This 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Coupe is finished in Arena Red Metallic over a Black partial leather interior and features a 6-speed manual transmission as well as an optional limited-slip differential, Automatic Braking Differential (ABD), and supple leather seats. It was acquired by the seller from its previous owner in 2019 and has since undergone two major services including a top-end engine rebuild. It also features factory 18” Turbo-look wheels, a Fabspeed exhaust system, a new Bilstein suspension, and an upgraded Porsche Classic (PCCM) radio. Showing approximately 98k miles on the odometer and accompanied by extensive service documentation, this 993 is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Georgia.
This Carrera Coupe is finished in Arena Red Metallic, a desirable color most closely associated with the 993 generation. Equipment includes a speed-activated rear spoiler, headlight washers, front fog lights, a rear window wiper, black brake calipers with white Porsche lettering, Fabspeed exhaust tips, and 18” 911 Turbo-look wheels. New Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires were mounted within the last 6 months and the seller notes the front bumper was refinished by a dealership to address a small damage in 2005. The car’s exterior is described to be in good overall condition for its age while showing a few minor scratches and some signs of wear on the hood. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing an accident in 2005.
The Black partial leather interior features optional 8-way power-adjustable seats in supple leather upholstery as well as an Exclusive leather-covered CD storage unit, an electric sunroof, cruise control, and an onboard computer. Standard equipment includes power windows and mirrors, a central locking system, automatic climate control, a locking glovebox, and a quartz clock. An upgraded Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM) head unit has been installed and the seller describes the interior to be in excellent condition apart from some minor wear on the driver’s seat and a small crack in the rear parcel shelf near the speaker grilles. The seller adds that black leather will be included in the sale for the next owner to repair the parcel shelf. All gauges and accessories are said to be working properly including the air conditioning which was serviced in 2023.
An air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 272 HP to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission with an optional limited-slip differential and Automatic Braking Differential (ABD). An upgraded Fabspeed exhaust system is equipped and a new Bilstein suspension was installed by the current owner and lowered to European ride height. Routine maintenance has been kept up to date and two major services were completed while under the seller’s ownership including overhauled distributors and a top-end engine rebuild with new seals, gaskets, spark plugs, wires, valve covers, and more. A large binder of maintenance records is included with the sale.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a window sticker, a toolkit, a spare tire, a clean title, an air pump, service records, sales documents, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “This is a driver’s car for the lady or gentlemen that likes to give it the serious right pedal. The next owner of this car needs to enjoy road rallies, road trips, long Sunday driver events, and passion for the adventure, not the destination. Concourse trailer junkies and static car display enthusiasts need not apply. In 2020 I took the car on a cross-country road trip, it performed absolutely flawlessly, never left me stranded, and never left me with a sight unseen. The car is 27 years old, It has a few paint blemishes and shows very light use, like that baseball glove you should have never gotten rid of, but to the right driver, it will be absolutely everything you'd want in a driver 911. I wish the next custodian the best of luck as you're getting an absolute charm of a 993, that will always leave with a smile on your face.”
