Description

Representing a major step forward in the development of Porsche’s perennial 911, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 (‘Type 964’ in factory parlance) had been launched in 1989, the former marking the first time that four-wheel drive had been seen on a series-production model. Porsche had experimented with four-wheel drive on the 959 supercar, and many of the lessons learned from the latter influenced the design of the new Carreras’ chassis and suspension.

Face-lifted but retaining that familiar shape, the newcomers had been given a more extensive work-over mechanically, 87% of parts being claimed as entirely new. The pair shared the same 3.6-litre, flat-six engine, while power-assisted steering (another 911 ‘first’), anti-lock brakes and a five-speed manual transmission were standard on both, with the Tiptronic auto gearbox a Carrera 2-only option. Its new engine enabled the 964 to out-perform the old ‘3.2’ yet still met the latest emissions regulations, top speed increasing to 162mph with 60mph attainable in 5.4 seconds (5.6 seconds Tiptronic).

Evoking memories of the legendary 2.7 and 3.0-litre RS and RSR ‘homologation specials’ of the 1970’s, in 1992 Porsche introduced a Type 964 Carrera RS, which was a lightweight variant like its illustrious forebears. It was based on the ‘Carrera Cup’ competition car and sold in the European market only. The Carrera RS retained the 3.6-litre engine, which was boosted in maximum output to 260bhp.

Delivered new on the 28th of April 1992 to its first private owner in France, this fastidiously looked after 964RS has travelled a mere 45,800km from new. Finished in white over black, the car has had only 2 previous owners and comes with a Porsche Scheckheft, numerous bills and invoices confirming mileage, space saver wheel, original tools, compressor, and is fitted with its original magnesium wheels.
