The Carrera S models were launched for the 1996 model year and featured the powerful 285bhp Varioram engine, they were fitted with the wide body of the Turbo model together with a lowered chassis which gave them a very aggressive stance.
It has often been quoted that the 993 was the car that nearly broke Porsche financially because it was over engineered and expensive to produce. Today that translates into the most extensively developed air-cooled cars produced by the factory and built to last.
The 993 C2S is arguably the most desirable of the normally aspirated 993’s and was available with manual or switchable Tiptronic transmission, with the later being more popular when new. Purists will argue that these cars should have a manual gearbox, but anyone who lives inside the M25 will definitely find this car more appealing. The switchable gearbox operated from the steering wheel allows for spirited driving when allowed, whilst the fully automatic mode suits more typical driving found on your average city ring road at rush hour.
When you first set eyes on this example, you will see it certainly looks well for its years and still in excellent condition, being free from the rattles and squeaks that trouble later mass-produced cars. It has been meticulously maintained predominantly by OPCs throughout its life and fitted with the Blaupunkt Bremen SQR 46 dab radio with Bluetooth capabilities.
This example was supplied and registered on the 1st of January 1997 from Lancaster Bow, London. Finished in Arena Red metallic with Marble Grey interior, it was specified from new as a UK C16 RHD and also came with a list of desirable factory fitted options listed below.
