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 and was the first 911 to be offered with Porsche's Tiptronic gearbox and coil spring suspension. 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.

This beautiful 1991 Porsche 964 Cabriolet with the Tiptronic gearbox is in a fabulous colour scheme and we are informed it drives as well as it looks. This car has a good service history showing that maintenance has been performed predominantly by Porsche or Porsche specialists for all of its life. This includes having the piston rings and top end overhaul at 66,790 miles and the gearbox overhauled in 2005 at 90,200 miles. Finished Cobalt Blue metallic with a Linen leather interior with matching blue piping, the cars comes with 17" twist alloy wheels, Metropole Blue roof, matching Metropole Blue tonneau cover, retractable rear spoiler, Tiptronic gearbox, on board computer, electric windows and electric mirrors. It is supplied with a V5C registration document and a file containing invoices and old MoT test certificates. With the price of air-cooled Porsches having increased exponentially over the past few years, the price of this particular model has excellent scope for appreciation.
