I don’t come across a lot of what I would consider reasonably priced 993s. As the last of the air-cooled 911s the 993 always has been pretty highly prized and it seems like prices never really dipped into the reasonable territory of most of its predecessors or its successor. Well, especially its successor. This one, however, doesn’t seem priced too badly. With an asking price of $48K it’s not inexpensive by any means, but relative to a lot of other air-cooled options these days that’s not too bad.
Here we have a paint-to-sample Oak Green Metallic 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, located in Boise, with a Classic Grey leather interior and 93,310 miles on it. To make it just that little bit more special it is also equipped with a set of the very desirable hard-back sport seats.

This 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is a fantastic investment because it is the last of the air cooled Porsches and is seen by many Porsche purest as the last truly great 911’s. This particular Porsche is an extremely great investment piece because of the very rare factory sport seats and the paint to sample in a Oak Metallic Green”. The 6-speed manual is connected to the 3.6L flat 6 which produces the signature growl and produces the most power of any 993’s with 285hp. With only 93,300 miles this car is ready for a new owner. Comes with a new top.

There is a 993 Cabriolet in my neighborhood (frequently parked on the street because people are silly) that attracts my notice any time I walk past. It’s not terribly special since it’s just a silver 993, but the 993 in general always is a lovely sight and I see few enough of them that I might as well pause and look it over. This one would attract my attention so much more. It is just much, much, prettier. I don’t see a lighter green on the 993 very often. Given that this one is paint to sample I suppose that shouldn’t be surprising. It’s a really nice color on the 993’s lines though. The metallic sparkle shows the curves well. A grey interior isn’t the most exciting, but it at least provides some contrast.
Everything on this particular 993 looks in very good shape. The Oak Green exterior shows very well and there don’t appear to be any obvious blemishes. The same goes for the interior, which appears to show a bit of wear to the center armrest, but otherwise looks in very nice shape. The wonderful sport seats look great with little apparent wear. At 93,310 miles the mileage isn’t on the super low-end, but it’s quite reasonable given the car’s age. In all regards this one looks ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. If everything here is well documented, and that’s the only thing we’re really missing from the ad, then at $48K I think it makes for a pretty good buy. It’s a rare color with a pair of desirable seats and in good condition. Enjoy it now and it may even be worth a little more down the road.
