Seller's Comments

The last of the air-cooled Porsches is already a designation that is becoming worth its weight in gold. But then you add in a terrific original color combo, pristine presentation, and the everlasting allure of a droptop, and this 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera is in the new class of dream classics. The 993 generation of the Porsche 911 is the ultimate evolution and expression of the original car for many. It takes the purity of the iconic design – with its race-inspired tall headlights and wraparound rear end – and gives it a bit of updated streamlining. This design looks particularly striking in the Forest Green Metallic paint. The factory-correct color is the perfect '90s signpost that also looks quite modern today. Part of the reason why the car can be so timeless is because of great care over its two-owner lifetime. That's why the panels are so straight, the doors still shut with Teutonic authority, and we even suspect that deep green paint to be original. While the black folding roof looks great against the forest-like paint, the car looks even better when you take it down. That's because we love the truly European color combo of the dark green against the tan leather interior. Stepping inside you sit in the comfortable and supportive bucket seat that power adjust to the perfect position – after all, this is a true driver's car. And Porsche's race-ready sensibilities also means the tachometer is directly in front of you. The rest of the instruments surround this in their own clearly marked pods to give you a comprehensive view of what's going on with the engine. While this is all meant to be a car focused for the road, it doesn't skip on comfortable features. This includes keyless entry, power locks, cruise control, driver's airbag, AM/FM/CD stereo, and provisions for air conditioning. And we know you're going to love the power windows and power folding roof. That way you don't even have to leave the driver's seat to take you from enclosed comfort to that perfect open air experience where you hear that distinctive motor make its symphony. Lift the rear hatch to see arguably your favorite part of this car. The air-cooled flat-six is the bedrock of Porsche's reputation, and this is its final evolution. The 3.6-liter was one of the most advanced powerplants of its time. It includes the Varioram system which allows the motor to have a boarder, flatter torque curve that results in excellent performance, especially from a standstill. And you have full control over the best air-cooled motor thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. This is truly when Porsche threw their engineering prowess into the 911 – it's even the time when they introduced the deploying rear panel for better aerodynamics at speed. The 911 has always been famous for its sporty fully-independent suspension. The 993 built on top of that with a very modern setup that added performance, while also subtracting legendary oversteer. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy Dunlop tires on the factory 17-inch alloys, and this is a terrific all-around driving machine. This is such a well-presented modern legend. It's the droptop you get to enjoy on the backroads today and watch the admiration appreciate over the years. Don't miss out on the perfect Porsche, call today!
