1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet – $35,000 RNM

January 9, 2022 Update – After consulting with the seller, he’s taken our recommendation to hold off trying to sell his 911 Cabrio until the spring when the weather turns warmer and more bidders will be in the market for a 911 Cabrio. Please check back in the middle of March.

December 7, 2021 Update – GuysWithRides.com is honored to feature this 81,996K original mile, 1995 Porsche 911 Carerra Cabriolet in a reserve-style online auction on behalf of the private seller.

Bidding is now open and will continue for 14 consecutive days ending at 7:30 pm Wednesday, December 8, 2021, Eastern time.

This Porsche 911 currently resides in New Hope, Pennsylvania, approximately one hour’s drive from either Philadelphia or Newark International airports.

You wouldn’t know it from the brand’s current success, but by the mid-1990s Porsche was in financial trouble.  An aging product line, a strong German mark, and a growing crop of highly capable Japanese performance cars conspired to hurt the brand’s sales. By 1995, Porsche managed to sell only 3,718 911 cabriolets in North America.

Most enthusiasts did not appreciate it at the time, but the 993 911 is now considered the best and final iteration of the air-cooled 911. With only twenty percent of the previous 964 generation’s parts carried over, the 993’s combination of an all-new multi-link Weissach-axle rear suspension, VarioRam induction, and six-speed manual continue to make this generation of 911 highly desirable.

It’s refreshing to come across a driver-quality, nicely maintained 993 example versus the typical low-mileage examples that collectors continue to keep stuffed away.  This black-over-tan 1995 911 Carrera Cabriolet has 81,996K original miles, most of which have been added by the second and current owner dating back to 2001. This is a well-maintained, driver-quality 993 911 that the next caretaker can take to the next level that will easily recoup every dollar of their investment getting it there.

While a very good, mechanically maintained driver-quality example, it will take a thorough detailing and polishing to bring the paint up to Concours-level judging.  Additionally, the desirable split rims will need refinishing before judging. The private seller also notes the current aftermarket radio does not work reliably.

    Was this vehicle all RE sprayed or only the parts that were involved in an accident, do you have any information on what was damaged due to the accident and were the repairs done by Porsche dealer or some other body shop? Thanks

      We are going over to the car this morning to photograph the odometer and confirm the latest mileage. The current owner has replaced the clutch twice since he bought the car. The first time was shortly after he bought the car in 2001 with approximately 55K on the clock. The clutch has been replaced a second time since then but he can’t recall when or how many miles. We will take more pictures in and under the frunk to document the accident listed on the CarFax was minor in nature.

      A top-end rebuild and reseal was completed a few years ago but the owner cannot recall exactly when or how many miles. As the CarFax indicates, most of the service on this car was completed at what was Holbert’s Porsche (as in Al Holbert) which is now known as Porsche Warrington.

      After speaking with the seller, he’s elected to hold off selling his 911 Cabrio until the spring when the weather turns warmer and more buyers will be looking for a convertible.
