Porsche 911 (933) 4S 1996
Gorgeous doesn’t begin to describe the Porsche 911 (933) 4S supercar. Its low and wide body with flared wheel arches and bold rear wing delivers coveted 993 Turbo looks without the turbo price tag. This is one of our favorite cars to export from Japan to car aficionados overseas and we have found that its value is actually rising. So you can satisfy your dreams while making a solid investment, too.
The rear-mounted engine may be naturally aspirated, but it generates an impressive 285 hp that takes you from 0 to 60 in 5.3 seconds and sounds great at high rpm. You’ll also enjoy phenomenally sure-footed roadhandling courtesy of all wheel drive, wide 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels with low-profile Pirellis, and large power-assisted disc brakes with iconic red calipers. Try saying “911 Carrera” without salivating. I’ll bet you can’t.
Now Porsche lovers everywhere are purchasing their dream cars from Japan, where used vehicles are better cared for and auctions offer incredible value — especially at today’s exchange rates. Shop around internationally and you’ll discover the best deals are right here in the land of the rising sun.
We recently sourced the beautiful 4S in these photos at a used car auction, where the inspector gave it a well deserved high auction grade of 4.5/B, and shipped it directly to the ecstatic new owner overseas. Driven sparingly, with only 57,982km on the odometer and an overall condition that could only be described as nearly new, this dream car was practically a steal. And the owner could have been you!
