1998 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Coupe


Review

Yes it is speed yellow! This is my 1st 911 and has been an awesome car. This is also my 5th Porsche. I picked up the car in Portland and drove it South of LA. It is not the most comfortable car for long trips, especially with sports seats. But, I got an avg. of 27 Mpg! Unbelievable in such a fast car. It effortlessly does 3 digit speeds, even up hills!! The car was loaded with sport exhaust, drive block, limited slip, sport seats to name a few options. The paint was a $3000 option when new; now it is a std. color on Porsches. The C2S has excellent styling, very quick acceleration and classic 911 interior dash. Recommend to do a corner balance on the suspension and it will handle even better!

Review

I bought this black on black monster from a dealer in Texas in 2001. It had 8K miles on it. Dealer owned and driven according to Carfax. Still only has 30K well driven miles. I've had 4 Porches and my mechanics... all worked at the Porsche factory at one time... told me this was the one to keep. The turbo setup with the smaller engine is over engineered for driving. In other words... you wear anything out very easy. This is the perfect 'classic' car to own which you can drive without depreciating the price. This car was built to be driven and needs to be pressed at 130-150 every few years just to let you know you're alive. I typically run mine at 3500-4000 rpms on normal. Change oil every 5K.

Born to Run

Review

This is the machine you always dreamt about driving. Once you drive it, you will dream about how the drive was better than the dream. What a car! Power and handling grace built within a great looking body style. You feel this car's purpose on the curves and straight aways. This is not a car you steer. This is a car you drive. Massage your way through the gears and you are the car. Take the top down and feel the wind. You are living the good life. If you love driving, then this car was born to run for you!! Favorite drive: Pacific Coast Highway south of Big Sur

993 value should increase

Review

Best true sports car on the road. Low miles - great condition 98 appeals to me more so than a 2004 or 2004 996.

The last of the REAL Porsches

Review

1998 was fairwell to the 911(993) as we knew it. While the 911 (996) is a fantastic car it is more of a luxury automobile than a true "drivers" car. The C2S handles like a go-cart, in a good way, and rockets like a sport motorcycle. The 1998 C2S and C4S are destin to be a classic.

I love this car

Review

Here's the truth: you will never find a car that's more fun to drive. Period. If you want a luxury car, however, don't buy a porsche. The interior is spartan. The car creaks and croaks and makes other interesting noises. There's no cupholder or other modern accutrements. And the dashboard layout defies logic (you can't even see the AC/Heat controls because they are blocked by the steering wheel). But you will stick to the road. And can take a sharp right at 60. And if you see 6th gear, you're probably going 100 (not that you'd even notice).

Gotta Get It

Review

Forget the mass produced liquid cooled ugly 996 monstrosities known for its unreliable engines. You need to get the 993 with its wonderful curves and traditional air-cooled engine! 98' was the last year for this engine.....don't miss out!

Porsche 4S

1998 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

The performance of the Porsche 911 4S is totally awesome. It has great handling and accelerates like it's got a plane to catch. I previously owned a Boxster and there is simply no comparison; the 911 is serious, the Boxster is a toy.
