This 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera beckons the discerning enthusiast - one who appreciates not just performance but the purity of the air-cooled lineage and the timeless elegance that only a 911 can possess.

This stunning 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S coupe was acquired by the current owner in 2000, and it now shows just 25k miles. Finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and equipped with the optional Motor Sound Package, headlight washers, fog lights, power-adjustable mirrors, a power-operated sunroof, a speed-activated rear spoiler, and dual exhaust outlets. Braking is handled by Porsche-branded calipers over cross-drilled rotors at all four corners. The cabin features power-adjustable front seats upholstered in black leather and complemented by a color-coordinated center console, door panels, and carpeting. Amenities include a CD stereo, a Hi-Fi sound system, cruise control, and air conditioning.

This isn't your average 911. This is a rare C2S, a factory widebody masterpiece boasting the iconic air-cooled flat-six engine that Porsche perfected over decades. True Porsche aficionados understand the pure driving experience offered by a manual transmission. For a car like the C2S, known for its performance, a manual gearbox truly makes this a vehicle meant to be enjoyed through every curve. And with only 25,318 miles from new, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the true pureness that only a rear-wheel drive sports car can offer. Driven sparingly during its past ownerships, this C2S has always been cared for and serviced appropriately to keep it in its current outstanding condition and ready to be immediately enjoyed.

Produced for only two short years, the 1997 C2S is the embodiment of the last air-cooled 911s. This particular example is a true driver's delight, featuring a 3.6L twin-cam powerhouse mated to a precise manual transmission. Imagine the exhilarating surge of power, the intoxicating symphony of the flat-six engine, and the pure, unadulterated connection between driver and machine.

While this Porsche offers classic performance, it benefits from modern care. The vehicle has been maintained to the highest standards and recently received a comprehensive service inspection by factory-trained technicians from Becks European in Scottsdale, AZ. This ensures a taut, responsive driving experience, while also giving you the confidence and peace of mind to push this legend to its limits.

Upon arrival at Canepa, every vehicle goes through a process called the Canepa Difference where the car is personally inspected and road-tested by Bruce Canepa. Bruce was amazed by the sheer sleek beauty of this 993 C2S and how well preserved mechanically the car was. After a complete inspection, including any necessary service, the C2S only required a light cleaning and minor detail, which was performed by our Concours winning detail team. This pristine 993 C2S is truly a superlative Porsche.
