It was the most substantial redesign of the 911 since its inception and improved on virtually every system throughout the car. The 993 generation carried only 20% of shared parts with its predecessors and was the first 911 to feature a 6-speed gearbox. Handling was vastly improved thanks in part to the new all-alloy multi-link suspension and light alloy subframe, and road noise was vastly reduced with the new suspension system. Additionally, the car’s ergonomics, braking, and air conditioning were improved and a completely redesigned engine meant that the 993 was one of the most civilized and capable 911s to date.

Porsche began producing the coupe models in a turbo-look wide-body form. First was the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S produced between 1996 and 1998 with a total production of approximately 7,000 units. These models employed the Turbo’s wide body shell with its massive fenders along and many of the Turbo’s accoutrements, but with the 285 horsepower, 3.6-liter Variocam, M64 twin-plug engine residing in place of the twin-turbocharged version and available only with a 6-speed manual transmission. Lower suspension, a solid-spoked version of the striking 18×8 and 10-inch Turbo Twist wheels, and red four-piston calipers with 322mm discs front and rear added to the aggressive appearance of the S models.

This three-owner example has been well cared for by each of its owners and presents in excellent condition inside and out. It was configured with Glacier White paintwork with supple leather Cashmere leather seats with black carpeting, the optional power seat package, motor sound package and Hi-Fi sound package with 6 disc CD changer. It also received the optional Dark Burr Maple steering wheel, the dark wood and aluminum shift knob and brake handle, metal door sills with Carrera 4S insignias, the Porsche crest embossed into the headrests, floor mats with the Porsche script.

This example of the 993 Carrera 4S is the perfect blend of modern and classic and, in a timeless color combination that makes it the perfect 911 for any occasion.
