I intend this to serve as a companion piece to yesterday’s 993 post. It isn’t really a comparison since I don’t think that would make a lot of sense. Yesterday’s 993 looked to be entirely original and was very low mileage while this one is modified and higher mileage. But given that even with its low miles I viewed yesterday’s car as one that you should probably buy with the intention of driving it anyway, then looking at an option that much more logically fits into the driver category seemed worthwhile. I also happened to come across this one and thought the total package looked pretty good. Here we have a Midnight Blue 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in California, with 97,982 miles on it. As you can see the miles are definitely a good bit higher with this 993, but if its maintenance has been kept up with then there is little reason to think that it won’t have plenty of miles left in it.

Though I’ve called this a modified 993 its modifications aren’t of the significant variety. There has been little done to alter the appearance other than the Turbo Twist wheels and the S bumper. I don’t consider this a bad thing since the 993 is such a beautiful car right out of the box. Though I would be curious if the original Cup wheels are still available with the car (I suspect they aren’t or that would be mentioned). The rest of the modifications are principally aimed at improving performance with those aims squarely focused on handling. A “performance chip” and lightened flywheel are the only changes that should affect power and its delivery. Again, that’s not really a negative. Altogether this 993 looks very good, it has some nice modifications, and the current owner sounds pretty well versed on its basic state. We don’t hear much about available documentation, though we are provided we some recent service history.
As a companion to yesterday’s post part of the point here is price. How much less expensive will/should be this 911? Bidding sits currently at $30,100 so at first glance the answer is “a lot less expensive.” But the reserve is unmet and there are a few days remaining so that should certainly come up. I said that yesterday’s 993 – regardless of its asking price – really didn’t make a lot of sense once we began to move too far about $60K. What about this one? Mid $40Ks perhaps?
