We are pleased to offer this 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S finished in Arctic Silver Metallic. Among the very last air-cooled Porsches to have been produced, this final-year 993 Carrera S showcases optional 18” hollow-spoke wheels, the Motor Sound Package, a limited-slip differential with ABD, a rear window wiper, and a Midnight Blue interior with heated leather seats. Sold new from Beechmont Motors of Cincinnati, this 993 was acquired by the seller from its original owner in 2002 before being sold to its second and third owners in Virginia. Recently reacquired by the seller, this C2S has since undergone a major service and is now being offered for auction with approximately 35k miles showing on the odometer.
Finished in Arctic Silver Metallic, this Carrera S is distinguished by its wide Turbo-derived bodywork and unique split grille rear decklid. The car has been lowered to European ride height and a recent full paint correction and detail was performed by MX Autocare. Apart from a few small touched-up chips, the finish is described to have been preserved in excellent original condition. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. This Carrera S was ordered with optional lightweight 18” Technology hollow-spoke wheels and colored Porsche center crests. These desirable Turbo-derived wheels come dressed in a set of new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.
Inside, this 993 showcases a Midnight Blue interior with matching floor mats and power-adjustable heated seats in leather. Standard features include a power sunroof, power windows, automatic climate control, headlight washers, power/heated mirrors, and remote entry with alarm. The cabin shows to have been very well maintained and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be working properly including the original CDR-210 radio.
This 993 is equipped with an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six featuring a VarioRam resonant induction system, DME engine management, dual exhaust system, and an output of up to 282 HP. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual gearbox with an optional limited-slip differential and Automatic Braking Differential (ABD). Standard performance features include front and rear stabilizer bars, multilink LSA rear suspension, and four-piston vented disc brakes with ABS. The car had been driven very sparingly by its prior owner and since acquiring the car, the seller has carried out a major service using all OEM parts including new brake pads, rotors, and sensors, fluid and filter changes, new valve lifters, spark plugs, engine accessory belts, a new battery, and hood struts. A small leak was also detected in the power steering system which was subsequently rebuilt using a KLA Industries seal kit and two new steering rack boots.
This sale will include the original window sticker, owner's manuals, stamped dealer maintenance book, a set of keys, an air compressor, toolkit, and a clean title. A nicely preserved and unmolested example of what is arguably the most desirable 993 of all, this final-year Carrera S makes an excellent choice for collectors and discerning drivers alike.
