1998 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

I don’t usually go out of my way to feature a 911 with Tiptronic, but for whatever reason this 993 really got my attention and more or less seems like just the sort of air-cooled 911 one might look for if a Tiptronic actually was desired. The 993 itself has always struck me as a particularly elegant design within the air cooled world. Some of the more aggressive edges of earlier 911s have been smoothed and the curves accentuated. The color combination of this particular 993 further enhances that elegant look. Add to that the very fact that this is a Cabriolet and I think you have the recipe for a 911 cruiser where an automatic might be preferred. Here we have a Forest Green Metallic 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, located in Nashville, with Red leather interior and 58,279 miles on it.

The seller doesn’t waste much time in rationalizing the presence of the Tiptronic transmission in this 911 and for some he’s pretty much on the mark with regard to its appeal. Of course, that appeal is limited among 911 fans and it is on that point that the current asking price will be a tough sell. It’s current price is in the area of where we might expect a manual-transmission 993 to sell. Equipped with the Tiptronic transmission instead, that price seems unlikely. Still, it’s a lovely color combination and certainly unique among 911 Cabriolets. I suspect, however, that current bidding at $37,100 may be about as high as buyers are willing to go.
