1995 Audi S6 Avant

After living in New England for a few years, one thing is certain. The folks in that region love their Audi Quattros. Along with Saabs (RIP) and Subarus, these cars rule the roads. Last week, Carter featured a Tornado Red S6 Avant and now here comes another one with a little more mileage for sale in Connecticut. If it’s speed, practicality and all-weather capability you’re after, fewer vehicles offer such a balanced combination than this 20 valve beast. Many thanks to our reader Zac at Classic Car Club Manhattan for bringing this S6 to our attention!

I’m sad to hear the reasoning behind the seller wanting to offload this car. I understand that sometimes people just want an easier car to drive. Hopefully cars getting offloaded like this can find good homes with enthusiasts who will look after them. Besides the RS2 and current S5 Coupe, these C4 S6 Avants are one of my favorite fast Audis. The S6 we featured last week gained a lot of interest rather quickly at $6,900. If this car is mechanically sound as is described and is truly rust free, it’s a good deal at $5,900. As Carter alluded to last week, at these prices, you aren’t going to get much in the way of mint condition performance from Mercedes-Benz or BMW these days.

Convertible Week: 1995 Porsche 993 C4 Cabriolet

Timeless doesn’t begin to describe the looks of the 911 no matter the generation and this 993 is certainly no exception. In the Porsche lineup, the 993 is the sweet spot as far as I’m concerned. The 993 is the highest evolution of the air-cooled cars and the 3.6 liter boxer six pushed the C4 to 60 in 5.7 seconds (5.2 for the C2) and topped out at 168 mph. Not too bad for a six cylinder. The 993 was the last car before the “ugly years” as I like to call them, when Porsche gave the 911 one of the worst face lifts it had ever had. Which ever generation you prefer, this low mileage 993 C4 for sale in Springfield, Missouri is a cool nice weather cruiser.

Wow, what a cool looking car! Corners and looks like a slot car! So much fun it ought to be against the law! Just serviced and passed a 100 point PPI inspection. Just in time for the sun to come out. Buy it! You’ll love it. Money isn’t worth anything unless you spend it. Will trade.

This is a beautiful low mileage car with great mods. Gemballa is one of my favorite Porsche tuners, even though their stuff tends to be on the wild side. That said, I’m not sure where the $56K price tag is coming from. With a top dollar retail value of $45K, I don’t see where the other $10K is coming from. The modifications could add about $5K, but all in all I feel this is a $47,000 car all day long. With less than two days left on the auction, I’ll be curious to see if anyone bites.

1994 Audi S4

In the early 1990’s, Audi was shaking up their line up and introduced the S4 in 1991 as the performance version of the 100 sedan. Despite sharing its basic structure with the 100, the S4 was intended to take the place of the the discontinued 200 Turbo-Quattro sedan. It wasn’t until the next model year (as always) that the US saw the UrS4. The S4 featured a turbocharged 2.2 L, 20-valve inline 5-cylinder engine that made 227 hp and 258 ft/lb of torque. Standard equipment included Quattro all-wheel-drive and a manual transmission.

After Audi dropped the 100 nameplate and re-badged the car as A6 in 1994, the S4 became the S6, although the only changes to the model were minor cosmetic. It wasn’t until 2001 that the S4 came back as its own model based on the relatively new A4 platform.

driversside

1994 Audi S4, very rare blue color, only 500 or so of these made for that year and in blue color I don’t even know how many were made. Clean title, clean Carfax, no accidents! This car is in excellent condition for a 1994. The body is free from any major dents or dings just a couple minor door dings. The interior is clean, the leather does not have any rips in it and has held up well over the years. The dash does not have any cracking or fading and all the wood trim is intact also without any issues. Everything in this car works from the headlights to the taillights. All windows function properly and everything locks properly as well including the keyless entry. Everything on this car is all original no modifications whatsoever and no pieces missing except for the magazine for the CD changer. The car runs great the turbo spools nicely without any hesitation and it feels very strong along with the clutch which also grabs strong and has no grinds or popouts. Brakes still have about 70% life remaining along with the tires which are also about 70% remaining. If you would like some more pictures please send me your email and i will get them to you thank you.

Normal flaws for this car include:

Splintering in paint on the hood only (hard to show in pictures)
Wear on driver seat bolster nothing serious just regular wear and tear over the years.
Low windshield washer fluid warning light is always on unless completely filled to top

Timing belt was done at around 110k but unfortunately, I do not have receipts for this car. It was my stepfathers and it was meticulously maintained anything that was ever wrong with it was taken care of right away that is why it is in such good condition the way it sits today.

While not the most pristine UrS4 I’ve seen, this could be a great project for someone looking to put a little elbow grease in to it. The blue over ecru leater is a great combination and a nice departure from the green cars that seem to have flooded the S4 market. The maintenance history is one of the only things that would concern me about this car. Without documentation, it’s is tough to discern that the T-belt was done 50K miles ago, as well as other issues. That aside, this car would be a good solid buy at $5,000 to $6,000.

1995.5 Audi S6 Avant

The last of the UR cars, the 1995.5 UrS6 kicked off a five year hiatus for Audi’s S program in the US and could well be one of the last great S6 Avants sold stateside. Yes, I know what you might be thinking, “what about the C5 S6 with the 340 hp 4.2L V8?”  While a great car in its own right, the C5 misses the mark of the C4 UrS6 by a long shot. The most glaring shortcoming of the C5 is the Audi tiptronic slushbox. Add in the C4’s tunability and reliability, and it’s no wonder these are one of the most sought after Audis on the market. This clean S6 in Emerald green over Ecru leather is a great chance to own the last of the great Ur cars.

Year: 1995.5
Model: S6 Avant
Engine: 2.2 liter turbo inline five
Transmission: 5-speed manual

1995.5 Audi S6 Avant on Craigslist Denver

3ne3I73H45G55K35M9d1lb080e29d29991c6e

1995.5 UR S6 Avant. 1 of 300 produced. This is a one owner car. Car has stock Avus wheels and a set of winter wheels and tires. Car has always been garaged. Third row seat. new timing belt and water pump at 126,000.

While the description of this car is vague at best, the $8,750 price tag leads me to believe that this car is pushing 200K miles. Even at that mileage, this car appears to be a clean, and well cared for example. The tan leather looks almost new in the pictures and the paint shows well for being 18 years old. For anyone within driving distance to Golden, Colorado, it’s definitely worth a look in person…that’s if it lasts.

1997 Audi UrS6

The last of a legendary breed, 1997 was the last year that the UrS6 was brought to North America and marked a 2 year hiatus until the C5 S6 was introduced stateside. Offering a bullet-proof driveline and plenty of power on tap, these cars are desirable among Audi enthusiasts, especially in this condition. This green over black S6 for “sale” near Detroit would make any Audi enthusiast swoon.

1997 Audi S6 URS6 on craigslist.org

passide

This is a 1 of 25 1997 URS6 that has been imported into the US from Canada. 165,000 miles but if you know anything about these cars with the right care they will never show their age. This is a feeler I’m putting out only because I could use the money around the house. This cars is in great shape (my baby) and I told myself I would never sell this car because of its rarity in the Audi community on the US. I have over 13 years of paper history of every bolt and part has been installed or replaced on the car. The original owner was a die hard URS guy (as am I, I love these cars). He used to live in Clarkston MI and he imported this car from Canada from Port Huron.

These cars were a lot of money in 1997 ($58,000) which is part of the reason Audi USA didn’t import any for 1997. In 1997 this car was ahead of the curve on luxury in that these had options I didn’t even knew existed at that time. Auto up/down all windows, heated front and rear seats, 6 speaker bose with 6 disc cd in the trunk, full under body coating along with dual galvanizing of its metal, and since this was a car that big business man drove a sat phone in the arm rest! The car was a 2.2l inline 5 turbocharged engine (AAN, very strong engine, fully forged, some on the forum have over 500,000 miles on just a head gasket replace). It has a 5-speed transmission (clutch is in great shape) and I have never launched the car or raced it in any way. Back to the car I wash and wax it all the time along with leather protection and this car has never seen snow so it is in the garage for the winter. If you where to look at this car you would never guess it had more then 60k miles on it. These cars are very rare to begin with and at this mileage and how well it was been taken care off and with it being a 1997 and in perfect running condition, starting at 6k seems about right. For some reason these cars have had a surge in value over the past 6 months, I’m thinking awareness of these cars coming out.

Wanted to add that I just changed the oil, spark plugs should be replaced by next oil change and timing belt is due in 12,000 miles so a years worth of average driving. There is a brake light on but is due to the spliced wires that go to the pad wear indicator so theres nothing wrong with the performance. The car has had all its coils replaced, upgraded turbo(the stock one was just fine and comes with the car), the wheels are 15″ Speedlines and came on cars that had the winter package I have no other wheels for it. The car is chipped to my knowledge and is around 280hp, I also have the stock chips if you want to put it back to stock but you wont want to). Anyway I would love to sell this to a Audi person that know and can take care of the car as well as I have but I’m willing to give knowledge to someone as well. Thanks for looking. Matt-call or txt 248-804-6one3zero

While not my favorite color, this S6 is clean. The mileage of 165,000 would be an issue for lesser cars, but these 034 powerplants, have proven their high mileage reliability. The paint and body on these cars are also built for the long haul; with galvanized body panels, they rarely rust or rot. This seller is looking for $6,000 in this for sale feeler, so it looks like it’s going to take all of that $6,000 for the title to change hands. The price seems pretty reasonable if the car is as clean as it appears in the pictures. This is certainly a car worth looking in to for someone in the market for an early S6.

1992 Audi UrS4

The UrS4 is where it all started for Audi’s S program in the US. With turbo 5 cylinder power and Quattro AWD this was the beginning of an era for Audi; an era that is still going strong. These days it’s becoming incresingly rare to see one of these cars as clean as this black on black S4 for sale in WA state.

1992 Audi UrS4 on audifans.com

Selling a very clean, well maintained, rare UrS4. Possibly the first one that came into the U.S. due to the VIN. Car is black on black, which is one of 50 in this color combo for the year. 148k original. For 20 years old, thats quite low. Only owned, and driven by pure enthusiasts. Bible of maintenance history. Car has never been in an accident, original paint and clearcoat in exceptional condition. Body is laser straight, not one scratch or door ding ever. Always garaged.

Upgrades include RS2 turbo, RS2 exhaust manifold, RS2 green top injectors, software, fuel regulator. Samco black silicone hoses. Custom front mount intercooler, comparable to the Apikol one, yet was made to fit correctly under the front bumper, while retaining the factory bumper grills. Porsche Big Black 4 piston calipers which are needed on a 170mph car. Bilstein struts with lifetime warranty. Powder coated black valve cover. Last timing belt jobe less then 30k ago. Wheels professionaly refinished with warranty. Properly relayed and wired headlights with HID balasts, foglights can run with highs/lows, rockguard on lenses. Dual rear fogs for brake checking, at the touch of a button. All integrated of course. S2 3 spoke steering wheel (original included as well). Not a beverage ever spilt on the interior. Ghost fuel pressure and boost pressure gauges mounted in glovebox. Bose stereo completely overhauled, with OE specs, sounds great. 10 disc in trunk. Everything works flawlessly on the car, inluding heat, A/C, sunroof, cruise, all heated seats, every single light and gauge.

Intentionally professionally built as a daily driver, yet capable on the autobahn. You wouldnt know its pumping 350hp unless you hit the throttle, and hold the hell on. Drives straight, smooth. Runs perfect, looks perfect. No disapointments. This is the ultimate sleeper. 509-869-1669

Pricing on this car isn’t as simple as KBB.com, because if it were, we’d be looking at a $5,000 car. These cars have a huge following with Audi and German car enthusiasts the like and with cars like this becoming increasingly rare, a premium is being paid. Having traveled only ~7,500 miles per year its whole life this gently worn S4 offers all of the right options and upgrades to command a top dollar in the UrS4 market. While not as desirable as the pearl white, a black on black S4 is a close second in desirability. Couple that with the RS2 upgrades and immaculate condition, and this car is with the $11K price all day long.

1994 Porsche 911 C4 Widebody

The Porsche 964 was a 911 that wore many hats. Available in the usual Turbo and non-Turbo guise, this was the 911 that introduced all-wheel drive to the equation in normally aspirated models. In 1994, a Speedster version arrived on the scene and along with the race ready RS variant, a US market RS America, based on the Carrera 2, was offered. Along with the multitude of different models, one could request the widebody option, which gave owners the look of the Turbo without the added cost, or horsepower, for that matter. This C4 for sale in Florda is the recipient of an extensive rebuild in Germany and is a sharp example of one of those rare widebody non-Turbos.

The engine and transmission were rebuilt during the restoration. This car is absolutely gorgeous. The vehicle was restored in Germany, and has been fully documented and completely TUV certified. You must see this vehicle in person to truely appreciate the craftsmanship and quality that went into this Carrera 4. There are hundreds of documented photos of this vehicle during its rebuild. For more information or photos, please email us.

The odometer still shows the original miles of 111,000 when the vehicle was purchased before the rebuild. The owner decided not to roll the mileage to 0, and chose to leave it with it’s original miles. Please note, the vehicle was completely rebuilt from the tub up. More pictures are available on our website. Link: http://www.tunersmall.com/picture-gallery.php?level=album&id=63

Don’t miss your chance to own a truely rare vehicle. There are not many of these vehicles left in the world, and there are no other 1994 Carrera 4 Porsches with this level of detail and craftsmanship.

While the level of work done to this car is certainly impressive, I’m not so sure that a rebuilt C4, regardless of whether it is a widebody or not, constitutes much more than what a 964 would cost these days, which is generally in the $50,000 to $60,000 range for a clean, unmolested example. The cost of the rebuild was certainly not cheap, but whether it is feasible to make that cost up will remain to be seen.

1993 Audi S4

Since the early ‘90s, Audi has utilized the “S” to signify its high performance production vehicles. The inaugural S car was the C4 bodied S4. Based on the Audi 100 sedan, the S4 featured a 227 horsepower turbo charged and intercooled 2.2 liter five cylinder power plant, and legendary Quattro AWD.  The combination of power, and all weather capability quickly became a thing of legend.

This clean Black over Ecru example for sale in Layton, UT is a very well kept example of the car that started it all.

1993 Audi S4 on eBay

 RARE RARE RARE 1993 Audi S4 5 cyclinder turbo!!!!!! This is truely an amazing  car. This was one of Audi’s best. If you know Audi then you know how amazing and rare this car is. This car runs and drivs great. Turbo boost really well and the engine pulls hard. The 5 speed manual transmission shifts extremely well. This car is truely a blast to drive. Automatic door locks, automatic windows, sunroof, leather, Quattro, turbo.
The features this car has is endless and well ahead of its time. More importantly  than features is the engine. Its a great engine. Have original owners manual and sticker. Now this car isn’t new or I would be asking much much more. Will need front brakes. Alternator bearings  are making noise. A/C blows cold but only from top vents. Its a ’93 and for the year has way low mileage and is honestly in great condition.

This is a car that I’ve lusted after for years, and is certainly one that is near the top of my bucket list. With 148K miles, and great looks this car would be great for a collector, or someone looking to make a powerhouse. Average retail on these cars is in the $5,000 area, and taking in to account the cleanliness and low mileage (relatively speaking) of this car I think it will sell for every bit of that $5,000.

While the low mileage and unmolested mechanicals are highly desirable, these cars are not without their problems. But as needy as these cars may be, you’ll quickly forget all about it once the snow falls, because that’s where these cars shine.

Reader-suggested 1995 Ur-S6 Avant for Sale

Thanks go to reader Larry for bringing this first-gen S6 to our attention. S6s have been on my mind this week since I saw a beefy-looking C5 S6 Avant on the street the other day. With the same plenty-powerful 4.2L V8 as the contemporary S4, the combination of muscle, utility, and AWD makes it an appetizing choice. The original S6, itself a re-badged Ur-S4, had a Euro-only “S6 Plus” option with 4.2L V8 , but the main engine was the classic 2.2L I5 putting out 230hp, not bad at all for 1995. Extra sexy as a 6-speed black avant, today’s listing could be a very fun Q-ship.

1995 Audi S6 Avant with 95,730 miles. 5cyl 20vturbo (AAN) gasoline engine with Stage1-Chip and a 6-speed maual (EDU) transmission. 5/95 build date, Black on black leather, OEM Recaro seats, 50% window tint, European Headlights with HIDs and city lights, 3rd row seat, all Seat heaters working, all windows & sunroof working, Heater and A/C working. No rips or tears in seats or side bolsters.

Samco hoses, 034 MAF hose, 034 Engine and Transmission mounts, Timing belt and waterpump replaced at 75K.

Very well maintained. Mostly OEM Audi parts used.

New Cam & Crank sensor, rear Camber links and steering damper. New OEM O2 Sensor and MAF sensor. New V/C gskt, Coolant reservoir, coolant Temp sensor, Auxillary waterpump, front subfram bushings, Parking brake cables and brake hoses. New L/F window regulator. New Sachs clutch along with 6-speed install at 79K.

Major Service done at 90K with Spark plugs, Air&Pollen filter, Fuel filter. All fluids changed incl. Brake Fluid, Coolant, Trans&Diff oil. New Conti Pro Contact tires, Alignment and 4 New Koni shocks installed at 90K. LOF , new wipers and rear brake pads done at 95K (front pads at 50% remaining)

Free extras include a full size spare tire, new starter and some spare parts.

Vehicle is sold as is, no existing warranty. Scratch on L/F fender and rear lid, 2 door dings.

It appears to be very well taken care-of with less than 100k miles,lots of solid maintenance taken care of along with a chip and 6-speed swap (a Euro factory option). Rein in the ride height a little bit and swap some later-model Audi wheels (C5 RS6 or late-model larger S4 Avus, perhaps?) and this will be a responsible all-weather wagon for the enthusiast. Reserve not met at $5,500 with 5 days left. I’d go in for $8k or less.
