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 stand out 1991 911 Carrera 4 Coupe was completed at the factory on May 17, 1991. The car was ordered new by the Mead family with Violet Blue Metallic paint over a black leather interior. The Meads heavily option the U.S. bound car with supple leather seats, lumbar support L/R, dull power seat L/R, heated seat L/F, headlight washers, rear window wiper, cassette radio, Porsche CD player, heavy duty windshield cleaning, on-board computer, and forged alloy wheels. Upon the cars competition, the Meads went to Stuttgart where they would take factory delivery of the 911 prior to shipping it to Illinois and driving it to their home in New Mexico where the car was first registered on August 30, 1991. With only 4,820 original miles at the time of cataloging, the car is in as-new condition with hardly any evidence of use. In July of 2018, the car was sent to Patrick Motorsports where it received a thorough servicing and detailing which has left the car in its as delivered state. Included with the car are all of its original books, tools, documentation pertaining to the tourist delivery and shipping, service receipts, and a Porsche issued COA. Ultra-low miles, single owner history, time capsule originality, and its incredible color make this 964 the car to own.
