1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet 6-Speed

We are pleased to present this 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet 6-speed presented in black over a black and Cashmere leather interior.  As the final generation of the air-cooled Porsche 911, the 993 has become increasingly sought after by both collectors and driving enthusiasts alike.  Purchased by the seller from its second owner in 2004, this 1996 Cabriolet highlights some tasteful modifications as well as a 3.6 L engine rebuilt by Pat Williams Racings.  Showing 57k miles on the odometer and accompanied by over $30k worth of service records and invoices, this Carrera Cabriolet offers a tremendous value for any avid Porsche enthusiast.

The black paint is said to be in excellent condition and the seller notes that the front bumper was professionally refinished for cosmetic purposes in 2010 along with the rear bumper cover and rear quarter panels.  New body seals have been installed and clear paint protective film has also been applied over the front bumper, hood and fenders; detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.  The low beams have been converted to HID and the 3rd brake light has also been converted to LED to improve visibility. This Cabriolet rides on factory 5-spoke alloy wheels which come dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport tires dated 2014 in the front and 2017 in the rear with plenty of tread life remaining.

Inside, this 993 features a two-tone black and Cashmere leather interior which is said to be in great shape.  The cabriolet top is also reported to have been completely replaced in 2007.  Modifications include a retrofitted 996 Porsche Techquipment shift knob, Porsche Techquipment emergency brake, 3-spoke 996 steering wheel and an OEM leather center console.  This 993 retains its Becker CDR-210 radio, and the seller confirms all gauges, electrical components and accessories to be fully functional.

This 993 carries an air cooled 3.6L flat-six engine which had a rebuild at 53k miles by Pat Williams Racing in 2013.  The rear wheels are driven through a number’s matching 6-speed manual transmission providing for a 0-60 time of approximately 5 seconds.  The engine rebuild also included new dual distributor belts and a new Sachs clutch.  Following the completion of the work, this 993 was dyno tested at 261 WHP or approximately 305 HP at the engine.  The engine is said to run extremely well and is predicted to run strong for many years to come.  Performance modifications include solid RS engine mounts, an upgraded Porsche air box and a Fister Stage 2 muffler which has been ceramic coated in black and paired with black oval exhaust tips.  The seller notes that this 993's performance is greatly enhanced when compared to other examples on the road.  The alternator has been rebuilt, a new cooling fan has been installed, and the seller confirms this Carrera to be up to date on all due oil and filter changes.

The sale of this 993 will include a set of two keys, the original books and tools, a like-new spare tire, like-new air compressor and over $30k worth of service records and invoices dating back to 2000.  Do not miss your chance to own this nicely upgraded 993 Cabriolet 6-speed.

    @LARacer You are welcome!

  • LARacer (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Thank you very much for the honest clarification.

  • Holytin (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Holytin „few“

  • Holytin (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @LARacer Fenders and the hood where the film has been applied are still painted „factory“. Before the film was applied the body shop did some touch-up to the original paint so, yes, your observation is correct. But, there are very areas where this can be seen, and the OEM paint is protected. Please keep in mind this paint job is 25 years old and original, and still shows very well!

  • LARacer (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    It looks in the pictures like the clear film was applied over paint that has rock chips in it. Is this just an optical illusion?

    @Sxmyachtshop Found the Video for the Dyno over at PWR - PCAR should have posted this soon. 261 whp - adding 15% transfer efficiency loss that‘s around 307 engine hp. Roughly...

    @Holytin thanks!

  • Holytin (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Mtbguy I can confirm a clean Carfax but do not have a current, printed version I'm able to share. I had a Carfax done back in 2004 - this one I still have, and it is clear. Before I decided to list the 993 with PCAR the Carfax for this 993 was pulled several times and came back clean. I can try to pull one for you, and email it to you, but I don't know if I can get this done in a timely fashion before this auction ends. PCAR, I believe, ran one, too. However, I can assure you there is no hidden accident damage. The previous owner never had an accident neither did I. This 993 is 100% accident free, and the only mishap ever was this cracked bumper cover, which I don't believe constitutes an accident per se. Please let me know how do you to proceed and I'll see what I can do. Best, Andre'

    @me Sorry, I did not take any pictures but I'll be glad to describe the damage. The bumper cover was dented/cracked towards the center including a crack in the center reflector. The damage was rather minor; therefore no pictures. Same applies to the front bumper and the rear quarter panels - just some pitting and rock chips that I wanted to have taken care off. The exterior color "Black" is just an awesome color, especially on a 911, but will show any imperfections...

    Beautiful 911!
    Can you confirm clean Carfax? I love all the work done to the car, but have been burned on resale before a few times, so ask more questions now. Thanks!

    Hello, and welcome to our auction. A few words concerning this 993 Convertible - this is a very honest, well preserved and unmolested 993. Mostly original and still factory - she runs fantastic, sounds great (these Fister Stage II's did the trick), and performs exceptionally well thanks to Pat Williams (Pat Williams Racing) who is responsible for the engine overhaul (top and bottom) back in 2013.

    Concerning the engine - a bent valve due to valve guide failure was the main reason for the rebuild. Pat used Porsche factory parts and years of experience (Randy Probst's crew chief!) to rebuild this engine including a new Sachs clutch and a rebuild dual distributor! Total mileage since the rebuild 4,000 miles. Also eliminated the dreaded SAI issue, which could become a huge issue should you be living in CA. And, as a added benefit, the engine is rated at approximately 305 hp. That's RS territory!

    However, should you have any questions concerning this 993 please don't hesitate to ask any questions! Happy bidding!!
