We are pleased to present this 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S finished in Guard’s Red over a black leather interior. Marking the final production year for the air-cooled 911, this 1998 Carrera S is amongst the most collectible vintage Porsche’s on the road. Purchased by its current owner in 2003 from a dealership in Boston, this 2-owner Tiptronic example has been kept in outstanding condition with approximately 45k miles now showing on the odometer. Having undergone a comprehensive 45k mile service within the last 100 miles, this Carrera S is ready to begin its journey with a new caretaker.
The classic Guards Red finish is said to be in excellent condition with some very minor chipping. A collection of detailed images is provided in the photo gallery. Sought after for its styling, the 993 Carrera S shares the widened body of the Turbo model with a distinctive split-grill rear decklid. This 993 rides on factory Cup 2 wheels which come dressed in Michelin tires dated from 2014 with plenty of tread life remaining. The rear tires are dated 2018 and the front tires are noted to be slightly older.
The driver is situated in a black leather interior featuring 8-way power operated seats in supple leather. Factory options include power windows and mirrors, a power sunroof and the Premium Sound Package. The radio has been upgraded and the driver’s seat rails are said to have been professionally extended by a dealer. The cabin is noted to be in exceptional condition with all accessories remaining fully functional, and the seller confirms that the original Porsche radio will be included in-sale.
This Carrera S carries an air-cooled 3.6 L flat-six engine which is rated at 282HP and 250 lb.-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a refined Tiptronic automatic transmission making for an accommodating driving experience. This 993 has been equipped with the optional Motor Sound Package which adds a more resonant airbox and muffler. Service records indicate this 993 to be up to date on all due maintenance with a comprehensive 45k mile service carried out in 2019 within the last 100 miles.
The sale of this 993 will include a set of two keys, the original books, tools and radio, service records, a spare tire, air pump, car cover and battery tender. Showing to have been impeccably well-kept throughout the years, this final-generation air-cooled Carrera S is not to be missed.
