19K-Mile 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S 6-Speed

We are pleased to offer this exceptional 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S Coupe finished in black over a black leather interior.  Purchased new from Carlson Porsche in Palo Alto, this low-mileage example has been garage kept and sparingly driven its entire life.  Currently residing in San Jose, CA this C4S has remained in the same family since new and is being offered with extensive documentation and 19k miles showing on the odometer.

The black finish on this Carrera 4S is said to remain fully original and in exceptional condition.  Rest assured knowing that a layer of ceramic coating covers the vehicle’s entire exterior.  From the factory, this 993 highlights a widened body, and 18” alloy wheels which come wrapped in new Michelin Pilot Sport tires.  Offered in an impeccably clean state, this ’97 C4S makes the ideal collector’s car.

The black leather interior of this 911 is stated to be in exceptional all original condition.  Factory options include:  

  • Climate Control w/ Air conditioning
  • Front Seats w/ Power Height Adj
  • Remote Anti Theft w/ Alarm
  • Cassette Radio w/ 6 Speakers
  • Hi Fi Sound/Package 10 Speakers
  • Power/Heated Side Mirrors
  • Automatic Speed Control
  • Power Sunroof & windows

All gauges, electrical components, and accessories are fully functional.

This 993 C4S is powered by its original 3.6 L flat-six engine that puts out over 282 HP to all four wheels by way of a crisp 6-speed manual transmission.  A multi-link rear suspension, front and rear stabilizer bars, and four piston brakes all work together to help create the incredible driving experience this car offers.  The seller has indicated that this car runs beautifully with no complications whatsoever.   A recent PPI was performed which indicated that the car was in excellent running condition. All fluids and filters have recently been replaced prior to listing for auction.  Extensive records will indicate that this Carrera 4S has been well maintained its entire life.

Included in the sale of this 1997 Carrera 4S will be all original books and documentation, two sets of keys, an original window sticker, and extensive service and maintenance records.  Sharing the increased wheelbase and proportions of the Turbo while doling out immediate naturally aspirated power, the 993 Carrera 4S remains one of the most desirable air-cooled 911’s to date.

    Sold for $120,000

    Glad to see this car sold for a fair price. Seller should be happy. Buyer will be thrilled. Great Porsche!

  • VARDA 1 monthago

    @doefinish6 Yeah, I see that - $125K according to IG.

  • doefinish6 1 monthago

    @VARDA The car DID sell.

  • VARDA 1 monthago

    $120K seemed like a decent offer. US$120K converts to approx. CA$157K and that will get you a seriously nice pre-owned Porsche in Canada. Nonetheless, market value is determined at a single point in time by both a buyer and a seller, neither of whom are compelled to either buy or sell.

    @Duke by the looks on how the bidding is going looks like its not leaving the lift inside my garage because the high bid is not near my reserve unless something happens in the last 24min. This car cannot be duplicated for me since I have seen this car since brand new. In order for me to let her go the price has to be right... I have yet to see another 993 4S as complete as mine with ownership and documentation going back since it was driven off the dealership floor.

    Would expect this to go for at least $120,000. Have been watching sales of 993 C4S's for past couple years because I own a 1996 C4S with 24k miles. These are great cars. Have a GT4 and I enjoy driving the 993 just as much.

    @vocaldrone Sir, While I am certainly not a " buyer, flipper or bidder " here on BaT I have done quite a bit of research on the older Porsche's Especially the 993's.
    In fact I sold a 1997 911 / 993 TT, with 20 K miles awhile back at $ 155 K
    It seems you are suggesting that this Porsche, a 285 hp + - , C-4 , yes low miles at 19 K, should sell for more than a Turbo ! ?
    The market, 993, has softened substantially I understand..
    Back to you and the others more knowledgeable than I.

  • vocaldrone 1 monthago

    @sportscarguy3 I very surprised at the comment. When have you seen a pristine 19k mile 993 C4S sell anywhere near 100k let alone under. 3 years ago, this was $170k car. Today it has to be near 150k. At the very least 135ish. At 100k Any dealer would buy a dozen. Maybe repainted and/or higher miles with wing. Full disclosure. I’m not in the market and not a bidder but we need to keep the conversation some what realistic.

  • sportscarguy3 1 monthago

    What a handsome Porsche !
    Good, California, history as well.
    Re ; last bid. Yes, this bidder wants this Porsche I would agree.
    Bid at $ 99 + k should be at or even slightly about the reserve. Imho

  • digit3 1 monthago

    I think that Outfitted9 really wants it! That is some bid increase. Knocked the wind right out of my sails.

    @QQQ -
    -Hand wash
    -Clay bar
    -Ceramic Coating
    Clear bra on wheel wells redone. (Original removed that was done at Carlsen when purchased new ). Plastic was getting old.

  • QQQ 1 monthago

    Seller could you please comment on what if anything was done in terms of paint correction (e.g. compound / polishing) prior to the ceramic coating. Thank you.

    @TubeGuy The paint is all original and in pristine shape. Only one very small chip on the driver side part of the hood. There is clear bra on the wheel wells

  • TubeGuy 1 month, 1 weekago

    Is the paint all original, has it had clear bra protection, and are there many if any chips in the paint? Thanks!

  • sve408 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    The car was originally leased then purchased after the lease expired by the same owner. Car fax reports as a " new owner" every time that occurs unfortunately. Then it was registered to my address after which shows as the third owner. I have proof and documentation on all this.

    Also on the car fax shows a mileage discrepancy which is a total mistake on the DMVs part when the vehicle registered to another property of the families. Instead of putting 9,xxx miles they entered in the lease buy out price.. I have a notarized document showing this mistake was made. I am more then happy to go over any documentation I have on the vehicle and answer any questions anyone might have!! feel free to leave me a comment.
