Highlights

The Porsche convertible from the last air-cooled model series 993 to be auctioned in this auction also provides plenty of breath of fresh air. The story: The convertible was first registered in July 1995 in Shreveport in the US state of Louisiana. In the USA, the convertible enjoyed a total of 2 owners over a period of 23 years before it was brought to Germany in September 2018 and its third owner came to Hesse, more precisely Bad Vilbel. As the last stop for the time being, the convertible fulfilled the dream of the fourth and last owner in Cologne. A complete Carfax is available for the 993, which is supplemented by a checkbook kept in Germany, a history of the Porsche is thus given both from the USA and from Germany. The main inspection will run until July 2023, the 993 will be handed over with 2 vehicle keys. Also worth mentioning is the appraisal report drawn up at the end of 2020, which attests the Porsche a market value of € 65,000; the replacement value, according to the appraisal, is € 75,000. The Porsche 993 also has matching numbers.

The vehicle in detail

The Porsche shows itself without accidents in its timelessly beautiful look, the color dark green metallic was rarely ordered, there were no defects in the paintwork, in some places the body was repainted, but this cannot be seen immediately because the color gradient is even . A fully functional fully automatic black hood can be opened within seconds, the corresponding original tarpaulin is available. The PVC rear window, which is in a crack-free condition, provides a view to the rear. The front and rear bumpers appear to be undamaged and are therefore in a clean state of preservation. The current owner also notes that a recently applied nano-sealing was done for a protective paint surface and the value obtained with it for the Porsche 993.

The current owner got new summer tires for the convertible as well as brand new winter tires. The rims on the vehicle are CUP II aluminum rims in good condition, the brakes are not objectionable because the Porsche has been given new brake discs and pads. Also in the area of the original factory and therefore modification-free chassis, no defects can be found.

The interior design of the 993 has hardly changed compared to its predecessor, the 964, so it looks very familiar. The interior of this Porsche 993 Cabrio has original light gray full leather seats, parts of the door panels and the dashboard are black, the four-spoke sports steering wheel and the gear knob are in a non-worn condition. Apparently no damage can be found in the entire interior. The equipment includes: power steering, central locking, electric windows, air conditioning, ABS, cruise control, a contemporary Becker Cascade radio with navigation system, tarpaulin and a renewed windscreen with a green wedge.

White dials, which were then subject to a surcharge, adorn the typical Porsche watch armada, the speedometer shows a reading of 103,899 kilometers. The kilometers are to be regarded as credible, as the total mileage of the Porsche can be verified without any problems through a complete Carfax documentation and a service booklet kept in Germany. There is also a folder with various previous invoices and receipts. All the instruments in the interior of the Porsche function perfectly.

Dating from 1995, this 993 convertible still has the first engine generation with 272 hp, this generation still got by without a variable intake manifold (Vario-Ram). An original and unmodified 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine in the rear ensures sheer driving pleasure, which is underlined again in combination with the 6-speed manual transmission. The last inspection was carried out at Kremer Racing in Cologne in November 2021; pending repairs cannot be carried out due to the faultless condition of the engine and transmission.

You look in vain for rust on the underbody, the condition apparently corresponds to the age and the low mileage of the 993 Cabrio. In summary, it can be said that this Porsche convertible from the 993 series leaves nothing to be desired, now only a few rays of sunshine are missing.

There are also some documents available for the vehicle, including an appraisal and a Carfax as well as a checkbook that backs up the mileage
