“Porsche's 1995 911—or the 993 generation—advanced technology and performance, but… remained true to the rear-engined sports car that launched in 1965.” Car and Driver, 1994
That summary of Car and Driver's test of the 1995 Porsche 911 captures why this particular 911 series is in such demand from collectors: Balance. Advanced technology with true 911 character. Earlier 911s tended to be a bit light on the former; later series were arguably lighter on the latter. So enthusiasts generally agree: the 993 series definitely hit a sweet spot in the more than half a century of 911 sports car history. It didn't hurt a bit that the 993 was the first 911 with air conditioning that actually worked!
Offered here is a low-mileage 1995 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet in classic black-over-black leather. Documented by Carfax, the car has traveled just 36,000 miles since new, a well below-average of under 1,500 miles per year. Owned in Florida, North Carolina, and Michigan, the car's history shows no accidents or unusual repairs. Appropriate service by authorized Porsche dealers is documented.
While the more than 185 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this Porsche 911 Carrera in detail, we encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance, or get in touch by phone or email if you have any questions.
The exterior paint is in overall excellent condition with some forward-facing surfaces (notably the front bumper cover and mirror caps) showing light wear and minor road rash consistent with the car's age and mileage. Factory-applied rear wheel-edge protective coverings are in place. The black fabric convertible top shows no tears or unusual wear. Factory “Carrera” branded “Cup” wheels are in place with Michelin all-season performance tires mounted. Behind the wheels, the silver “Porsche” logo disc brake calipers grab cross-drilled and ventilated rotors. Window glass and headlight lenses are undamaged. The car's rear speed-activated pop-up spoiler operates properly.
Inside, the updated 993-series design is pleasing to the eye and more comfortable versus earlier 911 generations. Black leather seats show only minor wear consistent with age and use, but there are no tears or rips. Rear seats appear as-new. The lower door sills show no evidence of damage often found from scrapes caused by inattentive entry. The factory anti-buffeting wind screen is in place and operational. Embroidered Porsche-logo floormats are in place over original carpeting. The dash shows no cracking or sun damage, and the classic 911 instrument-cluster shows no fading and the glass is clear. The 6-speed manual transmission shifter exhibits no wear marks often seen arising from owners wearing rings on their right hand. The audio head unit has been upgraded with an aftermarket unit offering satellite radio connectivity, and backed up with a professionally installed JL Audio amplifier located in the car's “frunk.” Porsche's Drive Block factory-standard anti-theft immobilizer system with keyfob activation is in place and operational. The ashtray shows no sign of use.
Under the rear hood, the 270-horsepower 3.6-liter flat-six boxer engine and associated components all appear complete and unmodified. Air conditioning functions as it should. Underneath, there is no evidence of rust, and the 4-wheel drive system is tidy. All protective panels are in place and undamaged.
The car's factory-applied option sticker decodes as follows:
CO2- US Emissions
437- 8-way electrical driver's seat
454- Cruise control
490- Sound system
694- CD Radio-Alpine 7807
In addition to all the advantages of owning a 911, the 993-series Carreras added to the reputation for owner-friendly long-term satisfaction. After a nearly 2-year-long extended test drive, Motor Trend put it this way: “'It's been a helluva 22 months and 25,000 miles with the Carrera 4,' summarized Editor Tune. 'Through its exploits with 15 different drivers, 116 fill-ups, nearly 20 quarts of oil, and six new tires, the … 911 has turned more heads and twisted more adrenal glands than any other long-term car in MT history.'"
This black-on-black 993 is all ready for its next owner to add many more miles and countless memorable trips to its history.
