West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this rare 1997 911 993 rare Targa coupe with six speed manual transmission and boating the 3.6L air-cooled engine in the beautiful and highly desirable color combination of special original factory order 'Ocean Blue Metallic' (L3AZ) exterior color paint with striking and also special factory ordered 'Cashmere & Black' (LC) leather seat interior with matching Porsche 'Targa' floor mats and also with rare factory options including;
Motor Sound Package Radio Comfort Seats Left & Right Wheel rim caps with Porsche crest ($224) Hi-Fi Sound System ($930) Remote CD Changer (6 disc) Equipped with catalytic convertor Dark Rootwood Steering Wheel Dark Rootwood Parking Brake Lever Dark Rootwood Gear Shift Knob
The car also boasts automatic speed control, power windows & side mirrors, heated mirrors, power steering, filtered A/C and heating with climate control, remote central locking alarm system, extendable rear spolier, solid glass power sunroof, 2+2 seating, and front airbags.
This is a very rare 993 Targa coupe with the power retractable headliner and solid glass Targa roof, debuted by Porsche in 1996 and with the solid glass roof retracting underneath the rear window revealing a very large opening, the latest incarnation of the earlier manually removable Targa roof and with this modern version lowered at the touch of a button. The 993 Targa roof was a revolutionary design which allowed the 993 Targa to retain the same profile of the other 993 models and without the inconvenience of having to store the top as in the previous Targa bodystyles. Either drive with the retractable headliner shielding you from the sun with the roof closed, retracted the headliner for the natural light of the glass roof overhead or lower the few square feet of glass completely at any speed by activating the rocker switch for the rush of air over your head and the feel of the open road! An extraordinary experience! Only 1,276 US models were imported in 1997 out of a total production run (1996-98) of only 4,619 cars.
To be sold with with original owners manuals, factory tools, air compressor are included in the sale of the car. The cars original spare wheel is intact and unused. Obviously an always garaged car with no history of any accidents and with a clean Carfax report and owned by only obviously very careful and meticulous mature drivers since new.
The original and rarely ordered factory 'Ocean Blue Metallic' color paint is in absolutely beautiful condition with virtually none of the typical and unavoidable freeway chips and pits associated with these low riding sports cars! The beautiful comfort seats and full supple leather is also in beautiful condition with virtually no signs of any wear.
The car drives exactly like a well maintained and serviced 993 with only 77K original miles should and must be driven to be fully appreciated and seen to be believed! The engine is extremely strong with no noticeable oil leaks, the clutch has a very smooth transmission shift and the temperature always remains cool.
You will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this exceptionally clean and increasingly collectible 993 Targa, one of the last of the highly desirable air cooled engine 911's, and one of only 1,276 US models in the sporty 2 door Targa roof body-style for the ultimate exhilarating open top driving experience with 6 speed manual transmission in this most striking, rare and desirable of color combination's anywhere else!
