Introduced in 1994, Porsche’s 993 model was the last iteration of the classic 911, which drew from the original 1964 design. Emissions and output requirements meant that the new 911 would need to be water-cooled, and necessarily a completely different design. Thus, 1998 examples of the 993 models, such as this incredible Carrera S, are the last in the lineage of the world’s best-known sports car. 1998 Carrera S models are quite rare, with Porsche having produced, fittingly, just 993 of them.

This stunning example was sold new by Beechmont Porsche in Cincinnati, Ohio to local enthusiast Robert Goldman. The Carrera S was equipped with the desirable motor sound package and limited slip differential, along with 18" technology wheels, eight-way electric seats, a sunroof, 6-disc CD changer, and Hi-Fi sound.

Acquired by the consignor in 2008 with 33,481 miles on the odometer, it has remained in his esteemed collection of sports cars. A pre-purchase inspection report prepared by ImagineAuto, Inc. in 2008, which is included in the file for review, noted its healthy engine leakdown and compression numbers at that time, and that the paint and interior appeared to be original. This report states, “Car’s overall rating is 9.5 out of 10. The car appears to be in very good overall shape and very original.”

Offered with its original manuals, stamped warranty booklet, tool kit, air compressor, and service records, this 993 is a very rare find. Equipped with desirable options, finished in uncommon colors, and having been sparingly used, this Carrera S is an outstanding representation of the last model in the long line of legendary air-cooled 911s.
