For Sale: 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S in Stratford, Connecticut

Vehicle Description

  • The Porsche 993 represents a sweet spot in the sports car area, balancing an analog driving feel with modern conveniences in a way that few other cars have been able to accomplish. Immediately after production started, both the public and critics fell in love with the new iteration of the 911, and adoration for the 993 only continued to grow as years went on. While the base 911s were adored for their phenomenal handling characteristics and snappy acceleration, the Carrera 4S (and its RWD counterpart) raised the bar. The C4S shares the same bodywork as the 993 Turbo, with wide fender flares and more aggressive styling. The massive rear hips housed wider wheels, which improved handling on an already fantastic platform. Towards the end of the 993’s life cycle, it became apparent that the 993 was something special. With the new 996 chassis, Porsche announced the 911 would no longer feature an air-cooled engine. Porsche enthusiasts immediately began praising the 993 as the last air-cooled Porsche 911 and went on to call it the “the last complete ‘modern classic’” and “the purists’ Holy Grail.” The 993, almost immediately, became the Porsche that every collector had to have as it was clear that no car would be able to compare. It was a modern classic and the end of a long line of air-cooled Porsche sports cars; it was a joy to drive both on track and to the office.

    This Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is a pristine example of the 993 chassis. Showing just 19,554 original miles, this car looks and performs as expected of a brand new car. This 911 is finished in Polar Silver over black leather interior, a classic and timeless Porsche color combination, and comes equipped with highly desirable factory competition seats. A factory-installed protective film has protected the paint from new, keeping it free of rock chips and road wear. Behind the wheel, it becomes immediately apparent why people fell in love with this chassis. It drives flawlessly, giving the driver a sense of being truly connected with the road. The C4S is a modern classic becoming more and more desirable, remaining the most balanced and powerful of all the air-cooled 911s. This C4S comes with extensive documentation from new.
