We are pleased to offer this 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S finished in Black over a black leather interior. Introduced for the 1996 model year, the Carrera 4S offered the 993 all-wheel-drive system paired with the widened bodywork, brakes, and chassis of the Turbo model. This C4S was first registered in Connecticut before moving to New York in 1998 and eventually California in 2017. It came factory optioned with the Technic Package (P02), Power Seat Package, Exclusive Dark Rootwood interior trim, and the HiFi Sound Package. Now with just under 57k miles showing the odometer, this increasingly sought-after Carrera 4S is being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
This 993 is finished in nonmetallic Black (A1) and shares its wide fenders and bumper design with the Turbo model. The car is said to have been refinished under previous ownership and the lower front spoiler was replaced in 2003. Some minor road-going chips are reported across the front bumper commensurate with the car’s mileage. The seller also notes that the car has undergone a complete professional paint correction in preparation for sale, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This C4S rides on factory 18″ Turbo-look wheels featuring Porsche crests on the center caps and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires showing date codes from 2018.
Inside, you will find a black interior with power-operated leather seats, the HiFi Sound Package, and Exclusive Dark Rootwood trim on the shifter and handbrake lever. The seller reports normal signs of wear on the seating surfaces and describes the original floor mats to show extensive wear around the borders. All gauges and accessories are reported to be fully functional including the original Becker CR-210 radio.
This 993 is equipped with an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six Varioram M64/23 engine that sends up to 282 HP to all four wheels through a 6-speed G64/23 manual transmission with a limited slip differential. The seller states that a Bilstein PSS9 suspension has been installed, and records show that upgraded sway bars were equipped in 2008. Service records also indicate the air injection ports to have been cleaned in 2009, the exhaust replaced in 2005, and that the fuse box replaced in 2003 along with the steering rack, tie rods, and transmission fluid. A recent pre-purchase inspection from Sleeper's Speed Shop is provided for reference in the photo gallery.
This sale will include two keys, a remote fob, the original owner's manual, a toolkit, a spare tire, and a clean title. Easily one of the most sought-after and collectible models of the final air-cooled generation, this well-equipped and beautifully presented Carrera 4S is just waiting for a new caretaker.
