We made it to April and the convertible season is finally here. Personally, I’m not a huge convertible guy, but I appreciate them, and certainly more so when it’s on an iconic model. For the Porsche 993 generation, Porsche had a tough job to stash the folding soft-top somehow behind the rear seats and in front of the engine firewall, all while making it look good. Truth be told I think they did a great job considering the challenge, but I can’t say I’m ever tempted to go buy one. However, if I were in the market, today’s car might be one of the better ones.
This 1998 911 Carrera Cabriolet up for sale in Miami has the understate black exterior but went all in with Lobster Red leather on basically everything. Even better, this one has some extra goodies to top it all off.
I’m all for wild interiors. Give them to me all. If it is between beige or turquoise, I’ll take the turquoise any day of the week. Although the caveat here is that it has to make sense. I don’t want any Ronald McDonald-looking interior or some creation from “Crazy Rick’z House of Leather” that the fourth owner decided to go with. Today’s car, a very rare 1997 911 Turbo S, has one of those wild interiors. Although different, it misses wildly on one thing.
No, that isn’t a typo for the year. What we are looking at today is a 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet that doesn’t look like a 1987, but rather some year between 1995 and 1998. That wouldn’t be a huge deal other than the fact it is an entirely different chassis. What I’m trying to say is that someone took a G Body car and turned it into a 993 cosmetically. My guess is something like this happened way back when old 911s were downright cheap to what they sell for today and cutting up two 911s to make one 911 wasn’t seen as something totally insane to do. The good thing a quick look outside will have most convinced that you own a newer 993. However, the interior leaves a lot to be desired.
Please take your seat and buckle your seatbelts, because you will need them for this one.
This is a 1998 Porsche 911 Turbo S that was reportedly commissioned by His Highness Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Sabah, the 6th Prime Minister of the State of Kuwait. It is by far one of the craziest color combinations I’ve ever laid my eyes on. As you can see from the outside, it’s an unusual shade of Vanilla Yellow, but it isn’t until we open the doors until we see one of the most bizarre and perhaps offensive color schemes in existence. Please brace yourself for this one.
