Yellow 993 C2

The same owner of last week’s beautiful 968 CS (or rather, previous owner, as the car appears to have sold) is also the owner of this equally gorgeous 993. I guess that solves his dilemma: just get both.

His driving impressions are worth reading; so is his documentary on the enviable journey that led him to the C2 (one that involved cross-shopping the likes of an F355 and a 996 GT3, to give you an idea).

Perhaps the color (and the weighty badge) notwithstanding, this is not, upon first appearances, an especially extraordinary car. It’s not a C2S. It’s not a widebody. It doesn’t have a giant rear wing. If anything, the previously mentioned 968 CS is more exceptional. And yet, precisely for those very reasons, it couldn’t be more perfect. There’s something to be said about simplicity – the joy of driving and beholding a car pared down to its very sports car essence – and we feel that the 993 C2 embodies that spirit wonderfully.
