Since the introduction of the "S" (Sport) model 911 in 1967, this
letter has represented the highest performance of the 911. Unlike
today's production numbers, the Turbo S was Porsche Exclusive
Department's most exclusive reserve. Exclusive director Rolf
Sprenger first affixed an S to a Turbo in 1991, and other 964
variants followed, leaving us with some of the most rare and
collectible 911s on the planet. Then after a long wait, Porsche
Exclusive elevated the 993 Turbo, slapping an "S" on the engine
lid, applying all its best tricks and improvements, and last
iteration of the air-cooled Turbo S was born. With about 40 more
horsepower than its 993 little brother, and with better suspension
and aerodynamic tweaks, it raced to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds.
To make this phenomenal responsive driving experience even more
exclusive, Porsche limited production to only 345 units. To date,
this model consistently lands in the top five driving experiences
for many Porsche enthusiasts. And it's the last of an era when the
Turbo S was special.
In its timeless Black over Tan color combination, this 22-year old
has had only two owners. It shows few signs of wear and tear and
has accumulated only 25,000. Complete with the comfort of its
supple leather, it is a compelling example for a badass
daily-driver or the occasional sprint out to a favorite getaway
We all know the Turbo market ramped up a few years back, and then
perhaps endured the biggest market correction for Porsches.
Surviving a "plateau", so-to-speak, over the last couple of years,
the 993 Turbo S is again trending in the right direction. Obviously
being part of a limited production run and the last of air-cooled
generation helps, but those of us who have driven and owned a '97
Turbo S understand its importance and why it will always remain in
the top tier of coveted 911s.
