The Carfax report shows no indication of any accident or damage history. The owner was forthright while describing his vehicle by explaining that he was aware the vehicle did have some paintwork. A meter test confirmed his claim and shows that the driver side and hood have been painted. A professional inspection confirmed that no panels were removed or replaced and that the paintwork appears to have just been for cosmetic reasons. A small chip on the rear bumper and a scuff on the front bumper are reported to be the only flaws to speak of. It was also noted that there might have been a roll bar installed inside the vehicle at some point. The Carfax report is shown in the gallery below and does outline 24 service history records.

The 993 is a very special Porsche for many reasons, however, it gets the most notoriety for being the very last air-cooled 911 produced. For the US, the C2S is one of the rarest versions produced and was the only rear-drive model available with the turbo body. Bespoke to the C2S is the unique painted Twin-Grill that pays homage to the 356. There were also a number of unique interior details found on the C2S that separated this model from the others. Items include; Carrera S tachometer stamp, dark gray gauges and bezels, shifter and handbrake handle, and special trim on the dash and door panels.
