The Porsche 930

Representing a major step forward for the 911, the new Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 - code named '964' - were launched in 1989, the former marking the first time that 4-wheel drive had been seen on a series-production 911. Porsche had experimented with 4-wheel drive on the 959 supercar, and many of the lessons learned from that scenario influenced the design of the 964's chassis and suspension. Although the normally aspirated duo shared the same 3.6-liter, 247bhp, flat-six engine, the Turbo kept its existing 3.3-liter unit, which now developed 320bhp. Power-assisted steering (another 911 'first'), anti-lock brakes and a five-speed manual transaxle were standard.


The Motorcar Offered

This menacing black on black coupe is an excellent example of Porsche's potent 964 Turbo. Completed on June 3rd, 1991, this is one of just 674 produced for the US market and offers incredible performance thanks to its turbocharged air-cooled flat six and sporting suspension. Showing just 27,563 miles, this well cared for numbers-matching 911 remains in wonderful, largely original condition. Aside from the upgraded radio head, one of the few alterations from the original is the addition of rare Porsche 3-piece Speedline wheels, which further enhance the aggressive appearance of this Turbo. According to the Porsche COA, this particular Turbo was specified with a limited slip differential, sliding sunroof, and supple leather seats, a combination of options aimed at the original purpose of this car: immense performance and touring comfort.

As is commonly known, Porsches of this era were finished at Porsche AG as 'worldwide chassis', meaning that many have a different prefix in the stamped VIN than the one the car is identified under. This car was given worldwide chassis number WP0ZZZ98ZMS480579, as stamped on its chassis-tub, but was then assigned the US-market specific VIN of WP0AA2963MS480579 once it was eventually slated for US delivery. The car's Porsche issued Certificate of Authenticity is also based on its US-market VIN number.

Complete with tool roll, owner's manual, and a bespoke coffee table book, this 964 is offered with all the right accessories. Along with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a clean CARFAX, this Turbo icon presents beautifully and very original throughout.
