There’s a lot to love about the Porsche 993, especially the limited-run Turbo S from 1997. For one, the 3.6-liter turbocharged flat-six engine pumps out an extra 40-horsepower, making it a little quicker than its Turbo sibling. Improved aero and suspension heightened performance further, so this car is truly worthy of the “S” on the rear.
This particular car looks sophisticated yet menacing with a silky black exterior and factory treatments. That includes the original wheels in excellent condition, plus badging and that iconic 993 Turbo rear wing that’s a calling card to enthusiasts. If you look closely, yellow brake calipers and cross-drilled rotors peek out from behind the wheels.
Inside is a well-preserved two-tone black and tan color scheme. The dash is free of damage, as are the soft leather seats. Factory details like the gauges, steering wheel, and shifter carefully preserve this classic Porsche. On the odometer is a mere 25,000 miles and this car has only had two owners, who both obviously valued this vehicle highly.
Ultimately, a mere 345 1997 Turbo S models were made. As you can imagine, each one is now considered highly collectible.
