Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this extremely low mileage 1997 Porsche 911 (993) Turbo in spectacular condition. The market on the 1996-98 911 Turbos is absolutely hot right now. Very low mileage and original examples of the 993 Turbo difficult to find and draw a huge premium in the current market. This 993 is exceptionally original and correct with its original window sticker, books, and tools. The AutoCheck report on this car is totally clean and shows no accident history. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title showing the mileage as "Actual."

This 911 was sold new at Northland Porsche here in Cincinnati and the car has been local ever since. It has basically had only two owners since new, the first owner changed the title from his personal name into his business name a few times so the AutoCheck shows more owners. However, I have personally known this Porsche since it was owned by its original owner. It is priced to sell and a great value for a 993 Turbo with such low mileage. This 993 has the fewest miles of almost any other example on the market right now.

This 993 Turbo looks outstanding, runs great, and drives amazingly. The car has been recently serviced and this is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Porsche that is ready to be used and enjoyed. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. Also included with the car are the original owners manual, books, tool roll, spare tire and rim, jack, Porsche air compressor, and even the original case for the radio's removable head unit, which are all pictured below. This 911 is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combination of Guards Red (L84A) exterior over Cashmere Leather interior (YA). This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the data sticker and the original window sticker, both pictured below. Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information below to get a true sense of clean and nice this 911 really is.

As a side note, this Porsche is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the 993, just give us a call.

   

 

model description*
 


The 993 is the company's internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998 (model years 1995-1998 in the United States), replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches, with the 993 being the last air-cooled 911. The 993 generation of the 911 is often referred to as the best and most desirable of the 911 series, not only because of its beauty, but also because its performance is very good, even by modern standards, and the 993 was "the last complete 'modern classic'"; "the 993 was and forever will be that last fresh breath of air that Porsche gave the world; elegance and muscle all in one package." The book "Porsche 993 - Essential Companion" refers to the 993 as the "King of Porsche," and it is generally acknowledged as "The purists' Holy Grail."

The 993 was much improved over, and quite different from, its predecessor. Porsche said that every part of its engine was new, and only 20% of its parts were carried over from the previous generation. Porsche itself refers to the 993 as "a significant advance, not just from a technical, but also a visual perspective." Porsche's engineers devised a new light-alloy subframe with coil and wishbone suspension (an all new multi-link system), putting behind the previous lift-off oversteer and making significant progress with the engine and handling, creating a more civilized car with better than ever quality yet one in which the driving experienced remained uncompromised. * From Wikipedia.

Exterior

The Guards Red exterior is in excellent condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a brilliant gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely; it has that solid Porsche touch and feels like a vault door closing. Overall the car exhibits very nice body panel fit. All of the wheels correct and original according to the data sticker with the Steel Gray finish and the correct center caps the gold Porsche crest. They are in great shape have no curb rash, but do have light crazing on the surface. The Pirelli tires have about 90% tread left; they have been replaced once simply due to age, not wear. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.

 

Interior

The Cashmere Leather interior of the 911 looks absolutely fantastic. The seats are in excellent condition with no tears, rips, or split seams. The seat is not overly worn in the typical are on the driver's bolster where the driver gets in and out. The carpet looks terrific with no stains, rips, or holes. All of the gauges faces are crisp and the lenses are clear. The dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The wood trim looks nice overall with no fading, delamination, or cracking. There is very small scuff on the lower left front corner of the driver's seat, which is pictured below. This car has never been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever, obviously no burn marks, and the factory lighter looks brand new and has never been used.

The excellent condition of this all original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this Porsche has received throughout its life.


Mechanical

This 993 Turbo appears to be in excellent mechanical condition. There are some recent maintenance records included with the car. I have personally put over 100 miles on this Porsche and during that time is the completely reliable and a pleasure to drive. The engine starts right away every time, idles smooth, and runs great. It is an exceptional driver that feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts well, runs great, there are no vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The clutch has been recently serviced by the Porsche dealer with a receipt included with the car. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does not overheat. Also, the engine bay is clean, nicely detailed, and correct as one can see from the photos.

Please note in the video that all of the warning lights work properly. They light up when the key is first turned on and then go off when the engine is started. There are no "check engine" or other warning lights that stay on. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, indicators, power windows, power seats, sunroof, etc. All of the gauges work. The original radio works, gets fine reception, and sounds great. The Porsche truly lives up to its reputation as one of the best sports cars of all time and this example is truly a gem and that runs and drives basically like new. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1997 Porsche 911 (993) Turbo is in excellent condition low mileage condition. The market on for the 993 Turbos is still strong right, and this is genuinely one of the best available.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
