THE PORSCHE 964

Representing a major step forward in the development of Porsche long-running and much loved 911 sports car, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 versions—code named "964"—were launched in 1989. The former marked the first time that four-wheel drive had been observed 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-liter, 247bhp, flat-six engine, while power-assisted steering (another 911 "first"), anti-lock brakes, and a five-speed manual transmission were standard on both, while the Tiptronic auto box was a Carrera 2-only option. Its new Type M64 engine enabled the 964 to out-perform the old "3.2," yet still meet the latest emissions regulations. The top speed increased to 162mph with 60mph attainable in 5.4 seconds.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This sleek 1990 911 Carrera 4 Coupe was ordered new by the Mead Family with Silver Metallic paint over a partial black leather interior. The car was completed at the factory on March 26, 1990. The Meads heavily option the U.S. bound car with model designation delete, supple leather seats, lumbar support L/R, dull power seat L/R, heated seat L/F, headlight washers, Porsche CD player, heavy duty windshield cleaning, and forged alloy wheels. Upon the car's competition, the Meads went to Stuttgart where they would take factory delivery of the 911 prior to shipping it to Illinois. Once receiving the car in Illinois on August 27, 1990, the Meads proceeded to drive the new 911 to their home in New Mexico (picking up a ticket in Texas) where the car was first registered on September 25, 1990. With only 13,877 original miles at the time of cataloging, the car is in phenomenal condition. In July of 2018, the car was sent to Patrick Motorsports where it received a thorough servicing and detailing, leaving the car in amazing mechanical and cosmetic condition. Included with the car are all of its service receipts, original books, tools, first aid kit, documentation pertaining to the tourist delivery and shipping, service receipts, and a Porsche issued COA. The 964 is a rapidly appreciating model and this example is sure to lead its brethren.
