The vehicle in detail

Our car only had two owners in Strasbourg before being quickly acquired by a Parisian. The latter kept it for a year before selling it, on 07/26/2006, to its current owner. Having known only four rigorous owners, this car still has its complete documentation, its tool kit, original cove and a stamped and up-to-date maintenance book since maintenance will be carried out for the sale . The maintenance of this superb 4S with its discreet and original configuration has always been exemplary.

This French 993 4S is today in a very good state of conservation. Although the front is marked by gravel, it has a very beautiful paint and an interior in very good condition. Completely original, it also has an additional fiber spoiler that can be sold with the car. Some aesthetic costs due to the age of the car and its use will be made for the sale (repair of the rims as well as a complete detailing).

It is therefore a rare opportunity to acquire one of the most beautiful and one of the most desirable modern Porsches in air cooling in an elegant and original configuration, which moreover is French of origin to the maintenance copy.

History of the Porsche 993 Carrera 4S

Would it be essential to recall the history of the 911 myth? In short, the 911 has been the cornerstone, the spearhead, the figurehead of the Stuttgart manufacturer for almost half a century. With the signature of its so particular architecture so much criticized, the “901” – which will become 911 – will take with it a monstrous wave of aficionados, granting itself over the years a major place in the history of the automobile. More than a simple car, the 993 will become the symbol of a philosophy, a lifestyle, a state of mind. From California to Japan, via Europe, the 911 is still a worldwide success today. If  Ferrari  has become inseparable from the color red,  Porsche is and will forever be linked to the 911. As generations continue to succeed and evolve, older versions share an important notoriety, each with their own “tricks”. The 911 type 993, fourth of the name, is one of the most popular today. Why ? Considered by many fans of the brand as certainly the best 911, it has even captured the attention of the most reluctant. Produced from 1994 to 1998, the 993 will remain the last  Porsche air-cooled. In other words? It will remain like the last real 911. Its engine, the 3.6 M64 flat-six, is undoubtedly one of the best engines ever produced. So, of course, “air cooling” pollutes more and consumes a little more, but the important thing is not there. The important thing is the sound, and it is certainly not you – dear readers, buyers and collectors – who will dare to contradict us. On the design side, it is certainly complicated to innovate and really differentiate the 911. The shape remains the same. It is in the subtlety of the details that the difference is made. In this game, the 993 decided on its release with the previous versions. Cleaner, simpler, finer, the 993 is for some the most beautiful of the 911. How can we not agree with them? Ultimately, the 993 remains the perfect compromise between modernity and classicism, a modern 911, and yet already a classic. The 993 is a fantastic car, cool by definition, simple, with murderous elegance. In addition to a sound that will no longer be found, the 993 is still affordable. It can also boast of being exquisite in its different variations. Targa, Cabriolet, Turbo and so on, to each their own 993.

Surprisingly, the success of 993 was – when it was released – only mixed. Fans are not all in a hurry to snatch the Carrera. But history reminds us that a timid exit does not mean failure. Far from there. When the 993 Turbo appears, the machine starts up. And in the same way, Porsche having a very good memory of good recipes, the German manufacturer will have the good taste to take again a concept which had all seduced before: to associate the “small” atmospheric engine (the M64 Variocam of 284hp) with the Turbo Look . Thus was born the Carrera 4S. But Porschedid even better. The Carrera 4S would boast of inheriting the very noble chassis of the Turbo, also taking over the running gear, the brakes and the “Wide Body” bodywork of the latter. In short, the 4S was really just a Turbo without a Turbo with – what’s more – performance below the standard Carrera 4. To hell with that detail. The important thing was not there. The Carrera 4S will outperform the Carrera and other Carrera 4. She’s the one that stood out, and let’s face it, she’s the one we all want.
