Chassis no. WP0ZZZ99ZSS338509. Black with maroon top over black. 3.6-liter M64 engine, RUF gearbox with no clutch pedal, car phone, carbon fiber steering wheel, dash, shifter, handbrake, and door cards.

Evaluation: Located in Switzerland. Represented as one of just fourteen 993 Turbo Cabriolets built and represented as special ordered by Willi Weber, Michael Schumacher’s manager. Special features include ample carbon-fiber trim and the RUF-sourced gearbox sans clutch pedal.

No major flaws in the paint, but it does show some age. Scuff on the outer driver’s seat bolster and light wear on some interior surfaces, but nothing out of the ordinary for a 26-year-old car showing 33,475 km (20,800 mi).

Bottom Line: This is a massive price for any 993, but Porsche collectors prove time and time again that special order features can add up to serious coin, and this car’s rare body style is an added draw. RM Sotheby’s sold it in 2018 for €680,000 ($835,108 at the time, this result is €640,400 all-in), which backs up this result in 2021.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
