We are pleased to present this 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera S finished in Black over a black leather interior. Acquired by the seller in 2018, this 993 C2S was treated to a no expense spared custom rebuild over the course of four years including a full glass-out repaint in its original color, an upgraded Rothsport 4.0L engine, custom 6-speed manual RS transmission, full ERP suspension package with OEM RS components, and an RS-style interior with genuine Sport Seats in Nappa leather. Inspired by the modern 911R, this Carrera S was built to be the ultimate naturally aspirated 993 utilizing as many original Carrera RS parts as possible while upgrading the motor with updated Mezger internals. Totaling over $230k in upgrades, every aspect of this project was specified to the highest standard in collaboration with Rothsport and Rstrada. With less than 100 miles on the newly built motor and transmission, this remarkable Carrera S is being offered for auction by its owner out of California.
The exterior of this 993 was recently refinished in its original color of Black (741) along with the installation of a new OEM windshield and rubber seals. The front and rear bumperettes were deleted, the door checks were repaired, and the car was fitted with Turbo S fog lights, European amber front and rear corner lights, and a new center reflector. The seller describes the paint to be in like-new condition, detailed photos are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. Factory features include the wide fenders and bumper design of the Turbo model along with a unique split-grille rear decklid. The Turbo-spec brake calipers have been custom finished in Speed Yellow and the car rides on a set of three-piece 18” Tramont Cup Speedline-style wheels mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Inside, this 993 features a black interior with hardback Sport Seats custom reupholstered in Nappa leather. The rear seats have been deleted and the door panels are replaced with Rstrada RXX RS-style door cards with yellow pull loops. The black and yellow motif continues with OEM yellow seat belts and custom Lloyd floor mats in black with yellow piping. A three-spoke Carrera RS steering wheel has been fitted as well as an RS shift knob, an aluminum Porsche Sport emergency brake handle, and a black Rennline pedal set. The original radio has been swapped for a Continental TR741UB-OR unit with Bluetooth connectivity paired with Focal component speakers in the door panels. This 993 also retains air conditioning with a custom installation from Rstrada.
The original 3.6L flat-six Varioram engine was replaced in favor of an upgraded 4.0L unit built and tuned by Rothsport, featuring custom pistons and cylinders, Carillo connecting rods, Rothsport X-treme cylinder heads with stainless steel valves, Elgin springs and titanium retainers, Rothsport high-lift camshafts, and a custom Rothsport MoTeC ECU with coil on plug ignition. Many original Porsche components were used in the engine's construction, including a 997 GT3 RS 4.0 crankshaft and engine bearings, a GT3 oil pump, GT3 intake plenum ceramic coated by Rstrada, OEM mechanical lifters, and a 993 Carrera RS pulley and motor mounts. The custom exhaust system includes Cargraphic headers paired with an X-pipe and finished with OEM Turbo exhaust tips. The engine was assembled using ARP hardware and has been tuned for an output up to 400 HP and 327 lb.-ft of torque with a 7800-RPM redline. The seller notes more power can be extracted from this engine using a GT3 center exhaust setup. The rear wheels are driven by a Rothsport-built custom RS G50/30 6-speed manual transmission, which has been completely overhauled by replacing gears 1-5 with OEM Carrera RS gears and new synchros while retaining the original 6th gear. It also features a Porsche Cup lightweight flywheel, a Carrera RS clutch, RS mounts, and an FD Motorsports short shift kit with the Golden Rod selector shaft.
The suspension of this Carrera S has also received a major upgrade, utilizing the ERP total package with JRZ RS adjustable coilovers specified by Rstrada and tuned by Rothsport as found in the custom Guntherwerks 911. The ERP package also provides monoball bushings, new front and rear control arms, adjustable rear camber and toe links, adjustable kinematic arms, and solid rear subframe mounts. As with the engine, several OEM Carrera RS parts were fitted in the suspension including the front and rear sway bars, front-wheel uprights, tie rods, drop links, and the front strut brace. The ride height has been adjusted to factory Carrera RS specifications.
This sale will include a clean title, owner’s books, and documentation cataloging the build. Reimagined as the ultimate naturally aspirated 993, this painstakingly custom-built Carrera S offers a great opportunity for its next owner.
