The interior is also in blue, as are the dials of the instrument cluster and the air vents. The leather has the color Nacht Blau (midnight blue). The car was fitted with electronic cut-off which was only available on the RS, GT2 and Speedster models. This model had a large number of bespoke equipment and Porsche never communicated its existence.

This Porsche was equipped with an aluminum plaque on the dashboard (above the glove compartment) which pays homage to Prof. Ferry Porsche via the inscription: “Im memoriam Prof. Ferry Porsche – Wahr sind nur die Erinnerungen, die wir mit uns tragen, die Traume, die wir spinnen, und die Sehnsuchte, die uns treiben. Damit wollen wir uns bescheiden. 03.27.1998”

(In memory of Professor Ferry Porsche – Only the memories we carry with us are real, the dreams we carry and the desires that drive us. We can be satisfied with them. 03.27.1998 (date of his death) ). This is a quote from a 1944 German film called “Die Feuerzangenbowle”.

A letter dated 25/09/1998 from Porsche AG has been sent to the first owner, the famous German writer and friend of Ferry Porsche – Clauss Vanderborg – to certify that this is indeed the very last Porsche Type 993 delivered.

Moreover, the Porsche Altötting Center had a specific plate made and attached to the edge of the driver’s door which bears the following inscription: “Clauss Vanderborg erhält heute den letzten klassischen Porsche 911 (993 turbo) mit luftgekühltem Boxermotor. THE BEAT IS YOURS FOREVER! Porsche Zentrum Altötting 25.09.1998” (Clauss Vanderborg today received the last classic Porsche 911 (993 turbo) with an air-cooled Boxer engine. The pace is yours forever! Porsche Center Altötting 25.09.1998).

The brushed aluminum door sills also have a specific inscription: “The Last Waltz”.

A specific sticker is stuck on the rear window, bearing the inscription “The Last Waltz – 993 turbo”, the drawing of a couple dancing on a waltz and the Porsche logo with the reference to the year 1998.

A yellow sticker with 2 silhouettes of Porsche 356 and 911 with the inscription “50 Jahre Porsche” (50 years of Porsche) is present on the two rear windows.

With all the options, this unique model cost 327,671.67 DM (167 ,535.86 Euros)

This incredible Porsche 993 turbo only has 10,997 km from new. After being delivered new to Clauss Vanderborg, the latter kept it for a short time. In 1999, it was then sold and delivered to a collector in Japan.

History

1998 was an important year for Porsche AG and in particular for the 911. The production of the air-cooled Porsche 911 Type 993 was due to end in March 1998, to make way for the new production lines of the new air-cooled Porsche 911 Type 996 by water. The Porsche 993s had proven to be very popular, with more than 68,000 produced.

The last official Porsche 993 to leave the Zuffenhausen assembly lines on March 31, 1998 was the one ordered and purchased by American comedian and Porsche collector Jerry Seinfeld: a Porsche 993 4S in Mexico Blue. But in reality, it was not the last Porsche 993 delivered…

The Type 993 is the last Porsche model to be air-cooled, marking a major turning point in the history of Porsche.

The Porsche 911 Type 996 has become one of the most popular Porsche to date with a very large number of models produced until 2005: 175,262 copies.

1998 was a very difficult year according to certain testimonies from the teams of the Marketing department.

In addition, Porsche celebrated its 50th anniversary on June 10, 1998 and preparations for events all over the world were underway to celebrate this event.

Preparations for these celebrations were turned upside down 74 days before the anniversary by the death of Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche (Ferry) on March 27, 1998. He had taken over the reins of Porsche on the death of his father in 1951 and had been chairman until when he retired in 1989. He was still considered a “Father” by many Porsche employees.
