Now available for auction is this 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S finished in Zenith Blue Metallic over a Classic Grey full leather interior. Reported to have been under the diligent care of the same family from new, this highly collectible 1997 example was purchased by its second and current owner in 2013 who has painstakingly maintained it ever since. Showcasing the widened bodywork of the Turbo model with all-wheel-drive naturally aspirated performance, this sought after 993 Carrera 4S is now being offered by its seller in New Mexico while showing just under 31k miles on the odometer, accompanied by extensive service records and the original window sticker.
The desirable Zenith Blue Metallic finish on this 993 is said to be in excellent condition with full front-end paint protection film up to the A-pillars. Following a minor cosmetic incident, the seller had the hood and front bumper professionally refinished to a very high-standard (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). The front windshield was also replaced in 2019 with an OEM unit. As an all-wheel drive model, this C4S is recognizable by its widened Turbo-style bodywork. Factory Turbo Twist wheels are equipped which come dressed in older Continental Contact Sport 2 tires.
Inside you will find a very well-kept Classic Grey full leather interior featuring supple leather seats, the power seat package and an AM/FM radio with cassette deck and 6-disc remote CD changer. Exclusive options include an aluminum/leather shifter and handbrake lever as well as aluminum-look instrument gauges with chromed bezels. A hardwired connection for the included Valentine One radar detector has been installed; however, the interior remains otherwise stock with all gauges and accessories working properly.
Marking the final iteration of the air cooled 911, this 993 is equipped with a 3.6 L Varioram flat-six engine rated at 282 HP. All four wheels are driven through a 6-speed manual transmission which allows this C4S to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in as little as 5.2 seconds. This example has been optioned with the factory Motor Sound Package which adds a more resonant air box with louder mufflers. Replacement Bilstein PSS9 rear struts were installed under the current ownership and service records from new show proper routine maintenance.
Carfax indicates a mileage discrepancy under the “second” ownership, which the seller confirms to be an error made during a title transfer. The car reportedly belonged to the same family from new up until the seller’s purchase in 2013, making the seller the second true owner of the car.
This sale will also include a set of 2 keys (one of which no longer works remotely), a clean title, all original books and manuals, a comprehensive collection of service records, a toolkit, battery tender, Valentine One radar detector and the original window sticker as well as a jack, spare tire and air compressor. Presented in a stunning color combination while showing approximately 31k miles on the odometer, this 993 Carrera 4S makes an excellent choice for any discerning enthusiast.
