The 993 series, as most know, was the last of the air cooled 911's. The cars produced and sold as 1996 thru 1998 models were virtually identical in weight, engine size and horsepower, and in factory options offered.
This all stock 1996 Carrera 993 Cabriolet reads a little over 30K miles on the odometer. The current owner put the last 7,000 miles on it over the last five years. It is in collector condition, having been pampered throughout its 30,000 miles. It is finished in Polar Silver over Midnight Blue leather and a new OEM blue canvas top was installed at 13,624 miles. The top was replaced by a previous owner in 2006 (the clear rear window had creased). There are no flaws in the interior. There is one small rock chip on the driver's side of the front bumper.
The current owner reports that the passenger side rear speaker rattles slightly with heavy bass notes and the driver's side rock guard had a small wrinkle at the edge which has peeled off. The rock guards remain on the car.
Equipment includes 18-inch turbo twist wheels, the tires are Michelin Pilot Sport 225/40ZR18 front, 285/30XR18 rear, factory CD player, AM/FM Blaupunkt, factory anti-theft, tool set, factory cassette player, dual power leather seats, motorized convertible top, cruise control, cocoa mats, electronic trip/status computer (mpg, air temp, miles to empty, total miles, etc) , toneau cover, factory AC, and quarter panel rock guards and nose guard. It has Porsche's TipTronic transmission. This beautiful 993 comes with 2 key sets, the original radio code card, tookit, spare tire, compressor, and car cover.
This low mileage 993 has had several previous owners, all in Florida and all of whom were collectors. One owner with over $3.5 million in collector quality cars, sold it and bought it back again.
The car comes with a clean history and Porsche COA. It had a 30k mile service at 13,624 miles in 2006. Minor servicing occurred at regular intervals including a recent oil change at 28,421 miles. The mechanical odometer broke at 24,038 and was replaced professionally approximately one week later.
