Up for auction is this 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S finished in Guards Red over a Cashmere Beige and Black partial leather interior. Combining Turbo-derived styling with all-wheel-drive, naturally aspirated performance, this 993 C4S also came factory equipped with optional Sport Suspension (030) as well as the Motor Sound Package which provides for an even more driver-oriented experience. This 993 is now being offered for auction out of the large Porsche collection of its fourth owner in California while showing just over 34k miles on the odometer.
This 993 is finished in the traditional shade of Guards Red and features clear paint protection film over the hood, bumper, and front fenders. A collection of detailed images is provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. The 993 Carrera 4S is desirable for its Turbo-derived styling including wide fenders and revised front and rear bumpers. This example rides on a set of upgraded 18” hollow spoke Turbo wheels which are said to have been mounted with new Continental Sport Contact tires in 2019 within the last 500 miles.
Inside, this 993 features a highly original Cashmere Beige and Black partial leather interior with factory options including an 8-way power-operated driver’s seat, cruise control, an electric sunroof, CR-210 radio, and a 6-disc CD changer. Specially ordered CarBone floormats have been added and only minimal signs of wear have been noted throughout the cabin. The seller also confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional at this time.
Representing the final air-cooled generation, this 993 is equipped with a 3.6L flat-six Varioram that delivers up to 282 HP to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The 4S also shares its larger brakes and suspension setup with the Turbo model. Additionally, this particular example was factory equipped with Sport Suspension (030) which adds shorter, stiffer springs, upgraded anti-roll bars, and harder dampers. Maintenance records are said to be included from previous ownership and the seller reports that a recent service was carried out this year including an oil change and new front sway bar drop links. Images of the underbody are provided in the photo gallery.
This sale will include one master key, the owner’s books, a tool roll, 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 to be enjoyed by its next caretaker.
