1997 Porsche 911 Turbo

A coupe days ago for our feature of this 993 Turbo I spoke about the particular desirability of a black car and specifically why I like them. But what if you want to maintain the darker palette without going the full dark of black? Then this 911 might be more what you’d want. This is an Ocean Blue Metallic 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in California, with tan interior (Cashmere Beige I’d guess) and 77,267 miles on it. Seen out of direct light that Ocean Blue exterior almost will look black, but step closer or add a little sun and that metallic blue paint shines through beautifully to provide just enough differentiation. The black wheels add to the darkly aggressive look. If you don’t like them, have no fear the original wheels come with the car.

For sale! Classic Car Fusion is excited to offer this beautiful 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe 993 in spectacular Ocean Bleu Metallic (3AZ94). With just over 77k on the odometer this well maintained and garage kept Turbo is the last generation of the iconic air cooled Turbo charged 3.6L flat 6s from Stuttgart. This example is all original except for the tasty new AvantGarde wheels, although the original wheels are included in the sale.

The exterior on this 911 is very nice; it isn’t perfect, but it looks in pretty good shape. However, I want to focus on the interior. Like the black 993TT the owner of this Turbo also chose a more elegant route for the interior with a selection of Rootwood accents. Unlike the black one this one has not restricted his choices to the shift knob and parking brake handle, but rather gone with the full dash and steering wheel as well! While I wouldn’t say that I’m normally a wood trim type of guy in my 911 there is something about taking the effect the full way that’s almost more appealing than the more subtle touches of just small items here and there. This interior reminds me more of a Jaguar, or even a Bentley, than a Porsche and I can see the appeal of that. Is it what I’d choose? Probably not, but I do appreciate the total package more than the individual pieces. It also looks in really nice shape. That helps.

I spoke the other day of contrast – an aggressive exterior on the outside with a refined elegant interior on the inside. This 993TT takes those cues to their logical conclusion. This color along with the black wheels really provide a menacing appearance, but once you step inside it’s light, open feeling, and full of details. I can see what they were going for here and it’s been carried out well.

  1. What a gorgeous car, but I can’t get down with that interior. Wood in a 911 always looks too incongruous.
