Now up for auction is this 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera Coupe finished in Black over a Cashmere Beige and Black partial leather interior. Increasingly sought after by enthusiasts and collectors, the 993 represents the final iteration of the air-cooled 911. This 1997 example features a 6-speed manual transmission, an optional limited-slip and Automatic Braking Differential (ABD), 17” wheels with colored center crests, and a full-power driver’s seat. This 993 has been enjoyed by four private owners throughout its life, with the second owner maintaining it for over 12 years and the last two owners being prominent collectors. Remaining very well preserved and accompanied by the original books, window sticker, and a substantial collection of maintenance records, this Carrera has been recently serviced and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Massachusetts while showing just over 17k miles on the odometer.

Standard features include automatic climate control, remote entry with alarm, power/heated side mirrors, cruise control, and an electric sliding sunroof. The seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
This Carrera is equipped with an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six Varioram engine rated at 282 HP. The rear wheels are driven through a 6-speed manual transmission with an optional limited-slip and Automatic Braking Differential (ABD) for improved traction. Maintenance records are said to have been kept throughout the lifetime of the vehicle with service carried out in the last 18 months including complete fluid and filter changes, new tires, brakes, and spark plugs.
