This 1990 model Porsche 911 Carrera 4 convertible was originally delivered to Italy. It is said to have been regularly serviced and maintained. The odometer displays an unwarranted mileage of 152,000 km. This Porsche is a matching numbers car.
This beautiful sports car runs on 17″ Cup rims in good condition, almost entirely devoid of kerb damage. The car has been completely repainted in dove blue metallic (Porsche colour code L37B). The interior has traces of use, appropriate for a well-kept car which is already 25 years old. The blue leather seats do not sag, but the dashboard is slightly cracked from exposure to intense UV radiation. On the right hand side of the vehicle as well as in the rear, traces of a previous accident damage are visible.
The 3.6 litre 6-cylinder boxer engine in the rear produces 184 kW (250 hp) of power and sends drive to all four wheels by means of the tried-and-tested G64/00 5-speed manual gearbox. The Porsche 964 also features electrically adjustable mirrors and seats, air conditioning, tinted windscreen and a leather steering wheel. The dark blue canopy top is in a presentable condition.
All in all, an interesting and competitively priced modern classic!
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.
