We are pleased to present this 1997 993 Carrera Coupe 6-speed finished in classic Guards Red over a black leather interior. Representing the final generation of the air-cooled 911, the 993 remains one of the most historically significant and desirable Porsche models to date. Having been purchased by the current owner in 2018 with the original intent of transforming it into an RSR clone, this 993 is outfitted with some exciting performance upgrades and custom modifications making it a truly unique build. Now showing approximately 74k miles on the odometer, this stunning 993 Carrera is being offered for auction in great overall condition by its seller in Arizona.
The Guards Red finish on this Carrera is showing to be in excellent condition with a professional respray of the drivers side fender. Detailed images highlighting the condition of the paint and body are provided in the photo gallery.
Exterior features include a custom ducktail rear decklid, Turbo-style front bumper and genuine 17” Cup Wheels which come wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RS670 Sport tires.
This 993 is appointed in a black leather interior featuring a sunroof, power adjustable seats, and a factory rear seat delete. Modifications consist of RS style door panels, red floor mats, a color-matched roll bar and an updated Pioneer stereo with USB and Bluetooth connectivity. This interior is said to remain in great condition with the only noteworthy flaw being a few missing or cracked hinge pieces. All gauges, electrical components and accessories are reported to be fully functional. Showing to be nicely presented inside and out, this Carrera is waiting to be enjoyed by its next owner.
This 993 carries an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six engine that is rated at approximately 282 HP. Power is sent to the rear wheels by way of a crisp 6-speed manual transmission making for a pure and connected driving experience. A short-shifter kit speeds up gear changes while top-of-the line Bilstein coilovers liven up the ride and enhance this car’s aggressive stance. Having added only 300 miles since purchasing the car back in December of 2018, an oil change was performed in September of 2019 by Beck’s European in Scottsdale, AZ. The seller notes that the vehicle's engine is in exceptional running condition with only a sporadic and very minor oil leak.
The sale of this unique 993 Carrera will include original books and documentation, tool kit, one key, service records, and a clean Carfax report. The car is accompanied by a clear Montana title. Offering enhanced styling coupled with a classic air-cooled feel, this 993 is not to be overlooked.
