In 1989, Porsche introduced the first major change to the 911 with the launch of the 964, still looking like a 911 it was claimed by Porsche to feature 87% all new components over the outgoing 3.2 Carrera. The 911 was traditionally a 2wd car but this new 964 initially featured a new 4wd driveline and a powerful 3.6 twin plug engine, with a 2wd variant following shortly afterwards in 1990.
New coil sprung suspension, ABS and power steering offered a significantly more modern driving experience over the outgoing Carrera whilst performance was brisk too with 0-60mph coming up in 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 162mph, figures that are still respectable today.
Fast forward 30 years and the 964 looks like a classic 911, being the last to feature the upright headlamps, but with its modern underpinnings, it offers a refined driving experience.
This example is Carrera 2 Manual coupe and was supplied on 1st of March 1993 by Isaac Agnew (Official Porsche Centre) meaning it features the teardrop mirrors and cup 1 wheels. It is finished in Black with black leather interior. The current owner approached us back in 2013 wanting a black on black 964 C2 Manual Coupe. Although not matching his desired specification we did manage to source this example, which was originally fitted with a Linen interior. He liked the car and we were then asked to change the original Linen for black leather, which is how the car is presented today.
