1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
Porsche 911 enthusiasts and casual car fans alike know the 993 is the ONE - the last of the air-cooled 911s, the final iteration of the original masterpiece from Stuttgart. This particular 1997 Carrera targa is a winner in every way, from the great color combination to the super low miles, and if you were thinking that it was time to get a new Porsche, youd be hard-pressed to find a cooler one than this. br / brbr br / Theres no doubt this is a 911, from the headlights to the subtly curved rear end, theres sports car DNA in this Targa that stretches back two generations. The 993 was highly refined but lost none of the proportions that made the 911 so special, and Porsche engineers were careful to keep the essence intact while adding performance, comfort, and confidence. The Arctic Silver Metallic paint accents the Teutonic shape perfectly, neither flashy nor invisible, knowing that this car needs no extra flash. Fit and finish are to typically excellent Porsche standards, and with just 31,845 original miles, it has obviously been a special car from the day it came home. The paint shines up beautifully, and while there are a few incredibly small signs of use (and you really have to look close to find them), it certainly doesnt look the better part of 23 years old. In fact, a nice wax and polish and this Porsche will look very close to how it did the day it left the showroom floor. Of course, some of that is due to the timeless design, but theres also no question that this car has been expertly maintained. Further expanding on that awesome design is the Targa roof, which is only called a targa out of respect to the days of old. A killer panoramic sunroof takes its place in this 993 and it really adds a slick and practical touch to the cars design. And speaking of slick and practical touches, the speed-activated rear spoiler has both in droves. br / brbr br / Supportive leather bucket seats in gray give the interior a serious look that shows off the minimalist design. Theres practically zero wear on the seats that have been lightly acquired through the years, showing only wrinkling thats expected over time, but the seating surfaces are in overall excellent shape and there are no splits or tears in the upholstery. The plush carpets are in very good condition as well, protected by a set of matching floor mats that were probably designed in wind tunnels to reduce any drag coefficient. The dash is laid out in familiar Porsche style, with a big VDO tach in the center and all the other clear, round VDO instruments on either side. The 993 was a big step forward in terms of ergonomics, so all the controls are right where youd expect them to be and operation is at least a little intuitive, unlike many of its forebears. Power windows, locks, and seats, cruise control, A/C, and even the original stereo system are all included, making this a Porsche thats a joy to drive even in traffic, and everything works thanks to years of careful maintenance. The panoramic Targa roof above is downright fantastic, transforming into a huge sunroof that slides under the rear window with a flick of a switch. And if youre looking to travel, the storage space in both the trunk and boot is ample, both of which are lined with beautiful plush carpets. br / brbr br / The last of the air-cooled 911s offered 3.6 liters of displacement and that familiar flat-six howl. Completely stock and properly maintained from new, this low-mile 911 runs superbly and thanks to their known reliability and its lifetime of careful owners, it should continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The 4-speed Tiptronic transmission slips through the gears with more precision than any previous 911 and the very user-friendly suspension almost completely tames the 911s famous tail-happy antics. Always famous for massive binders, the cross-drilled and vented disc brakes on this car will detach your retinas if youre not careful and a quick glance underneath reveals that this car was never used in anything but pleasant weather. Beautiful 18-inch Fiske wheels look fantastic and wear slightly staggered Sumitomo 225/45/18 front and 265/35/18 rear performance radials with plenty of / brbr br / Few other used cars have held their values as well as the 993, and if youre looking for a high-quality, low-mileage sports car with all the right equipment and plenty of documentation, youll scarcely do better than this.
