  When the 964 was first brought to market, Porsche was 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. Revised instrumentation featured a large set of warning lights that were tied into the car's central warning system adding to Porsche's reputation for reliability. 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. Initially, it was only available in four-wheel drive form, marketed as the Carrera 4 (C4), however the following year, the two-wheel drive Carrera 2 (C2) was introduced. Finished in Grand Prix White with a distinctive Magenta and Black interior, this pretty, rear-wheel drive, 'Tiptronic', 964 C2 Targa was supplied new to the household of the Sultan of Brunei. It was imported into the UK earlier this year and was registered here, with all import duties paid, in July 2018. The current indicated mileage is just less than 7,000 and the MoT is valid until January 2019.The car was taken to Cavendish Porscha in Nottingham during April for a 12,000-mile service and a full inspection and report. As well as the normal service items, plugs, hoses, clips etc. the car was fitted with a pair of  Fuel Injectors, an Alarm Control Unit, new wheel nuts, various operating switches, air-con drive belt, rotor arms, wiper blades and both bonnet struts. The power steering rack was replaced and the geometry reset. There is an invoice in the file for £3,600 for all this attention. This is a lovely right-hand drive, Carrera 2 Targa from a dry part of the world, and with its tiny mileage and recent comprehensive service, has everything going for it.
