This prior owner had his Porsche cars maintained here at Bodymotion for many years. His family reached out to us to handle the sale of the cars which included this one. Once we picked it up from their garage, we performed what amounted to a pre – purchase inspection. We found on the body; bubbling paint around the rear glass, a known issue on some 993 series cars. An estimate was written and approved for the PROPER repair which included the removal of the glass that had to be replaced ( one time uses 50% of the time, this one had to be replaced) with a PORSCHE rear glass. As well as, in true Bodymotion fashion, all rust was removed and repaired and a paint blend was performed up to about the sunroof and down twords the rear deck. There are also buffer burn marks on both “hips” of the car. After the complete color correction detail, we decided to leave these instead of re – painting half the car. We are satisfied with the results.
Next it was mechanical; oil leaks!! No surprise on a car that sat for quite sometime. In this case, an estimate was written and approved for an engine reseal. While in there, the bores, crank and pistons were inspected and did not need replacement. New rings were installed along with new gaskets at the base. Oil sending units oil thermostats were replaced as well. The top end received a de carbon and a complete performance valve job with new valve seats and guides and all. This car had a light weight flywheel and clutch that looked perfect and was retained. Along with an exhaust and intake kit, this 993 C4s sounds great, revs fast and pulls super strong! We also changed all filters, oil changed, brake fluid flushed, front brake pads replaced, gear box fluid changed, new plugs installed. We also found ware marks deep in the wire harness that could of caused future problems. We replaced it with a factory harness. This and more were corrected on this C4s. This 993 also received a proper wheel alignment to maximize the Bilstein suspension and a road force balance of all four wheels. This 993 goes down the road straight, vibration free and tight at any speed! We have over $24,000 in receipts and it is now ready for it’s next owner!
As this was a rear seat delete car, the owner upgraded the audio system with a custom made amp, woofer, speaker box on top of the interior “luggage” area and a 6 disk CD changer in one of the factory storage boxes. All is of the era Fujitsu Ten “ Eclipse” components. Love or hate it, we decided to leave it.This system must have been a fortuneback in the day. If you are looking for a “period correct modified” C4s, you found it! If looking for bone stock, probably not your car. When new, options were: 220, 224 Auto Locking Diff 40%, 329 Blaupunkt Toronto ( missing), 413 18 Inch Turbo Look Wheels,419 Rear Luggage Dump aka rear seat delete. This came with cool storage boxes that are perfectly intact! 423 Holder for Cassettes and Coins, 445 Wheel Caps with Colored Crest, 454 Cruise Control, 544 19.8 Gal Fuel Tank, 601 Litronic Headlights,, 650 Sunroof, 437&438 Comfort Power Seats left & right.
All that is needed at this point is it’s new owner to enjoy it!!
