We recently acquired a beautiful well maintained 1996 Porsche 993 which is now on consignment at our shop. It’s a 3-owner car in Arena Red Metallic with classic grey-partial leather interior. Porsche developed the 993 to replace the 964 who’s production ended in December of 1993 with 993 production starting January 1994. Engine improvements were introduced in 1996 with Varioram which was first developed for the 993 Carrera RS’s M64/20 engine to improve low/mid range torque. This is the last of the air cooled Porsches and the 993’s engine can be seen as a culmination of the technological advancement by Porsche during those past 33 years.
This is a very nicely optioned Carrera. Leaving the factory with the following; Arena Red Metallic, Classic Grey-Partial Leather, Porsche Floor Mat-Classic Grey, AM/FM Radio with CD Player, Torque Limited Slip with ABD, 18” Wheels w/Technology Rims, Rear Window Wiper, Rim Caps (4) with Porsche Crest.
The first owner purchased the car from Ramsay Pontiac Corp. in Urbandale, Iowa in 1996. In 1998 the car was sold to the second owner, Timothy Robison who brought the car to Arizona where it has resided for nearly 20 years. Last year the car was purchased by the third owner, Franco Brown. Franco bought the car in Arizona and had it shipped to California where he has enjoyed it for the past 7 months. He put 3,000 miles on the car and has maintained it meticulously (backed up by a stack of paperwork). The car currently has 90k miles on the odometer.
Collectively, all three owners have taken the time and money to maintain the car meticulously. The previous owner had the engine rebuilt at 54k miles including valve guides, piston rings, new clutch, starter etc. The current owner enlisted the help of Auto Strasse in Costa Mesa which has been in charge of maintenance and the original PPI the owner had performed on the car. Detailed service records of the maintenance performed by current and previous owners will be included with the purchase of the car. Maintenance records go as far back as 1998, we even have the original window sticker from when it was sold.
The current owner had the front and rear bumpers repainted by East Auto Body, a well respected paint shop in Orange County. The rest of the paint is all original and looks fantastic. Currently, there is no radio installed but the original will be included. The 18” wheels have been refinished and look amazing with the black Porsche calipers poking through. The interior is nearly immaculate with only minor wear, all buttons switches, cruise control, horn etc. work great! A Fister muffler set was installed and gives the car a slightly more pronounced flat-six thrum. The power feels great from the 3.6L twin plug engine. Mechanically and cosmetically, we cannot emphasize enough how well maintained this car is. The car runs/drives like a dream and is ready to be driven.
