FOR SALE: Highly Original 1997 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera S

Collecting Cars is currently offering a well-maintained and highly original 1997 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera S.

This example is finished in Glacier White with black side stripes and ‘Carrera S’ script, and boasts a black leather-trimmed interior that’s still in excellent condition. It also comes with front and rear aero kit spoilers, and carbon-fibre trim on the dashboard, door panels, gear knob, and handbrake grip, Becker Porsche CR-210 cassette-radio, a CD changer, the premium audio system, air conditioning, automatic speed control, an electric sunroof, electric windows, electrically adjustable front seats, a heated rear windscreen, a cigarette lighter, fog lights, a third high-level brake light, and an on-board trip computer.

Porsche decided to offer something more to its customers when it launched the 993-generation Carrera S version. It featured a stiffer and lowered suspension. Its wider tires made it better in the corners and faster around a race-track than its Carrera 2 sibling. The Carrera S took its bodywork from the Porsche Turbo. But it didn’t get the turbocharger or the all-wheel-drive system. Its wider rear fenders and lowered stance than the Carrera lineup made it a desirable car for the Porsche fans. The engine was the same 3.6-liter naturally aspirated, but it was offered in the higher power output of 285 hp. The only transmission available was a 6-speed manual.

It was fitted with the more powerful version of the 3.6-liter engine available for its sibling. It featured a stiffer and lowered suspension. Its wider tires made it better in the corners and faster around a race-track than its Carrera 2 sibling. The Carrera S took its bodywork from the Porsche Turbo. But it didn’t get the turbocharger or the all-wheel-drive system. Its wider rear fenders and lowered stance than the Carrera lineup made it a desirable car for the Porsche fans. The windshield was not very raked and the sloped back toward the end of the car made a curved line along with the engine lid. A rear spoiler was installed and it was automatically extended over 80 kph (50 mph), or via a button installed in front of the gear-stick.

The interior featured better sport seats with better support on the shoulders to keep its occupants in their seats while hard cornering. There were two seats in the back, basically only to place some bags, not humans, since they were very small and there were limited legroom and headroom. The instrument cluster featured five dials, with the tachometer in the middle and the Carrera S logo on it. The climate controls and the stereo were mounted in line with the steering column.

Don’t miss this chance to own an excellent and well-maintained example of a 993-generation Porsche 911 Carrera S that also happens to come with exceptional performance options and highly-coveted Aeorkit package. This car is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner who wants to have fun both on the road and on the track and would also make for an excellent addition to any Porsche collection.
