Default How many 993's left?

I read that Porsche produced approx. 78,000 993's throughout its lifespan. Does anyone have any idea how many are still "alive" today worldwide? How about in the US?

Anyone know how many valuable 993's were produced? (C2 coupes, I mean.)

According to some of the hundreds of "for sale" ads I've seen for 993 coupes, these are VERY rare.

I'd like to know how many of the 993 Polar Silver C4 Cabs were produced which everybody knows is the fastest version.

I wonder how many people were duped into believing the Polar Silver ones were fastest?

Poor souls...

Funny, I've found the same thing. There are more cabs out there than you can shake a stick at, and almost as many C4's. But C2 coupes? Fairly hard to come by. I still feel lucky that I found a good one.

Just kidding dude, I see what you got there. Though I think you'd have to wait till springtime to be able to use it in NYC.
