When the Porsche 964 was first introduced in 1989, Porsche made a point of the fact that it was 85% different from the outgoing 911. The design featured more integrated bumpers and a host of mechanical changes, most significant of which was the introduction of four-wheel drive. The displacement was now up to 3600cc, producing 250bhp, power steering and ABS brakes were now fitted as standard, and the torsion bar rear suspension was replaced with coil springs and shock absorbers. 

This UK-supplied 911 C2 Coupé was delivered new on 1st August 1990 by Ian Anthony of Wilmslow and has an odometer reading today of just 12,000 miles. Factory option codes included Tiptronic transmission, Blaupunkt radio, amplifier, sports seats, rear window wiper, sun-moon-roof and board computer.

This vehicle is without question one of the finest 964s we have offered in recent years. The coachwork is finished in classic Guards Red and the car has never been painted. The Linen Leather interior is presented in beautiful condition and still retains a new-car smell. The engine bay is in stunning order and the car has a current MoT until October 2017. In addition, the original service book shows stamps from 1992, 1994, 1996 and 2011 at 10,924 miles.

The UK registration certificate shows a mere two previous owners from new and the car has most recently formed part of one of the UK's most significant private Porsche collections. We encourage pre-sale inspections on this incredible 911 and urge prospective bidders to come and see this car in the metal. As the 964 continues to grow in popularity amongst tuners and restorers, finding an unmolested example such as this one is becoming extremely difficult.
