1998 Porsche 911 Carrera S

$_57 (1)

There’s something about a widebody 911 that gets my heart racing. The 993 Carrera S and 4S captured this look perfectly, with it’s smoother styling that would usher in the final chapter of the air-cooled 911. The Carrera S and 4S was an attempt, as in previous generations, to capture a bit of the aggression of the 911 Turbo without the cost or complexity. Other than the rear wing and twin-turbocharged engine, the S models were quite similar to the Turbo, sharing the wider rear haunches that would ultimately increase aerodynamic drag. This Carrera 2S for sale in Ohio has been tuned up a bit, looking quite mean in black sitting on replica Fuchs alloys.

This isn’t exactly a 911 for the purist, but it’s not terribly executed, either. I’m always torn over whether I like the 964 or 993 better, but I can’t ignore the beauty of the last air-cooled 911 with Fuchs style wheels sitting under those wide rear fenders. I could do without some of the brightly colored accents like the rev counter and brake calipers, but those are easy items to modify. We saw a 1996 911 C4S with 13,000 miles sell for just over $73,000 last May, so the asking price here represents a bit of a jump since then. The mileage on this example certainly isn’t high, but it’s a good bit more than the car we came across in the middle of last year. There seems to be no end to the rise in values for air-cooled 911s, so if this one sells for the asking price, I wouldn’t be all that surprised.

    I wish I was in an income bracket to afford one of these final air cooled Porsches. I think they probably address the shortcomings I found in the “G50”.

    I spit up a little “Custom Acid Green” when I saw the “Acid Green OEM Calipers, Acid Green OEM strut tower brace, Acid Green OEM “S” badge on rear deck, and the Custom Acid Green Hollywood Speedo Tachometer”.

    This car looks like crap. A Ferrari wanna-be tach, not sure wanna-be brake calipers, non OEM and not period correct Fuchs wheels, on a car that would be desirable 100% OEM.

    audemars, all of these items you mention are easily replaceable… that’s the great thing about subtle mods. Also, the Fuchs look waaaaay better than the stock turbo twists, IMO. The twists do nothing for the rear flares on a C4S.

    Agreed that stock would be better for my tastes, however, I do like the old school Fuchs reference somehow. Drop forged wheels are such a simple idea…..

    I’m always a bit surprised at how polarizing are the modifications that owners, including myself, make in search of better performance, better looks, or the desire to personalize to our mass-produced cars. The best reply, IMHO, came from famed engineer, Dr. Frank-N-furter…

    This car is actually a Carrera “2”S. Much rarer beast than a 4S.
