THE PORSCHE 964

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 elegant Grand Prix White on Black Coupe is an excellent example of Porsche's potent 964 Turbo. Completed on February 28, 1991, this is one of just 674 produced for the US market and offers incredible performance, accredited to its turbocharged air-cooled flat six and sporting suspension. According to the car's original owner's manual, the Porsche was sold new from Hoehn Porsche of Carlsbad, CA in July of 1991, to a Mr. Edwin Thurston, III. Showing just 54,906 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloging, this well-cared for numbers-matching 911 remains in wonderful, largely original condition. According to the CARFAX report on file, the 964 Turbo has never been registered outside of California and appears to have been with just three owners in the Carlsbad area since new.

Complete with tool roll, owner's manuals, and a large history file containing registration cards, maintenance records and a period brochure, this 964 is offered with all the right accessories. Along with a clean CARFAX report, this Turbo icon presents beautifully, very original throughout, and deserved serious consideration. A truly usable collector car, this era of air-cooled 911 is rapidly gaining popularity.
