1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 4 Cabriolet


This Porsche 993 Carrera 4 Cabriolet is a rare 1997 car, which means it’s one of the last-ever air-cooled 911s, before the all-new 996 replaced it. It’s also got the later Varioram engine, which produces 285bhp. It’s a car we’ve sold before, so it’s great to have it back in stock.

Finished in Ocean Blue Metallic, this car features 18-inch genuine hollow-spoke Turbo twist wheels and a complete new hood, which is electrically operated and incorporates a wind-deflector. The interior boasts grey leather hard-backed Sports seats, which are very comfortable and supportive.

The Porsche has a well-documented service history and had had a lot of money invested in it in recent years. There was a major service in September 2018 and included in that were new HT leads, new cam cover masters, new distributor caps and more – all at a cost of some £2500. At the same time, some minor rust around the windscreen was attended to and a new screen fitted – another £3300 invested. We shall service it again before sale. A new alternator, plus a new set of Michelin PilotSport tyres have just been fitted this year and have covered just 500 miles.

If you are unable to get to us, please get in touch as we offer a remote buying service. We can first make a personalised video or organise a conference call to show you around one of our cars and covering all aspects you want to see. We can even take the car for a drive as you watch. If you like the car, you pay for it and we shall deliver it to you free of charge (within 100 miles of our Chichester base, further distances charged at cost). We are based on the south coast of England, nestled between the South Downs and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a lovely area to visit and you are still very welcome to come and view our stock or just have a chat about cars!

Philip Raby Specialist Cars is refreshingly different. We like to build a friendly relationship with customers; before, during and after you buy from us. You won’t get a hard sell but you will get friendly and professional advice to ensure that we find exactly the right car for you. We have sold hundreds of Porsches and other specialist cars and have a vast experience to share with you.

Each car we sell goes through a thorough mechanical inspection and any faults found put right before sale. This ensures that your new car is ready for you to enjoy from day one, without you having to worry about a thing. In the unlikely event you have a problem, we include a six-month warranty underwritten by us. We stand by this warranty so, if you have any issue with your Porsche, wherever you are in the UK, we will work with you to put things right, without any quibble or fuss. So do please get in touch for a chat and to arrange a visit or a live video. Part exchange and finance available – please click the Finance button below for details.
