1995 Porsche 993 Coupe



1995 993 C2 Coupe- 68k miles

 

If you have ever wondered what I personally drive, here is my personal car! I have moved along to another 993 so it is with a touch of seller's remorse that I list my 993 for sale. I have set the car up to my taste and have enjoyed the past two years as custodian of this fine car. Here is the story:

The suspension setup alone was $9000 in parts, $2500 in labor and $700 in alignment or $12,200! The suspension setup was purchased from Steve Weiner at Rennsport Systems based entirely on his recommendations.

 

Mechanical:

The car runs and drives absolutely spectacular. It does everything it is supposed to and nothing its not. Everything works (AC blows cold, all the electrical accessories, cruise, no warning lights on, etc.). It has no leaks. It is current on all services. I have a complete service history on the car, if there is something in particular you would like to know just ask.

 

In preparation for sale I addressed all the current needs so it would be 100% ready to go, they were:

  • Installed new front and rear hood shocks
  • Installed a new drivers door rubber gasket (they always tear where people drag their feet across.
  • Annual service w/ oil and filter

 

Wheels and Tires:

OEM 18" BBS 986/996 2 piece Sport Classic wheels- 18x7.5 and 18x10

Michelin Pilot PS2 225/40/18 and 265/35/18 ~70-%

 

Misc-

 

I have all the original books and manuals

2 keys

Very complete documentation of all mods and upgrades, service, etc in a 3 ring binder

Correct airpump, toolkit and jack.

Just received an annual service 4/2013 so current on everything.

 

Flaws:

Its not an all original, no paintwork kind of car. I believe it has had paintwork at some point in several places. I don't think it has ever been in any kind of accident. None of this is visually apparent but I have run a paint meter on the car, it never lies!

 

Its been to the track 8-10 times for DE events so it has an amount of rock chips, sandblast, etc. All touched up but there. I am a fanatic so it is very well polished, no swirls, I get lots of compliments!

 

There is a small rust bubble at the base of the drivers windshield (very common on 964 and 993) about the size of a dime. It has not changed a bit since I owned it but the windshield is somewhat sandblasted and the gasket could stand to be replaced. So the best course of action would be to pull the windshield, fix the rust spot and install a new windshield and gasket.

 

The super cup exhaust is loud, I think it sounds amazing but it does have a strong resonance at about 26-2900 rpm. It is fine if you are passing through that rpm but constant cruise at that speed is VERY irritating! I believe air-cooled cars should always cruise above 3k so it doesn't bother me.

 

The Suspension is amazing and the car sticks like nobodies business but there are two drawbacks: The car has mono balls and solid bushings so it does have some creaks and groans at low speeds on crummy roads. It is also set up fairly stiff, so if you are looking for Cadillac ride quality this isn’t your car.

 

Overall:

Body and Paint 8.5/10

Interior 9.5/10

Suspension and Drivetrain- 10/10

Mechanical 9.5/10

Documentation 9.5/10

 

I would love to find this car a loving home, if this sounds like your type of car let me know!
