Sitting near the top of the 993-generation hierarchy, Porsche’s 911 Turbo S was introduced as the first-ever model of its kind in 1997. The basic facts can look a bit dry; Type 993, 450 bhp, 3605cc air-cooled flat six-cylinder engine with twin turbochargers and electronic fuel injection, six-speed manual transaxle, front and rear independent suspension with coil springs, and four-wheel ventilated steel disc brakes, however, the Turbo S was a big step up over the standard 911 Turbo in terms of performance and price. Headlined by a 0–60 mph time of 3.6 seconds, the Turbo S could hit 100 mph from a standstill in 8.9 seconds, only half a second faster than the standard Turbo. But that didn't matter, the Turbo S was special and getting your name on the waiting list to buy one was nigh on impossible unless you were very closely related to a Dealer Principal. All 345 examples of the 993 Turbo S were built by Porsche’s Exclusive department and the specification included a number of unique features when compared to other 911s of the period. The car sported yellow brake callipers, a unique rear spoiler, polished five-spoke Turbo S wheels, an Aerokit front spoiler, an air intake in the rear wings, and four exhaust pipes at the rear. Inside, the 911 Turbo S  luxuriated in carbon fibre trim contrasting with the softest of leathers and provided the type of luxury that customers had come to know and love from Porsche’s top-shelf models.We are pleased to offer this super rare ‘C16’ right-hand drive UK-supplied Porsche 911 (993) Turbo S, one of only 26 delivered in this configuration. Supplied new through Porsche Wilmslow on 16th March 1998, this striking car is finished in Pastel Yellow (colour code: Q1Q1) with a full black leather interior which includes touches of carbon fibre in the cabin. Optional equipment included sports seats, top tinted windscreen and a sunroof. This car has been well-serviced over the years, with the service book (a replacement) having been stamped 15 times, all by Official Porsche Centres, with all but 2 services having been carried out at the supplying dealer. There are multiple invoices included in the history file which document the works at each interval, with the most recent service having been done in November ’17, some 126 miles ago. Now showing 71,163 miles on the odometer, this car is supplied with its book pack, manuals, a UK V5c and MoT tested until 3rd July 2019. Our vendor has owned this beautiful car for 16 years, and with infrequent use recently he has decided that it's time to offer this rarity for sale. As one of the last air-cooled  911s, the Turbo S is one of the most powerful models to have worn the 911 moniker and as a result makes it hugely desirable and collectable. Of the 26 UK-supplied Turbo S models produced, there can’t have been many in Pastel Yellow, and we urge you to come and view this rarity in person.
