Iconic 1997 Porsche 911 993 Carrera Cabriolet with 6-Speed Manual Gearbox! Finished in Classic Arctic Silver Metallic, Contrasted by a Black Convertible Top and Classic Grey Full Supple Leather Interior. The vehicle was delivered to its first owner in California in the summer of 1997 and has only accumulated 24k miles in the following 25 years. It’s in beautiful condition, the paintwork gleams, the convertible top is like new, the interior is in excellent condition and it drives perfectly. All maintenance is up to date with recent extensive servicing including newer Michelin Tires and Porsche Battery. The vehicle is also fitted with Bilstein HD Struts and has been lowered approximately 27mm to ROW (rest of the world) ride height, this has vastly improved the handling characteristics of the car compared to the original Boge/USA struts the car was originally delivered with. At this point it needs nothing except a new caretaker and will be delivered with all the accessories that came with the car when new.

The 993 introduced in mid 1994 for the 1995 model year in North America 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 engined 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, sunny day on a nice country back road, no modern car can replicate this experience! There is a reason that these have now reached collector status.
