Lot 185 - 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet
|Odometer reading||98,000 miles|
|Estimate||£28,000 - £34,000|
Known internally as the 964, Porsche's new generation 911 debuted in 1989 and was available in two (Carrera 2) and four-wheel drive (Carrera 4) guises with its familiar silhouette clothing a radically revamped platform. Boasting a drag coefficient of just 0.32 thanks to its deeper bumpers, smoother sills and flatter floorpan, high-speed stability was maintained by a self-deploying rear spoiler which rose above 48mph. Powered by an extensively reworked 3.6 litre air-cooled flat-six equipped with twin spark plugs per cylinder and a re-mapped Bosch Motronic fuel injection, the 964 claimed an impressive 250bhp and 229lbft of torque. Fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, most variants were reputed to be capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds with a top speed of over 160mph.
First registered on the 7th August 1990 this Cabriolet boasts a full service history from new and comes with a huge history file which includes a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity amongst other documentation. Recently the car has been fitted with new brakes and a heater system and has had a major overhaul. Finished in white with a contrasting blue interior, the car comes with a MoT test certificate valid until February 2018 with no advisories. The 964’s are fast climbing in value, particularly manual versions and this represents one of the most accessible on the market today.
