We are pleased to present this rare 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo S finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a special Boxster Red leather interior with carbon fiber details. Marking the final revision for the air-cooled 911 Turbo, the 993 Turbo S model was manufactured through Porsche’s Exclusive department and limited to under 200 examples worldwide. Featuring a special factory aerokit and a 450 HP twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, the 993 Turbo S remains one of the most sought after air-cooled Porsches of all time. One of approximately 180 units delivered to the United States, this generously equipped and beautifully preserved 1997 example is an absolute Porsche collector’s dream with just over 13k miles showing on the odometer.
The Arctic Silver Metallic finish is stated to be in excellent condition with paint protection film applied over the front bumper. The seller indicates all paint to be original with the exception of the hood (a collection of detailed images has been provided in the photo gallery along with recent paint meter readings). The Turbo S model can be distinguished by its factory Aerokit II with revised front and rear spoilers, additional air intakes, yellow painted brake calipers and quad-tip exhaust. Factory options on this example include Litronic Bi-Xenon headlights with cleaners, a rear window wiper, third brake light and 18” alloy Turbo Twist wheels. These wheels come dressed in Bridgestone Potenza tires which are dated 2017, although the rear driver’s side tire is dated 2016.
The interior is upholstered in special Boxster Red leather with carbon fiber trim throughout the cabin. Unique details on the Turbo S include chromium plated instrument bezels, silver gauge dials and “Turbo S” carpet embroidery in the boot and on the rear seat backs. The interior is said to be in exemplary condition with no modifications other than an upgraded Kenwood head unit. This Turbo S has also been factory equipped with the following exclusive options:
This Turbo S carries an air-cooled 3.6 L twin-turbocharged flat-six engine which is factory equipped with larger K-24 turbos, an additional oil cooler and some mechanical fine-tuning. 425 HP is delivered to all four wheels through a number’s matching 6-speed manual transmission making for an impressive 0-60 time of approximately 3.5 seconds. No performance modifications have been made, preserving this car’s factory intended ride quality. A basic safety inspection was performed within the last year and a half, and this Turbo S is said to be in excellent running order with a fresh fluid and filter service carried out in preparation for sale.
The sale of this 993 will include a set of two keys, the original owner’s books and some recent service records. This 993 Turbo S will make the perfect addition to any world class Porsche collection.
