1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with 10,604 Miles

Somewhat needless to say, but we don’t see a 964 like this very often at all. Obviously ultra-low-mileage 911s are rare. However, we do come across them with some regularity and, of course, among the limited-production models very low miles is almost the norm. But a fairly standard 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe? I haven’t seen it. I almost wonder how a 964 like this came about. I suspect it was bought with the intention of being part of a collection as the first Carrera 4 model Porsche produced. As a piece of Porsche engineering history it certainly will hold appeal in that regard and here it sits now in original condition as a time capsule from that era. For the very thorough collector it should make for a nice addition.

With a car like this, our interest lies in current condition and its level of documentation. The condition looks great. The paint is in fine shape with no apparent scrapes, nicks, or blemishes visible in the pictures. The interior shows at a similar level. The leather is crisp throughout showing little wear. The same can be said of the engine bay as it looks remarkably clean. For a 911 of this mileage its condition looks as good as we’d hope. It also comes with a good deal of documentation ranging from the original sales material to a variety of service receipts. We can’t tell here if it’s comprehensive, but most everything appears present.

That leaves us with price. The 964 market always has lagged behind the 993, but for certain limited-production vehicles we have seen significant gains at times. Granted, in some cases those values have come back down, but that’s been a feature of the whole air-cooled 911 line. It will be very interesting to see where bidding ultimately takes this one, but with quite a few days left we are already up to $70,300. This will be one to have your eye on.

  1. It’s been many years since I’ve seen a non-special edition 964 with this low miles, and the photos here are stunning. However, you really have to be in love with this particular car to spend upwards of 70k on it (his BIN on ebay is 109k), especially since it has standard colors. I personally don’t see these ever having the same degree of price-appreciation as the 993, since they don’t have the all out classic looks of the 3.2 carrera cars that were also still in production in ’89, or the end-of-an-era panache of the 993.

  2. Don’t look now but the bids up to $97k with reserve not met. The 964’s are drawing higher prices than the 993’s. They made many fewer 964’s. The 993 market has slumped a bit recently and the 964 market is still strong. Take for example the 95 993 with around 19k miles on it which was just on BaT. The high bid was in the upper 60’s, thats all. The 964 here is already at $97 and climbing. Imagine if this was a 92 – 94 Carrera 2 with 10k miles. It would be even higher.

    In terms of appreciation, I would argue that the 964 has already had a greater price appreciation compared to the 993, over the last 4 years. You could have bought a really nice 964 for $20’s 4 or 5 years ago compared to the 993’s which were 10 grand higher. Now the 964’s have more than doubled in value where the 993’s are up 50 to 70 percent, over the same time period.
