When the 964 was first brought to market, Porsche were keen to emphasise that, although it was patently still a 911, it was in fact 85% different from the outgoing model. The design featured more integrated bumpers and a host of mechanical changes, most significant of which was the availability 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. Careful attention to the aerodynamics reduced the drag coefficient down to 0.32, and with virtually zero lift, stability and road holding at high speed were greatly improved. A new feature was the retractable spoiler which automatically extended at 50 mph and in addition to seriously increasing downforce, also doubled the volume of cooling air fed into the engine compartment. Fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, most variants were reputed to be capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds with a top speed of over 160mph.  H583 DUF was first registered on the 26th of October 1990 and was clearly ordered with a very high specification which included genuine RS Club Sport three-piece Speedline wheels along with a Club Sport Steering Wheel, Mirrors, Rear Spoiler, and Body Kit. Presented in the traditional Guards Red with a Cream Leather interior, it's predominantly an original car having been cosseted all of its life. It's supplied with a full Porsche Service History kept within a Black Leather presentation folder alongside all of its MoT Certificates, some old tax discs, and a file of actual receipts detailing the upkeep of this stunning Porsche.The current custodian of this 964 is an ex-F1 Technician and, being a bit of a perfectionist, decided to utilise his hard-won skills by fully rebuilding H583's engine although it didn't actually require it. The car has only covered a few miles since the rebuild which is supported by a ream of parts invoices from the Porsche Centre at Kendall. At the same time, the gearbox was overhauled with the whole drivetrain inspected and fluids changed making sure that the car was in top form with a new lease of life. Having laboured over every detail, our vendor believes that the engine itself is now in better shape and presents better than when it was new and from the photographs, it certainly appears immaculate. The wheels have been polished and treated to a brand new set of Pirelli P Zeros moulded to an original 1990 pattern. The cabin is said to be in fine fettle and untouched and, pleasingly, is still fitted with the original Radio Cassette Player.The car has been inspected by PCGB in more recent times and they have given it a rubber stamp in terms of authenticity, originality, and panel gaps, making this car a serious contender if you are looking for the best 964 you can find.
