1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I’ve talked before on these pages about a 911’s presence when seen in traffic. It’s a difficult concept to articulate, but I think we all understand the idea: you see a car approaching in the distance with little more than the headlights and front end to hint at what it is and some cars stand out more so than others. The 964 and 993 both do this for me in ways that current 911s, and even the classic 911, fail to do. Each model does it in a different way, but it’s apparent none the less. My attention is grabbed immediately and my appreciation for those great cars increases all the more. For whatever reason I don’t see 993 Coupes very often; my area seems to have more Cabriolets. Alas. Anyway, unlike many models I really like lighter colors on the 993. The lighter shades help accentuate the 911’s graceful curves and while they don’t make for as aggressive an appearance they certainly are beautiful. The example here is no different: a Pastel Yellow 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in California, with Cashmere Beige leather interior and 32,483 miles on it.

We aren’t offered much here in the way of description, just the basics of mileage, year and model. My guess is this dealer doesn’t know a lot about this 993, but perhaps there will be additional documentation revealed upon investigation. So we’re left with the pictures. They do not disappoint. Both the exterior and interior present quite well and are consistent with what we’d expect from a 911 with this mileage. Given that mileage the asking price even strikes me as pretty reasonable considering this is one of the more rare colors on the 993. Pastel Yellow isn’t as bright and eye-catching as Speed Yellow, but for some that may be just the thing they’re after. For those thinking about long-term value the available documentation could decide the day here, but for someone who may just want a nice looking 993 Coupe to spend a good deal of time with I think you could do much worse than this one. For a base Carrera it isn’t cheap, but there’s certainly a lot to like here.
