Footnotes

  • Representing a major step forward, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 versions of the Porsche 911 - code named '964' - were launched in 1989, the former marking the first time that four-wheel drive had been seen on a series-production 911. Porsche had experimented with four-wheel drive on the 959 supercar, and many of the lessons learned from the latter influenced the design of the 964's chassis and suspension. Face-lifted but retaining that familiar shape, the newcomers had been given a more extensive work-over mechanically, 87% of parts being claimed as entirely new. The pair shared the same 3.6-litre, 247bhp, flat-six engine while power-assisted steering (another 911 'first'), anti-lock brakes and a five-speed manual transmission were standard on both, with the Tiptronic auto 'box a Carrera 2-only option. Its new Type M64 engine enabled the 964 to out-perform the old '3.2' yet still met the latest emissions regulations, top speed increasing to 162mph with 60mph attainable in 5.4 seconds (5.6 seconds Tiptronic).

    We are advised that this manual transmission Carrera 2 Cabriolet underwent an engine top-end rebuild some years ago and is currently running very well. A total of 140,893 miles is recorded on the odometer and 'G905 WYK' is described as unmolested and in generally good condition. The car is offered with sundry invoices, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5 registration document.

    No reserve.
