Details

A 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S is on offer in really excellent condition with a complete service history. The Porsche is a re-import from Japan (country code C08, Japan version with left-hand drive) and only had three owners. Four entries are noted in the history, but at the time of the Japanese first owner there was a change from a company to a private vehicle without a change of ownership. Thanks to the extremely low and verifiable mileage of 30,300 km, the Carrera S is almost as good as new. A Classic Data valuation report was made on the 2016 report with a mileage of 27,185 km, which certifies the vehicle is in condition “1-” and has a replacement value of € 155,000.

For many purists, the 993 is the last real 911, as all subsequent models have turned away from air cooling to rely on water cooling. This enables a higher power density, but exchanges the unmistakable sound of the air-cooled boxer. The 993 thus has the final evolutionary stage of the air-cooled boxer six-cylinder. The advanced development is noticeable in many ways: On the one hand, the engine is more powerful than its predecessor, on the other hand, it is also less prone to defects and cheaper to maintain, mainly through the use of hydraulic valve lifters, which makes costly valve adjustments superfluous.

The S models are particularly desirable within the 993 series. They should fill the gap in the model range between the normal Carrera and the Turbo. First there was the Carrera 4S with all-wheel drive, which was followed by the rear-wheel drive and much rarer Carrera S. Both share the widened body including the front apron, the wide sills and the rims with the 993 Turbo. Visually, an S-model can be distinguished from the turbo by the lack of a fixed rear wing. The Carrera S has an automatically extending rear wing of the normal model, which stands out from the standard spoiler due to the look of the ventilation grille: It is adorned with a double grille that is separated by a central bar.
