The 964 was produced between 1989 and 1994, and a standout car for its time which is possibly even more sought-after today. It has a sleek, modern look that is still recognisable and unique, which made it a very popular donor car for people choosing to build a backdated, or ‘resto-mod’ 911. The fact that so many 964’s were used as the base for a ‘resto-mod’ build, means that very few un-modified examples remain, especially in rear wheel drive Carrera 2 guise.
The 964 was the first 911 to be available with an all-wheel drive system and a special lightweight chassis that made it incredibly agile and capable of taking corners with ease. The engine was powerful and fuel efficient, making it a great choice for performance, or daily driving. It was also the first 911 to be fitted with an adjustable spoiler, which allowed the driver to adjust their aerodynamics and improve performance.
This particular example is the ‘holy grail’ specification, being a non-sunroof, manual gearbox Carrera 2. This car is a C07 model, meaning it was originally delivered to Italy and was imported by our vendor in 2021 and is now showing just 112,000km (circa 69,000 miles). The original ‘option’ sticker is still visible on the underside of the bonnet, showing option codes 220 (locking differential) and 573 (air conditioning). Our vendor has recently fitted the Porsche classic communication system, meaning the car has Bluetooth & DAB radio but he has kept the original radio, should you wish to return the car to standard.
This 911 was on the Automotoclub Storico Italiano (ASI) register, meaning it was verified to retain its original engine and specification. Additionally, this 911 is part of the Porsche classic UK register. The car comes with a good service history, with the most recent service having been completed in September 2021, just 9,000km ago. It was also treated to new brake discs and pads all round in 2022, at a cost of £2,090 in total.
The values of 964’s have rapidly increased in the past decade, now overtaking those of their younger siblings, the 993. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a completely standard, manual, coupé, non-sunroof, Carrera 2 and this example ticks all of the boxes. The car is ready to be enjoyed by the next owner and with Porsche celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2023, there will be no shortage of events to attend with the car.
