Created by Porsche’s Exclusive Department as the final air-cooled 911 Turbo, the Turbo S was intended to be the ultimate 911 of its day with additional luxuries, special equipment, and a more powerful twin-turbocharged flat-six engine. This 1997 example is one of only 345 produced in total and comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a Leather to Sample interior in Can Can Red. A true collector's item and an excellent investment opportunity, this rare Turbo S is now being offered for auction out of Florida with under 2k miles showing on the odometer.
The Turbo S is characterized by unique 959-style air intakes integrated into the rear fenders as well as Aerokit II front and rear spoilers, quad exhaust outlets, titanium-colored model lettering, and Speed Yellow painted brake calipers. This example is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and remains preserved by a layer of clear paint protection film over the hood, front bumper, fenders, and mirrors. The factory 18” hollow-spoke wheels come fitted with model logo center caps and original Bridgestone Potenza tires.
Inside, the Turbo S features leather upholstery covering nearly every plastic surface as well as carbon fiber trim spanning the instrument panel, dashboard, door handles, gear knob, and handbrake lever. The Turbo S also receives special silver instrument dials with chromium-plated bezels along with colored seatbelts and silver “Turbo S” script embroidered into the folding rear seatbacks. This example showcases a Can Can Red Leather to Sample interior and includes optional leather-edged floor mats with Porsche script, self-dimming mirrors, and a rain sensor.
The air-cooled 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine provides an output of up to 424 HP and 423 lb.-ft of torque. The Turbo S achieves an increase of 16 HP and 25 lb.-ft of torque over the standard 993 Turbo using a factory Powerkit with larger K24 turbochargers, an additional oil cooler, and a modified control unit. The Turbo S also comes from the factory with a 15mm lowered sports suspension as well as reinforced shock towers. All four wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. The seller reports there are no outstanding service items and has supplied a collection of maintenance records which are provided for reference in the photo gallery.
This sale will include a clean title, the original window sticker, owner’s manuals, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and a clean title.
