History


1998 was an important year for Porsche AG and in particular for the 911. The production of the air-cooled

Porsche 911 Type 993 was due to end in March 1998, to make way for the new production lines of the new

air-cooled Porsche 911 Type 996 by water. The Porsche 993s had proven to be very popular, with more

than 68,000 produced.

The last Porsche 993 produced to leave the Zuffenhausen assembly lines on March 31, 1998 was the one

ordered and purchased by American comedian and Porsche collector Jerry Seinfeld: a Porsche

993 4S in Mexico Blue. But in reality, it was not the last Porsche 993 delivered…

The Type 993 is the last Porsche model to be air-cooled, marking a major turning point in the history of Porsche.

The Porsche 911 Type 996 has become one of the most popular Porsches to date with a very large number of models produced until 2005: 175,262 copies.

1998 was a very difficult year according to certain testimonies from the teams of the Marketing department.

In addition, Porsche celebrated its 50th anniversary on June 10, 1998 and preparations for events all over

the world were underway to celebrate this event.

Preparations for these celebrations were turned upside down 74 days before the anniversary by the death

of Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche (Ferry) on March 27, 1998. He had taken over the reins of Porsche on

the death of his father in 1951 and had been chairman until when he retired in 1989. He was still considered

a “Father” by many Porsche employees.


This 911 turbo model was ordered in 1997 as a custom model, with chassis number WP0ZZZ99ZWS370750

and engine number 61W01228. This is the real last example to leave the Porsche factory. It was delivered

new to the customer in the German Porsche Zentrum Altötting dealership (near Salzburg on the border with Austria)

on 30/09/1998.

This car rolled off the production line at the Porsche factory on March 27, 1998 at 2:53 p.m., a few

hours before Ferry Porsche died in Zell am See, Austria around 6:00 p.m.

Rolling off the production lines, the car was far from finished. As a special order, it was sent to the

Porsche Exclusive personalization department to be finished by hand.

This model is a Porsche 911 turbo WLS 2 (Werksleistungssteigerung – increase in engine power at the factory)

Type 993 4-wheel drive, with the 3.6 l M64/60 engine developing 450 hp via two turbos and mated to

a gearbox. 6-speed manual gear. The car adopted the Ocean Blue color (Ocean Blau) that appeared

on the Porsche Boxster with rims also painted in the same blue color as well as Brembo brake calipers

still in the same color.


The interior is also in blue, as are the dials of the instrument cluster and the air vents. The leather has

the color Nacht Blau (midnight blue). The car was fitted with electronic cut-off which was only available

on the RS, GT2 and Speedster models. This model had a large number of bespoke equipment and Porsche

never communicated its existence.

This Porsche was equipped with an aluminum plaque on the dashboard (above the glove compartment) which

pays homage to Prof. Ferry Porsche via the inscription: “Im memoriam Prof.

Ferry Porsche – Wahr sind nur die Erinnerungen, die wir mit uns tragen, die Traume, die wir spinnen,

und die Sehnsuchte, die uns treiben. Damit wollen wir uns bescheiden. 03.27.1998”

(In memory of Professor Ferry Porsche – Only the memories we carry with us are real, the dreams we

carry and the desires that drive us. We can be satisfied with them. 03.27.1998 (date of his death) ). This

is a quote from a 1944 German film called "Die Feuerzangenbowle".


A letter dated 25/09/1998 from Porsche AG has been sent to the first owner, the famous German writer

and friend of Ferry Porsche – Clauss Vanderborg – to certify that this is indeed the very last Porsche Type

993 delivered.


Moreover, the Porsche Altötting Center had a specific plate made and attached to the edge of the driver's

door which bears the following inscription: "Clauss Vanderborg erhält heute den letzten klassischen

Porsche 911 (993 turbo) mit luftgekühltem Boxermotor. THE BEAT IS YOURS FOREVER! Porsche

Zentrum Altötting 25.09.1998” (Clauss Vanderborg today received the last classic Porsche 911 (993 turbo) with

an air-cooled Boxer engine. The pace is yours forever! Porsche Center Altötting 25.09.1998).


The brushed aluminum door sills also have a specific inscription: “The Last Waltz”.


A specific sticker is stuck on the rear window, bearing the inscription “The Last Waltz – 993 turbo”, the drawing

of a couple dancing on a waltz and the Porsche logo with the reference to the year 1998.

A yellow sticker with 2 silhouettes of Porsche 356 and 911 with the inscription "50 Jahre Porsche"

(50 years of Porsche) is present on the two rear windows.

With all the options, this unique model cost 327,671.67 DM (167 ,535.86 Euros)


This incredible Porsche 993 turbo only has 10,997 km from new. After being delivered new to

Clauss Vanderborg, the latter kept it for a short time. In 1999, it was then sold and delivered to a

collector in Japan.

In 2015, it was discovered in Japan and bought by the Belgian company Nijsmans Classic Cars,

which brought it back to Belgium. She then exhibited it at Techno Classica 2016 and 2017 to finally sell it to a new owner.
