Description

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Monterey event, 15 - 17 August 2024.

  • Highly coveted 993-generation 911 model with wider bodywork, naturally aspirated air-cooled engine, and four-wheel drive
  • Featuring just shy of $20,000 of factory options including extended leather, Aerokit, Racing Style Sports Seats, and Sports Suspension
  • Offered from the White Collection showing 12,757 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloguing
  • Finished in Glacier White over a Black leather interior

For many Porsche enthusiasts, the 911 Carrera 4S represented the sweet spot of the 993-era model range. Wearing the wider bodywork of that 911 generation’s Turbo, and with a lower stance than the standard Carrera, the 4S was easy on the eye to the point that it drew acclaim for its timeless styling. Porsche engineered the Carrera 4S with four-wheel-drive capabilities for traction on slippery surfaces and improved handling—a technologically advanced feature for its time—while the sleek coupe is one of the last to be powered by the marque’s famous air-cooled flat-six.

Offered out of the legendary White Collection, this 911 Carrera 4S coupe is an exceptional example of a Type 993 Porsche with an immense list of desirable options and only 12,757 miles present on the odometer at the time of cataloguing. Finished in Glacier White over a Black leather interior, the high-performance nature of this 911 is bolstered by the inclusion of the Aerokit front and rear spoilers, engine sound package, stainless steel exhaust pipes, and sport suspension. The interior space additionally maintains the vehicle’s sporting intentions while including heightened levels of luxury: Entering the cabin over metal sill plates, the occupants are treated to extended leather across the dashboard complemented by a leather-covered transmission tunnel and switch panel. Racing-style sport seats provide maximum support. An aluminum and leather shift knob is matched by aluminum-look gauges with metal rings. Lastly, a Hi-Fi stereo system with a remote CD changer completes the nearly $20,000 list of factory options.

Acquired in 2010 by the White Collection, the car will be accompanied by a collection of invoices detailing the service work performed over the decades. Additionally, a leather manual pouch, tool roll, and tire inflation kit will join this Porsche upon purchase.

Representing the end of an era for the 911, cars from the 993 generation are considered to be among the most desirable variants of the model, with this attractively specified Carrera 4S proving to be no exception.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/auctions/mo24/.
