Purists often refer to the Porsche 993 as the last “real” 911, as the era of air-cooled boxer engines at Porsche ended with this series. But the successor to the 964 was also able to score in other qualities when it was introduced in 1993: both technically and visually subjected to extensive revisions, the 911 appeared much more modern and dynamic from then on, without losing the essence of its ancestors, and thus set new ones Standards in the sports car segment. The completely redesigned aluminum LSA chassis combined lightweight construction, stability and agility and helped the 993 to achieve more driving dynamics with improved suspension comfort. Visually, too, the Zuffenhausen-based company succeeded in creating a symbiosis of tradition and modernity with the 993: unmistakably recognizable as the 911, the classic design of the traditional series has been reinterpreted. From then on, the bumpers were harmoniously integrated into the body, which, with its wider and flatter fenders, ensured a self-confident, dynamic appearance. The range of engines ranged from 272 hp or 286 hp in the Carrera and Targa models to 408 hp in the turbo model.

The vehicle in detail

In this auction there is now the opportunity to bid on a Porsche 911 Cabriolet from the 993 series. The car with VIN WP0CA2998VS341570 from 1997 was first registered in the United States in July 1997. The history of the car can be partially traced through invoices, TÜV reports and checkbook entries. According to the seller, the vehicle has matching numbers. An appraisal from November 2018 worth €95,000 is available. There is currently no more recent report. The Porsche has a valid general inspection until June 2023. The Porsche comes with a key.

"Firnweiß" is what Porsche calls the exterior color of the 993 Cabriolet. The seller believes that the bodywork has undergone a complete repaint, which shows that the paintwork of the Porsche is in very neat condition. According to the seller, the paint has two minor defects, which can be seen in the gallery. The seller states that the car in his possession is accident-free. After the import from the USA, the Porsche was converted to the German version, which means the conversion of the bumpers, the removal of the third brake light and the adaptation of the chassis to the German standard.

The original 17-inch Porsche aluminum rims appear in a well-kept appearance, and the seller also describes the condition of the tires as good. Only one of the Porsche crests on one of the rims is missing. According to the seller, the brakes are also in good condition.

The interior of the 993, including the lavish leather appointments, is kept entirely in grey. The interior shows some light wear and tear from the past few years, concentrated on the manual transmission shift knob and the driver's seat. Hardly any signs of wear are visible on the temperature controls and controls. A retrofit radio from Alpine is installed in the dashboard of the Porsche. Other features include central locking, power steering, power windows, air conditioning, ABS and cruise control.

The instrument panel in the 993 is also in the classic Porsche style, with five round instruments displaying the relevant information. Based on the speedometer, which is located to the right of the centrally mounted rev counter, a mileage of 52,208 mi can be read. The original MPH speedometer was exchanged for a German KM/H speedometer when converting to the EU standard. Despite the KM speedometer, the counter is still running on miles, so the car has run almost 84,042 km. This mileage can be traced through the enclosed invoices, TÜV reports and checkbook entries. According to the information, the instruments work flawlessly.

At the rear of the 993 Coupé is the air-cooled six-cylinder boxer engine, which produces a maximum rated output of 286 hp with a displacement of 3600 cm³. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. According to the seller, the Porsche only recently received its last service. Most recently, the technology was revised in the car. Upcoming repairs are not known according to the information.

The seller states that the underbody is in good condition. Here you have the chance to bid on a Porsche convertible from the coveted 993 series.
