1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

At its current price I really don’t think this Arctic Silver Metallic 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is going to sell. I also realize that’s a somewhat strange way to begin a post. The reason I’ve chosen to feature this 911 is because I think it looks superb, if not in the most exciting color combination. The mileage is low, though not absurdly so, and it appears to be in original condition. The problem really only is the price. That isn’t a small problem, but with some patience perhaps that price comes down a bit and then you may be left with a very nice looking 993 that you can enjoy with less worry about the miles affecting its value. That in itself is a lovely thing.

1998 Porsche 911 Targa

I’ve always had a thing for green cars. This is especially the case when we are shopping in the darker side of the color spectrum. As we move lighter and brighter my preferences shift much more towards the blues and away from the greens. But as an alternative to black, a dark green car does the trick for me and that’s exactly what we have here today. A Forest Green Metallic 1998 Porsche 911 Targa, located in Brooklyn, with a Cashmere leather interior and 79,705 miles on it. I’ve said before that I strongly prefer these dark green exteriors to be paired with a lighter tan interior and that contrast certainly shows well here. It’s a very earthy contrast blending both light and dark, but without the significant starkness we find with black and tan. Some will prefer an all-black interior, and I think that would look pretty good as well, but for me the contrast we see here works better.

As most are aware, Porsche made significant changes to the Targa design for the 993. No longer would we see the removable center panel and fixed roll hoop. In its place was a large retractable glass panel. This provided a similar sense of openness to the cockpit as the previous design, but without the need for removing and stowing the top any time you decided you wanted that open air sense.…

1997 Porsche 911 Targa

As someone who is not typically a fan of white cars in general I must admit that the color looks really great on this 993. This is a Glacier White 1997 Porsche 911 Targa, located in Alabama, with Midnight Blue interior and 37,937 miles on it. I’ve come across this color combination before and it is one that I like, but I don’t recall it looking this good! It is a fitting pairing that creates an icy appearance through its combination of a dark blue with bright white. This particular example looks in excellent condition and while the 993 Targa has never been my favorite design I can definitely see the appeal in this application. Though with a starting bid set at $62K, the asking price appears to be pretty high so we’ll have to see whether it can sell.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

This is a super fine example of a glass top Targa produced very near the end of the air cooled Porsche era.

Note the rare factory option “paint to body” white Cup wheels.

It is in pristine condition in almost every detail; ready for a showroom, a collection, a Concours or a fast drive in the country.

Low Milage: 37,937

Just completed the 30,000 service. Porsche Certificate of Authenticity included.

This 993 came with a decent option list and everything looks to be in original condition. The highlight of the list is probably the Glacier White painted 17″ Cup wheels. I don’t know that having the wheels painted the body color would have been my preference, but they do look good here and a set of Cup wheels in general is always a nice thing to have.…

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

I will begin with this question: is the price of this 911 reasonable? I ask because for as long as I can remember the 993 has never really struck me as priced reasonably relative to other 911s. Or, at least, I think it’s fair to say that prices for the 993 never really dropped to the same levels that we have seen with other 911 models. Whether those prices are reasonable then depends on a whole host of other factors. So let’s keep that sense of relative pricing in mind. We all know the reasons for the 993’s pricing: they are the last of the great air-cooled 911s and come in a very sexy package. Porsche also switched to a more mass production method of manufacture with the 996, which gives the 993 a certain level of additional cachet. Naturally collectors have loved them. But when the miles increase and the air-cooled market cools off, then perhaps we start finding more 993s with lower asking prices.

The one we see here, a Midnight Blue 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with Cashmere Beige interior and 107,100 miles on it, seems to fit that bill priced at $44,900.

1996 PORSCHE 993 C4 “Well serviced, Good Records, Excellent throughout”

VIN: WP0AA2995TS32572

The Porsche 911 is arguably the most recognizable and iconic sports car ever made. Refined from 1965 until the present day, they are highly sought after for their great looks and wonderful performance.

1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

I don’t see a 993TT very often. That is, on the streets, at least. I see them for sale all the time. A week or so ago I was sitting outside enjoying the weather and one drove by. I had forgotten just how stunning these cars could be in the flesh. There is a fluidity to their shape that is best seen when they are on the move. Pictures simply do not do them justice. I sometimes find the standard 993 to be almost boring, or too pretty (I will freely admit this is a stupid criticism), so I get pulled to the earlier 911s with more severe lines. That tends to apply to whether I see them in pictures or on the street. While the Turbo has never really fit within that criticism I have at times thought it was overly elegant compared with a 930.

I have now been returned to sanity.

Here we have a very nice example of these great machines: a Black 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Atlanta, with matching Black interior and 64,613 miles on it. Of particular interest among the options is a nice set of hard-back sport seats.

The 911, with the internal design number 993, remains the one true love for many Porsche purists. Being the fourth-generation 911 design and the last 911 equipped with an air-cooled engine, it embodies what many Porsche drivers consider to be the heart of Porsche.

The 993’s integrated bumpers and pleasing design underscore the smooth elegance of its styling, including its new polyellipsoid headlights along with the beautifully sculpted curved flanks of the widebody.

Pastel Yellow 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Not everyone likes a bright colored car. But dark colors don’t necessarily suit either. Maybe you want something in between: a color that still provokes the vibrancy and enthusiasm of a bright color, but with a slightly lower profile. We aren’t talking about blending in per se, but still only attracting a suitable amount of notice. Speed Yellow, perhaps the most common (most popular?) of the yellows Porsche has offered does not really fit this standard. It’s very bright; it does not blend in, unless you’re very close to the sun, or perhaps a field of sunflowers. Pastel Yellow, on the other hand, seemingly in contradistinction to its name is a bit less bright than Speed Yellow. For the buyer interested in yellow, but without going the whole way, it makes for a very nice alternative.

Here it graces the lines of a really nice looking 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, located in Colorado, that wears the factory Aerokit Turbo II and sits with 61,805 miles on it.

Turquoise Metallic 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

Will I ever warm to the 993 Targa? I will admit that when I see one on the street I like them. But I like them in the same way that I like every other 993: they are a very nice design and look great. This is precisely my problem: the 993 Targa looks just like every other 993. For some (many?) that may be exactly the appeal. For me, it is not because I like the way other Targas stand out and I like the general design aesthetic of the classic Targa. Who knows, perhaps the original Targa design with the roll hoop accentuated would not have looked good on the 993. I just know that I prefer the original, and now current, Targa.

But I am not everyone and even I can admit that the Targa we see here does look really good. Here we have a Turquoise Metallic 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, located in Miami, with Ivory interior and around 81,000 miles on it.

1996 Porsche 911 | 993 Targa | 6 Speed /3.6 LITER

Desirable and Rare Turquoise Metallic on IVORY interior

California and Louisiana Owned Targa
No Rust, Dry Undercarriage, Body is Straight and Solid

The 993 generation of the Porsche 911 is mostly referred to as the best and most desirable of the 911 series, not only because of its beauty,
but also because its performance is very good, even by modern standards, and the 993 was “the last complete “modern classic”,
“the 993 was and forever will be that last fresh breath of air that Porsche gave the world; elegance and muscle all in one package.”

The interior and exterior are in beautiful condition, paint shines beautifully with very minor chips from normal use.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I have a thing for yellow 993s. I like a variety of yellow cars in general, though it doesn’t work well on every car. I also like the 993, though it isn’t my favorite 911. The two taken together work wonderfully and I think of the various yellow 911 models it is the 993 that looks the best. Maybe it’s the shape; maybe it is that the 993 has fewer trim and accent pieces allowing that bright yellow exterior to show more fully. Whatever the particular reason I love it and it provides just what I’m after in a yellow car. The one we see here is a Speed Yellow 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Miami, with Black interior and just 24,846 miles on it and it’s up for auction without reserve.

1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

I will begin with my slight disappointment in this 993. When I first came upon it the lighting in the thumbnail altered the color just enough that I thought it was paint-to-sample Blood Orange. That’s one of my all-time favorite Porsche colors and given the asking price it would have made sense. Alas, it’s Guards Red and not Blood Orange. Oh well. That mild disappointment aside, this is a fantastic example of these air-cooled twin turbos with very low mileage and excellent condition. It also has a set of the hardback sport seats, highly sought after commodities in their own right. Not that a buyer would be likely want to part with them, but still very nice to have!

Beautiful museum quality collector Porsche. 1996 993 Twin turbo with attractive options and only 8800 original miles. All original paint and panels and perfect mechanical condition. No modifications were ever performed. Guards red over Cashmere leather with hard to find sport seats and factory Pioneer radio option. Window sticker, COA, service records, manuals and both keys. The market is on the way up on these so catch this collector example now.

We’ve seen a few of these ultra-low mileage 993s – some of the turbocharged variety and others either the C2S or C4S – and they always attract a good bit of collector interest. The prices can be a little mind boggling relative to similar cars with higher miles, but such is the world of the last air-cooled 911. Lest we think this price is totally ridiculous a ’97 993TT with just over 1K miles sold for $308K at Gooding and Co.’s Amelia Island auctions last month.…

1998 Porsche 911 Carrera S … Cabriolet?

Coming across a factory version of a model that doesn’t actually exist is always a lot of fun. At least it is for me as someone who will view this 993 from afar, analyze and read about it, and then write. Were I an actual interested buyer I’d either be very anxious – perhaps because I was already aware of this car’s existence and waiting for a sale – or befuddled as I try to track down all of the necessary verification to support the factory production of such a rarity. But either way there’s plenty to look at. The 993 Carrera S, also known as the C2S, was only produced as a Coupe. It’s a wonderful car; one of my favorite 911 designs Porsche has released. It seems, however, that at least one buyer convinced Porsche to make a Cabriolet and it is that car which we see here. The asking price is astronomical and the mileage is very low. All of which combines to make for a very special 911.

Absolutely rare example of a 993 „S“ Convertible with turbo body.

Original Porsche factory conversion to turbo body according to special customer request. This model has never been available through the official Porsche sales program.

This Porsche has been ordered new in late 1997 by a gentleman, who had been a Porsche enthusiast for quite a long time. Therefor at that time he already had purchased a significant number of vehicles from Porsche in Stuttgart. Obviously he was able to convince the engineers at the Porsche Exclusive Department to convert his brandnew 993 convertible to a 993 „S“ Cab with a turbo body.
