Is the 993 the pinnacle of the 911 series? Many think so. The 993 is so popular not only because it is the last of the air-cooled 911s, but also because the 993 combines a classic body with modern performance and handling. The best of both worlds.
Within the 993 line-up, the Carrera S (also known as the Carrera 2S) is the version you want. Not because it is the fastest or rarest version, but because the Carrera S combines the best components. This version has the wide body of the Turbo, but with rear-wheel drive only. In addition, lighter than a 4S, so also slightly faster.
This example is specced in the chic color Ozeanblau with a Night Blue interior and equipped with a manual gearbox, which completes the picture. There is less than a ton on the clock and the car is still in excellent condition.
The 993 Carrera S also distinguishes itself visually with the split and painted air grille on the spoiler. The increased track width and the lowered chassis ensure that the Carrera S has a slightly better road holding than the regular Carrera. The Carrera (2) S was lowered by 10mm at the front and 20mm at the rear. Together with the 60 mm wider body, this creates an impressive rear view. Or, to put it a bit more blunt: a nice ass.
The air-cooled boxer six-cylinder from the Carrera S produces 285 hp and 340 Nm of torque. The 993 Carrera S sprints to 100 km / h in 5.4 seconds. The top speed is 270 km / h. Still pretty good in today's standards.
The Carrera S is quite a rare car, partly due to the fact that this version was only in production for two years. Of the 68,029 Porsche 993's that rolled off the assembly line, only 3,714 were a Carrera S. This is one of the reasons that this is a highly sought after car. A large part of this was equipped with Tiptronic automatic transmission, so that makes this 993 Carrera S with manual transmission even rarer!
