In 1998, the Porsche 993 would see its production run come to an end and the last iteration of the air-cooled 911 before the introduction of the new 996. This special C2S was one of those last production cars, one of 993 C2S' made for the U.S. market in 1998. Known for their exceptional driving characteristics, the S benefited from the Turbo's wider track in the rear but without the bulk of the all-wheel drive system. Paired with a manual 6-speed transmission, the purist C2S' are a delight to drive, and reward their drivers every time the 3.6 liter flat six engine is revved out.

First sold in California on January 28th of 1998, the car came with multiple added options including touring suspension, engine sound package, Comfort leather seats, full aero kit as well as stainless steel door entry guards and AM/FM Radio with CD Player with anti-theft coding. The first owner would keep the car for almost 6 years and add a little less than 2,900 miles per year. The second owner of the C2S purchased the car on October 5th, 2005 and would keep the car for close to 4 years, adding less than 1,200 miles during that time.

The C2S would then be sold to its next owner on April 14th, 2009. During his almost 7-year ownership, he would only add just 1,500 miles to the odometer and have $7,300 worth of maintenance performed at Porsche of San Diego on October 31st of 2015. On March 17th, 2016, the C2S was purchased by its next caretaker, who would add less than 200 miles during his ownership.

When the C2S first arrived at Canepa in 2018, it was thoroughly inspected and looked over. It received a comprehensive mechanical inspection, and was appropriately serviced. The C2S was then put through our rigorous detailing process, with the total invoice coming to $11,620. The 911 was then delivered to its new owner, who has since added 65 miles during his ownership.

Most recently repurchased by ourselves, the 911 C2S was placed into Canepa's system and received the "Canepa Difference" process to prepare it for sale. This includes a full mechanical inspection, service and show-quality detail. Found to be still in excellent mechanical shape and driving wonderfully, the car was signed off with a clean bill of health. Now is your opportunity to own one of the last production air-cooled 911s, and arguably one of the best driving 993 iterations ever made.
