Introduced in 1989, the 964 was the penultimate air cooled 911. Production was initially limited to the all-wheel drive Carrera 4. However, in 1990, the much lighter and rear-wheel drive Carrera 2 was released and quickly became the best selling and most desirable model within the 964 range.
The engine was a classic Porsche motor. A 3.6 litre straight six that produced 247 bhp. In its most sought-after specification, this was mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. In recent years, the Porsche 964 Carrera 2 has gained a great following and prowess amongst Porsche enthusiasts. There is no doubting the impact that many recent reviews of the 964 Carrera 2 have had on their desirability. In 2013, Evo magazine journalist, Richard Meaden, wrote an outstanding review of the car. He wrote at great length about the driving experience that the Carrera 2 was able to offer. He said, “the engine sound terrific and really pulls hard. There’s plenty of grip to lean on and when you begin to work it, the handling balance is beautifully expressive.” This really emphasises how the great appeal of the 964 Carrera 2 is that the lucky owner can use the car on a daily basis and really enjoy the experience due to the cars fantastic level of competence.
The car on offer here is presented in the classic colour combination of Guards red with linen leather interior. This car has a fantastic history and retains its original books, tool kit, jack, compressor and the file contains many original invoices and MOT’s. It is an original UK supplied car that was registered new to its first owner by Malaya in West Sussex on the 11th of August 1990. The car has 12 official Porsche service stamps and has a complete Porsche service history up until 2006. In 2007, the car moved into the hands of a private collector where the car remained for nearly ten years. In 2016 the car was sold and in the same year, the car underwent a complete re-commissioning at the hands of the fully trained Porsche mechanics and technicians here at Hexagon. The extensive work carried out came to total £23,000 and is one of the many reasons for this car being such fantastic condition.
This is an incredible opportunity to acquire one of the lowest mileage and best specified 964 Carrera 2’s available. With a manual gearbox and the highly desirable factory option of air conditioning, it is unlikely that one will find a better example anywhere. With only 13bhp less than a 964 RS, this opportunity represents extraordinary value for money. Offered with four new tyres, a new clutch, alternator and battery, this wonderful, unmolested car, is available for immediate viewing at our London showroom and is a prospect that surely cannot be missed.
