Repainting a 1996 911

Paint

Vehicle Information: Model: 993; Year: 1996; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 35,000;

I have a 1996 911 in red with a black interior. I bought this car new; it has less than 35,000 miles and has always been garaged. I hand wash it, and wax it 5-6 times a year. Having said this, the paint is terrible. I have a front end that looks like its been in a sand storm which is one problem, but the overall finish is not what I expect of a high end automobile.Im considering painting the car. I read in Nov 02 Tech Q&A that 2002 911s come with a baked clear coat urethane. If I pay for a new paint job, can I expect a more lasting finish? Would a custom shop do a better job than the car is sold with? Are there better techniques available now?Any help would be greatly appreciated.
