1998 Porsche 993 Turbo S | $4.9M HKD



The Porsche 911 Turbo S was introduced as the first-ever model of its kind in 1997 and built for only two years by Porsche Exclusive Department. A big step up over the standard 911 Turbo in terms of exclusivity, performance and price, the Turbo S was 50% more expensive than the Turbo and performance was not far off. Of the acclaimed Type 993 produced from 1994 to 1998, the Turbo S was among the last of the air-cooled 911s and was capable of performance that still impresses today.


The heart of the Turbo S is a flat six-cylinder engine fitted with a pair of K-24 turbochargers. Power is put to the ground through a six-speed manual transaxle and all-wheel-drive system that was developed for the earlier 964 Carrera 4. Porsche altered the Bosch Motronic engine-management system and added an additional oil cooler to handle the increased heat load. Large, 12.68-inch power-assisted ventilated and cross-drilled multi-piston disc brakes with yellow calipers delivered impressive stopping power from any speed.


The Porsche Exclusive Department built only 345 examples of the Turbo S, and this incredible rare car is easily identifiable by its numerous unique features throughout. The front fog lights were removed and replaced with air ducts to aid front brake cooling, the exhaust system was replaced with a modified unit that has quadruple rear tips, the flared rear fenders sprouted large air inlets, and the rear deck featured an impressive “Aerokit II” biplane spoiler to increase downforce.


Unlike some other special-edition models, Porsche did not sacrifice creature comforts and usability for track performance with the Turbo S. Inside was a luxurious full leather interior with generous amounts of carbon fiber trim on the lower portion of the dashboard, around the gauges, along the doorsills, and on the center console, door panels, and door pulls. It even has an electric sunroof.


The Turbo S delivered stunning performance in a package as luxurious and exclusive as discerning Porsche customers had come to expect. It really was the ultimate supercar that could comfortably be driven as a daily commuter. Collectors today value the Turbo S for its rarity, performance, and the timeless styling of the final iteration of the legendary air-cooled Turbo.

The Type 993's arrival marked a return to basic principles, being recognizable a 911, but one in which all functions had been harmoniously integrated in a truly outstanding example of modern au
