Of all the 911 generations that have come and gone, the 964 is probably my favorite, blending the classic profile with some nice smoothing out touches such as modern bumpers and updated wheels. This is an interesting 964 version, and rare. There were only 20 Turbo S models with the higher horsepower 3.3 liter turbo flat six and this is one of them. Interesting then, that someone decided to modify such a rare car with a later, factory slant nose conversion.

As rare as this 911 is, the modifications just don’t do it for me. The 18″ wheels jack the stance up way too much and the front end conversion is questionable. While the price is certainly in line with similar 911 Turbos of the vintage, and the mileage is good, this car is a classic example of messing with perfection. The changes make it look like a cheap kit car, not the serious autobahn stormer that it actually is.
