In 1993, Porsche manufactured a limited number of Porsche 911 from the 964 series as a special edition to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the 911 model. Technically, they were Carrera 4 turbo look coupés, with a number of features that set them apart, most noteworthy a titanium-coloured limited-edition plaque with an individual number. This Jubi, as they are affectionately referred to, bears the number 295, and it was first owned by a businessman in Saarbruecken, Germany. He left it in his will to his grandson, so it stayed in the same familiy until 2015 when the current owner bought it. He straight away treated it to a large service which included new brakes and brake pipes as well as a new battery. Altogether € 6,500 were spent to bring the Jubi back into good shape. The anniversary model runs on its original 17″ cup rims.
The car features a 20 mm lower ride, cup exhaust, as well as the 92 litre fuel tank, all of which was installed ex-works, plus a performance enhancement to 199 kW (280 hp). Further amenities include heated seats, air-conditioning, trip computer and sunroof. The viola-metallic paint and rubicon-grey interior, introduced specifically for the Jubi edition, look breathtakingly beautiful on this rare car. Will 295 be your new lucky number?
After 16 years of production, the highly popular “G model” of the Porsche 911 was due for a thorough makeover in 1989. The successor, which bore the internal code 964, is said to have shared no more than 15 % of its parts with model it replaced. While retaining the characteristic basic design, the 964 brought a cornucopia of technical innovations. For the first time in a 911, all wheel drive, derived from the technology carrier Porsche 959, and the Tiptronic automatic gearshift became available. Power steering, airbags as well as ABS brakes likewise found their way into the 911. The suspension was revised substantially, it now featured coil springs and shock absorbers instead of torsion bars. From the outside, the most noticeable change lay in the large, integrated bumpers, as well as in the electric rear spoiler which was raised and lowered according to the travelling speed.
In the rear, there was still the air-cooled six-cylinder boxer engine – now with twin-spark – which most commonly had 3.6 litres of displacement, though 3.3 and 3.75 litre variants were available, as well as turbo engines.
The 964 was the last 911 model which was offered as a traditional Targa with the removable roof.
