Produced in modest quantities sporting the wide bodywork of the Turbo along with a unique split-grille rear decklid, the Carrera S is perhaps the most sought-after 993 of all. This particular example comes finished in the highly desirable Vesuvio Metallic and is equipped with lightweight 18” Technology lightweight hollow spoke wheels, a rear window wiper, and rare Tiptronic transmission. This 1997 993 Carrera S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Germany showing approximately 124k km (77k miles) on the odometer.
Sharing the Turbo model’s bodyshell, this Carrera S is finished in Vesuvio Metallic which elegantly fades between shades of purple and grey. The Turbo-derived 18” Technology hollow-spoke wheels are dressed in Toyo Proxes tires. The seller notes some minor paint imperfections and that the clearcoat appears to have been renewed in some areas, detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The interior is appointed with black partial leather. Standard features include air conditioning, power windows, central locking, cruise control, and an electric sunroof. Factory equipment includes a heated and electronically adjustable driver’s seat, air conditioning, power windows and steering, rear window wipers, and Litronic headlights. The seller adds that an upgraded radio system has been installed, and the leather shows some wear although the switches, consoles, and door panels remain in good condition.
Among the last of the air-cooled 911s, this Carrera S is equipped with a 3.6-liter flat-six Varioram engine that sends as much as 282 HP to the rear wheels through a 4-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. The seller adds that a sport exhaust system has been installed and the bearings, belts, oil, brake fluid, and spark plugs have been replaced in preparation for sale.
This sale will include a clean title.
