1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose

The quest for the ‘Holy Grail’. Everyone has their own holy grail among 911 models and for those that are really particular that search gets parsed even further into specific color combinations on said models. Well, among 911 models themselves the one we see here is the one many will seek. Here we have a 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose with a scant 2,306 miles on it. The colors here are Guards Red over Cashmere Beige – a not uncommon, but still eye catching combination on any 911. As you’d expect there aren’t many of them (39 were built for the US) so we don’t see them come up for sale often and they’re very expensive. Interestingly, these aren’t the most rare and sought after of these cars. The even more rare ‘Package Car’, distinguished from these by having the standard 964 nose rather than the 968-derived Flatnose, takes relative rarity even further with only 17 having been produced in total, all of which were for the US market. Holy Grail indeed!

Is all of this specialness worth $1,000,000? Well, maybe. We’ve featured a couple of these cars over the years, but it’s always hard to know what they actually sell for, regardless of their high asking price. We do have one definitive answer: Jerry Seinfeld’s Polar Silver Metallic Turbo S sold for $1,017,500 at Amelia Island last Spring. That puts this one in reasonable company, though we’ll have to wonder how much of a premium the buyer was willing to pay for something from the Seinfeld collection. That also was the only example in Polar Silver Metallic. Of the ten Guards Red examples, six came with the Cashmere Beige combination we see here. So there aren’t a lot, but there’s more than one. Regardless, opportunities to purchase a Turbo S Flatnose are rare and for those fortunate enough the right one should bring its owner eternal joy.

  1. My favorite Porsche, hands down. I like the lights, but then I owned and loved a 968.

  2. Extraordinary car in every sense of the word. Sloan Porsche has been trying to sell this vehicle for a long time, and it appears they have been unsuccessful thus far. In spite of its rarity & immaculate condition it appears that the market is not accepting a $1,000,000 valuation on a 964 Turbo S. I tend to agree with that sentiment.

  3. I’ve never seen this style Slant Nose before. I like it. $1,000,000 is just insane. To me, this car is worth $200,000. That’s still a TON of money for a car. But I’m not rich nor a collector, so what the hell do I know.

  4. “…should bring it’s owner eternal joy.” Really? How? This is one of the most gorgeous cars on the planet. But what kind of joy do you get out of a car that sits in a climate controlled garage and rarely sees the light of day? I would have to have a ton of money to buy this thing because I would drive the value right out of it.

  5. IIRC a white one sold for around that million mark or more recently,

    The even more rear car is the “Package Car” which is the 1994 Turbo S without the flat nose. I think the numbers produced were in the 20’s.
