1994 Porsche 911 C4 Widebody

The Porsche 964 was a 911 that wore many hats. Available in the usual Turbo and non-Turbo guise, this was the 911 that introduced all-wheel drive to the equation in normally aspirated models. In 1994, a Speedster version arrived on the scene and along with the race ready RS variant, a US market RS America, based on the Carrera 2, was offered. Along with the multitude of different models, one could request the widebody option, which gave owners the look of the Turbo without the added cost, or horsepower, for that matter. This C4 for sale in Florda is the recipient of an extensive rebuild in Germany and is a sharp example of one of those rare widebody non-Turbos.

The odometer still shows the original miles of 111,000 when the vehicle was purchased before the rebuild. The owner decided not to roll the mileage to 0, and chose to leave it with it’s original miles. Please note, the vehicle was completely rebuilt from the tub up.

Don’t miss your chance to own a truely rare vehicle. There are not many of these vehicles left in the world, and there are no other 1994 Carrera 4 Porsches with this level of detail and craftsmanship.

While the level of work done to this car is certainly impressive, I’m not so sure that a rebuilt C4, regardless of whether it is a widebody or not, constitutes much more than what a 964 would cost these days, which is generally in the $50,000 to $60,000 range for a clean, unmolested example. The cost of the rebuild was certainly not cheap, but whether it is feasible to make that cost up will remain to be seen.

    “The Porsche 964 was a 911 that wore many hats.”

    That’s an understatement… and not just for the 964. I’ve always admired the 911, particularly the 993, and one day when the kids are grown and/or I have more disposable income I’ll probably own one, but the variations on the 911 theme are mind-boggling. I’ll need a few years to fully immerse myself in all things Porsche before I am comfortable pulling the trigger.

    This should’ve been a C2. Lighter weight and the right wheels doing the pushing. In any case just because something’s rare doesn’t necessarily make it more valuable. This is a beautiful car but well overpriced. “Regular” 964 C4s are in the low-to-mid-$20K range these days (not $50-60K) and a really nice one might bring high $20s. Anything more and you’re into 993 territory ($30s and up) which for most is a much more desirable car. I am a bit shocked that the seller mentions that the owner “chose not to roll back the odometer” like this is some kind of heroic gesture. This is a 110K miler regardless of the paint job, interior work and engine re-seal (note NOT rebuild)… to roll back the odo would be sheer fraud.

    @ Dallas: +1 Well stated.

    I hate to sound like a broken record, but what you’re looking at is someone else’s version of the ultimate Porsche. If it matches your taste, great. If not, it would cost too much to convert it to yours. On the used car market, it’s a full repaint Porsche with over 100k and many non-original parts.

    This cars been for sale a number of times at that price in the last 18 months. The market has spoken loud and clear its not selling at that price.
