We are pleased to present this 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S finished Ocean Blue Metallic over a Cashmere Beige partial leather interior. Marking the final production year for the air-cooled 911, this 1998 Carrera S is among the most collectible vintage Porsche’s on the market. The C2S is especially sought after for its low production numbers and combination of wide bodywork with rear-wheel-drive, naturally aspirated performance. This 1998 example was originally sold by Porsche of Eastchester, New York, and features a desirable factory limited-slip differential. It has recently undergone over $16k worth of service and upgrades including a refresh of the braking system, sway bars, belts, and fluids as well as the installation of a new Fister Stage 2 exhaust system, 18” Fuchs wheels, new speakers, and a Porsche Classic radio. Accompanied by the factory Cup 2 wheels, original window sticker, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and an extensive collection of records dating back to new, this remarkable 1998 C2S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Massachusetts with just over 20k miles showing on the odometer.
This Carrera S is finished in the rare factory color of Ocean Blue Metallic, a desirable shade introduced for the 993 generation. The C2S is characterized by its wide Turbo-style bodywork and distinctive split-grille rear decklid. The seller reports some light scuffs on the underside of the front bumper, additional photos are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. A rear wiper is equipped, and the optional Technic Package includes Litronic bi-xenon headlights with washers. This 993 rides on a set of new 18” Fuchs wheels dressed in Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tires. The original 17” Cup 2 wheels will also be included with the sale.
The Cashmere Beige and black partial leather interior features a power-operated driver’s seat, cruise control, an electric sunroof, and a Carrera S logo central tachometer. A new aluminum shift knob has been recently installed along with an upgraded Porsche Classic radio and new speakers. The seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional at this time.
This 993 is equipped with an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six Varioram engine capable of sending up to 282 HP to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission with an optional limited-slip differential. A major service was carried out in 2020 by The Boston Sports Car Company at a cost of over $16k including new drive belts, filters, fluids, spark plugs, sway bar bushings and end links, and a refreshed braking system with all new pads, rotors, and hoses. An upgraded Fister Stage 2 exhaust was also installed including a Sport Muffler with titanium finish and hardware. An oil change was recently carried out in April of 2021 at 19,956 miles and corresponding invoices are provided for reference in the photo gallery.
This sale will include two sets of keys, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the original window sticker, owner's manuals, the original 17” Cup 2 wheels, and a clean title. Often regarded as the ultimate iteration of the air-cooled 911, this low-mile 993 C2S would make a fine selection for any discerning enthusiast.
