We are pleased to present this very unique 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo S for auction. With only 182 examples ever built, the 993 Turbo S stands as one of the most highly-sought after 911’s in existence. Possibly a one-of-one example, this Turbo S features an extremely rare build and is an ideal vehicle for the perspective Porsche collector. It has been in the hands of its original owner since new and is now showing 18k miles on the odometer.
At first glance, it is clear that this Turbo S is something special. It has been specially ordered in Cobalt Blue Metallic and features unique styling cues such as a factory wide-body with iconic integrated air vents, yellow brake calipers, a revised rear spoiler, a quad-tipped exhaust system and an Aerokit front spoiler with special vent and fog-light placement. This example also comes equipped with factory 18” exterior color-matched wheels that are wrapped in new Michelin tires.
Inside, you will find a specially-configured Metropol Blue leather interior that highlights factory carbon fiber trim and yellow deviated stitching throughout. Clearly a unique build, this interior also features a factory rear seat delete, yellow seatbelts, digital sound package and a carbon fiber steering wheel. A few tasteful add-ons were installed by the owner including removable Techart pedal covers, custom carbon fiber center console trim with a built-in radar detector and yellow painted seat-back which were implemented by the selling dealer among his purchase. The seller notes the interior to be in excellent condition with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional.
The Turbo S received a healthy performance boost over the standard 993 Turbo. Featuring larger twin K-24 turbochargers, an additional oil cooler and some mechanical fine-tuning, the 993 Turbo S is capable of producing 424hp, about 25hp more than the standard Turbo. The Turbo S rockets to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, impressive even by today’s standards. This 993 delivers power to all four wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. The seller notes that H&R springs are installed and set to a euro height which enhances the look of this Turbo S. A Fabspeed exhaust has also been installed for a pleasant exhaust note. This Turbo is said to be up-to-date on all due maintenance and remains in excellent running condition. Records of service will be included with the sale.
The sale of this incredibly unique Turbo S will also include two keys, the original window sticker, a certificate of authenticity, and a clean Carfax report.
