1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Coupe 6-Speed

We are pleased to present this 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Coupe finished in Guards Red over a Cashmere Beige partial leather interior.  Highlighting a 6-Speed manual transmission, Bilstein suspension, and an engine reseal, this 993 is just waiting to be driven and enjoyed by its next owner.  Accompanied by original books and extensive service records, it is now being offered in excellent running condition with 84k miles on the odometer by its seller out of Ohio.

The classic Guards Red finish on this 993 is shown to be in great condition with some minor signs of wear according to the seller.  The seller notes that the bumpers have been professionally refinished by a Porsche specialist.  The car rides on a set of refinished 17" factory Cup Design wheels which come wrapped in brand-new Hankook Ventus V12 tires in the front and an identical set of tires in the rear dated from 2016 with plenty of tread life remaining.

Inside, you will find a beautiful Cashmere Beige leather interior that comes loaded with factory options.  This cabin features the desirable cellular phone center console which is rarely seen in 993 models. Additional factory options include supple leather seats, HiFi sound system, power seat package, comfort package, remote CD changer, and lumbar support. The seller notes that the dashboard seems to have been refinished in the past and shows very well.  The interior remains in nice  condition with all electronics in working order.

Powering this Carrera is an air-cooled 3.6 L flat-six engine rated at 282 HP and 243 lb-ft of torque.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a crisp 6-speed manual transmission making for a claimed 0-60 time of approximately 5.4 seconds.  Records will show that this 993 had a major service in 2013 which included an engine reseal.  Additionally, the seller notes that a full service of over $3k was carried out just this week in preparation for the auction. This 993 is said to be in excellent running condition and comes with extensive records indicating it has been well taken care of throughout its life.

The sale will include 2 keys, books, service records, a clean Carfax report, spare tire, and tool roll.  Don’t miss your chance to own this great driving 993.

    @switchcars Thanks so much for your details and response. Let me ponder this a bit more. I don't like EU height on 993, just a personal opinion. Otherwise, it's attractive, just at a lower cost than you're asking. Also, have to add 5% to any net so this is a consideration as there are many of these around especially on PCA site and beyond. Trying to compare values too and seeing that an 87-89 Targa or Coupe, while generally higher cost, may be a more sound investment. Too many considerations to take into account. Thanks again.

    @afleffler The A/C works great! I took it on a road trip recently, 10 hrs, heavy traffic, blistering heat. I was cool as a cucumber.
    I think the clutch has been replaced but I don't know when. We have all service records since new so we'd have to pore through those to find out. The last 5-ish years of service records are all visible in the gallery here on pcarmarket and it may be in there - take a look!
    We have not performed a leakdown and compression test. A top-end rebuild was performed in 2013 and about 20k miles ago, so that usually takes care of any odd leakdown or compression numbers. We did not see a reason to do a test with the recent rebuild.
    The Carfax report is available to view in the gallery here on pcarmarket.
    Yes the car has been lowered, it has H&R lowering springs if memory serves me correctly. The factory springs could be put back on if you wanted it at stock ride height, but it looks SO Much better this way! (The receipt for the lowering springs is also available in the gallery here on pcarmaket, I think it was done at the same time as the engine rebuild).

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Oh private seller.,

    A few questions before proceeding...
    number one his car still available?
    Two how well does the air-conditioning work? Three has the clutch or pressure plates been replaced recently if so at how many miles?
    Four has a leak down or a compression test been performed on the car that you can provide results?
    five can you furnish a recent Carfax report ?
    Additional question – has the car been lowered to a European spec? If so can it be raise back to USA height level

    Many thanks Al Leffler

    Thank you all for the bids and comments so far. This is a mechanically fresh and fantastic driver example. We took a driving video and we'll TRY to have it edited and uploaded before the auction ends - the long and short - it drives fantastic, and the Motor Sound Package enhances the engine note nicely. Cosmetically the car isn't perfect- the interior is very clean with just a couple of picks: the center console coin tray could stand to be replaced, and the dash has a little bit of lifting visible in the photos. The exterior clearcoat is "popping" - it has micro pitting on the top sides of some of the panels. It is not visible from a Covid-safe distance, but we took some close-up photos that are in the gallery for people to check out. The previous owner only had the front and rear bumpers refinished, so it's possible that the original owner had paintwork done or that it was done prior to original delivery, as that happens more often than people realize. All that said, mechanically this car is amazing, it is crisp, tight, fresh, and if you want a car to put some miles on and not worry about a couple of rock chips, this is it!

    @MiataIsAlwysTheAnswr Because it's really rare and not silver, black or some version of gray! This care is the first I've ever seen with that cell-phone center console option - looks kind of odd to me after seeing so many with the "standard" 911 shifter look.

  • MiataIsAlwysTheAnswr (registered bidder) 4 months, 1 weekago

    Holy service records batman! There's something about Guards Red on a 993 that is more appealing than on other generations. Good luck with the auction!
