Model 993 Car­rera 2 Year 1994

Ac­quired De­cem­ber 2014

An­other month im­mersed in the world of Porsche, but now I can speak about some things I’ve been up to. You’ll have read my first de­tails on the 992 in last month’s is­sue, hav­ing to sit on those since I un­der­took the trip in July, that mak­ing the sum­mer feel longer than it was. Win­ter’s here now, though I’ve still been busy with work, as well as driv­ing the 993 a fair bit.

Lots of fairly or­di­nary miles if I’m be­ing hon­est, the 993 reg­u­larly pressed into ser­vice as a daily driver – which I think is a good thing as it gets heat cy­cles and oil right through the en­gine and en­sures the seals do the job they’re de­signed for. Use your cars, peo­ple, they’re all the bet­ter for it.

It’s good to see I’m not alone in think­ing that, as late Oc­to­ber saw me get the Car­rera out to visit the open­ing of Caf­feine & Ma­chine, a new cof­fee/ bar desti­na­tion in War­wick­shire cater­ing for ev­ery motoring per­sua­sion and per­ver­sion. The owner, Phil, counts a 993 RS and 912 among his daily driv­ers, so if you’re in the area, pop by, or if not make it a desti­na­tion as there are some sen­sa­tional driv­ing roads in the area. You’ll find de­tails at caf­feine­and­ma­ and some­thing in­ter­est­ing in the car park, I guar­an­tee it.

At the open­ing the 993 was in good com­pany, with all man­ner of Porsche mix­ing with ev­ery other type of car and bike imag­in­able – all out de­spite the wet weather. As much as I love a Porsche – and a 911 in par­tic­u­lar – I’m a faith­ful devo­tee at the broad church of the motoring world, the Kar­mann Ghia I parked be­side re­mind­ing me where my love of Porsche blos­somed – though the VW scene and mag­a­zines of it.

All that has got me won­der­ing whether I should per­haps move the

993 on to make way for some other metal. I’m cur­rently 50/50, but with a new baby in­com­ing (as in a small child, rather than a new car) the 993 will likely end up sit­ting in the garage un­used for lengthy pe­ri­ods of time, and it de­serves to be driven reg­u­larly. Watch this space…
