After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.


Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.


Classic Car Overview

1997 Porsche 911 C4S VIN: WP0AA299XVS321733 Previously owned by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres 24,007 miles since new Well-maintained example with service records Has books, tools, compressor and spare 3.6-liter flat six engine with 6-speed manual transmission Black over black leather interior The last of the air-cooled Porsche 911s, the 993 is the final evolution of the long air-cooled lineage from Porsche. The 993 boasts all of the innovations and refinement that Porsche learned from building the 911 for 30+ years, creating a simple yet distilled package of excellent driving dynamics, everyday comfort and accessible performance. The C4S, first built for the 1996 model year, uses the same wide body as the coveted 993 Turbo and also used the same all-wheel-drive system that the Turbo was equipped with. With an incredible amount of mechanical grip, a direct driving experience with enough power to get into trouble with, the 993 C4S is a fantastic performer in all conditions. This car was first delivered to the Porsche dealer of Evansville, IN on February 27th, 1997. Specd in black over a black leather interior with a 6-speed manual transmission, this car was first registered in Kentucky on March 11th, 1997. The 993 was then sold on March 4th, 1999 with an indicated 7,982 miles. Its second owner, Robert Miner, would be this 911s longest caretaker, owning the car from June of 1999 to around 2014. During this time, Robert kept excellent care of the Porsche, having it regularly serviced as evidenced by the long list of service receipts for this car. His attention to detail is also present by looking at the entire car, from the interior showing very little wear whatsoever and the black paint finish showing as if it was only a few years old. After June of 2017 made its way to California into the hands of popular talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres. In July of 2017 DeGeneres purchased the C4S to add to her collection of cars. Unknown by most, Ellen had an identical C4S early on in her career and sold it some time ago. Wanting to relive the Porsche experience, she found the closest example to her original one so she could keep it with her other cars. She had the car maintained while the car was in her care, and only drove the car approximately 500 miles in a little less than two years. Satisfied with her experience, the car recently arrived at Canepa so that another lucky individual could experience this 993 C4S. When the 911 arrived at Canepa, its condition was evidence enough of the amount of care it received during its life with its past owners. The car was immediately placed into Canepas system to go through the entire Canepa Difference process. After a thorough mechanical inspection and receiving a clean bill of health, the car was cleaned from front to back to ensure that every surface was spotless. From the underside to the engine compartment, the black leather interior down the smallest crevices in the wheel wheels, nothing was untouched. The car then received a comprehensive foam-pad paint polishing, enhancing the black factory paintwork to a fantastic luster. This 1997 Porsche 993 C4S now presents as a stunning example of the breed and is the complete package with its excellent maintenance record along with the Canepa Difference level of mechanical and cosmetic preparation. Pair that with its celebrity ownership, a preserved factory exterior and interior, and top-tier driving dynamics, this 993 C4S exists to impress and dares anyone to not enjoy driving it.
