FOR SALE: 1997 Porsche 911
The Porsche 993 was manufactured and sold from late 1993 through early 1998. Like previous and future generations of the Porsche 911, there were several variants of the car manufactured, varying in body style, drive trains, and included equipment. The external design of the Porsche 993, penned by Englishman Tony Hatter, used the basic body shell architecture of the 964, but with changed external panels, with much more flared wheel arches and a smoother front and rear bumper design, an enlarged retractable rear wing, teardrop mirrors, but keeping the doors and roof panels. The Cabriolet, introduced in 1994 for the 1995 model year, features a fully electrical and hand-stitched soft top reinforced with metal sheets and an automatic wind blocker. The \'97 Porsche 911 Cabriolet you see here is a very nice, original car that currently shows only 78,400 miles. Finished in its original color or Arctic Silver with Black Leather interior and black soft top this is one of the most desirable color combinations you will find.
