993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998, replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches.
The external design of the Porsche 993, penned by Englishman Toni Hatter, retained the basic bodyshell architecture of the 964 and other earlier 911 models, but with revised external panels, with much more flared wheelarches and a smoother front and rear bumper design, an enlarged retractable rear wing, teardrop mirrors, but keeping the doors and roof panels.
The Carrera 4 S and later Carrera S shared the Turbo model’s bodyshell, but housed the naturally aspirated Carrera engine in the rear. The 4S came with four-wheel drive, and retained the Turbo model’s larger brake discs with the characteristic red calipers. It could be described as a “Turbo without the turbochargers and rear wing”, whereas the S was in all aspects a standard Carrera underneath (the wider rear fenders were compensated with 31 mm (1.2 in) wheel spacers). Both S models had slightly lowered suspension compared to standard Carrera models. Although a Carrera S Cabriolet was never officially offered by the factory, a small number (believed to be 5) were special ordered through the Porsche Exclusive department in 1997 and sold as 1998 models by Beverly Hills Porsche in California.
This superb example finished in blue with grey interior is described by the vendor to be in excellent order throughout. The car has had only 2 owners from new and comes with a full service record. It also benefits from a recent service with Porsche, when it was fitted with new brakes. These four wheel drive models of this iconic marque provides terrific performance which can be delivered in anger on the road or gently whilst in a City. These are highly versatile sports cars and now much sought after. Stunning!
