Description

About this Collectable

The Porsche 964 combines the best of both worlds. This generation still has the classic look, but has since been considerably modernized in all aspects. As a convertible with Tiptronic automatic transmission, this example is perfect for a relaxed sunday afternoon drive. With an Amethyst exterior and a matching Magenta interior, this car is finished in a unique, yet stylish combination.

The evolution of the 911 had been going on since the 1960s, but it was only in 1989 that this model was thoroughly renewed for the first time. This isn't obvious from the outside, because the iconic design remained largely intact, including the upright headlights.

Nevertheless, this car was a lot more modern than the 911 G underneath. In fact, 85% of the parts were new. For example, the rear torsion bars were replaced by coil springs, and the car was equipped with things like ABS and power steering. There was also an electrically folding spoiler. Together with the new bumpers, this made the 911 a lot more aerodynamic, despite the fact that the basic design remained the same.

In the back, of course, an air-cooled six-cylinder boxer engine can be found. However, this enginge was also new at the time. Where the outgoing 911 Carrera had a 3,2 liter engine, the 964 is equipped with a 3,6 liter six-cylinder. This larger engine sends 250 hp and 320 Nm of torque to the rear wheels. This is enough to reach a top speed of 256 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 in 6,2 seconds.

Two of the most important innovations were four-wheel drive and Tiptronic, both of which were available for the first time on a 911. This particular 964 is equipped with the latter, but not with the first. This 911 is still an old school RWD car, but you can leave the shifting to the car. Perfect for a relaxed cruise with the roof open. If you prefer to shift yourself, that is of course possible as well, with Tiptronic in manual mode.

This example is finished in a colour that was already special at the time, but even more special nowadays. The exterior is painted in Amethyst Metallic, while the interior is finished in Magenta. A special, yet stylish colour combination.

Service history

This 964 was imported to the Netherlands in 1999 by official Porsche dealer Eindhoven. Maintenance has always been carried out at a Porsche dealer and in recent years at a Porsche specialist (see photos for the overview on TheCollectables.nl). The most important points from the recent maintenance history are:
2015 - 182.090 km - Porsche specialist Paul Geeris: major service (front wishbone revision, windshield, rear lights + reflector bar, headlight glasses, exhaust tailpipe, rear engine bearings replaced)
2010 - 176.705 km - Porsche specialist Paul Geeris: complete engine overhaul (€7.000)

In 2019 the car is equipped with a new battery. Apart from that, no major maintenance has been carried out in the period since 2015. The car has been driven less than 2.000 km during that time.

The car was repainted once, but it is not known exactly when and where this happened.
