Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, Porsche introduced the 964 Turbo model in March 1990 as the successor to the 930, choosing to adopt the well-proven 3.3 litre engine from the 930, with several minor revisions that made the engine smoother, less prone to turbo lag and more powerful. Power was improved, with an output of 320bhp at 5750 rpm. A modest total of 3,660 of the 964 Turbo were built, across all markets making them very collectable.
This stunning 3.3 Litre 964 Turbo is finished in the rare colour combination of Metallic black over Matador red leather interior, and still retains its matching number engine and transmission.
Offered with an extensive history file with invoices totalling nearly £115,000 GBP, including a £35,000 engine overhaul in 2006, the addition of a blitz K5C-470R turbocharger, motec ECU and ‘Big Red’ OEM braking system. More recently, the car has been fitted with a coil-over suspension and RH 3.6 Turbo-style wheels. It can be noted that all modifications are desirable options, however can easily be reverted back to original specification.
The Matador red interior has been well-preserved and the door panels, rear seats, rear side panels, parcel shelf, headliner, and dashboard are all described to be in good condition throughout. Based on the condition of the car and the available service documentation, the mileage of 117,000km is believed to be correct. It was in 2006 and at 80,000km that the 964 turbo received its engine overhaul.
Overall, this 964 Turbo is a mostly original, two owner car offered with an extensive file that covers its servicing and its few high-quality modifications, original manuals and in a very desirable colour combination.
The owner informs us that the car is very fun to drive, however one must pay attention when the turbo’s kick in!
