VEHICLE DESCRIPTION

The Carrera S models were launched for the 1996 model year and featured the powerful 285bhp Varioram engine, wide body of the Turbo model together with a lowered chassis which gave them a very aggressive stance.

The 993 C2S is arguably the most desirable of the normally aspirated 993’s with its driving experience more pure than the C4S. This is due to it weighing 25kg less allowing it to be marginally quicker over a standing kilometre, nimbler on the road and features lighter steering that gives a more communicative feel at the helm. The original 911 was rear engined and rear wheel drive with a manual gearbox, so it is fitting for this Porsche to stay true to its heritage by being the last air-cooled version produced in a specification as originally intended.

This example is finished in Arctic Silver with Boxster red interior and was supplied and registered to Midwestern Autogroup in Ohio, USA in 1998. It was then sold to the second owner 15.04.1998. It was then fitted with the X51 3.8l upgrade on 17.03.00 at 19,400 miles using original factory parts.

The second owner kept the car until 2008 when it then changed hands to its third owner in January 2008 at 63,000 miles. The car was then purchased by by its fourth owner 8 months later in September at 66,000 miles who then sold the car to its final American owner in 2010 at 71,000 miles.

It was then shipped to the UK last year with 80,108 miles and was registered in July 2018. It then covered a further 400 miles to 80,500 miles where it stands today.
