I suppose someone has to drive it. “It” in this case is a 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera. A classic 911 finished in Polar Silver over a rare Flamenco Red leather interior. It also has 18″ turbo-look wheels, a sunroof, and just 67,000 miles. One minor catch – it’s also got a gearbox that shifts itself.

Possibly the most recognizable car every produced, it is lusted after around the world. The air-cooled Porsche 911’s evolution from its first model year in 1965 until its demise in 1998 made for a great legacy. Although they all shared similar body styling cues, the understructure of the cars differed greatly. They showed us the passion for perfection that only German engineers aspire for and demand. At the start of the 1995 model year, the final version of this infamous air-cooled Porsche 911 would make its appearance.
We are very excited to offer this very well-kept 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe finished in Polar Silver Metallic with Flamenco Red Leather interior. This Carrera 2 is powered by its naturally aspirated 3.6L Flat 6-cylinder air cooled engine producing a sporty 282 horsepower and 250 lb. ft. of torque mated to a 4-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. Features include fog lamps, power windows & heated mirrors, Porsche floormats, AM/FM cassette player with trunk-mounted 6-disc CD changer, dual exhaust, ABS vented disc brakes, power sunroof, power extendable rear spoiler, tinted windows, and 18″ turbo-look wheels with tires measuring 225/40ZR18 in the front and 265/35ZR18 in the rear.
This Porsche sold new from Steve Clifford Motors in Provo, Utah with its first owner titling it in Wyoming, then selling 4 years later in 2000 with around 34,000 miles on the odometer. It would make its way to the Littleton, Colorado area with the second owner who kept it for 13 years before selling it with approximately 62,500 miles on the odometer. While in his care, this Porsche was serviced regularly at Stevenson Imports which is the local Colorado Porsche dealership in the Denver region, including the 60K Scheduled Maintenance at 61,589 miles. When it traded hands in 2013 with a new owner, also a Colorado resident, it was driven sparingly in dry weather and serviced regularly at Porsche of Colorado Springs until it was sold in 2019 with only 65,000 miles. That is when it made its way to a new central Missouri owner also bought this beautiful Porsche to enjoy as a fair weather, weekend investment. It is only being offered today because another Porsche has been purchased to replace this one.
It’s easy to see this Porsche has been properly cared for over the years before coming into our showroom. According to the clean, accident free CarFax report, it has been serviced routinely with an brake fluid flush in 2013 and alternator replacement in 2014. More recently, it received new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires in January 2022 along with a new battery November 2022. This Porsche 911 comes with its original owner’s manual, copy of window sticker, factory paint touch-up kit, space saving spare tire, complete tool kit, and original Porsche air compressor all stored nicely in the front trunk with the plastic tire bag and service gloves.
This 911 Carrera now shows 66,812 miles with the exterior paint showing some normal wear conducive to the mileage, while the interior shows exceptionally well without any major wear noted on any surfaces. The windows have been tinted. These 993-series and proven to be a safe investment option as they are always sought after by Porsche enthusiasts and car collectors. Thank you for your interest and please contact sales for additional information or schedule a visit to our showroom for a closer look!
Yes, this is a Tiptronic car. Not exactly the end of the world, but I think this will be seen by most as a disappointment. However, in theory, that means you can grab a Tiptronic car for a nice discount all things being equal. That doesn’t seem to be the case here.
$70,000 for a Tiptronic C2? I know it has the good wheels and a crazy interior color, but you can find so many manual C2s for that kind of money. We just saw a similar car sell in the low $50s a few weeks ago. A set of Turbo-twist wheels does not add $15,000 to the value. We don’t need to go on any longer here. Just another dreaming dealer.
