The year 1998 marked the last year of the 993 air-cooled Porsche
911 model. With only 1,201 cabriolets being built, they remain
highly sought-after and are becoming harder to find. The 993 was
much improved over, and quite different from its predecessor.
According to Porsche, every part of the car was designed from the
ground up, and only 20 percent of its parts were carried over. A
major change was the implementation of an all-alloy multi-link rear
suspension attached to an alloy subframe. Other improvements
included a new dual-flow exhaust system, larger brakes with drilled
discs and a revised power steering. This 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera
cabriolet is finished in Classic Black with a black leather
interior and black power top. It is powered by the 282hp air-cooled
3.6-liter flat-6 engine mated to a 4-speed Tiptronic transmission
and limited-slip differential. It is equipped with many factory
options, including air conditioning, aluminum gauges, 8-way
electric power seats, power windows, power door locks, cruise
control, automatic rear air control activator and power top. It
rides on new 225/408/18 tires in the front and 285/35/18 Z-rated
Michelin tires in the rear. The sound system has been upgraded to a
remote-controlled Eclipse in-dash deck and 12-disc changer, with a
Rockford Fosgate P4004 amp and Punch speaker system. The engine was
recently completely rebuilt and upgraded by Frank's Automotive, the
premier Porsche repair shop for over 50 years. A copy of the
service and repair invoices along with the original owner's manuals
are included. The glass, mirrors, dash, carpet and leather seats
are in good condition. The hood and front bumper were refinished in
2010 to remove rock chips and the rear bumper was refinished in
2012 to remove shopping cart scratches. Both repairs were less than
$1,000 and done at the body shop. The repair invoices are included.
