This 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo Coupe is one if just 641 examples built for the US Market, and the last of the air-cooled Turbo cars.
Purchased new at Porsche Cincinnati in October of 1996. This gentleman would go on to own this car until August of 2020 when his long-time-coming knee surgery would finally force a trade for a brand new PDK equipped Porsche Turbo. Showing just over 37,700 miles this stunning 993 Turbo is ready for her next long-term care taker.
Powered by numbers-matching 3.6 Liter engine and 6-speed manual transmission.
Painted in PTS Midnight Blue Metallic (L999 on option sticker as it was not an available color for 1997) over Classic Gray Leather interior. This example benefits from a recent service of fluid change, new Continental tires, brand new Bilstein Shocks, new brake rotors, 4 wheel alignment, and undercarriage detail with close attention paid to keep factory Cosmoline. Equipped with Factory Sunroof, cold A/C, Turbo Twist Wheels, and heated L/R Front Seats, owners books, tools, spare tire and pump. A very thorough PPI was done by RennHaus of Sarasota, FL in Sept. 2021. Compression test was an even 150 PSI in each cylinder. New spark plugs were installed as well as a comprehensive driving test, interior functionality and underside inspection. The car passed with flying colors and was given a wonderful bill of health. Please contact us and we will be happy to provide the PPI, underside photos, compression test results, paint meter readings etc.
Paint meter indicates original 3.8-5Mils all around except for passenger rear fender which reads 6.5-7. No indication of damage and matches beautifully with no paint lines. Front bumper and hood have minor chips from being driven and all original paint on bumper and hood. The Turbo Twist wheels are in excellent condition with very minor chips on a couple edges. The CarFax is clean and shows no accident history. The mileage shows as exempt as the odometer was rebuilt due to the fact of the owner hitting the trip reset button while the car was in motion and stripped the gears. The indicated mileage of 37,700 is correct. The car runs and drives beautifully. We have put on around 200+ miles and the car performs flawlessly. The A/C blows cold, the original radio works great, the power seats, windows and sunroof all operate properly. This 993 Turbo is ready for the next open road and can be seen in our showroom in Osprey, FL. Please contact us with any questions and we'll be happy to help.
