Up for auction is this sleek 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet finished in Polar Silver Metallic over a grey leather interior. While the Porsche 993 already offers an incredible air-cooled driving experience this example takes it to the next level. Equipped with a desirable 6-speed manual transmission, a few hand-selected performance upgrades and almost $40k in receipts, this Carrera is being offered in ready-to-drive condition by its seller out of Florida with 68k miles showing on the odometer.
The Polar Silver Metallic paint is said to be in beautiful overall condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). The Carfax report does show damage to the rear bumper, however, the seller notes that there are no signs of any issues. A few key exterior details include a newly replaced black cabriolet top along with a set of unique 19” CCW SP100 Forged wheels that wear Bridgestone Potenza tires.
Inside, you will find a well-kept grey leather interior. A few noteworthy interior options include 8-way power operated seats, power windows, automatic speed control and a fully functioning air conditioning system. The seller notes that a tasteful aluminum pedal set has been installed along with an aftermarket Panasonic head unit. All electronics are said to be in working order.
This 993 possesses a freshly built, balanced & blueprinted air-cooled 3.6 L flat-six engine making an estimate 282 HP and 243 lb-ft of torque. The seller notes that the engine was recently tuned and fully serviced by the master technicians at Protomotive in Arkansas. Over $40k in service receipts will show that this Carrera is not only up-to-date on maintenance but has been well-maintained throughout its life. Both the performance and driving experience of this 993 are enhanced due to a few upgrades including an RS clutch and lightweight flywheel, Fabspeed Maxflow exhaust, a Bilstein PSS9 coilover suspension and a desirable Brembo GT-R Big Brake Kit (380mm front / 345mm rear).
The sale will include two keys, books, tools and service records.
