Sitting near the top of the 993-generation hierarchy, Porsche’s 911 Turbo S was introduced as the first-ever model of its kind in 1997. The basic facts can look a bit dry; Type 993, 450 bhp, 3605cc air-cooled flat six-cylinder engine with twin turbochargers and electronic fuel injection, six-speed manual transaxle, front and rear independent suspension with coil springs, and four-wheel ventilated steel disc brakes, however, the Turbo S was a big step up over the standard 911 Turbo in terms of performance and price. Headlined by a 0–60 mph time of 3.6 seconds, the Turbo S could hit 100 mph from a standstill in 8.9 seconds, only half a second faster than the standard Turbo. But that didn't matter, the Turbo S was special and getting your name on the waiting list to buy one was nigh on impossible unless you were very closely related to a Dealer Principal. All 345 examples of the 993 Turbo S were built by Porsche’s Exclusive department and the specification included a number of unique features when compared to other 911s of the period. The car sported yellow brake callipers, a unique rear spoiler, polished five-spoke Turbo S wheels, an 'Aerokit' front spoiler, an air intake in the rear wings, and four exhaust pipes at the rear. Inside, the 911 Turbo S luxuriated in carbon fibre trim contrasting with the softest of leathers and provided the type of luxury that customers had come to know and love from Porsche’s top-shelf models.

This, ‘C16’ UK-supplied, right-hand drive, Turbo S is one of only 26 and has covered just 29,097 miles from new. Supplied with two sets of keys, service book, manuals and reams of invoices this special car will reward any inspection.

This car has formed part of a significant collection for the past few years. In preparation for the sale, the engine will be flushed, filled with fresh oil and a new filter fitted, the fuel tank drained, flushed and filled with 20 litres of fuel, fitted with a new battery and issued with a fresh MOT Certificate. A safety check will also be carried out along with an inspection report included in the history file.

As one of the last air-cooled 911s, the Turbo S is one of the most powerful models to have worn the 911 moniker and as a result makes it hugely desirable and collectable.
