Rare opportunity to experience a “like new” Porsche 993
The last of the air-cooled Porsche 911s, the 993 is the final evolution of the storied air-cooled lineage from Porsche. The 993 boasts all of the innovations and refinement that Porsche learned from building the 911 for 30+ years, creating a simple yet distilled package of excellent driving dynamics, everyday comfort and accessible performance. The Carrera retains the purity of the original 911 with only rear wheel drive and a 6-speed manual transmission. With an incredible amount of mechanical grip and a direct driving experience with enough power to get into trouble with, the 993 Carrera is a fantastic performer in all conditions.
This 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera was originally purchased and shipped to Pray Porsche of Greenwich, Connecticut. Heavily optioned from the factory, the Carrera received a number of popular (and expensive) upgrades: Slate Grey Metallic paint, Grey Interior Leather Seats, Porsche Floor Mat – Classic Grey, Torque Limited Slip Differential with ABD, Heated Front Seat Package, Power Seat Package, Digital Sound Package/Hi-Fi Sound, AM/FM Radio Cassette Player, Painted rims in exterior color, Rim Caps with Porsche Crest, Factory Deletion of Rear Model Designation, Lumbar Support Drivers Seat, Remote “CD” Changer (6 Disc), and Supple Leather Front and Rear. Altogether, the MSRP for the Slate Grey Carrera was $71,535, of that was over $10,000 in options!
This Porsche 911 Carrera is a remarkable preservation and survivor example, being over 25 years old with the car only covering 2,839 miles since it was delivered. Every part of the car from the factory finishes, mechanical pieces, to the factory materials feel as if they are new.
The first owner of the Carrera purchased the car in Connecticut where the car would remain for close to 18 years. The car brought to Porsche of Fairfield, Connecticut in 2003 and was offered for sale at the same dealerships almost a decade later in 2013. Remarkably, by the time the car was offered for sale for the first time it had only amassed a paltry 1,692 miles. In 2016 the Carrera moved to Colorado where it spent approximately 3 years, during that time receiving service work from Porsche of Colorado Springs. The most recent owner purchased the car in June of 2019, where the Slate Grey Carrera came to Canepa in early 2020.
The term “time capsule” is a term to describe something that seems as though it has been perfectly preserved. In the case of this 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera, that term doesn’t describe enough about the level of quality that it retains from the factory. With only 2,839 original miles on the odometer over the past 25 years, every surface finish, material, and component look as though they were just assembled by the capable hands of Stuttgart. Sitting inside the cabin for just a few minutes, the wafting scent of new leather still lingers and the leather feels like it was freshly wrapped on every surface. Controls click and move in the way that only new parts do, in this case just from the absence of someone constantly using it. The transmission shifts effortlessly and slots into each gear with ease, and even the doors close with no discernable effort. This is as close as you can get to buying a new factory-delivered 993 Carrera.
Canepa performed a minor concours-level detailing to the car with some light foam-pad polishing to enhance the Slate Grey metallic paint finish, but a car such as this needed very little. The ability to enjoy and experience something in an undiluted and unmodified way is a rare occurrence in this day and age. Being able to get into a Porsche 911 after 25 years and feel and smell how the car would have been delivered to its first owner from the showroom is a priceless and memorable event that many will never get to truly enjoy. Now is the opportunity to take a trip back and time to 1995 and experience an as-new Porsche 911.
