace up its sleeve.

While just over a 1,000 Porsche 993 Carrera RSs were built between 1995 and 1996, only 49 of them were built in right-hand drive. Maxted-Page’s Midnight Blue metallic example – with 57,000 miles on the clock – is one of those 49 cars.

In ‘Comfort’ guise (albeit fitted with period Sabelt harnesses), this 993 is the perfect B-road weapon for British (or Australian, if you’re reading this from Down Under) Porsche 911 collectors, with enough luxury to make longer journeys bearable but a devastating turn of pace when the mood takes you.

As you’d expect from a car offered from Maxted-Page, this particular 993 RS’s history is immaculate. Originally sold in June 1995 via AFN (the original Porsche importer before PCGB), the Carrera RS passed onto its second owner in December of that year.

Since then though, it has only been through one more owner, passing onto its latest custodian in 2001. The current owner has kept the car serviced fastidiously at Porsche Bournemouth (a Total 911 award-winning OPC) and is offered with all its original tools, keys and books.

Other than the seatbelts, a switch to silver (rather than black) badging on the decklid and the fitment of a RUF front strut brace replacing the original Porsche item, Maxted-Page’s 993 RS features no major modifications and the car hasn’t been used on track during the last 14 years.

We’ve seen the car in the metal and it is a truly stunning example, made even more special (for us, at least) by the location of the steering wheel. Understandably, given this 911’s rarity, the 993 Carrera RS is listed on Maxted-Page’s website as POA.
