For the 1996 model year, Porsche introduced the Carrera 4S, a 993 variant that combined the naturally aspirated power train of the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 with the curvaceous wide-body shell of the Turbo.
Originally retailed in September 1996 through Porsche Ontario in Glendora, California, this Carrera 4S is tastefully finished in Grand Prix White over a Cashmere leather interior. Factory options include the power-seat package, 10-speaker sound system, Blaupunkt radio, CD changer, rootwood shift knob, and Motorsound package, while the rarely seen body-color wheels recall the look of the legendary 959 supercar. Showing just 12,815 miles on its odometer when catalogued, this pristine Porsche is stated to have been driven extremely sparingly – approximately 500 miles per year – throughout its 25 years in single family ownership. Regularly serviced and recently treated to a concours-level detailing by Canepa Motorsports in Scotts Valley, California, this 993 was recently acquired by its current custodian, a private collector with a significant stable of air-cooled Porsches.
Commensurate with its mileage and history, this C4S presents in impeccable, well-preserved condition throughout, and is accompanied by books, tools, air compressor, spare, and maintenance records. Discerning collectors should consider this sale an opportunity to acquire what is surely among the finest surviving examples of a rare and desirable 993 variant.
