993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998 (model years 1995-1998 in the United States), replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches, with the 993 being not just the last air-cooled 911, but also the last of the hand built 911s.
The 993 generation of the 911 is often referred to as the best and most desirable of the 911 series, not only because of its beauty, but also because its performance is very good, even by modern standards, and the 993 was «the last complete ‘modern classic’»; «the 993 was and forever will be that last fresh breath of air that Porsche gave the world; elegance and muscle all in one package. The Carrera 4 S (1996) and later rear wheel drive Carrera S (1997) shared the Turbo model’s bodyshell, but housed the naturally aspirated Carrera engine in the rear. The 4S came with four-wheel drive, whereas the S (sometimes referred to as C2S) was rear wheel drive. Both S models had slightly lowered suspension compared to standard Carrera models.
This lovely example in silver with black leather interior comes with sports electric seats and a sunroof. Its 18 inch wheels secure this car’s looks amongst the very best of this marque. These models are fast becoming much sought after this particular example is surely one of the best around.
