(Funny, till now I thought the only '94's were those WB C4's.)

Definitely this is a car you were meant for. A rare find, indeed.
Thanks very much - I have liked it for quite a while, I'm really glad that I managed to buy it after having been interested in it for a few months now!

Yeah, I had heard that - in fact, it was a major deciding factor for me....

The search is over! Congrats, you ended up with a great looking car. Nice story about the dealer, you were patient (which is tough with such a nice car on the lot) and it all worked out. Great news.

yellowducman,
Yes more pictures. I love those wheels on a 964, simple design and BIG. More pics.
Thanks - it was a long hard search, I have seen quite a few nice 964's since I started looking. Lots of nice ones out there - but timing is everything.

Thanks - best of luck to you in your search. Rennlist has been a great help, it is an excellent resource that should definitely come in handy while you're looking. As mentioned, the community here is very friendly

I talked to the owner/dealership and that car was an uber hot commodity. Many phone calls. The owners of the shop were using it as their favorite for daily driver. Note this is a shop that has plenty of TT Porsches, Ferraris, and big Mercs.

As it goes, I hope Gokart does not hate me for telling. Anyway this elderly guy owned the 964 and he traded in for a 996 despite the chagrin and advice of the shop owners not to. This 964 is a nice car. There are a couple of nicks on the bumper, but it is impressive original paint overall. The car is stock, the only mods I could find were the vent kit, nice stereo, and an odd dial for radar. Otherwise it is full rear under tray unmolested. I could not find an oil leak. It was funny the owner knew exactly what I was flashlighting for and said, nothing to find there.

Really? So you went by and had a look at it before I bought it? I'd be interested to hear more about that if you feel like sending me a PM

Interesting story. They had told me the same thing, that the elderly previous owner had it for ~8 years and drove it quite gently. It certainly looks and feels like it was garaged and loved on. I do have some paperwork on the car that shows it was serviced at some high-end dealers (I looked them up) in West Palm Beach, FL and Atlanta, GA. All good stuff.

pete000 - That is one of the best photos of a 964 I've ever seen!

Balance, color, action, the car AND you, + the Mrs. (I presume). The blurring of ther right rear is fantastic. Was it part of the photo or Photoshopped?

And it's GP Whte.

Without the bra, I think it would have been one of the top three or four 964 pics I've ever seen.

this is great! i like gp white too. my car is black like most of the cars i've owned. never liked white until i started looking at porsches particularly the 964. i like how the contours, the panel gaps and the black trim all show. nice balance of light and dark. very cool.

Yep thats me and my wife doing the "Snake" up to the Rock Store in the LA mountains (neat place for breakfast, Leno's always up there). There is a guy who takes pictures up there every weekend then posts them on his web site. That day he was in a ditch getting a low angles. I saw the flash go off but never saw him.

I just added a bit of motion blur in Photo shop for drama.

I wish I had left the bra off that day ! Oh well not a bad picture.

Thanks!

Your car is lovely, also - I really really like the coloring of your wheels, with the silver lip, and Carrera script. Very distinctive.
