When Porsche first introduced their 964 Turbo in 1990 they had yet to develop a turbo version of the 3.6 litre M64 engine and thus released the car with the old 930 Turbo engine which was 3.3 litre and gave 320bhp but was renown to suffer with turbo lag.
They finally released the infinitely improved 3.6 964 Turbo engine in Jan '93 which gave 360 bhp and cured the turbo lag problem once and for all. They only produced 1500 versions of this revised model worldwide, making this particular car one of the rarest and most sought after Porsche models after the 959.
This car is one of those extremely rare and sought after cars that was built new in left hand drive for the German market (as designated by the '00' chassis number). Today it is a matching numbers (chassis, engine and gearbox) car with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity to prove.
In right and left hand drive form these cars are now changing hands at close to £200,000 as the market finally recognises their performance, build quality and rarity. This car has a comprehensive history file which confirms the mileage throughout its life (in Europe and Japan) and is thus offered with a warranted 46,000 kms from new (28,500 miles). Offered from a significant private collection it is in outstanding condition and has all original body panels and original factory paintwork. The original factory build sheet within the history file confirms that it was supplied in Polar Silver with black leather and the following factory options;
Heated seats with adjustable heating range
92 Litre fuel tank

Headlight cleaning system
Symphony RDS Cassette Radio

This is an original and highly collectable car, ready to use and represents a rare opportunity in a fast moving market.
