1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S VIN: WP0AA2996V322264 2 owners, same owner for past 20 years Northern California car since new Major mechanical servicing to as-new condition by Canepa in 2017 Large service document collection during 2nd owners tenure Driven less than 3,500 miles per year 6-speed manual transmission, 3.6-liter flat six engineOptions: Full Leather seats Drive Block Immobilizer System 18 Technology wheels (lightweight hollow spoke) Cassette-radio Becker Porsche CR-210 8-way power adjustable seat, drivers side 4-way power adjustable seat, passengers side Cruise Control Upgraded sound system Electric Sunroof 6-disc CD changer Becker Porsche CDC-3 The last of the air-cooled Porsche 911s, the 993 is the final evolution of the storied air-cooled lineage from Porsche. The 993 boasts all of the innovations and refinement that Porsche learned from building the 911 for 30+ years, creating a simple yet distilled package of excellent driving dynamics, everyday comfort and accessible performance. The C2S uses the same wide body as the coveted 993 Turbo but retains the purity of the 911 with only rear wheel drive and a 6-speed manual transmission. With an incredible amount of mechanical grip, boasting all of the updates to the 993 platform and a direct driving experience with enough power to get into trouble with, the 993 Carrera S is a fantastic performer in all conditions. This black over black Carrera S was purchased new in California, with the first owner noted on August 14th, 1997. The first owner drove the car for approximately two years before the Carrera S was sold to its new owner on August 16th, 1999 with 15,453 miles. This new owner had a poster of a 911 on his wall when he was a child and the new Carrera S was his dream car. Black over black leather, 6-speed manual, rear wheel drive, and a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter flat six engine were all things that he wanted and everything that he had now. Over the course of 20 years he thoroughly enjoyed the car, using it as his daily driver for the first few years of his ownership. In the early 2000s he purchased a new Porsche 996 but couldnt bring himself to sell the Carrera S. During this time he drove the car occasionally on sunny days in northern California, making sure his 993 was exercised. In 2007 he began daily driving it again for three years, before he bought another car and kept the Carrera S for special driving occasions until 2017. Taking one look at this Carrera S would be enough evidence for the casual enthusiast to know that it had been lovingly maintained over the course of its history. The black paint finish is in excellent condition, the black leather interior shows far less wear than a normal car with the same mileage, and overall the car drives with and inspires confidence as it was designed by Porsche. This comes down to the 2nd owner having a meticulous sense of maintenance and preservation, with a large stack of service documents starting back when he purchased the car. If all of that servicing wasnt enough, then its comprehensive mechanical servicing at Canepa in 2017 should be the last bit of convincing youll need. Being his dream car, the 2nd owner came to Canepa knowing how business was done and how cars were kept, wanting to take care of his favorite car. He had the intent of servicing everything and returning it back to factory as-new specifications, with every conceivable item addressed that would make driving it like getting into a brand-new Carrera S. Over the course of 7 months, the car was completely gone through and given an extensive and exacting mechanical restoration and servicing. This included the normal service items such as bushings, door seals, brakes, fluid changes, but also more minute adjustments such as rattles from inside the door and areas of the car and wind noise leaks that are normal for a 22-year-old car. The steering system had all of its seals replaced and
