The Porsche 964 is the company's internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models; most prominently, the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche's optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all wheel drive as options. Porsche chose to re-use the 3.3 litre engine from the 930 with several minor revisions that made the engine smoother, less prone to turbo lag and more powerful with a total output of 320bhp at 5750rpm.
The 964 Turbo is considered to be one of the prettiest 911's built and certainly one of the more powerful. As with any Porsche however, the pitfalls in buying one are manifold and the unwary can end up with bills far exceeding their expectations. One of the most respected specialists that service not only this make but, specifically, this model is Peter Tognola at Tognola Engineering. It was therefore deemed appropriate that he should fully service and supply an MoT test certificate for this example. Full details can be found within the history file.
This lefthand drive example was imported into the UK in 2000 and is now fully registered, service stamps in the owners pack show, encouragingly, garage visits at regular intervals. The black paintwork is in good order in the grey leather interior also belies its age. Well looked after and with a clean bill of health from one of the best in the business, this example is very reasonably priced.
