Up for auction is this well-presented 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet finished in Polar Silver Metallic over a Midnight Blue partial leather interior with supple leather seats. Featuring a 6-speed manual transmission, this 1997 example has recently been treated to a high-quality professional respray, an updated Porsche Classic radio, and a 30k mile comprehensive service. It is now being offered for auction by its owner in Florida while showing just over 32k miles on the odometer, accompanied by service records, the original window sticker, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
Within the last year, this 993 is said to have been completely refinished in its original color of Polar Silver Metallic, following the removal of old stone guards that damaged some of the original paint. The respray is said to have been carried out by a highly reputable specialist using premium Glasurit paint, and all new rubber seals and moldings were installed during this time as well. A Ceramic Pro coating has since applied over the full exterior along with new stone guards for the rear fenders. A new German-made blue cabriolet with sound insulation has been fitted and the windshield was replaced with a new OEM part following a minor road-going chip. This 993 is factory optioned with stainless steel exhaust pipes and 17" Cup 2 wheels that come dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport tires bearing approximately 6k miles of use. Detailed images and paint meter readings are shown in the photo gallery.
The Blue leather interior is noted to be in excellent condition with only very minor wear depicted on the driver’s seat. The air conditioning system has been completely overhauled and recharged under the current ownership. A genuine Porsche Classic satellite radio has been installed and the original radio will also accompany the sale. Factory options listed on the original window sticker include supple leather front and rear seats, heated and power operated front seats, metal door sills with insignias, left seat lumbar support, and a 6-disc CD changer. All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional.
Representing the final generation of the air-cooled 911, this 993 Carrera is equipped with a 3.6 L flat-six Varioram engine rated at 282 HP. A 6-speed manual transmission drives the rear wheels, and this Cabriolet underwent a recent 30k mile comprehensive service by a local Porsche specialist which included the replacements of fluids, filters, spark plugs, and new front Bilstein shock absorbers. All other routine maintenance is said to be up to date and this 993 is reported to be in top running order.
This sale will include service records, the original window sticker, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a cabriolet top boot, and a clean title. This meticulously maintained, low-mileage 993 is sure to satisfy any discerning air-cooled enthusiast, do not let this opportunity pass you by.
