Representing one of the most sought-after models of its generation as well as the final year of the air-cooled Porsche 911, this 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S was purchased new by its current owner and is finished in a rare combination of Pastel Yellow over Chestnut Brown leather upholstery. It came from the factory with optional hardback Sport Seats, stainless steel exhaust pipes, and a limited-slip differential and has been upgraded with a cold air intake, a performance exhaust system, and adjustable Bilstein coilover shocks. Driven approximately 1,500 miles per year and maintained by reputable Porsche specialists, this Carrera S is now being offered for auction by its original owner out of New York while showing just over 38k miles on the odometer.
The 993 Carrera S or C2S shares its wide bodyshell and bumpers with the contemporary 911 Turbo and is distinguished by a unique split-grille rear decklid. This final-year example comes finished in Pastel Yellow (L12M), an uncommon color offered on the 911 between 1997 and 1999. It rides on factory 18” 911 Turbo-Look wheels dressed in Hankook Ventus V12 Evo tires (2014). An additional set of 18” Technology wheels with Nitto tires is said to be included as well. The seller states that the car’s paint is entirely original and has been treated with a ceramic coating. The exterior is said to remain in good overall condition apart from a small paint chip on the front bumper and two small chips near the passenger headlight. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean one-owner CARFAX report.
The cabin features rare Chestnut Brown (SD) leather upholstery including factory-optioned hardback Sport Seats. Other equipment includes the Sound Package, a Porsche CDR-210 stereo, an electric sunroof, automatic climate control, cruise control, an onboard computer, and a central locking system. An aftermarket stainless steel footrest and accelerator pedal have been installed and the seller reports all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
An air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 282 HP to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission and an optional limited-slip differential. The seller indicates the car has been upgraded with an aftermarket cold air intake, performance exhaust system, and adjustable Bilstein coilovers. The car benefits from annual oil changes and inspections and has been regularly serviced by the Porsche specialists at Eksten Autoworks and Black Forest Motorsport in New York. The seller notes that front hood shocks are weak and replacement shocks are included in the sale.
This sale will include the owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, and an air pump. The seller notes a duplicate title has been issued and is expected to arrive within their possession by the end of the auction or shortly thereafter.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. I bought this car in 1998, it has had only one owner and one driver. It has a couple of cosmetic flaws (see photos). Runs great! The tires are old but look like new. I would not recommend track time, but they should last a long time for street driving. Also, a full set of Nittos on Technology wheels is included. The car was stored every winter in my climate-controlled garage. It has had no bodywork, all original paint, ceramic coated, polished, and buffed every year.”
