In the 1950s, the Porsche 356 had been in production for too many years, so the Stuttgart-based car manufacturer decided to create a new model. The technical project was followed by Ferry Porsche, while the aesthetic one was followed by his son Ferdinand called “Butzi". He tried in every way to create a cabin that was suitable for four people. Soon, however, he gave up on this feat and turned to the classic 2+2. Immediately, the line of the car turned out to be elegant and balanced. From 1963, the year of presentation of the first version, to 1997, the year of production of the last 993s, all the 911s that left the German factories of the Stuttgart company were united by a golden trait d'union, which allowed Porsche to create a true religion on this engine philosophy, in all its 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder versions. From that wonderful 8th June 1948 up to those cold autumn days of 1997, the Porsche engine has always been strictly air-cooled.
The last real 911 was the 993 Turbo version. The "Flat six" cantilevered rear engine was the last of the series to be air-cooled. Permanent all-wheel drive and new rear suspension. This version had a consistent restyling by Tony Hatter compared to the model that preceded it, the more inclined front lights and a different cut of the rear light clusters that forced the designers to redesign both bumpers. The rear spoiler was completely painted in the colour of the bodywork.
It was the first production car to have a flat bottom, which significantly improved the car's aerodynamics and stability.
This elegant car in metallic silver grey (L92M) is matching number in everything, in the chassis, in the engine, in the gearbox, in its beautiful interior of real Blue night leather. It is also equipped with an electric sunroof, has covered only 137,000 km in 23 years, with Porsche certification 111 points of recent production.

The Jaguar E-Type was produced in 1961 to match and outperform the other sports cars in those years. It was immediately noticed by enthusiasts for its revolutionary design and exceptional driving and aesthetic characteristics. It was designed by Malcom Sayer in coupe and Open Two Seater versions. With its graceful and robust curved lines it was so successful that 3 series were produced. The first series was presented with important innovations compared to its sisters. Totally restored, For the first time, the car had a modern monocoque with an additional front frame. It was the first car manufacturer to use disc brakes on 4 wheels. Under the bonnet roared an in-line 6-cylinder engine, connected to a mechanical 4-speed MOSS gearbox.
The long front bonnet also included the mudguard, which made it necessary to completely overturn the front part in order to gain access to the engine. The headlights perfectly harmonized with the sinuous lines of the machine were keeled. It had a panoramic windscreen with 3 separate wipers. At the rear, the double exhaust pipes were positioned under the license plate. The interior was also very sporty with small, round seats without headrests. The wooden steering wheel was large and the car was started by an aluminum button.
Our rare example dates back to 1961 and is one of the few cars that were produced with a flat floor at the footrest, and for this reason identified as "Flat Floor”. The extraordinarily elegant lines are highlighted by its blue colour combined with wonderful red interiors. The car was originally registered in the USA, then in 2008 it was imported to Italy where it has undergone a major restoration in all its parts, bodywork (originally cream), interior (originally black), all the mechanical parts and various components. The entire restoration has been extensively documented by photographic material. The car is registered in the ASI è register and has been assigned gold number plate no. 43862.
