Now up for auction is this 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 4 Cabriolet finished in Black over a special Flamenco Red interior with factory hardback Sport Seats. Reported to have been purchased new by the seller in 1996, this Canadian-market example has been garage-kept and diligently maintained throughout its entire life. With just over 60k kilometers (37k-miles) currently showing on the odometer, this beautifully appointed 993 is now being offered for auction by its original owner out of British Columbia.
This 993 is finished in Black, and the car is noted to have been garage kept and regularly detailed from new. Some minor signs of road-going wear are present, and the seller reports a small puncture in the Cabriolet top that has been patched. The seller also notes that both doors were refinished early on in the car’s life following some cosmetic vandalization, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This 993 rides on factory 18" Turbo-look wheels featuring "Carrera 4" logo center caps, which are said to have been dressed in new Michelin Pilot Sport tires within the last year.
The special order Flamenco Red interior features highly sought-after factory hardback Sport Seats. Some minor signs of wear are present, and the seller reports all gauges and accessories to remain fully functional including the original CR-210 radio.
Marking the final generation of the air-cooled 911, this 993 is equipped with a 3.6 L flat-six engine that sends 272 HP to all four wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. Routine maintenance is said to have been carried out through an authorized Porsche dealership during the early years of the seller's ownership, with the more recent service performed by a local Porsche specialist. CARFAX shows a transmission fluid change to have been carried out in 2018 at 58,797 km, and the last full service is said to have taken place in the fall of 2019.
This sale will include the original air compressor, spare tire, CD changer, and a clean title. With its rare and desirable factory specifications, this one-owner 993 is not to be overlooked.
