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.

Finished in Ocean Blue Metallic, this car features 17-inch Cup 2 wheels and a complete new hood, which is electrically operated and incorporates a wind-deflector. The interior boasts grey leather hard-backed Sports seats and complementing blue dashboard and door panels.

With just 76,100 miles on the clock, this Porsche is in refreshingly original and good condition, inside and out, and drives beautifully. Options include air-conditioning, heated door mirrors, remote central locking with immobiliser, central brake light and a sought-after Becker Grand Prix radio and CD player with Bluetooth phone connectivity.

The Porsche has a well-documented history and has just been serviced. The cherished numberplate ‘VFN83’ is included in the sale.

Each car we sell goes through a thorough independent 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. In the unlikely event you have a problem, we include 12 month’ MoT (without advisories) and a six-month warranty unwritten by us, which means that we will look after you.

Philip Raby says: “The combination of the classic 993 with open-top roof makes this Porsche a winning combination for fun driving all year round. The investment in the car’s mechanics makes it a joy to drive.”
