'964' is Porsche's internal designation for the version of their 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 in the way that the bumpers, spoilers and wheel arches blended cohesively into the bodywork. It was the first iteration of the 911 to be offered with Porsche's 'Tiptronic' automatic transmission and all wheel drive as options. Porsche chose to re-use the 3.3-litre, turbocharged 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 5,750rpm. The sleek silhouette of the 964 was indicative of Porsche's new design philosophy and is regarded in hindsight, as one of the prettiest 911s ever built and certainly, in period, was one of the most powerful.
This lovely example is presented in black with grey leather interior. This model offers incredible performance thanks to its turbocharged air-cooled flat six, exhilarating today as it was back in 1991 giving more modern sports cars a good run for their money. This car comes with a printed Carfax Vehicle History report showing the car had 21 service history records and in the history file are invoices from Porsche of London, USA showing various expenditures in 2021. These are rare, rapid and delectable in looks – a must for the collector and or adrenalin seekers.
*Please be aware that his car is being sold with a NOVA and it is therefore up to the purchaser to apply for a UK registration with the DVLA.
