Porsche 911 993 Cabrio Turquoise Metallic Climate 69,900 km VAT statable (1996)
When Porsche introduced the 911 of the 993 generation in 1993, the classic body variations Coupé, Targa and Convertible were again available as usual at Porsche. As with its predecessor (964), this 911 generation also had an extendable rear spoiler, no matter which body version was chosen. As standard, the 993 series was equipped with a six-speed transmission for the first time, and the four-speed automatic transmission was again available as an option. In addition to the engine, the multi-link rear axle had also undergone a thorough overhaul, which now enabled even higher lateral accelerations. With the 993, the 911 had an air-cooled boxer engine for the last time.
The Porsche 911 offered in this auction is a convertible of the 993 series from the year of construction 1996. The first registration of this Zuffenhausen sports car with the FIN WP0CA2991TS340581 took place in July 1996 in the USA, a partially kept checkbook – with which the history of the Porsche can be traced – is available. The seller has it mentioned that he renews the TÜV at the handover, the so-called matching numbers are assumed. 2 vehicle keys are enclosed with the car, a CarFax is also available.
Flat ellipsoid headlights and wider fenders than in the predecessor series ensure a harmonious image of the body of the 993. This 911 Cabriolet in the color "Turquoise Metallic" (color code L25D) presents itself externally except for a few traces of use in a well-preserved condition. According to CarFax, the right and left sides of the car have already been repainted due to a previous damage. Color differences on the entire exterior can not be recognized, in addition, the body of the convertible apparently has no rust traces. Neither cracks nor other damage can be detected in the soft top fabric.
Pirelli tyres from the production year 2014 are mounted on 5-spoke alloy wheels. On the rim edges are partly curb scratches to be found. The current holder of the Porsche states the condition of the brakes as ok, in the area of the chassis there are no defects according to his knowledge.
Grey colour can be seen in the interior of the Porsche Cabriolet: the torn seat cheek is conspicuous on the driver's seat, the front passenger seat is undamaged. The dashboard, door panels, the 4-spoke leather steering wheel and the gear knob show only minor traces of use. In addition to central locking and power steering, the Porsche also has electric seats, power windows, air conditioning, an airbag steering wheel, cruise control and a Pioneer accessory radio. The soft top mechanism of the 911 is flawless in terms of function, a tarpaulin is included.
43,290 miles can be read from the speedometer of the Porsche – this represents the equivalent of a mileage of about 69,700. The complete on-board folder with all documents – including a partially kept checkbook – is available, and there is also a CarFax, which can trace the history of this 993 in the USA. Except for the non-functioning speakers at the back right, all displays, instruments and controls are full of function.
In the 1996 model year, the output of the 3.6-litre boxer engine increased to 285 hp through the use of the Vario-Ram system. Via a 6-speed manual transmission, the power of the 6 cylinders is delivered to the road via the rear axle. Only recently (in July 2022) a final service took place, in the course of this maintenance work the following spare parts were added: front damper, wishbone, rear tie rod handlebar, gas pressure damper all around, wiper blades, air duct for heating. In addition, a wheel alignment was carried out and an air conditioning service was carried out.
According to the low mileage of this 993, the condition of the underbody is also present.
The proportions of a 993 are harmonious all around, but at the same time look very modern: a convertible of the 993 series still has the classic look. As the last air-cooled generation, this series also benefits from a certain nimbus, which makes the 993 something special. Due to the extensive repairs on this 911 Cabriolet and the demonstrably low mileage, the future owner can carelessly take the road – preferably with the hood open – under the wheels.
