The Porsche 911 Turbo S

Introduced for the first time in 1997 and built for only two years, the Turbo S was a considerable step up performance wise, being among the last of the air-cooled 911s and capable of performance that still impresses today. The heart of the Turbo S was a Type M64/60 twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine pushed to 450 horsepower.
The car, already wearing Porsche’s aggressive “wide-body” look, had air inlets in the tops of the rear fenders, an impressive biplane rear-deck spoiler called the “Aerokit II”, a Euro-market front spoiler with special brake cooling inlets, and matte-finish alloy wheels.
The Turbo S delivered stunning performance in a package as luxurious and exclusive as Porsche’s discerning customers had come to expect. It really was the ultimate supercar that could be used as a daily commuter if the owner wished. Collectors today value the Turbo S for its rarity, performance, timeless styling, and that it is the last iteration of the air-cooled Turbo.

Exquisite, one-off specifications example finished in the very rare Palladium Metallic with special Red Boxter leather to the interior. 370605 was supplied new via Porsche official dealer D’Ieteren in Belgium on June 1998. In addition to its unique colour combination, the car was custom ordered with over two pages of Porsche Exclusive options! Wanting his car to be different to the last detail and for cosmetic purpose, he also expressly asked not to have the sunroof fitted which actually does appear on the majority of this model.
370605 remained in the same collection for many years before being subsequently sold to its current owner with 78,000 km in 2014. It received at the same time a major service at Porsche official dealer and an additional 4,500 km was covered ever since.
