I have a funny relationship with convertibles. I own one and love it, but I’m generally not a huge fan of these cars (full disclosure: I long ago tossed the soft top in my car and added a hard top. It hasn’t been removed in years). There are times though where a drive simply isn’t complete without having the top down. Sure, you can have fun on any decent road in any good car, but once you’ve experienced top-down motoring you also begin to understand that there is a heightened level of experience when driving a convertible that cannot be replicated in a car with a roof. Your senses are enlivened and the entire experience is better. All of this is to say, while I may never seek out a convertible again, I get it.
Which brings us to the car featured here, a 1996 Porsche 911 Cabriolet located in California. It’s a Tiptronic, which I’m sure will dull the enthusiasm of some of our readers, but it’s still a gorgeous drop-top with very capable performance.

It is with great trepidation that I am offering my 1996 993 Cabriolet for sale.
This car has had only three owners and has been kept in our family since 1998. This beautifully maintained Cabriolet is, in my opinion, one of the best color combinations Porsche ever produced for the 911. It is Midnight Blue with the matching blue Cabriolet Top and all Gray Interior. This car is a Tiptronic S with factory options that include the 8 way adjustable power leather seats for both the driver and passenger, the Hi Fi Sound Package with a 6 disk CD changer, 18” Hollow Spoke Technology “Turbo Twist” wheels.
