Widely regarded as one of Porsche’s major design triumphs, the wide bodied C4S has been much admired among converted enthusiasts and motoring journalists alike, here, in its very best incarnation, a six-speed manual coupe. Superbly proportioned from almost every angle, low slung, with steeply raked windscreen, swollen rear haunches and full width red reflector, subtly displaying the Porsche script to all that follow.
The familiar, driver focussed cabin of the 993 4S offers both functionality and practical comfort. Bi-coloured leather in deep blue with lighter grey detail lifts the mood, and being such a very low mileage example, remains in an extremely fine conditional overall. Hard back sports seats display the Porsche script, while being supportive and electrically adjustable. This example benefits from an electric steel sliding sunroof with air conditioning installed from factory. The carpets have been totally protected from wear, not only by the original light grey floor mats, but also an additional set with Porsche detail. Headlining and rear seats appear unmarked.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE
Original Lux Spec, C16, UK supplied model, with just 18,665 miles and two owners from new, the last since 1998. The glorious Turbo wide body houses the notorious M64/21 flat six, Varioram 12v coupled to the 6-speed manual gearbox. Start-up is effortless and without issue, settling swiftly to a steady idle with no hunting or surging. Once on the move, every journey feels like a very special occasion, with taut slick gear changes, a positive clutch feel, superbly balanced steering and urgent free revving power delivery.
Unlike the Carrera 2S, the 4S benefits from the same brakes and suspension as the Turbo. Speed is dissipated with ease via the 4 piston calipers front and rear and 322mm ventilated / cross-drilled discs all round. Permanent all wheel drive with LSD, instil a confidence and sure-footedness, while surface imperfections are absorbed effectively. With 285 bhp to explore, 0-60 mph times of approx 5.2 sec, and a top speed in the region of 168mph, this ultra low mileage, low owner, low volume Porsche 993 must surely be worthy of serious consideration by both collector and enthusiast alike.
