Convertible Week: 1995 Porsche 993 C4 Cabriolet

Timeless doesn’t begin to describe the looks of the 911 no matter the generation and this 993 is certainly no exception. In the Porsche lineup, the 993 is the sweet spot as far as I’m concerned. The 993 is the highest evolution of the air-cooled cars and the 3.6 liter boxer six pushed the C4 to 60 in 5.7 seconds (5.2 for the C2) and topped out at 168 mph. Not too bad for a six cylinder. The 993 was the last car before the “ugly years” as I like to call them, when Porsche gave the 911 one of the worst face lifts it had ever had. Which ever generation you prefer, this low mileage 993 C4 for sale in Springfield, Missouri is a cool nice weather cruiser.

Wow, what a cool looking car! Corners and looks like a slot car! So much fun it ought to be against the law! Just serviced and passed a 100 point PPI inspection. Just in time for the sun to come out. Buy it! You’ll love it. Money isn’t worth anything unless you spend it. Will trade.

This is a beautiful low mileage car with great mods. Gemballa is one of my favorite Porsche tuners, even though their stuff tends to be on the wild side. That said, I’m not sure where the $56K price tag is coming from. With a top dollar retail value of $45K, I don’t see where the other $10K is coming from. The modifications could add about $5K, but all in all I feel this is a $47,000 car all day long. With less than two days left on the auction, I’ll be curious to see if anyone bites.

1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

The 911 is the stuff of automotive dreams for most people. Some deride the car for the fact that it hasn’t evolved much over its fifty year history, but I’ve always had a thing for these cars. There were so many good versions though, that if the opportunity presented itself, which 911 would I choose? An early 911S? The more reliable SC? Or maybe the exclusivity and lightweight goodness that comes with the 3.2 Clubsport package? Any of those 911s would be welcome in my garage, but the Turbo 993 variant we see here is one of the all time greats. Mixing classic air cooled performance with more modern amenities and all-wheel drive, this is where old and new converged for one last great hurrah before the air-cooled Porsche finally rode into the sunset at the close of the 1998 model year.

This 911 Turbo for sale in California presents pretty much as new, with only a little over 12,000 miles on the clock.

Year: 1996
Model: 911 Turbo
Engine: 3.6 liter twin turbo flat six
Transmission: 6-speed manual
Mileage: 12,800

1996 Porsche 993 Twin-Turbo, All Wheel Drive, 6-Spd, Only 12.8k miles! Truly like new. One of the cleanest 993 Turbos available for sale in the country! Will not dissappoint. Many people believe this model Porsche 911 993 TT to be one of the all time great sports cars – a true icon. 0-60 in 3.7 sec! At the time it was produced, this was the fastest production car in the world. Today, there are only a handful of cars that are faster.

Price: $89,000

The MSRP of this 911 Turbo originally hovered at the $100,000 mark. The asking price for this car doesn’t reflect much of a discount over the last 17 years, then. Even though this Turbo has the lowest mileage I’ve seen in a while, I’d almost be more inclined to seek out an example in equally good shape with around 40,000 to 50,000 miles on the clock and save a good chunk of change in the process. Regardless, this car has me drooling for the good old days when Porsche was solely a sports car manufacturer.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera

The 993 Carrera is one of the most coveted of all 911s, rendering it out of reach for a lot of enthusiasts. Even the most worn out examples won’t dip much below $20,000 and the most mint, low mileage Turbo models can glance six figures. Of all sports cars, the 911 is one of the most robust, reliable machines. The 993 is the last of the air-cooled 911s and represents the classic 911 at its zenith, before water cooling, electronic aides and even greater levels of greater luxury started to creep in. This 1995 911 Carrera for sale in California has higher mileage than your usual 993 of this vintage. But it looks honest and with a front bumper respray, it could make someone very happy for miles to come.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera on eBay

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe. Two owner car. Suspension, bushings, and shocks are tight. The motor pulls strong. The interior looks exceptionally clean and looks like a 70k miles car. Please email me if you would like an Autocheck. I will send a link. Front bumper had been repainted without sufficient flex additive for plastic bumpers some time ago and has lots of rock chips. It needs to be repainted again. The bottom part of the bumper had NOT been repainted and has NO rock chips.

For International bidders: Verschiffung nach Deutschland kostet $1,250. Ich kann auch die Verzollung und Lieferung vor die Haustuer fuer sie erledigen. Ich spreche Deutsch.

This car has its flaws, such as the broken speaker grille in the door and the front bumper, but with the service book stamped and just two owners, I would take a flyer on this car provided it was given a clean bill of health by a Porsche specialist. For the mileage, it looks quite clean and the interior looks very tidy with just the right amount of patina for the mileage. Around $20,000 is just about right for a Carrera 2 with similar mileage, so we’re not far off the mark price wise. I do prefer the Carrera 2 over the Carrera 4 as it would prove less costly in the long run and gives the driver a bit more of that pure 911 driving experience. Overall, this a nicely preserved example of one of Porsche’s greats that has me hankering for one really bad.

Theme Week: 1997 Techart 911 Turbo

As a German car enthusiast, I consider it my duty to own a Porsche at some point. There are many different ways I could see this happening, but if/when I marry into the 1%, it would make sense to buy the best of the breed. Sure, the 911 continues to evolve and impress, but I see a few too many soccer moms driving around 997 Turbos to consider jumping into the modern herd. A 993 Turbo with Techart improvements would do me just right with pre-bloat lines and crazy power.

I dig the overall stock look with hidden bite from the Techart upgrades, and the dark wheels on silver paint look perfectly mean. And those hips… good god, the 993 is awesome. Low mileage and choice upgrades on the most desirable of 993s make this a home run for me. The $70k Buy-It-Now seems in the wheelhouse for these turbos, but to be honest, if I moved up to top net worth percentile I wouldn’t care what it cost to get the right 993 Turbo.

1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

As car enthusiasts, we all had that poster of an exotic car hanging on our bedroom wall when we were younger. One of the cars that made the rounds in my room was this very car, an Arena Red 993 Turbo. This car was the culmination of over twenty years of experimentation with turbochargers in the 911. The addition of all-wheel drive made this car a much more tame prospect than its predecessors and you won’t mistake this for anything but the hot 911 with that sculpted, body colored wing. This 911 Turbo for sale in Ohio has just over 30,000 miles on the clock and includes more aggressive sports seats along with the rear seat delete option.

No matter the mileage or condition, the 993 911s are not cheap propositions, and the Turbo is even less so. Arena Red is a color that fits this car well, as evidenced by Porsches advertising at the time. It seems this color was on every Boxster and 911 to grace a magazine fold out in those days. The mileage on this one is certainly attractive, as it isn’t another one of those garage queens that has been stashed away for eternity. It’s good to see at least this car has gotten some exercise, but it still presents as new. The asking price of almost $84,000 is getting up there towards the top of the range. If this car was priced around $10,000 less, it would be an attractive buy for the person seeking one of the most revered 911s to date.

1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

The Porsche 993 will forever be immortalized by 911 enthusiasts. The last of the air-cooled 911s, this car was considered the pinnacle of Porsche engineering before the company sold out and started expanding offerings outside of the typical sports car genre. The Turbo was the latest in a long line of super fast 911s, and was the first Turbo to employ both twin turbochargers and all-wheel drive. With 400 horsepower on tap, these cars were capable of running to 60 mph in under four seconds, making it one of the fastest cars of the era. This Turbo for sale in New Jersey looks sinister in black and represents the first year of the Turbo for the 993.

1996 Porsche 911 Turbo on eBay

1996 Porsche 911 Turbo. Black on black leather. Only 33,917 miles. Rare collectible, looks stunning! Perfect color combination, 3M clear bra, H&R lowering springs, stainless steel exhaust tips, aluminum bezel dials, power seat package.

Condition: Unbelievable condition, runs and drives great. Paint is in excellent condition. Minor rock chips up front as can be expected but hardly noticeable. No accidents, clean auto check. Original tags throughout every panel. Non-smoker, wheels are in perfect condition. Garage queen.

Low mileage 993 Turbos have held their value well over time. Cars with under 30,000 miles can regularly bring $70,000 and higher. One must also keep in mind that the 1996 models differ from later 1997 and 1998 models, in that the later models had strengthened transmission shafts, a modifiable ECU and a passenger airbag shutoff sensor. While this car doesn’t have much more than 30,000 miles on the clock, there’s not much that makes it stand out amongst other mint Turbos on the market. I’d say the sweet spot for this car price wise would be in the $60,000 to $70,000 range.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

The last air-cooled 911, known internally as the 993, is revered amongst the Porsche faithful. This generation had its run while the sun was setting on the front engined Porsche 968 and 928 and the mid-engined Boxster was being introduced. A variety of improvements were made over the previous generation, the 964, most notably a new look, accentuated by headlights slanted at a steeper angle for better aerodynamics and a sleeker rear end. Underneath was a new multi-arm suspension in the rear. Along with a wider track, handling was greatly improved. The 3.6 liter flat six cylinder engine now produced 270 horsepower and was mated to either a 6-speed manual or 4-speed Tiptronic transmission.

Just in time for summer, our reader Joshua forwarded us his Aventurine Green 993 Cabriolet for sale via a broker in the San Francisco Bay Area.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

I am the second owner and have all records from new. Just before putting the car up for sale the brakes – genuine Porsche pads and rotors – have been replaced front and rear as well as the steering rack. A lightweight flywheel and new clutch were installed about 10k ago, along with rebuilt top end and new pistons and cylinders (due to oil loss from bad valve guides). 60k service items taken care of at time of motor work. About 15k on new Bilstein shocks and euro Porsche sport springs and sway bars. Car is well cared for, with attention to detail, such as worn carpet replaced and recent engine lid shocks. Top shows some wear, but is water tight.

The 993 is one of the most highly prized 911s these days, no doubt in part to the lukewarm reception its successor, the 996, received upon its arrival in 1998. Like the BMW M Roadster we featured last week, this color combination may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but the deep blue green accented by red leather does it for me. I find that most manufacturers these days lack imagination and nerve to offer much of anything outside of the usual silver, black and white. This two owner 911 is presented well, has reasonable mileage and had attention paid in the servicing department. A 993 Cabrio in good nick with 50,000 to 75,000 miles can pull anywhere from the high $20,000 range and reach close to $40,000, give or take. With two owners and 56,000 miles, the asking price of $33,900 seems to be right in the sweet spot of reasonable offers. Like earlier 911s such as the SC and 3.2, I’d say a 993 like this is a good way to get into a future classic that may have a shot at seeing meaningful appreciation.

I’ve Got The Itch: 1996 Porsche 993 Cabriolet For Sale

I have had this thing going on in the back of my head, my wife calls it “the voices.”  Well they have been strong and they want another Porsche.  I am guessing it is a 993, preferably a soft top, you know because Oregonians get so much sun.  Something a little like this…

1996 Porsche 993 Cabriolet:

911, 930, 993 trades welcomed.”

Neat car, I love the interior but this is coming from someone that owned a SLK with a similar color treatment.  It looks to be in wonderful condition and will treat the new owner very well.

The question I have is, why did the motor go at 76k miles?  I know it is a Porsche and there really is no rhyme or reason to these sorts of things.  But the fallacy is that the air cooled motors are more reliable than those new fangled water cooled engines.

Guess not!

All things being equal I would rather have a rebuilt motor than one in questionable shape I suppose.  At $37k it is no bargain but it is one of the last of the air cooled 911’s with a rebuilt motor, in a rare color combination, in very nice shape.

This does nothing to calm the voices.

Well Sorted Porsche 993 For Sale

It has been a year and a half since I sold my E39 M5.  It just does not make sense for me to have a car since I always seem to have several around I can drive.  The problem is none of them could be considered “enthusiast” vehicles by any means.  Frankly I am surprised I have held out as long as I have.

While it makes no sense whatsoever I have been having sinful thoughts about Porsche 993’s.  Maybe I will just get one for the summer.  Hopefully by the fall I will have come to my senses and I can go back to driving worn XC90’s and spunky MINI Coopers?  The problem is I don’t have the time to restore one, I need something turn key and ready to go.

A little something like this…

1995 Porsche 993:

Here is a great description from the seller –

“I figure I’m going to have to write this if I intend to sell the car, so here goes: Speed Yellow 993 C2. Never been smoked in, never been in an accident, never been in snow, and has VERY rarely seen rain. I shipped it in from California, where it was religiously maintained at High Performance House (650.364.6234). I have most records since new. It’s immaculate. Without getting into specifics, it pulls very hard, stops very well, and handles great.

Definitive “reluctant sale.” I don’t have to sell the car, and I’m finding that it’s killing me to write this. Porsche guys talk about buying cars that are “fully sorted” – this car is definitely that. Only thing it could use is a center taillight piece. I have the Autocheck (which is clear) and the VIN if you’re interested in doing a Carfax (which is clear) instead. The car has been maintained by Taylor Chapman (of Chapman Auto Works – 703.467.9130) since its arrival in Virginia. I would think that either shop would vouch for the condition 993 in a heartbeat.

Sure yellow would not be my first choice and I would want to go with the stock deck lid but other than that there is so much right with this car.  The brake upgrade, exhaust, spotless interior, and wheels compliment this very nice 993.  The asking price of $37.5k is not out of the realm of possibility either and I am sure $35k would get it sold quickly.

This 993 looks like a car that costs twice as much and has the performance to back it up.  Here is to hoping it finds a good home.

Big Bird: 600 HP 1996 Porshce 993 For Sale With No Reserve

There are gobs of built Porsche 911’s out there, some are done well and others… not so much.  This Big Bird is one of the nicest builds I have seen in some time.  600 hp and no stone left unturned.  Buy the buyer’s estimation they have $300k into her and it is up for auction at no reserve.

1996 Porsche 993 Twin Turbo Twin Plug:

From the seller –

“Selling my ultra custom 1996 Porsche twin turbo-twin plug 3.8 liter powerhouse with over 600HP… aka BIG BIRD.

This is an amazing car and hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I have enjoyed driving her.  She was last on display at the Legends of the Autobahn meet in Monterey California summer 2011. See the PCA spotlight video below with PCA president Manny Alban featuring the car.

Where do I start? The motor is probably the most fascinating part of the car and is a crowd pleaser. The car was designed and engineered by S-CARGO racing in San Rafael,CA.   They are one of the top Porsche air cooled specialists in the west coast. Known for building unbelievable air cooled Porsches. Twin plug conversions along with custom fabrication and design are their forte. Thank you Rob and Mark and the entire S-Cargo staff for putting in the hard work and building this masterpiece. The car was built so that it would be reliable enough for daily driving and simple enough for another Porsche shop to work on if needed.

Now more about the car. It started out as a completely stock 1996 Porsche C4S.  So much has been changed, upgraded and modified that the car is far from stock. The car was meant to be a dream car build and everything done first class with open check book.

Over 300k has been invested in this beauty with records and documentation of build. The motor is a completely rebuilt twin turbo 3.8 with twin plug (12 spark) conversion. It has 2 plugs firing per cylinder. Essential to achieve optimum power for high performance engines. Since high compression ratios are used, twin-ignition allows all of the power benefit to be gained from the increase. Twin-plug equipped 911 and 930′s run much crisper and cleaner with lower cylinder head temperatures and improved throttle response. Plus, a twin-plug 911 is much less prone to plug fouling with today’s fuel.

Besides the damage to one’s bank account, there isn’t one drawback to installing this system and enjoying the benefits in throttle response, power and great drivability that twin-ignition adds to any 911. Quite a difference!. In some cases, it is a necessity to realize the maximum gains from a complete set of engine modifications.

Over 100k alone was spent on the motor build and modifying it not including the cost of the initial motor (about 30k). The turbos were replaced with massive Garrett GT30 custom polished turbos.  The ECU was programmed by Protomotive.   The heads were port and polished. GT3 oil pump was added and an additional oil cooler was added in front bumper for extra cooling.

The transmission was dissembled and upgraded with Guards GT4060 limited slip differential, and viscous coupling, high performance clutch and completely resealed.   The real beauty of this build is the specialized fabrication and fitment of the parts. The heater box, headers, and exhaust were all carefully crafted for this car. Even small details like the turbo inlet tubes made of plastic were replaced with custom fabricated aluminum lines for reliability and performance.  All of the work is beautifully done and very expensive but well worth it.  She is a rolling work of art and people love to see and hear it run.

She is not hard to miss. The speed yellow paint is gleaming bright. All bodywork done by UACC in Burlingame,CA. The body was professionally refinished in its factory color Speed Yellow and rain gutters have been shaved just like the real Yellowbird RUF Porsche.  Paint job and custom body cost over 20k.  The RUF body kit(not obtainable any more) was carefully fit to the body. Recaro A8 seat backs and roll bar were color matched and installed.  Immediately upon completion it was sent to S-Cargo racing for its transformation.”

So much to like about this car.  It is one thing to built a spare no expense car but to do it in such a way that blends with the overall purpose of the car is truly extraordinary.  It’s all here, motor, paint and body, interior, brakes, clutch, transmission were all addressed.  This is important because if there were a weak spot the 600HP motor would find it.

The best part is this 993 is offered at no reserve.  Current bidding sits at $73k with a few days to go.  I think a final bid in the $85k area would be appropriate and fair for all parties involved.  It takes a great deal of courage to sell a car such as this with no reserve, kudos to the seller on building such a fine 993.
