This spectacular Cabriolet was ordered in India Guardsman Red with
Champagne Leather interior, complete with piped full power seating, and
velour carpet deviated to match the seats! Further optioned with Porsche
16" alloy wheels with crested rim caps, at the time a pricey option, the
Porsche Cellular Phone console with hands-free, and it was portable!
Today of course, the Analog phone is of no use, but see the pics below,
where I use it to cradle my I-Phone 5! The 93 models were standard with
quite a few "earlier year options",like climate control air and
heat,full electrically heatable and adjustable rear view mirrors,fully
tinted glass with graduated tint and hidden windshield antenna, air bags
for driver and passenger, anti-lock braking system with vented rotors
and big calipers, stabilizer bars front and rear, power steering,
central locking system with alarm, cruise control, heated windshield
washer nozzles, and stereo cassette system with 4 speakers.
Of course, the twin plug 3.6 liter engine with 247HP, as well as the
G-50 5-speed transmission, coil-over suspension, and toe-correcting rear
suspension brought this car to a new high level of performance. In
Cabriolet form, they only built 600 of 'em for the USA and Canadian
Considering that the split was about 60% US to 40% CN,and included C-2
and C-4 models with 5-speed and tiptronic, there can't be too many of
these around! Especially as original and fine as this one! With an MSRP
of about seventy nine thousand, its still worth its original price
Number 199, of 600 US & Canadian built, including tiptronics and C-4
cars...Deduct about 35% for Canada, and your guess is as good as mine
for the C-4 and Tips. Maybe around 200 US 5speed C-2 Cabs came to the
USA in 1993! That's much less than the RS America, or the Speedster!
Rated a solid #1 car
Delivered new from the Porsche dealer in Wallingford Ct. The first
owner had it serviced annually by the Porsche dealers in Long Island
thru 2003. Traded back to the Porsche dealer with 20k.miles, It's 2nd.
owner, continued the officious service at the South Hampton dealer thru
2009 when we purchased it with just 30k.miles.
We sold it to a customer from Pittsburgh, who once again continued a
very diligent service routine at Auto Palace, until we traded it again
in 2011 with just 32k.miles! Ironically we sold it to another customer,
also from Pittsburgh, and they continued the service regimen with Auto
Palace. Then, in 2014 with just 34k.miles, and hundreds of coats of wax,
we sold it to a customer in Maryland, who kept it in his collection
until May of this year with 37k.miles. We happily bought it back and
sent it to our local Porsche guru, Heistand Automotive for a full PPI,
Inspection and Emission Certification. At 38k. miles it's ready again for its next
