Now up for auction is this 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera Cabriolet finished in Black over a Black premium leather interior. Powered by a 3.6 L flat-six engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, this 993 represents the final iteration the air-cooled Porsche 911. Currently registered in Canada, this U.S. spec 1996 example resides with its seller in Arizona while displaying just over 40k documented miles on the odometer. Remaining in excellent highly original condition and accompanied by a clean Carfax report, this Cabriolet is just waiting to be enjoyed by its next caretaker.
The Black finish on the 993 is reported to be in very nice condition with clear paint protective film applied over the front bumper. Some older paint protective film was also recently removed from the hood and front fenders. The seller indicates that the front hood has been refinished for cosmetic purposes, although the rest of the paint on the car is noted to be original (detailed images and paint meter readings are provided in the photo gallery). A brand new Cabriolet top was recently installed and the factory Cup 2 wheels were dressed in new BF Goodrich tires within the last 3k miles.

Brand-new Lloyds floormats are installed along with an aftermarket head unit, however, the original Porsche radio will also be included with the sale. The cabin is stated to be in great shape with all gauges and accessories working properly, and the seller notes that the ECU had been sent out for an immobilizer delete under previous ownership.
An air cooled 3.6 L flat-six engine sends 282 HP to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. This 993 remains mechanically stock with some noteworthy service items carried out over the past 3 years including:
Service records are available form the most recent ownership and this 993 is reported to be in excellent driving condition.
