THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This stunning 993 comes from the final year of production of air-cooled Porsches. One of fewer than 1,300 993 Cabriolets completed in that final year—along side the new 996s in fact—the car was finished in July of 1997 as a model year 1998 and sold new by Brumos Porsche in Jacksonville, Florida in January of 1998 to Walter Jewett, a Connecticut resident who purchased the car as a stopgap while waiting for his 911 Turbo to be completed. Finished in Arctic Silver Metallic—a $1,036 option—over a Classic Grey partial leather interior, besides the optional color the car was delivered with the Motor Sound Package, 18" Cup Design wheels with Porsche crested rim caps, full power driver's seat, an onboard computer, nearly $1000 in Exclusive Options, and a unique rear seat delete package that replaced the back seats with additional storage.

Keeping the car only briefly, the present owner acquired the car from Mr. Jewett through Porsche of Fairfield on August 18, 2000 with 2,375 miles on the clock. A meticulous custodian, this 911 has been sparingly driven, regularly maintained, and carefully garaged in the ensuing nearly two decades of ownership. Serviced since 2000 at Porsche of Fairfield, receipts on file show regular care that reflects an aircraft-like schedule of timed maintenance visits. Besides a few minor and entirely reversible modifications, the car is entirely as produced in Stuttgart. In a nod to modernity and improvement of performance, the original head unit and speakers were upgraded—but the stock speaker covers were maintained and the original head unit will accompany the car. Similarly, the stock exhaust system has been replaced with a FAB-Speed unit—but again the original equipment accompanies the car. Finally, the faces of the gauges were replaced with OEM Turbo Silver faces by Porsche of Fairfield—and as with everything else, the original black gauge faces have been retained.

Today the car shows virtually as new and with a mere 11,200 miles on the odometer. When inspected by a Bonhams specialist, the car was found to read evenly across all surfaces when checked with a paint meter. Even the nose, often chipped from rocks, shows beautifully having been covered by a Porsche bra for most of its life (the bra is of course included with the sale). Replete with its original books, manuals, tools, jack, tire inflation pump; plus all of the aforementioned original parts (head unit, exhaust, gauge faces), both sets of keys and remotes, a copy of the original window sticker and a massive heap of receipts documenting its service history virtually since new, this stunning final-year 993 Cabriolet is surely one of the nicest examples out there.

With low mileage, two careful owners from new, and a documented life of pampering, this 993 is well worth extra consideration.
