Notes

1997 Porsche 911 993 Twin Turbo Coupe For Sale 3.6 litre twin turbo flat six-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission. This is a preservation class example that remains completely original and unmodified. The original Midnight Blue Metallic (Paint to Sample) finish is in very good condition with only a few touched up scratches (left front of fascia and right rear wheel well lip). Some normal scuffing on the bottom of the front fascia as well. Paint meter readings are between 4 and 5.5 thousandths of an inch throughout the car. The body is in excellent rust and damage free condition. Only one small ding with a scuff is present at the rear of the driver's side fender. Factory sunroof equipped. The grey leather interior is in excellent condition outside of some entry scuffs on the switch surround on the driver's seat. Clean Carfax. Original numbers matching engine and transmission. A new clutch has been recently installed and it has only seen 20 miles of use. The engine was resealed at the same time as was the power steering system. This car was sold new in Washington State. It was imported into Canada in 2009. Current family has owned it since 2010. US emissions compliant. This is shown on the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and the original compliance decal is still present on the door pillar. The CarFax also records its importation into Canada with a specific case number. Has two good working key fobs for the DriveBlock system. Issues of note; Unfortunately the air conditioning system is not currently working. This is a recent development. The rear tires are well worn and require replacement. The original owner's manual package is no longer with the car. We do have the DriveBlock and radio codes. A rare oppourtunity to buy a prservation class Paint to Sample 993 TT.

After 9 years of ownership, here's what I conclude. (1)Annual inspections by a competent 911 technician are very important for spotting oil leaks, etc., in the early stages. (2)Avoid cars that have been tracked or modified...these can be a money pit for subsequent owners. Otherwise, the type 993s represent the best sports car for the dollar available.
