Lot 148: Porsche 964 (911)

Classic, Collectors, Sports and Prestige Cars, Barons (16 July 2012)

The Porsche 964 is the internal designation for this generation of the 911 and was built between 1988 and 1993. It was the successor of the heavily outdated 911 G-model which was built over a very long period of 15 years and featured significant technical innovations as well as styling revisions compared to its predecessor. The 964 was a more modern and comfortable evolution of the 911 while maintaining the classic design of it. The most prominent design changes at the exterior were the new front and rear bumpers which were discussed controversial by 911 enthusiasts. The main technical innovations introduced with the 964 platform included standard power steering and ABS and an optional all-wheel drive system derived from the Porsche 959 supercar. Improved aerodynamics included the front and rear bumper, redesigned underbody. The 964 therewith achieved a very good drag factor of 0.32 allowing the standard Carrera 2 with 250bhp to run 260 km/h, the same top speed as the earlier 911 turbo (930) with an additional 50bhp. Offered here is a 1994 registered 964, 3.6 Cabriolet, which was originally registered in Hong Kong but was imported into the UK in 1998, when it had covered just 32,000km (approx 20,000 miles). The speedometer was changed at that time and the car has now covered a total of 66,000 miles. (46, 700 miles now recorded) Finished in smoke silver with black leather interior, the car is equipped with all of the options associated with the model, including a power hood. The vendor states that the car has seen little use since 2009, spending long periods in storage. It does have service history in support of the mileage and is described as being in good order throughout. It is worth noting that the car is equipped with a Thatcham Cat 1 alarm system. This is a late entry and will not appear in the printed catalogue. A late and/or replacement list is available on the day
