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

The Ultimate 993 Experience Bruce Canepa Porsche Ownership History Special Wishes Custom Order Extremely Rare X51 Factory Option Engine Upgrade 3.8-Liter Flat-Six (300 H.P./ 273 lb-ft. of Torque) Gorgeous Black Metallic Paint with Flamingo Red Full Leather Interior and Carbon Fiber Trim Extensive list of Special Wishes options including: Sunroof Delete C2S Twin Grill Engine Lid Full Leather including Roof Lining, Steering Wheel & Sun Visors Rear Wiper Delete Aluminum-Look Instrument Dials Rear Model Designation Delete The last of the air-cooled 911s, with the biggest factory engine upgrade option and a Flamingo Red leather interior? Truly, this is the Ultimate 993. The odyssey of this stunning and unique Carrera 4S is a rich one, beginning on July 29, 1997, with an opening chapter that raises as many questions as it answers. Initial registration documents intriguingly name Porsche itself as the owner. 10 years later, in 2007, following a record of service stamps (included in the original warranty booklet) spanning across Germany and France, the vehicle found itself in the hands of Rainer Henkel. Henkel, known beyond his Olympic success in the pool for his foray into racing within the amateur circuits of the Porsche Cup, assumed stewardship of the car without significant fanfare in motorsports but with an evident affinity for the essence of Porsche. The baton was then passed to Jrgen Spitzer in 2009 and Gerd Bhler, who took the reins in 2014. His chapter added to the cars mystique, residing in the windswept beauty of Sylt-an island as unique as the cars own story. The stamps and records serve as a testament to its well-documented and well-traveled existence on that side of the pond until its arrival in the United States. Since 2021, this distinguished vehicle has benefitted from an investment of nearly $25,000 in meticulous maintenance and service. Documentation confirms that the servicing was expertly handled by Knpfing Motorsport in Estenfeld, Germany, the Porsche dealership in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany before coming to the US. The 993 series C2S, C4S, and Turbo are often called the ultimate Porsches. The C4S stands apart from its brethren with its distinctive wide-body stance, inherited from the legendary 993 Turbo. This form isnt merely aesthetic; it contributes to the cars exceptional grip and handling prowess, making it a true drivers machine. The C4Ss intelligent all-wheel-drive system delivers unwavering traction, whether carving through mountain passes or navigating rain-soaked city streets. It expands the 911s usability without sacrificing the visceral thrills the model is known for. Under the iconic rear decklid lies a naturally aspirated 3.8L flat-six engine, a rare factory option providing an exciting power bump. Its distinctive sound and linear power delivery are both intoxicating and engaging, a fitting end to the era of the air-cooled 911 legacy. Whether youre a seasoned Porsche enthusiast or seeking an entry into the legendary 911 experience, this car promises to ignite a passion for driving that few modern vehicles can replicate. The Porsche 993 is a testament to the brands dedication to engineering excellence and performance-driven design. Its combination of advanced features, unmatched driving dynamics, and timeless aesthetics makes it a highly sought-after gem among automotive enthusiasts and collectors alike. Upon arriving at Canepa, vehicles are treated to the Canepa Difference This includes a complete mechanical inspection. Everything is serviced as needed and road-tested by Bruce Canepa. It is finished off with a Concours quality detail. The undersides and wheel wells are hand-cleaned, ensuring that each surface is spotless.
