Hey guys, can't believe this day has come but it has. I was debating on what to do over the past few months but now I think its time to let someone else enjoy the car. After getting into motorbikes I just don't make enough time for the 964, and don't have the heart to use it as an occasional daily driver as NY drivers will beat the car up too much. The car has only done around 700 miles in the last two years, and I would feel better if someone actually used it rather than it sitting in the garage. The car has taught me a lot, and owning it wouldn't have been possible without the 964 community. This community has been a wealth of knowledge and good people, and ideally I would like it to go to another Rennlist member, just like I bought this car from one. For the moment I'm only listing it here to see what happens.

I honestly can't remember if everything is on this list and it most likely definitely isn't, but it has most of the important bits. I also have a habit of buying stuff when I see a good deal so I have extra parts like CV boots, trim pieces, clutch master cylinder, etc. This is mostly off the top of my head, obviously records to support. Have the factory spare, tire pump and original tool kit as well.

Will list more pictures soon.


Important Stuff Wise: (Comes with binder of records - See 964 Records Attachment for overview)
-Clean Carfax/Title with 127k on the clock
-Original Single State Paint (Had a detail 4 years ago)
-Was a California Car Until 2009 - no road salt exposure
-Rare Locking Diff Option - code 220
-Original Sports Seats (literally the best thing ever, comfy and hold you in place like nothing else) [Driver side bolster was reupholstered by previous owner]
-Cashmere Interior
- Extensive Top end motor and clutch rebuild at 103k (11K Receipt) - Valve Adjustment at 117k
-Oil lines done with engine service
-Rear brakes upgraded to four pots with the appropriate brake proportioning valve
-New rotors and pads, with stainless lines
-Distributor rebuild and belt service
-New Oil Pressure Sender
-New O2 Sensor
-New Plugs and Coils
-Transmission, brake and steering fluid flushed
-New Oil Cooler and Ceramic Temp Sensor
-New Battery - 2018
-BBS LeMans Wheels- Original gold BBS Finish, all original BBS bolts.
-RS Motor Mounts and RS front Sway Bar
-Front control arms with SuperPro bushings all around
-Rothsport Steering Rack Bushings
-Cat Bypass and Gpipe with Steve Weiner Rennsport 93chip
-HD Bilstein Shocks with H&R Turbo/RSA Red Springs
-Front Strut Bar
-FD Motorsports Short Shifter with Function First **** and Custom Redline shift boot
-SRP Pedal Set with Throttle Pedal Extension
-Euro H4 Headlights with upgraded bulbs - turn and brake lights upgraded to quality LED
-Cult Werke RS Air Ducts
-Clear Corners (apparently tough to find these days)
-Tail Lights and Center Portion refurbished - professionally painted Candy Red
-Rear wiper delete (Still have the wiper, apparently tough to find so didn't sell)
-MOMO Steering wheel - bridge plug disables both airbags
-Aero Side Mirrors
-Rennline Fire Extinguisher Mount and Mini Extinguisher (Moves with Passenger Seat)

-Comes with several of the OEM parts, LiftBars for DIY work, miscellaneous spare parts, etc.

The Nitpicks:
-This is my opinion is a driver car, and was so when I purchased it. As such the front end has a typical amount of rock chips as one would expect. If you're looking for a garage queen this probably isn't the car for you.
-The drive side timing chain cover is wet (not dripping, just wet ~ which is typical) but I have the whole kit to replace everything (and its a lot of things, tons of washers, nuts, etc. ). Didn't do it yet because not leaking, just panicked when saw it, OCD.
-One of the short oil lines from the tank to the crankcase is a bit wet too (also have the oil line)
-Driver side seat has a bit of typical wear
-Front tub has been undercoated, once in a blue moon I will lightly scrape if very steep driveway, so I touch it up accordingly.
-The most annoying issue is the slight pull to the left under braking, which happens sometimes, not always. I was planning to rebuild/refresh the calipers.


I will try to get some more pictures up a little later, new phone so need to find them on the PC. I'm sure I'm forgetting some things, but I believe the main parts are here.

Gorgeous!

Iím also in to bikes, but having sold some great Porsches for various reasons I find myself back in the market for a P car.

My advice, donít do it unless you need the funds. Youíll find yourself looking again and these cars arenít getting any easier to find.

I go back and forth but I just don't see myself using it much, especially if tight with time. I'l think about it more I suppose

Sorry for the late reply, I'm not waiting on much and will take offers. I have a buyer coming in tomorrow but who knows what will happen.
