With a new generation of Porsche’s evergreen sports car, the 911, upon us, now is a good time to look back at a more simple time, when the basic 911 was normally aspirated and air-cooled. This 993 for sale in Arizona is not a low-mileage collector car, but one that has certainly seen some action over two decades but looking no worse for wear. A new 911 will run you almost $90,000. For half of that ask, why not go vintage?

Considering the mileage and condition of this 993, the asking price is reasonable considering where prices are headed for these cars. We saw a https://germancarsforsaleblog.com/1995-porsche-911-carrera-coupe-3/ with over 100,000 miles sell for just shy of $56,000. That example was in a more rare shade of Riviera Blue and in similar condition to the car we see here. After speaking with Pablo Deferrari of flüssig magazine, who runs a similar 993, he suggested to set aside about $10,000, as this kind of mileage is right around the time you’ll start to consider a valve job and engine reseal. Whatever the case may be, the last of these air-cooled 911s are not getting any cheaper, so if you’ve been after one, time is of the essence.
