1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet Automatic

Finished in Polar Silver Metallic over a Midnight Blue leather interior, this 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet features an optional Tiptronic transmission along with 17” Turbo-look wheels.  The car was first registered in Florida and spent most of its life in California where it was kept by the fourth owner from 2010 up until now.  Showing approximately 113k miles on the odometer and supported by a collection of maintenance records, this 993 is currently being offered for auction by its seller out of Ohio.

This 993 was ordered in Polar Silver Metallic (L92M) with a Midnight Blue cabriolet top and 17” Turbo-look wheels with colored center crests.  Other equipment includes front fog lights, a rear spoiler brake light, and dual chrome exhaust outlets. Removable clear stone guards are applied over the rear fenders and some minor cosmetic imperfections are depicted in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

Inside, the driver is greeted by a Midnight Blue (FJ) leather interior including power-adjustable seats and an original Porsche CR-210 radio.  Service records show the replacement of the airbag as well as cabriolet top transmissions and cables in 2016.  The seller describes signs of wear commensurate with the car’s age and mileage.

The air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six engine produces up to 272 HP and drives the rear wheels through an optional Tiptronic 4-speed transmission which allows for both automatic and manual gear changes.  Accompanying services records show a major engine-out service and reseal in 2007 at 89k miles as well as replacement of the alternator and drive belts in 2021.  Most recently in 2022, the seller oversaw the replacement of the front control arm bushings, CV axle boots, vacuum units, air temperature sensors, and an oil/filter change. Additional maintenance records can be found in the gallery.

This sale will include a clean title, a set of two keys, and service records.

    @Cward2 Heck yes it is!
    We did not get the owner's manual with the car

  • Cward2 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @switchcars It's typically on a card in the owner's manual packet. For a 993, 2 fob remotes is a plus these days!

  • switchcars (seller) 1 monthago

    @Cward2 I'm not sure where to find that - we do have two keys with fobs, and the radio code card. If you can instruct me where to look for the alarm code I'll check it out

  • Cward2 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Do you have the car alarm code for adding alarm transmitters?
