The extremely well known and versatile Porsche 911 has been a top-choice for sports car enthusiasts since its launch in the early 60’s. The arrival of the 993 in 1995 represented the pinnacle of the classic 911 formula’s evolution, with only 20% of its parts carried over from the previous 964 generation. The most notable and applauded change to the 993 was the addition of a multi-link suspension, an update which drastically changed the driving characteristics of the 911. The 993 made the well known sports car much more accessible, and less snappy at the limit. Porsche had already offered all wheel drive (AWD) versions of the 964, but the 993 was now offered with a power upgrade (hence the ‘S’ badging) as well as AWD. The 4S variant, with its 3.6L, 282hp motor, intelligent AWD, 6spd manual transmission, and wider stance, would become an immediately desirable iteration and has only become more prized since.
This 1997 Porsche 911 C4S is a good, driver-quality example, with minor cosmetic chips on the nose from normal use. The interior is in excellent condition, with minimal wear and tear on the optional sport seats’ bolsters. The vehicle is mechanically sound, with regular engine services and oil changes performed, and will be delivered with service current.
Options include a hi-fi surround system with 10 speakers powered by a Dolby head unit and carbon fiber shift knob and brake handle. Options of particular note include the sport seats and Aerokit: the Aerokit added more aggressive visual cues such as the Turbo-esque rear spoiler, and extenuated front intakes and splitter.
This car is accompanied by full documentation as well as a factory-supplied Porsche tool kit, and needs nothing except an enthusiastic new caretaker.
