1996 Porsche (911) 993 Carrera in Polar Silver for sale!

Presented here is my 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera (model 993) in polar silver with black leather interior. This is a Japanese specification left hand drive Carrera Tiptronic no-sunroof car with a rear window wiper. Japanese specification oddly also deletes cruise control. 17″ wheels came standard. The car has a full service history. I have dealer records from Japan and I have kept detailed records for its time here in the UAE.

I have steadily improved the car over the past 20 months to achieve a very good driver quality 993 that is in great mechanical and cosmetic condition for the enthusiast who enjoys driving as much as the aesthetics of this beautiful car.

A full health report and work order is available on request.

As an avid collector myself I can assist with pre-purchase and export arrangement to Europe or the USA.

Price: EUR 40,000 EUR 38,000

I enjoy the sensations of driving. Its not only about speed. Its how you get information from the steering and through the seat. That is why I pay attention to suspension and steering and have done my best to achieve a comfortable, precise experience that rewards the advanced driver yet will tolerate minor errors for the rest of us.

The suspension is tuned and damped for fast mountain road driving with roll and diving well controlled. There is delightful steering wheel feedback. To achieve this result I installed:

  • New Bilstein PSS10 fully adjustable suspension (height, rebound, camber). Ride height is currently set to “euro” spec but can be easily adjusted higher
  • New Powerflex sport polyurethane bushings on the front suspension

Michelin Pilot Sport tires in the rear and Pilot Sport 4+ in the front were fitted in late 2019 and pair very well with the standard 17″ Cup 2 wheels on the car.

To enhance driving sensation I installed an international specification Continental Bluetooth Radio which  works on all FM radio frequencies world wide, paired with powerful new Cerwin Vega speakers front and rear. As gorgeous as the engine sounds, sometimes the drive needs a soundtrack.

The underbody aerodynamic trim is all present and correct on my car. This is often overlooked but it is important on the 993 for engine and transmission cooling airflow.

The most recent (November 2020) service was performed by JZM Gulf in Abu Dhabi, UAE’s regional expert in air-cooled 911 restoration and maintenance. A full health report and work order is available on request.

Some background about the 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera: In 1996 Porsche introduced VarioRam, a system which changes the tube runner length inside the intake manifold based on the engine load and rpm to improve the torque curve.  Power from the 3.6l flat six air-cooled M64/21 normally aspirated engine is 285 hp at 6,100 rpm, and torque is 251 lb-ft at 5,250 rpm.

This engine is paired with a 4 speed Tiptronic gearbox and gearchanges can be done via the gear lever, switches on the steering wheel or left in automatic and the adaptive transmission takes care of shifts for you. Gearing is long and  2nd and 3rd are well suited to mountain switchbacks.

1996 is also the first year Porsche equipped the 993 with modern Onboard Diagnostics (ODB) for engine, transmission, Anti Brake-lock System (ABS) and airbags.

The Porsche 993 is the last of the air-cooled Porsche 911s. The 993 was also designed with many modern features that set it apart from earlier air-cooled 911s. It has multilink rear suspension that tames the snap oversteer, the same as in all subsequent Porsche 911 cars. Air conditioning and engine oil cooling were designed to work in warm climates. This is perhaps the first 911 that, from the factory, is designed to cope with Dubai summers.

Needless to say, this is not my only car (and not my only 911). Its driven mostly on beautiful mountain passes in the Al Hajar mountain range where the roads are excellent. I have delighted in the ownership experience.
