This 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe has been modified with safari-style equipment including Braid 16″ wheels, all-terrain tires, BBI Autosport JRZ safari long-travel coilovers, and additional suspension revisions along with fabricated front and rear bumpers with integrated skid plates. The car wears an olive green wrap and is powered by a 3.6-liter flat-six paired with a six-speed manual transaxle. Additional equipment includes Sparco racing seats trimmed in black leather with houndstooth inserts and racing harnesses as well as a bolt-in harness bar, a hydraulic handbrake, a speed-activated rear spoiler, a sunroof, cruise control, and air conditioning. The selling dealer acquired the car in 2021 after being registered in California since 2001. This safari-style 993 Carrera coupe is offered with the manufacturer’s literature, a Carfax report, and a clean California title.
The car was factory-finished in Ocean Blue Metallic (L3AZ) and wears an olive green wrap. Details include fabricated front and rear bumpers with integrated skid plates along with headlight washers, power-adjustable mirrors, a speed-activated rear spoiler, a sunroof, black side-mirror housings, and dual exhaust outlets. The Carfax report lists an accident in a May 1999 entry resulting in damage to the rear of the vehicle, and the selling dealer states the right rear fender was refinished.
Black-finished Braid 16″ wheels are mounted with 215/70 Yokohama Geolander A/T tires. The suspension has been modified by BBI Autosport with custom-built JRZ long-travel adjustable coilovers along with revised control arms, links, and monoball bearings. Suspension adjustment mechanisms are mounted in the rear of the cabin. The seller reports the brake rotors and pads were replaced when the suspension was modified in May 2022.
Recaro Pole Position seats are trimmed in black leather with houndstooth inserts and feature a Porsche crest debossed in the headrest. A bolt-in harness bar has been installed in place of the rear seats and is fitted with Sparco six-point harnesses. Additional equipment includes a hydraulic handbrake, air conditioning, power windows, and a wood shift knob.
The Sparco steering wheel features a yellow center stripe and frames VDO instrumentation including a central tachometer, a 180-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and gauges for fuel level and oil pressure, temperature, and level. The six-digit odometer shows 124k miles, approximately 2k of which were added by the selling dealer.
The air-cooled 3.6L M64 flat-six features a VarioRam intake system and was factory rated at 282 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. An oil change was performed in preparation for the sale, and the selling dealer states a belt service was performed in August 2022 and the fuel pump relay and distributor caps were replaced in March 2023. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transaxle. The car last passed a California emissions test in July 2022.
The manufacturer’s literature is included in the sale along with a tire-inflator kit. A photo of the options code sticker can be seen in the gallery.
The Carfax report shows the aforementioned accident reported in May 1999 along with history in Florida, Pennsylvania, and California.
