Decent value 993 Cabrio for sale


8 Mar 2013
LOVE the 355 next to it. If I ever sell the 993, it will have to be a 355 (or 348) next!

993 Varioram cab,Hardbacks, AC, Turbo twists £5k spend over last 2 years (1996) - For sale Privately, in Surrey, United Kingdom £20,995


Here we have for sale my 1996 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera Tiptronic S Cabriolet. The car is finished in Midnight Blue Metallic with blue leather and blue hood (replaced new in 2004) . It has the 3.6 litre Varioram engine giving 285 bhp (209KW). The last of the air cooled Porsches ....

It has covered 122,000 miles and has a fully documented service history, as below. This car is in excellent usable condition for year and mileage.

Recent paint work to the wings has been done. As far as I am aware (and Peter Morgan's report confirms this) there has never been any major accident damage.

No expense has been spared in terms of maintenance. It is in original, un-mucked about condition.

I had a Peter Morgan 190 point report prepared in 2008 and would welcome any prospective buyer commissioning a similar report: that's how confident I am of the cars present condition. You're welcome to a copy of that report, just ask!

All original handbooks are present and correct with two alarm fobs, keys etc.

It is taxed to 31/05/14 and has an MOT to October 2014.

The car came with the following factory options, all of which (including the air con!) work as they should.

Air conditioning
Tiptronic S automatic gearbox
Steering wheel gear change switches
Factory lowered sport chassis
18" turbo alloys (professionally refurbished)
Full turbo leather pack
Four spoke sports steering wheel
Carbon backed sports seats
Power hood
Electric windows, mirrors & seats
Third brake light
Factory wind deflector
On-board computer
Top tinted windscreen
Tonneau cover

It also has an Pioneer CD/MP3 player, with plumbed-in iPod/iPhone/iPad connection and Bluetooth, a Cat 1 alarm & immobiliser. It is fitted with a tracker.

The service history, all supported with Service Book entries, invoices, MOTs etc, is as follows:-

Only for sale as apparently I can't keep all of the toys !!! Always stored in heated garage with battery conditioner.
They should sell the hardback separately - worth at least £5k on the open market :thumbs:

Carbon backed seats :hand: In your dreams.

I will say that is a very well scripted advert. If I was in the market for a Tip Cab I'd be interested. :thumb:
Carbon backed seats Hand In your dreams.

Having owned a set of 993 hardbacks before - the advert should read 'sparkly backed plastic' - if they were made of carbon then perhaps hardbacks would be worth some of the astronomical sums they go for.

Seems like a good car for the money - although selling a cabriolet in Feb with the weather we're having at the moment is probably not going to be the easiest task.
