A Record Setting $229,000 Porsche 993 Carrera S
PCarMarket just set what is probably an all-time sales record for a 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S with a sale of $229,000. As you might imagine this is not your run-of-the-mill 993. It is an 11,000-mile Conocours-quality Porsche with rare factory specifications. Surprisingly, the new owner vows to drive it even though every mile will diminish its value. Complete details are here.
This 1998 993 S Carreras were the last year of the air-cooled Porsches and featured the wide bodywork of the Turbo model with rear-wheel drive. This 19998 model is finished in Black over a black leather interior. This example features such highly desirable options as the Aerokit Turbo II spoilers, the Aluminum/Chrome package, 18” hollow-spoke wheels, red painted brake calipers, Racing Style Sport Seats with deviated stitching, limited-slip differential and a shifter, handbrake lever, and steering wheel trimmed in carbon fiber.
