The Porsche 911 is easily considered one of the most coveted sports cars of all time. Its lengthy history extends over 50 years of production and to this day, the iconic design lines are still utilized. Throughout the 911’s long life, it has steadily evolved becoming more refined but still maintaining the essence of its roots. The air-cooled era spawned some of Porsche’s greatest creations and by 1989, they released what is referred to as the 964 series. The 964 was a milestone in the 911 lineage, as it saw a variety of technologies that were yet to be integrated as standard features in addition to having a new, reengineered chassis. In terms of major cosmetic changes, the 964 received redesigned front and rear bumpers for better aerodynamics and an electronic, self-deploying rear wing for added down force at high speeds. ABS and power steering were made a standard feature for the 964, as well as a 3.6L flat six that propelled the car to 60mph in 5.5 seconds. Porsche did not stop there because one could either choose a rear wheel drive platform in the Carrera 2 or opt for four-wheel drive in the Carrera 4. The 964 was often overlooked by Porsche aficionados until the recent appreciation of air-cooled Porsches which sparked new interest in the once undervalued 964.

The example on offer is a 1994 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 widebody having traveled 63,200 miles from new. This example wears an expertly executed repaint in the original factory color as well as reupholstered front seats, again finished in its factory colors. According to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this example was finished in Midnight Blue Metallic (special order color code F8) over a Light Grey and Cobalt Blue leather interior. It also equipped with a left power seat, cruise control, amplifier system, electric sunroof, CD player, leather covered instrument rings, and rim caps with Porsche crest from the factory. Unfortunately, the history of this example is not fully known but it has been under care of a Porsche collector and enthusiast for the past two years and comes with a clean Carfax. Most importantly, this car is 1 of approximately 267 Carrera 4 widebody cars produced for the North American market. This “turbo look” option package provided all of aesthetic elements of the Turbo, which included larger wheels and widebody along with turbo performance features including brakes and suspension. Essentially, it is a 964 turbo minus the turbo.

Cosmetically, the car is in excellent condition with superior paint quality being the first thing one will notice. It shows evenly down the lines of the car and has a mirror like shine with no inconsistencies in the finish. The only item that could be improved upon is a proper detail and buffing to remedy some very light surface scratching/swirl marks on the hood and rear fenders. They would only be noticed during a close inspection under the right light and do not require any immediate attention. The panel gaps throughout are spot on, showing as they would from the factory. All of the glass is crisp and free of any common blemishes (scratches, chips, cracks) while the rubber seals and moldings have no dry rot or damage. An examination of the five spoke alloy wheels will conclude that they have been well maintained as the rest of the car has, with no curb rash or flaws to make note of. Typical of the 964 series, the rear tail light lenses have slight sun fading but no cracking.

Continuing our assessment, the interior is definitely one of the highlight features on this example, not only because of the unique color combination but also the fantastic condition it is in. The front seats are simply impeccable with no notable flaws, presenting like new with the backseats being original and in near perfect condition. This is the story with the remainder of the interior; the door panels, dash, leather wrapped gauges, rugs, and headliner are in excellent condition with no major flaws to note and appear to be original. In addition, the door jams are well kept, having maintained their original paint albeit some small chips/scratches. The electrical components are in complete working order; the window motors are still strong, the interior lighting is functional and the alpine radio is operational. Additionally, both the heat and air-conditioning work properly as do all exterior lights.

The remarkable condition of this example carries over to the engine bay as it is cleanly, neat, and tidy. All of the surfaces are clean with no serious faults with the original cadmium plated items still in excellent condition. The factory stickers are present and the engine number indicates that this is a matching-numbers example. The front trunk displays much of the same characteristics, having no major blemishes or any evidence of accident history. Factory inspection and torque markings are evident throughout the truck area. The factory spare wheel, jack, tools, and air compressor are all present. Also, unlike 99% of other Porsches from this era, the struts for the front trunk lid are fully functional. The undercarriage is also free of any rusting or major road rash as well as the underside of the engine being very clean for a 23-year-old car.

This tedious care taken by the current owner has resulted in a well-sorted 964 that runs and drives without any issues. Even when cold, the engine starts with ease and does not smoke. Once up to temperature, this example performs very well. It pulls strong with no strange vibrations or hesitation and the steering is tight and responsive. It tracks straight down the road with fluid shifts and smooth braking. The tires are modern Yokohamas that have approximately 70% of tread life remaining and do not appear to have any cracks or dry rot.

The Porsche Carrera 4 offers heritage, performance, and iconic 911 styling with a proper air-cooled flat-six to match. This particular example boasts one of the most extravagant color combinations coupled with the desirable widebody configuration, resulting in a rare and attractive pairing. With its exceptional cosmetic and mechanical condition, this car would be an excellent addition to any collection. Offered with the sale are the original books, tools, jack, air-compressor, and Certificate of Authenticity.

Even with mileage and condition of the amazon green car the seller could have asked more and gotten it.

Not sure you will find a nice 3.3 turbo with this mile and options for this little. A 3.6 will set you back almost double.

If you follow these cars closely it is a fair asking price given the condition and miles. These widebody cars are highly sought after by collectors and were extremely limited production. Not to mention that lot of these have been exported out of the country, and they don't come up for sale that often.

I know of one example with around 45k miles on it that recently traded hands for $115k.

We are certainly open to a reasonable offer. If anyone has any questions please DM me on here or email me directly at [email protected]. Thank you.
