11k-Mile 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S Aerokit

We are pleased to offer this 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S finished in Black over a black leather interior. Among the most sought-after air-cooled cars of all, the 993 Carrera S was produced in limited numbers featuring the wide bodywork of the Turbo model along with a naturally aspirated flat-six engine sending power to the rear wheels. This final-year 1998 example was sold new from a Porsche dealer in New Jersey with rare and highly desirable options including Aerokit Turbo II spoilers, the Aluminum/Chrome Package, 18” hollow-spoke wheels, red-painted brake calipers, Racing Style Sport Seats with deviated stitching and Porsche crested headrests, a rear model designation delete, limited-slip differential, and a shifter, handbrake lever, and steering wheel trimmed in carbon fiber.  Acquired by the current owner in 2003 at just 8k miles, this outstanding 993 Carrera S has been beautifully preserved, upgraded with factory Sports Suspension, and is now being offered for auction out of North Carolina with just over 11,500 miles showing on the odometer.

This Carrera S comes finished in Black and sports factory Exclusive Aerokit Turbo II front and rear spoilers as well as an optional rear model designation delete.  Oval chrome-plated tailpipes are also included with the Aluminum/Chrome Package.  Genuine Turbo S front brake ducts have been installed and the seller has offered to reinstall the original foglight inserts per the next owner’s request.  The car is described to have been very well cared for, being sparingly driven and spending nearly its entire life in climate-controlled storage.  A collection of detailed images can be found in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. Factory Exclusive red-painted brake calipers can be seen behind the optional lightweight 18” Technology hollow-spoke wheels derived from the 993 Turbo.  These wheels come dressed in a set of Bridgestone Potenza S-02 tires which are dated from 2013 and are said to bear less than 1k miles of use.

Inside, this 993 features a black leather interior highlighting a pair of factory hardback Racing Style Sport Seats with Exclusive deviated red stitching and Porsche crested headrests.  Other special features include deviated red seatbelts and a shift knob, brake handle, and steering wheel trimmed in carbon fiber.  The Aluminum/Chrome Package also includes aluminum-look instrument dials as well as stainless-steel door entry guards with model logos. Driver amenities include Litronic Xenon headlamps, cruise control, a sound system with Porsche/Becker CDR-210 radio, and a power sliding sunroof.  The seller describes the cabin to be remarkably well preserved and confirms all gauges and accessories remain fully functional.

Among the very last of the air-cooled 911s, this 993 Carrera S features a 3.6L flat-six Varioram engine that sends as much as 282 HP to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission with an optional limited-slip differential and Automatic Braking Differential (ABD).  The seller states that a genuine factory Sport Suspension (M030) setup has been installed, giving this 993 a firmer and more responsive ride. Under the current ownership, this 993 has been treated to proper upkeep including annual oil and filter changes as well as bi-annual brake fluid flushes. The seller reports that the original suspension will accompany the sale and bears approximately 8k miles of use.

This sale will include the original window sticker, owner's manuals, a set of keys, toolkit, air compressor, jack, car cover, service records, the original suspension, and a clean title. With its low miles and rare factory options, this beautifully presented final-year 993 Carrera S is a Porsche collector’s dream come true.

  • bphillyer (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Thank you everybody for your support. You will see this car outside of my garage. If you are a magazine, or "The Getawayer" (pure gasoline culture!) please contact Pcarmarket so that we can get you a test drive. Concours quality or not, I will NEVER be that guy who just sits there, roosting on his garage-queen.

  • L39E 1 month, 1 weekago

    This is still a bargain. It is nearly impossible to find one in this condition and the spec on this car is incredible. If I did not have a nearly identical black aero kit 97 C4S (more carbon, no sunroof, 5x the miles) I would be all over this.

    @bphillyer Love it. Even if you drive it for many years - it will still be a very LOW mileage example. Good Luck - I hope u win this one

  • bphillyer (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @blazingstarz Never know who’s gonna come in and demolish us desperate, re-mortgage-the- house, kids-outta the-nest guys. If I get it, you WILL see it out and about. Life’s too short, and Time is everything - no garage-queens here. Any magazine that wants to test it would be welcome, and The Getawayer gets to drive it whenever he wants!

  • blazingstarz 1 month, 1 weekago

    I thought it was going to come down to two bidders JJensen and bphillyer but it looks like a ddisiere popped up just in time. I know I would not let go of mine unless maybe $30k more than this spec since it's a more rare spec although higher miles and I paid a record price back then. This will definitely be a nice collection piece for the winner!

    @Laurier911 Where’d you show it? You’ve taken such beautiful care of the car.

  • bphillyer (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @sportscarguy3 The 1996 twin-turbo you speak of is such an amazing car! I can feel how you would miss driving it. For me, of the all-time 911 greats, models like your old 993 twin-turbo, and of course, the rare GT-2’s...any of these last air-cooled variants brings a welcome note to the ear!

  • Laurier911 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Sorry, no longer have the concours sheets.

  • CScrogham (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @bphillyer pretty sure there are, if it were my car would be very happy to share as I recall it won some awards along the way

  • bphillyer (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @CScrogham ARE there concours records to view? I would love to see those!

  • bphillyer (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @stuttgartsteve Hi Steve! In view of Laurie’s response, I would be very curious to see you how he answers more of your good questions, and how he might view your insightful observations.

  • Laurier911 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    The car last passed Illinois OBD test 500 miles ago. Almost all serviced were done in my garage and the new buyer will get the records.
    Annual oil and filter were done annually with brake fluid changed bi-annually.
    Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks for your interest.

  • stuttgartsteve (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    This appears to be a low mileage 993 but it is certainly not a highly documented 993. Sure, it has a clean undercarriage. The seller knew at least 16 days ago he was to auction this vehicle but the prospect of at least $180k was not incentive enough to scan/post all of the maintenance book pages or the previous maintenance documents (vice a document dump on card table) or perform an emissions test in the last 6 years.

  • Rennwagen (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Holy spotless undercarriage, Batman! Beautiful example and what a nice combo of options. Good luck with auction but you won’t need it, I bet this will set a new record for WB 993.

  • CScrogham (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Great car and history, really think you should include some Concours score sheets from its past so people know the level of car they are dealing with! GLWS!

  • sportscarguy3 (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Man I like this Porsche!
    Really regret selling my 1996 twin turbo
    The aero kit really makes this car shine
    Of course, the 11 K miles doesn’t hurt either
    Good luck all

    The window sticker is in the gallery. The car was never serviced at any Indy anywhere.
    I’ll add pix of the service manual tomorrow.

  • hayesproperties (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Hi Seller

    Do you have a copy of the window sticker?

    Can you take a shot of the first few pages of the service booklet?

    When you and the car were in Illinois did you have it serviced at Perfect Power in Libertyville?

    Thanks

  • bphillyer (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Laurier911 Hi Laurie, gorgeous. Thank you for your thorough paint readings. Say can we get a couple of paint meter readings on the driver-side door? I see that you show a 3.8 (I think) on the door’s top-most curve, right below the window (driver’s side/left-side). I was wondering if we could get a few more readings, moving straight down, vertically, from your earlier readings, say, down the middle of the door?

  • Laurier911 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Sorry last service was 12/20

  • Laurier911 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago
