The Final Air-Cooled U.S. Porsche.


An automotive icon is now available for auction on Pcarmarket: the 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S, the last air-cooled Porsche produced for North America, originally built for Jerry Seinfeld. This unique piece of automotive history carries a special distinction, merging celebrity ownership with the end of an era in Porsche engineering.

Designated as the very last air-cooled Porsche to have been made for the North American market, this 1998 993 Carrera S Coupe holds a significant place in the marque’s history. Originally built for renowned comedian and avid car collector Jerry Seinfeld, this vehicle features a “Special Options Package” valued at $41,000, elevating its original sticker price to nearly $120,000. The car is finished in rare Panthero Metallic paint, a color previously seen on the 944 model from 1990 to 1991, and comes with a host of high-end features and options.

The Carrera S is among the rarest and most desirable 993 variants, noted for its wide fenders and bumpers derived from the 911 Turbo, and its distinctive split-grille rear decklid. This particular model includes yellow brake calipers, 18” Technology hollow-spoke wheels, a “911” rear model designation, a speed-activated rear spoiler, xenon headlamps with washers, and integrated fog lights. The car also features dual stainless-steel exhaust tips and an electric sunroof, adding to its allure.

Inside, the 993 Carrera S is appointed with Black full leather upholstery and power-adjustable front Sport Seats in supple leather. The interior is accented with yellow seatbelts, stainless-steel door sills with model insignias, black floor mats with yellow Porsche logos, and carbon fiber trim on the steering wheel, gear selector, and handbrake. Additional features include a Becker-Porsche CDR-210 stereo, Sound Package Plus, automatic climate control, cruise control, steering wheel shift buttons, and a tachometer with an integrated computer. A commemorative plaque in the trunk confirms its status as the last air-cooled Porsche produced for North America, built for Seinfeld and completed at the factory on December 19, 1997.

Powering this iconic vehicle is an air-cooled 3.6-liter M64 flat-six engine, delivering up to 282 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a Tiptronic 4-speed automatic transaxle with manual shift mode. The car is also equipped with the optional Motor Sound Package, which includes a revised airbox and muffler for a more aggressive exhaust note. The seller notes that the battery was recently replaced, ensuring the car is in excellent running condition.

This 1998 Porsche 993 Carrera S represents a unique opportunity to own a significant piece of Porsche history, blending the final chapter of air-cooled engineering with the prestige of celebrity ownership. Now offered for auction by a private party out of Dallas, Texas, with just over 6,000 miles on the odometer, this car is ready to be cherished by a new owner.
