This 1995 Porsche 993 Carrera 4 Cabriolet is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission sending power to all four wheels. It came factory optioned with a Polar Silver Metallic finish over Marble Grey and Black supple leather interior, the Power Seat Package, driver’s seat lumbar support, a HiFi sound system, and 17” light alloy wheels. The example was initially purchased on June 23rd, 1994, from Autobahn Europlaza of Ft. Worth, Texas, at a sticker price of over $75k. After spending time in Texas for over 18 years, this 993 was brought to Illinois, where it has remained since 2016. This meticulously maintained example is now being offered for auction by its seller showing approximately 31k miles on the odometer.

The exterior is finished in Polar Silver Metallic with a black cabriolet top and matching boot cover. Equipment includes a speed-activated rear spoiler, basket-handle third brake light, and dual exhaust outlets. The optional 17” light alloy wheels are dressed in Bridgestone Potenza tires. The seller adds that a new convertible top was installed in 2012. The front and rear bumpers are believed to have been paint-corrected under the previous ownership. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The interior is appointed with dual-tone Marble Grey and Black supple leather, featuring the optional Power Seat Package and driver’s seat lumbar support. Additionally, the HiFi Sound System was factory optioned. The seller adds that a Porsche Classic stereo and navigation system have been installed.

The 993 Carrera is powered by an air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six engine that generates up to 272 HP to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. The seller adds that regular maintenance has been carried out, and one oil leak has been noted and attended to under the previous ownership. Service items under the current ownership include the replacement of spark plugs, ignition wires distributor caps and rotors, the installation of new valve cover gaskets, new air, cabin, and fuel filters, an oil and filter change, a brake fluid flush, and chain boxes and timing covers resealed.

This sale will include a clean title.

    @pgj75ssb911 I can tell you per service records that at 28741 miles, the fronts had 8mm tread depth and the rears were at 7mm. That was 2047 mile ago. There is no indication that the tires are in need of immediate replacement.
    Thanks.

  • maminella (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @pgj75ssb911 Sorry, I don't know and the car is in storage a half hour away.

    @ralphnct Hello,
    I will try but it will be later today as I am leaving for work in a half hour.
    Stay tuned.

  • ralphnct 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @maminella Can you take and post separate pictures of the service records so that we can view all of them, front and back where necessary to have a complete view?

  • maminella (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @Ferry and all

    Ferry is correct - the Carerra 4 is a misprint. It is a rear wheel drive model. I'm sorry for the confusion.

  • Ferry (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    To all bidders: this is not a four wheel driven 993 as it is mantioned in the ad! Good luck.

    @maminella It wasnt your error. My comment was directed to artichoke. Good luck with the auction.

  • maminella (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @jefrank If you saw 1985 somewhere, it was a typo. Sorry.

  • maminella (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @perezduque Hello,

    Yes, the AC blew cold. I haven't turned it on since September, but as of then, It worked fine.

  • jefrank (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @ artichoke, there was no 993 in 1985.

  • perezduque (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    Please advise on AC condition and if truly cold. Thanks.

    @artichoke Hello,
    No, the top was replaced in 2012. It works as it is supposed to. Not problematic at all.

    As for the distributor, no issues with it either. The car is as mechanically sound as can be. I wish I could have gotten the car on a lift. You would see no leaks, all hoses are new or relatively new. The car has been well maintained over the years.

  • artichoke (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    Is the top original? Any issues with its operation? Any issues with the distributor, (only problematic on the 1985 993's)? Any other repairs needed?

  • maminella (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    Welcome to my 1995 993. As you'll see, it's been meticulously cared for during it's 28 years. It's a classic and a great way to do top down road trips. It always turns heads and gets nods. I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have. Note that the photos in the accompanying array were taken on two different occasions and two different locations. Many were taken at my storage facility and others were taken at my home.
