Will the madness ever stop? Looking at today’s car, maybe not.
This is a 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S. The “king of the hill” 993 Turbo and one of the most desirable air-cooled Porsches ever made. Just 345 examples were produced and only 182 of them were imported to the US. As you might have guessed, most were driven sparingly. A few thousand miles a year at most and then once prices started climbing, the miles started decreasing. However, this is one example that didn’t even hit that few thousand miles. This example comes in with the number 1,779 shown on the odometer. That’s it. Also, it has a totally crazy leather-to-sample Boxster Red interior. Brace yourself for this price.

Stunning doesn’t begin to describe this one. It is hard to believe someone didn’t give in to the temptation of driving this one even with this totally insane interior. I personally love it as it follows my preference of being unsuspecting on the outside but wild on the inside.
However, the price is something to behold. $900,000. Are we heading towards a million-dollar 993 soon? What is to say a lower-mileage car doesn’t pop up next and ask seven figures for it? This one is totally out of my league it isn’t even funny, but for someone who adored these cars new back in 1997, this will be the one for them. Even at $900,000.
Wasn’t there a slant nose version of this that’s even more rare ? Perhaps that was only for Europe….
$1M for a 993 Turbo is insane. I don’t care if it’s covered in diamonds. The driving experience does not equate to $1M. This market is just insane. I can’t wait for a correction so all these speculators lose their shirts.
@Arun. That is the 964. 10 examples of the X83. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1994-porsche-911-turbo-s-flachbau/
39 examples of the X85. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1994-porsche-911-turbo-s-x85/
You must have to really really want a 993T S at that price….you have choices of much more interesting cars and other Porsches at that price.
Attractive colorway, gorgeous vehicle, disgusting price.
