The new 964 version of the Porsche 911 that was launched in 1989 was seen as rather futuristic in its day due to the smooth integration of its body-color bumpers and front bodywork with the body itself; but looking back, the 964 cars now fit neatly in Porsche history, leading up to the 993 models that bid farewell to a long legacy of air-cooled 911s.
While the car looked suspiciously like it might be a mere reskin of the 930, 87 percent of the components were new or redesigned, according to Porsche. The flat-six engine was pushed out to 3.6 liters and 250 hp—with strong and steady torque delivery—and this generation was known by enthusiasts as far more dynamically predictable than the 930.
The four-wheel-drive Carrera 4 was the form in which the 964 made its debut in 1989, and it is now mainly selected by connoisseurs in snowy states due to its all-weather tractability.
All the 964 Porsches are also distinguished by their large rear spoilers that extend upward at 50 mph, then return to rest position below 6 mph.
The 964 today appeals to Porsche aficionados for its somewhat more refined ride and handling (with coil springs and shocks in back), and much-improved cabin comforts—including a full-length center console, and height-adjustable leather seats—combined with an overall driving experience that's a little more direct compared to the 993 that followed it.
Anti-lock brakes were standard on all models, as were dual front airbags. A dual-mass flywheel and variable-assist power steering added to the advances in refinement. Only 62,172 of this generation were built—less than either the 930 it replaced or the 993 it preceded.
These cars got automatic climate control, as well as more effective air conditioning and heating systems.
This 964 has an original Porsche 993 body, which is fully registered a was rebuilt in Germany in 2006. The car offers the look of the 993 with the lighter 964 chassis and engine, the best from both generations.
The car was exported to Denmark in 2009 and in 2017 imported to Czech Republic. The current milleage of the car is 140.000 kilometres with a fully documented service history.
It has a new clutch, 18" turbo wheels, ABS, xenon lamps and sports exhaust. The Original color of the car was a rare Baltic (Dove) Blue Metallic.
It is already possible to register the car as a historic vehicle.
