We are pleased to present this 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera S finished in Ocean Blue Metallic over a Midnight Blue leather interior. With its low production numbers, wide Turbo body, and rear-wheel drive configuration, the 993 C2S remains one of the most highly collectible and well-regarded air-cooled Porsche 911s of all time. This particular example was recently acquired by the seller from its long-term second owner who is said to have provided the car with the utmost care and attention throughout his 21 years of ownership. It comes factory equipped with Sport Suspension, the Engine Sound Package, the Aluminum/Chrome Package, and pleated leather seats. Currently showing just over 48k miles on the odometer, this 993 Carrera S is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Florida, accompanied by original manuals, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, tools, keys, and service records.
This 993 is finished in Ocean Blue Metallic and is reported to have been garage kept for nearly its entire life. Only minor signs of road-going wear are noted, and the headlights, fog lights, and fender stone guards are said to have been recently replaced. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. The wide turbo-derived bodywork of this Carrera S is complemented by an added Turbo-style rear wing. Optional stainless steel exhaust pipes (X54) are equipped as part of the Aluminum/Chrome Package and this 993 rides on a set of 18" Speedline multi-piece wheels that come dressed in a set of Bridgestone Potenza tires.
Inside, this 993 sports an attractive Midnight Blue leather interior with supple leather seats and the Aluminum/Chrome Package which includes stainless steel door entry guards and aluminum-look instrument gauges with brushed chrome rings. Other factory features include an Exclusive shift knob and handbrake lever in aluminum, the Power Seat Package, Digital Sound Package, a sunroof, and a remote 6-disc CD changer. Some very minor signs of wear are noted and over $1800 is said to have been previously invested in the upgraded stereo system which includes an Alpine radio, subwoofer, and amplifier. All gauges and accessories are reported to be fully functional and the original stereo components will be included in the sale.
The air-cooled 3.6L flat-six Varioram engine is capable of producing 282 HP, which is sent through a 6-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels. Factory Sport suspension (030) is equipped as well as the Motor Sound Package which adds a more resonant airbox and muffler. The engine undertray has been removed for improved cooling and will also accompany the sale. A major recent service was carried out in 2020 which included an oil change, new valve cover and timing cover gaskets, new timing chain case ramps, new front oil lines, a new power steering pump, and a new rear bumper seal. Extensive records kept by the previous owner detail a lifetime of proper care and maintenance, please see the images provided in the photo gallery.
The sale will include a set of two keys, books, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a toolkit, an air compressor, service records, a front bumper bra, original stereo components, and a car cover. Sporting fantastic factory options and a beautiful color combination, this 993 is sure to satisfy any air-cooled Porsche enthusiast.
