History

A stunning colour for the wide bodied Carrera 4S and a beautifully preserved example of such: This "Arena Red" 4S was originally delivered in 1996 by Porsche of North America to Continental Motors of Fairfield, Connecticut. In 2000 it was sold to Weston with a mileage of 19185 and five years later lived in California from where it was exported to Denmark where it now resides. 

The car still presents absolutely beautifully and its condition inside and out is in every detail as fine as its low milage would suggest. In short: A really great example of the 4S.

Option codes:CO2, 329, 445, 454, 490, 850

About the model:

The 993 generation is often said to be the best and most desirable 911, as much due to its unrivalled road-holding qualities as to its beauty. Porsche itself refers to the model as significant progress, both technically and visually. Consequently, it is nicknamed “the purists’ Holy Grail”.

The 993 is not only the last air-cooled 911, it is the first with a 6-speed, manual transmission. The car has been given many improvements and is very different from its predecessor.

The entire engine is completely new, reusing only 20% of the components from the 964. It has a newly designed aluminium chassis with wishbone multi-link suspension, eliminating the previous models’ tendency to oversteer.

Contrary to the Porsche 993 Carrera, the Carrera 4S was produced in relatively small numbers. This is one of the reasons why the Carrera 4S often costs more today than the other 993 models. A total of 6,948 units of the Carrera 4S were produced, approximately 10% of the total units manufactured.
