Purchased new by its owner from Holbert’s Porsche of Warrington, Pennsylvania, this 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet sports a rare Wimbledon Green Metallic finish as well as a 6-speed manual transmission and optional limited-slip differential. The car was also ordered with optional supple leather seats, 17” Cup Design rims, Porsche crested headrests, and exclusive Light Rootwood shifter and brake handles. Maintained by the same caretaker from new, this incredibly unique 993 shows approximately 45k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction by its original owner out of Pennsylvania.
This Carrera comes finished in Wimbledon Green Metallic, a coveted and rarely seen color named for the world-famous tennis championship Porsche had sponsored over the years. It comes equipped with a black convertible soft top as well as factory optioned 17” Cup Design wheels with colored center crests and a custom chrome finish. The Michelin tires show 9/32” of tread and the seller reports normal signs of exterior wear including some small chips, scratches, and patina on the wheels.
The Cashmere Beige and Black interior features an optional Light Rootwood shifter and brake handle, a leather-trimmed kneebar, and supple leather seats with Porsche crested headrests. Other factory equipment includes an optional 8-way electrical driver’s seat, cruise control, and the HiFi Sound Package with the original Porsche CDR-210 radio remaining in place. An integrated radar detector system was also professionally installed when new and some wear is noted on the driver’s seat and rear center console.
As much as 282 HP is derived from an air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six engine. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission featuring an optional limited-slip differential and Automatic Braking Differential (ABD). Upgraded mufflers were installed upon delivery and the car is said to have been dealer-maintained from new. An oil seal was replaced about 6 years ago to address a small leak the battery was replaced more recently by a local independent shop.
This sale will include the original window sticker, owner’s manuals, and a clean title.
