LAST OF THE AIR COOLED 911's, 55K ORIGINAL MILES, NICE COLOR COMBINATION
Porsche 911 enthusiasts know this is the one, the last of the air-cooled 911s, the final iteration of the original, and in drop-top guise it's still a stunner. This 1995 Carrera cabriolet is a winner in every way, from the great color combination to the 6-speed manual gearbox, and if you were thinking that it was time to get a new Porsche, you should probably try this one on for size first.
There's no doubt this is a 911, from the headlights to the subtly curved rear end, there's sports car DNA in this convertible that stretches back two generations. The 993 was highly refined but lost none of the proportions that made the 911 so special, and Porsche engineers were careful to keep the essence intact while adding performance, comfort, and confidence. The Polar Silver paint accents the Teutonic shape perfectly, neither flashy nor invisible, knowing that this car needs no extra flash. Fit and finish are to typically excellent Porsche standards, and with just 55,066 original miles, it has obviously been a special car from the day it came home. The paint shines up beautifully, and while there are a few signs of use, it certainly doesn't look the better part of 10 years old. Of course some of that is due to the timeless design, but there's no question that this car has been expertly maintained.
Supportive leather bucket seats in dark charcoal gray give the interior a serious look that shows off the minimalist design. There's the usual wear on the outer bolster on the driver's side, which is pretty much inevitable, but the seating surfaces are in very good shape and there are no splits or tears in the upholstery. The plush carpets are in very good condition, protected by a set of Porsche-logo floor mats. The dash is laid out in familiar Porsche style, with a big tach in the center and all the other clear, round instruments on either side. The 993 was a big step forward in terms of ergonomics, so all the controls are right where you'd expect them to be and operation is at least a little intuitive, unlike many of its forebears. Power windows and seats, cruise control, A/C, and a later Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system are included, making this a Porsche that's a joy to drive even in traffic, and everything works as it should. The snug-fitting cloth top was installed a year ago and disappears with the touch of a button for instant fresh air and preserves the car's handsome good looks top up or top down.
The last of the air-cooled 911s offered 3.6 liters of displacement and that familiar flat-six howl. Completely stock and properly maintained from new, this low-mile 911 runs superbly and thanks to their known reliability, should continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The 6-speed gearbox slips through the gears with more precision than any previous 911 and the very user-friendly suspension almost completely tames the 911's famous tail-happy antics. Always famous for massive binders, the cross-drilled and vented disc brakes on this car will detach your retinas if you're not careful and a quick glance underneath reveals that this car was never used in anything but pleasant weather. Beautiful 18-inch alloys emulate those found on the Turbo model and wear 225/40/18 front and 265/35/18 rear Dunlop radials.
Few other "used" cars have held their values as well as the 993, and if you're looking for a high-quality, low-mileage convertible with all the right equipment, you'll scarcely do better than this. Call today!
