Iconic 1997 Porsche 911 993 Carrera Cabriolet with 6-Speed Manual Gearbox! Finished in stunning, rare Ocean Blue Metallic, with Blue Convertible Top and contrasted by a Classic Grey Partial Leather Interior. The vehicle was delivered to its first owner in Ohio in the spring of 1997 and has only accumulated 27k miles in the following 25 years with a long period spent in Florida. It’s in beautiful unmodified condition, the paintwork gleams, the convertible top/interior are in excellent condition, and it drives perfectly. All maintenance is up to date with recent extensive servicing including new Bridgestone Tires. It also has many years of historical documentation. At this point it needs nothing except a new caretaker and will be delivered with all major accessories that came with the car when new.

The 993 was introduced in April 1994 for the 1995 model year in North America and represents the final chapter of the legendary Air-Cooled 911 that first saw the road in 1963. The 993 contains 30 years of development to the platform adding many modern features. The 3.6 liter flat six air cooled engine rated at 285 HP with Varioram Induction mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox provides spirted performance. The multilink, coil-over rear suspension assists in making the handling of this rear engine sport car much more predictable than earlier incarnations.
I’ve owned and enjoyed several 993’s over the years going back to when they were new. It’s been a few years since I’ve had the pleasure of driving one so when this beauty came into inventory, I didn’t hesitate to take it for an extended test drive. It was like meeting an old friend that I hadn’t seen for a while, everything fell into place when I got behind the wheel and the memories of drives long past came flooding back. What a joy this time capsule 911 is! It provides much of the original 1960’s 911 experience with the added modern conveniences of, power steering/clutch/brakes and air conditioning that actually works. With the top down on a nice country back road, no modern car can replicate this experience! There is a reason that the 993 has now reached collector status.
