EXTERIOR
Supplied new in a deep and menacing shade of Solid Black, this rare Turbo S is in outstanding condition from bonnet to boot. It’s wide arches, turbo scoops and twin rear spoiler give away that this is no ordinary 993 Turbo. The paintwork retains a dazzling lustre, free from any visible blemishes due to the Turbo’s extraordinarily low mileage.

In superb condition the paintwork echos that of the rest of the exterior with lights, trim and badges all in excellent condition showing minimal wear over its life.

INTERIOR
The interior is finished is soft black leather combined with a generous helping of carbon fibre trim. Open either door and you’re met with a brushed aluminium sill plate with its Turbo S designation proudly on display. The electric hard back sports seats are in great condition and provide comfort for cruising but equally as supportive when pushing on. They are upholstered in supple black leather, which shows just minor creasing on the drivers side, whilst the rear seats appear to have never been used.

Considering the car was produced in 1998 the extensive use of carbon fibre is extraordinary, adorning both door cards, much of the dash, parts of the steering wheel, gearknob and handbrake lever while neatly surrounded by stitched black leather where appropriate. The cabin has a quintessential executive feel and presents very well, with almost no noticeable signs of wear throughout, its clear that this is a very well cherished example.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 993 Turbo S was the last road-going air cooled car ever to be produced by Porsche so its no wonder they decided to go out with a bang. Producing 450hp with the help of some up-rated Turbos and a twin exhaust system the Turbo S is potent; hitting 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and topping out at 187 mph it’s still considered hugely fast over 20 years on.

On inspection the mighty twin turbo power plant seems almost compacted into the rear of this 993, very much in hiding beneath its large Intercooler which dominates the upper engine compartment. Now onto its 2nd service book after the first one was completely filled with stamps, it’s no surprise this example runs and drives as good as it looks.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 18 inch hollow spoke alloy wheels are finished in their correct Turbo S colour and hide model specific yellow 6 pot brembo calipers. All of the wheels remain in excellent condition with no scuff marks.

Tyres are Bridgestone Potenzas as per factory guidelines, Porsche N rated with good, even tread all round.
