Riviera Blue 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Those who have been reading these pages for a while will know that pastel blues make up some of my favorites colors on the 911. Porsche has made such colors available since the 911’s earliest days and while the name may change the basic look is the same. For the 993 that means Riviera Blue. While Riviera Blue may be most properly found on something like the RS or GT2 – you know, a model where standing out is about more than just the color – it still works wonderfully on the basic Carrera and brings a good deal of flash to the 993’s graceful curves. It has always been a highly sought-after color on this model so when I come across one I always like to bring it to other’s attention. The one we see here is one of the few I’ve come across with something other than a Black interior. Here we have a Riviera Blue 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Miami, with a dark blue leather interior and 87,232 miles on it.

The market for these 911s has never really come down into value territory and this one really isn’t much different, even if at the moment bidding remains pretty reasonable at $50,500. Reasonable at least within the world of the 993. I really like the blue interior here and find that it works much better than the more common black. Perhaps such a bright exterior needs something a little bit lighter than all black in order to really shine. Regardless of why, I think it works. The rest of this 993 appears pretty standard and unremarkable, and I mean that as a positive. The appeal here is the exterior color draped over the lines of the last of the air-cooled 911 line. Those aspects alone should attract plenty of interest just as long as everything else has been well kept. The air-cooled 911 market has been a bit up and down over the past year, but the 993 has seemed somewhat of an exception as it’s remained mostly stable. I think an example like this one would be exactly the sort to fit that bill. I don’t think we’d see it shoot up in value – the miles are already high enough to move it out of low-mileage territory – but it should be able to be enjoyed while holding its value fairly well. There is nothing wrong with that at all!

  1. I love the color. The front appears to have been hit. The gaps on the front bumper cover are pretty off. I wonder what they want for it?

  2. The rear gaps around the tail lights dont look that great either

  3. Love the exterior color. The blue interior is so dark it might as well be black. I’d rather see a grey interior and not black or navy blue.

  4. Yeah, I think this one has been dinged a couple of times.

    I really love the color combo, I am a huge fan of blue interiors. But this one has a lot of questions.

  5. I noticed the gaps in the front as well and wondered if my eyes were deceiving me. Since everyone else is confirming that I guess they were not. It’s definitely something to inquire about.

    @Jfa1177, I too would love to see something less dark, Tan would be my ultimate preference, but I just haven’t come across Riviera Blue in that combination. Almost everything has been black and in that regard I do think the dark blue here is a nice change of pace.

  6. No offense to anyone that may live there but I would never buy a car in Miami. I have seen and heard of too many scams and shady sellers there.

  7. all the “question marks” don’t seem to have deterred the bidding frenzy on this car, though. I guess that’s the power of Riv Blue?!
