|Porsche had to be innovative and finally come away from the 911 design that had its roots in 1965 and had been developed to its maximum potential.|
So the new 964 in 1989 was considered to be 85% new as compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2. The first 964s available in 1989 were all wheel drive equipped “Carrera 4” models; Porsche added the rear wheel drive Carrera 2 variant to the range in 1990. Both variants were available as a coupe, Targa or Cabrio. Porsche substantially revised the suspension, replacing torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers. Power steering and ABS brakes were added to the 911 for the first time; both were standard. The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush with the car for better aerodynamics. A new electric rear spoiler raised at speeds above 50 mph (80 km/h) and lowered down flush with the rear engine lid at lower speeds.
I remember seeing the new models at the motor show in 1989 and seeing the departure from tradition and the innovations were obvious using technology gained from the highly successful 959 project and finally modernising the classic 911 shape to the market trend.
This stunning C4 has the ideal specification of Guards red with black leather piped red,manual gearbox and electric sunroof.
She was pdi checked by AFN Reading in Oct 1992 and from then on has a continual service history including the all important original service book and invoices.
There are old mots and a chronological breakdown of work carried out making this probably the best condition 964 available .
On the road the 964 is a wonderful drive with the classic feel of the traditional 911 but with a certain modernity available making it feel indestructible and at 72000 miles this one has many years of use left.
We reject many 964s that are offered in part exchange due to poor condition,lack of history etc.and many are now used as donor cars for Recreations so perfect condition cars are extremely rare now and in line with the range are a sound investment.
