Arena Red Metallic holds a special place in the heart of most Porsche aficionados. As the launch color for the new all-wheel drive 911 Turbo in 1996 it was the color that introduced Porsche fans to the idea that the new 911 'Kills bugs fast,' setting the tone for Porsche's marketing and for any new air-cooled 911 ordered from then on. The Carrera S model features the perfect blend of late 1990s Porsche attributes that make any fan of air-cooled Porsche fans stand up and take notice. Offered for just two years, Carrera S features the wide-body taken from the Carrera C4S which in turn was borrowed from the aforementioned 911 Turbo. The Carrera S is rear-wheel drive only, significantly more satisfying in terms of driving purity. Additional Carrera S details of note are a special engine grill evoking memories of a 356 twin-grill Roadster and special gauges with Carrera S lettering on the tachometer.

It is clear that the original owner of this special Carrera S took great pains to not only select the purest Porsche available in 1998 but to option it correctly as well. Arena Red Metallic is unquestionably the perfect paint selection for any 993 and this low-mileage example is wonderfully complimented by a Cashmere and Black leather interior. Additional option boxes were ticked for a sunroof, 18-inch hollow spoke 'Technology' wheels, and both Aerokits, 'XD1' and 'XD2', add special front and rear spoilers, in effect, creating a unique two-wheel-drive 911 Turbo look! Finally, this 993 Carrera S is notable for one option not chosen - a Tiptronic automatic transmission. The original purchaser elected to retain the fantastic and time-honored six-speed manual transmission to the delight of spirited drivers everywhere
