Up for auction is this 1-owner 1998 993 Carrera 4S Coupe. Being a 4S model, this 993 is equipped with extremely desirable features shared with the Turbo model including an advanced all-wheel drive system, upgraded brakes, a sportier wide body look, and hollow spoke wheels. Purchased new from MCL Porsche in Vancouver, this 993 is one of only 299 reported C4S examples built in 1998 and is still maintained by its original owner. Currently showing just 47,000km (29k miles) on the odometer, this well-kept Carrera 4S is being offered for auction in an impeccably clean and original state by its lifelong owner out of Vancouver.
Finished in Glacier White over Charcoal Grey, this Turbo-body 993 pulls off a striking look. This example is said to retain its fully original paint, bearing only minor signs of road wear. Factory lowered suspension beautifully accentuates the OEM Turbo Twist wheels, which come wrapped in high performance Pirelli P-Zero tires. Completely stock in appearance while remaining exceptionally clean, this 993 is sure to satisfy even the most discerning collector.
Utilizing improved rear suspension technology, the 993 offered a quieter and more comfortable ride than any 911 before it. This 993 has been appointed with a Charcoal Grey leather interior which remains in excellent condition bearing only slight creasing on the highly desirable hard back sport seats. Ahead of its time, this 4S is also factory optioned with desirable carbon fiber and aluminum trim throughout the cabin. The seller confirms that all electrical components and accessories are in working order.
Featuring improvements across the board, the 993 employs a revolutionary alloy multi-link rear suspension, upgraded power steering, new dual-flow exhaust and larger brakes. Power comes from a 3.6L flat-six engine which sends 282HP to all four wheels by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission. Without any upgrades, this car is capable of accelerating from 0-60 in approximately five seconds while reaching top speeds of nearly 170. This car’s performance is further enhanced with a factory performance exhaust system which also provides for a stellar soundtrack. Always dealer maintained, this 993 has never suffered serious mechanical issues and currently stands in perfect driving condition.
Included in the sale of this 993 C4S are two keys (one of which requires minor repair) and original owner’s manuals. A clean Carfax report detailing this car’s accident free history will be provided as well. The seller would like to mention that complete service records may be requested from the selling dealer, MCL Porsche, in Vancouver. 993’s have become increasingly sought after for their uncanny ability to combine refined modern performance with an old school, analog feel. Do not miss your opportunity to secure yourself a true collector’s grade 993.
