The 993 was the final generation of the air-cooled 911 manufactured and sold between January 1994 and early 1998 and, as such, will always have a special place in the affections of Porsche enthusiasts. It is also widely said to be the last of the 911s that were built whilst engineering integrity overruled accounting pressures at Porsche. 20 years on, it still looks modern, a truly timeless design.
When it arrived, the 993 Carrera 4 featuring the all-new, four-wheel-drive system met with worldwide acclaim and these cars are still revered for great performance and sure-footed handling. Boasting the wider bodywork of the Turbo with Turbo suspension, brakes and Turbo-look wheels, the Carrera 4S hit a sweet spot with many enthusiasts, combining the reliable and economical 282bhp Carrera S engine with the dramatic presence of the Turbo along with the added practicality and confidence of four-wheel drive.
This superb, manual gearbox, left-hand drive Carrera 4S presents very well with metallic silver paintwork and a black leather interior. We are informed that 40,000km was showing on the odometer at the time of cataloguing and we believe the car was delivered new to the KSA.
Representing the end of an era for the 911, the 993-generation is considered to be one of the most desirable variants of the model and has achieved exceptional collectable status not only for its place in Porsche history but for its overall reliability and usability. Whilst the high-horsepower models are often found preserved in collections, the slightly more pedestrian models were generally put into regular use by their first owners and consequently, two decades after production officially ended, finding a low-mileage and well-preserved Carrera S or 4S can be difficult. As such, this C4S warrants serious attention.
