1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

When Porsche debuted the 964, the first major redesign of the 911 since 1974, it chose for this significant event a somewhat bold strategy. It not only released a completely redesigned 911, but a completely redesigned 911 model that previously had not existed and was sure to raise a few eyebrows: the 911 Carrera 4. With its standard power steering, ABS, and electronically-extended rear spoiler the release of the Carrera 4 was intended to foreshadow the future of the 911. There would be little looking back. Technological innovations aside, perhaps the best part of this Carrera 4 is the look. Produced only in the final year of 964 production, the wider rear fenders have garnered it the “Turbo Look” moniker and those curves certainly do the job of creating a sexier overall shape on the already smoothed lines of the 964. While future models would offer additional variations, 964 buyers who sought that wider shape were limited to the Carrera 4 Widebody and the more expensive, though wonderful, 911 Turbo. This all brings us to the example here: a Black on Black 1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe, located in Texas, with 89,695 miles on it.

Here are some answers to questions I have received:

This is a Colorado car. The car was delivered from Porsche of Denver in Feb, 1994. The car has always been in Colorado and all services were performed in Colorado. All invoices, the stamped service book, and the clean carfax show Colorado. This 911 has always been in the Denver area.

This car left the state for the first time three months ago when I moved from Colorado to The Woodlands, Texas. It still has a Colorado title.

There are no dents or scratches on the car, with the exception of a few small ones under the rear bumper which are only visible from underneath the car.

The underbody of the car is clean and all the under covers are in place, transmission cover and engine cover.

All original VIN stickers are in place (front hood, front fenders, drivers door, left rear quarter panel, and engine lid. All areas except for passenger door and right rear quarter panel.)

Everything works on the car. It has been serviced properly and does not need anything at this time. The last service and inspection to date was Sept, 2014 for the amount of $1000.

Inspections and test drives are very welcome. However, please arrange to do this before the end of the auction.

I have always been somewhat torn by the 964 Carrera 4 Widebody. They are fantastic looking cars, some of the best of the naturally-aspirated designs, but I’m not terribly interested in the extra weight and dynamic changes related to the car’s all-wheel-drive system. Porsche too, I suspect, realized there would be buyers who felt similarly as they debuted the Carrera 2S for the 993, which featured all of the aesthetic wonderfulness of this Carrera 4, but in a rear-drive package. Still, these trade for quite a bit more than the standard Carrera 2 so they are well loved cars. Bidding here currently sits at $53,100 with reserve unmet, which, given the mileage, seems about right though bidding will clearly have to come up in order to meet this reserve.

  1. This is utterly fantastic, and the ownership seems solid too. Black metallic exterior is a slice of heaven. So happy to see it rear spoiler-less too. Aesthetic and mechanical brilliance.

  2. It manages to look both curvy/aero and athletic at the same time, in all the right ways. What Batman drives when the Batmobile is in the shop? Awesomely sinister form and paint color combo.

  3. Very nice curves, but unfortunately, a very heavy 964
