Representing the final generation of the air-cooled 911, this 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet comes finished in Arena Red Metallic over a Classic Grey interior. It pairs a 6-speed manual transmission to its 3.6-liter flat-six and features 8-way power-operated seats, automatic speed control, a Becker Porsche radio & 6-disc CD changer, and more. A lifetime California example, this Carrera Cabriolet is now being offered for auction by its seller with approximately 110k miles showing on the odometer.

This Carrera is finished in the quintessential 993-generation color of Arena Red Metallic contrasted with a tan convertible soft top. It rides on factory 17” Cup 2 wheels with Steel Grey Porsche-crested wheel caps and Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires from 2017. Exterior details include a rear brake light spoiler, a speed-activated decklid spoiler, and black-finished brake calipers with white Porsche lettering. The seller notes minor signs of road wear on the front bumper commensurate with age, and a minor door ding on the passenger’s side. The paint meter readings reportedly show higher on the left front and rear body panels. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin presents Classic Grey partial leather upholstery with 8-way power-operated seats, electric windows and mirrors, and automatic speed control. The equipment also includes a Cassette-radio Becker Porsche CR-210 and a 6-disc CD changer Becker Porsche CDC-3. The seller notes some signs of wear on the steering wheel and driver front bolster, along with a small tear on the back seat. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are confirmed to be in proper working order. The seller states the odometer is accurate, despite a mileage inconsistency noted in the CARFAX report from September 2017 which appears to have been a clerical error.

This 993 is powered by a 3.6-liter flat-six Varioram engine rated at 282 HP. The rear wheels are driven through a 6-speed manual transmission, allowing for acceleration from 0-60 MPH to be achieved in as little as 5 seconds. The seller has identified that hard braking has revealed the necessity for turning or replacing the rotors. The CARFAX report shows a total of 25 service history entries, including the oil & filter changed and brakes checked in October 2023 at 109,529 miles.

This sale will include a clean title and driving gloves. 


The seller would like you to know: “We are selling this 993 on behalf of the owner who recently passed away. He loved this car and babied it since taking ownership in 2006 with 65k miles. He always took it to our local  German Auto repair shop for regular maintenance. All services are on the Carfax with a recent clutch kit installed.  This is a great running 993 that anyone would be happy to own!”
