The 964 is Porsche’s internal name for the 911 models manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, the 964 featured significant styling revisions over previous 911s, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive as options.
When Porsche first introduced the 964 Turbo in 1990 they had yet to develop a turbo version of the 3.6-litre M64 engine and so released the car with the old 3.3-litre 930 Turbo motor which made 320bhp but was renowned for turbo lag.
They finally released the infinitely improved 3.6 964 Turbo engine in Jan ‘93. This gave 360bhp and the turbo lag problem was cured once and for all. Only 1500 examples of this revised model were produced worldwide, making this particular car one of the rarest and most sought after Porsche models after the 959.
This delightful Porsche was first registered in 1993 and presented in the desirable colour combination of Guards red with contrasting black leather interior, this is car represents the pinnacle of Porsche design, the 964 turbo.
These are highly sought after models of this iconic German marque and, with only 79,000km showing on the odometer, it is difficult to match the condition of this car to any other.
