When Porsche first introduced their 964 Turbo in 1990, they had yet to develop a turbocharged version of the 3.6 litre M64 engine and were forced to build the early cars with the old, 3.3 litre 930 Turbo engine which produced a healthy 320bhp but suffered badly from turbo lag.
They finally released the infinitely improved 3.6 964 Turbo engine in Jan ‘93 with an increased output of 360 bhp but, more importantly, the new design had finally cured the turbo lag problem once and for all.
They only produced 1500 versions of this revised model worldwide and only 31 examples were sold new in the UK.
In right and left-hand drive form, these cars are now changing hands at well over £200,000 as the market finally recognises their performance, build quality and rarity.
This stunning example is an original German delivered European specification 3.6 Turbo, which has covered just 89,000 kilometres from new (just over 55,000 miles), and is offered with a service record and all books and manuals.
Pleasingly the 964 was upgraded to X88 specification, endowing the Turbo with a huge 385bhp, a healthy boost over the standard 964 Turbo.
Offered with a UK MoT certificate and NOVA registration, this is the ultimate incarnation of the iconic air cooled 911 Turbo model.
