1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S ‘Package Car’

The Holy Grail. Indiana Jones found it and lost it; Arthur and his knights were thwarted by the French and arrested by British police. It is the thing we all search for, but is a constantly shifting and elusive form. For automotive enthusiasts there are numerous possibilities, but for fans of the 911 Turbo this is the model about which most will speak. The 964 Turbo could never be pinned down. Because a turbocharged version of the M64 initially wasn’t ready the earliest cars used the 3.3 liter flat-six from the 930. Then in 1992, as a final send-off for that 3.3 liter engine, a Turbo S was produced prior to the introduction of the proper 3.6 liter Turbo. But even this would not be the last model, because in 1994 Porsche took all of the remaining 964 Turbo chassis, some 93 cars, and created the 3.6 liter Turbo S. Most of those were also optioned as a Flatnose, but there were two variants that remain some of the rarest 911 models ever produced. The Japanese market received 10 examples, all painted Polar Silver Metallic, fitted with the 935-derived Slantnose, made popular on the 930, rather than the 968-derived Flatnose of the Turbo S cars. And then there is the model we see here: only offered in the US market there were 17 ‘Package’ cars, which had all of the standard Turbo S options EXCEPT the Flatnose. The front end was mostly akin to any other 964 Turbo. 17 were produced, 10 in Black, 2 with Black over Cashmere leather, 1 of those was an exhibition vehicle. All of which leaves this car as a 1 of 1.

Visit www.flachbau.com for the full registry and history of these fantastic cars. If we wanted to split hairs, my own personal Holy Grail would be the 1 Speed Yellow Turbo S Flatnose produced for the US market, but it’s hard to ignore the greatness of the car here. Black and Tan is such a traditionally iconic combination and provides such a great contrast of light and dark in the interior. For this to be the only available example of those produced without the Flatnose makes this a truly special automobile. The downside with any of these is that they will almost never be driven given the insane values they command, but frankly as long as they aren’t wrecked they will always get top dollar. Why not enjoy it just a little?

  1. I agree that this car should be driven more. Even at an average of 20 miles a week for 48 weeks a year it would only have about double the miles.

  2. I can’t stand when dealers list anything for sale and don’t list a price? It’s seems a bit slimy. How do you know that they won’t ask more from me than you? And how do you know that they are not discriminating? Not pointing to it here but just posing a rational question. Imagine you went to the store to buy a gallon of milk and asked for the price. The clerk looked at you up and down and decided that it’ll cost you $4.00. The next guy walks in and he’s wearing a Rolex and Prada shoes. Does he get charged more? It’s not a very honest and straightforward question or answer either way, just an observation…

  3. The reason why prices are not posted has nothing to do with ‘observation’ or being ‘slimy’. For many years we posted our prices on our website and magazines. Unfortunately two things happened. 1) dealers or private sellers would take our pricing and use it towards their cars that were not as nice as ours. We pride ourselves in representing some of the finest cars available and there is a premium for that. 2) people would pick up old issues of various magazines and demand that we should honor pricing from years ago. I think it’s pretty obvious that these cars have been trending upwards over the years.
    Nevertheless we answer all inquires about pricing so please contact us at anytime.
    Thank you for this spotlight and this car has been recently sold. Waiting for final payment before I remove it from my inventory section.

  4. Very true and accurate response. I suppose you could enter the prices on your website? That way they could be changed by the day or by the minute as the comodity rises and falls? Many others in the classic car business do just that. Awesome cars though!

  5. Brett, we appreciate you taking the time to stop by and glad to hear that the car has found a new owner. Thanks!

    I think we should also keep in mind that it’s very unlikely there exists a legitimate buyer of a car like this that would be deterred by having to inquire about the price. Sure, for our own curiosity it’d be great to know, but it’s not really going to affect the potential sale of the car to any significant degree.

  6. Brett – Thank you for your post. I firmly respect dealers that are engaged with their customer base and who read the same media outlets that help to keep the enthusiasts informed. GCFSB is a great site that takes the pulse of the German car market daily. Hope to see more of your cars on it from time to time.

  7. Good education as to why sometimes prices are not posted. I couldn’t care less what the price of this car is outside of sheer curiosity.

    Sloan seems to carry some of the highest quality inventory and usually posts pricing of most “regular” cars.

    For the super unique / rarebirds – I can understand not advertising the price. There is a small market of buyers and sellers. When someone is spending well into the 6 figures (and someone collecting), it can be easy to manipulate the market with things like fake ads, etc.

    “True Buyers” of these cars will “call to inquire”. Based on hearing someone bought it – I’m sure a reasonable number was agreed where both parties were happy.

    WHAT AN AMAZING CAR! Turbo 3.6 – to me – is THE HOLY GRAIL of 911’s and the car I will love the most for the rest of my life!

  8. they have an amazing showroom/warehouse in New Haven CT….never bought from them, know people who have…and bottom line…they have some great stuff and they get top $$$…they & RPM in Texas are great shops…
    Not Sure if they still have the Turbo 3.6 w/ the black/red interior…..but the prior owner was from Westchester NY…I believe he bought it from Sloan and then sold or consigned it back to them…
    at any rate if anyone has never been in one…or gets a chance to be in one…strap yourself in and hold on…it is without a doubt a brilliant ride….better than any other P-Car Turbo experience I’ve been lucky enough to have!..
    just the straight 3.6 Turbos are ranging between 200-300k depending on mileage/condition….and can only imagine an “S” or better yet a flat-nose “S”….
    but 500k???…now you are in CGT territory….
