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 the 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 very well-presented example was registered new on 4th February 1993 and is presented in Grand Prix White paintwork and has more recently been fitted with a new set of gold 18” BBS style alloy wheels shod with new tyres all round. Showing circa 125,000 miles on the odometer, this Porsche has been treated to much maintenance work throughout its life including a top end engine rebuild at circa 70,000 miles. Reported to run and drive very well the 964 looks superb and is arguably one of the most desirable specifications being a manual Carrera 4. Offered with a history file including a comprehensive service record, sundry bills, old MoT test certificates and the V5C registration document.
