Recorded Mileage: 112,000 miles
- Finished in rare Forest Green Metallic
- Extensive history from new
Representing a major step forward, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 versions of the Porsche 911 – code named ‘964’ – were launched in 1989, the former marking the first time that four-wheel drive had been seen on a series-production 911. 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 964’s 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, 247bhp, 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 ‘box a Carrera 2-only option. Its new Type M64 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.
First registered in 1990, this beautiful open-topped 964 Carrera is finished in a highly attractive shade of Forest Green dark metallic with optional sports seats in Linen grey leather, piped in green. The 964 has been clearly very looked after over the year, with an impressive history file dating back 30 years, containing many pages of invoices, receipts, MOT certificates, and a total of 26 stamps in the service book.
Notably the engine was rebuilt 29,000 miles ago, the clutch, flywheel and engine mounts replaced 19,000 miles ago, front and rear shock absorbers and suspension adjustments around 15,000 miles ago. The enthusiastic owner has also added anti roll bars, a performance chip, a cup exhaust bypass and 100 cell sports Cat, FVD sport end silencer, upgraded stereo system,, and an endless list of other minor items such as bushes, seals, distributors, belts, A/C regas, and so on.
This very well sorted 964, in a beautiful and rare colour scheme, is as involving to drive as it is to view. All in all a really great smart 911 which we are sure will bring much pride and driving pleasure for its next owner. The 964 is offered with the relevant book pack, history folder and both sets of keys.
