Some relationships can be exhausting, others painful, but then there are the ones that are extremely satisfying – Some are all three! The kinship one has with a car can be all of these and more. The relationship with this particular 911 and its seller is described as a meaningful one that began only a few short years after it was sold new and has resulted in nearly two decades of enjoyment. Captivated by the 911, the seller purchased this 1995 911 Carrera as his first Porsche with the intentions of keeping it forever. This gentleman (“Woody”) and our Trevor Ely were introduced a few years later and Trevor immediately lusted after Woody’s 993 the moment he laid eyes on it. Beyond the condition of the car, Trevor describes Woody’s appreciation for the car and careful stewardship as admirable and just as impressive. It gave credence to the term ‘heirloom’ that is often associated with older 911 ownership.

Through the years the final air-cooled version of the 911 has aged gracefully, enjoying strong appreciation in the marketplace. None of this concerned the seller who simply enjoyed the car for what it was and appreciated its old-world qualities that were missing in the newer models. Things change over time and Woody’s interest have now shifted to finding a project that he could slowly build and restore, as he explains that he’s simply “…run out of things to do to the 993”.

Assembly of this 1995 Carrera Coupe was completed on Tuesday, May 17th 1994 at Porsche’s Zuffenhausen plant in Stuttgart, Germany. This desirable 1995 model-year 911 was ordered with a sensible equipment level, lacking some of the unusual equipment and combinations offered at the time. Dressed in the classic Guards Red exterior color, the interior contrast sharply with a Cashmere beige, “Supple leather” seating upholstery.

Showing impressively today, this 993 has lived its life in the south since new and is said to wear nearly every square inch of its original, single-stage paint, with only the front bumper being carefully refinished for reasons of normal wear and tear. Now protected with 3M Invisible bra, many of its vulnerable areas are now protected. The condition of the Cashmere beige interior corresponds with the rest of the car, showing hardly any signs of wear. Leather upholstery soft and pliable, carpeted upholstery clean and tight fitting, this 911 even still utilizes its original, Porsche “CR-1” radio that’s so often ditched in favor of aftermarket varieties.

Mechanically, this Carrera coupe has enjoyed a life of continuous attention with a practice of preventative maintenance since its owner first acquired it. With extensive documentation dating back to day one, there are no mysteries with this 993. Maintenance records reveal a steady string of mileage, leaving no blank spots or signs of a broken odometer that’s gone unrepaired.

Our Sports Car Digest private collection currently includes a 1995 Carrera Coupe, and like many, we enjoy its same first-year-only characteristics that include a lack of frustrating anti-theft immobilizer and none of the troublesome emissions equipment that would plague models after 1995.

With opportunities to purchase low mileage, original 993s with a rich, documented history becoming more difficult, this Carrera is a rare opportunity to own one of these cars that’s been carefully preserved over the past 20 years. Even more special is purchasing an automobile that’s been under the care and attention of someone like Woody.
