1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

This car grew on me quite quickly. When I first saw it I thought it was a nice enough 993 Coupe. The condition looks good and the mileage is pretty low. As I’ve looked at it more it’s not so much that any of those thoughts have changed, but rather that its overall appearance is much better than I thought. I believe I’ve said a few times before that I find white to be a color that works particularly well on some cars, while on others I don’t like it at all. I have never been able to figure out what makes such a stark difference to me – and I do think this is very much a personal thing.

As you’d probably guess I’m finding white to be particularly nice on the 993 and, of course, on this 993. Some of the 993 Turbos I’ve seen in white are even better! In this case it is the combination of interior and exterior that are really attracting me. This is a Glacier White 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in California, with Cashmere Beige interior and 58,690 miles on it.

2dr Carrera Coupe 6-Speed Manual

Pretty much everything we can figure is good about this car comes to us through the pictures. The seller has left them to tell the story and provided little else but the basic facts. What we see is quite good and there’s little I can see in the way of complaint. There is a reason that many find the 993 to be the best and most beautiful of the 911 designs. For what is a fairly standard 911 this one shows off that beauty pretty well. I wouldn’t say there’s anything special about it, but it’s still a good-looking Carrera.

As I said, the seller hasn’t provided us with much more than the pictures so any details about history and its servicing will require questions or research. Let’s just hope it all checks out. Unless we discover any peculiar details that would make this 993 more rare than it seems, then I’d guess this asking price is a little bit on the high-end, but overall I wouldn’t expect it to sell for too much lower. It’s certainly quite pretty though!
