Description

Built in March of 1996, this 993 Carrera Cabriolet is a particularly special example that was delivered new to Stuttgart in May of 1996 before being shipped to California, where it lived for almost 20 years. This Carrera has numerous special features, but the most notable is the stunning Forest Green Metallic Paint to Sample- ordered at a time when the PTS program was not commonplace. Under the current ownership, this Carrera was updated with new European bumpers, and the speedometer and odometer have been converted from miles to kilometers, with the odometer showing 125,110 km. Fitted with 17” Cup wheels and Porsche Crest wheel caps, this car is in absolutely stunning condition throughout. The interior is wrapped in Cashmere Supple leather, which perfectly complements the dark green on the exterior. It is also fitted with the rarely seen but very desirable Aluminum dial faces- these add some visual interest to the interior but look much higher quality than adding red or yellow faces to the gauges. These aluminum accents are paired with brushed stainless Carrera sill plates, an aluminum shift knob, and hand brake lever. The driver and passenger both get power-adjustable seats with heating, but the driver’s seat is also fitted with power lumbar adjustment for added comfort on long drives. Powering the 993 Carrera is a 3.6-liter M64 Flat-6 engine that produces 272 horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque and loves to pull hard all the way to the 7,000 rpm redline. 1996 was the first year of the VarioRam system on the 993, which features variable length intake runners and is designed to optimize both low-down torque and high RPM power. The implementation of this system resulted in an increase of 14 horsepower and 10 lb-ft of torque. In this Carrera, the engine has been freshly serviced and is ready to be driven. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual Getrag gearbox with Porsche’s famous floor-hinged pedals. Power is then sent to the rear wheels through an optional limited-slip differential- a crucial option in any 993. With this 993’s multiple trips back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean, it is safe to say that it has quite a story to tell. The original owner clearly knew what they were doing during ordering and produced a one-of-a-kind 993, in a classic specification that appeals to both the driving enthusiast and someone looking for a convertible to cruise around in.
