The Porsche 964 is the company's internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models; most prominently, more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation of 911 to be offered with Porsche's Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as options. Porsche chose to re-use the 3.3-litre engine from the 930 with several minor revisions resulting in the engine running more smoothly, being less prone to turbo lag, and more powerful with a total output of 320bhp at 5750rpm. The 964 Turbo is considered to be one of the prettiest 911s to date and certainly one of the most powerful. This beautiful, left-hand drive, 3.3 Litre 964 Turbo was supplied new to (country code C32) the Arab Gulf States in 1992 and is finished in the subtle colour combination of Dark Blue with black leather interior. It was purchased by our vendor in Japan, where it had resided in a private collection. All UK taxes have now been paid and the car is fully UK registered with a current MoT certificate. The odometer is reading an un-warranted 47,801 kilometres (29,702 miles). However, under close inspection, we believe this mileage to be commensurate with its condition. The bodywork all presents very well, and the paintwork retains an excellent shine. The door shuts and panel gaps look even and the whole car retains a sense of originality. The inner wings look unmolested and the interior is especially impressive, with minimal wear to the seats. On the road, this 964 Turbo felt tight and pulled hard through all gears. The stainless steel exhaust system sounded fantastic and the car tracked well, inspiring confidence in the corners and at speed. Despite a limited history file in terms of paperwork, the vehicle will be delivered to the Porsche Centre West London prior to the sale for a complete health check and service. It will also be driven to the NEC from London and prospective bidders are welcome to contact the office for further details. Overall, this 964 is a highly collectable example that presents very well and is massively impressive to drive. We encourage pre-sale inspections and feel it offers a mouth-watering ownership proposition for its next custodian.
