Even before I started working for Porsche Ive always dreamed of owning a 993 4S in arctic silver with a factory aerokit. Theres just something about how well the design combines performance with finesse that speaks to me like nothing else

So often when manufacturers find a formula that works beautifully, the temptation with the second generation is to mess with it, because you can’t just say ‘well folks, that’s already the best we can do.’ Cars have to appear to be new and, on paper at least, better. Which is why they become more powerful and therefore heavier and therefore less fun to drive. Not the MX-5: Mazda dieticians have kept an unwavering eye on the car’s waistline over what is now four distinct generations and if you take a new one and a 30year old and compare their specifications, they are staggeringly similar in all but outputs.
#MercedesMonday : This 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster can be yours at #RMParis next week.
Wearing a well-maintained older restoration, and retaining its original engine, body, and steering box, this beautiful Roadster is a particularly lovely example that has enjoyed 23 years with its current owner in Portugal.
Though the early history of the car is currently unknown, it is likely it was delivered new to the U.S., as the car is fitted with American-style headlamp lenses, and was in American ownership during the '80s.
Finished in its original color scheme of ivory paint over red leather, this #Mercedes would make an ideal purchase for open motoring enthusiasts or Mercedes-Benz collectors on the hunt for a well-sorted early roadster.
