1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose – REVISIT

cw_800

The Black 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose remains for sale and the sellers have reduced the starting bid significantly from the astronomical price of $950K to the still-insanely-high price of $600K. As this remains a reserve auction the actual selling price may remain the same, but perhaps this time it might actually receive a bid. This is a car we will likely have our eye on for a long time as it could give us one of the few chances to get a handle on what buyers are willing to pay for these ultra-rare Turbos. The price likely is still well above where it needs to be, but with time perhaps it will enter more reasonable territory. It does make me wonder though: what would be a reasonable starting bid for this auction?

Naturally it took me very little time to decide whether to feature this car after I came across it. Here we have a 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose. 1 of 39 produced for the US market, and 1 of 93 total Turbo S produced worldwide. The 3.6 Turbo S was the final iteration of a variety of 964 turbos Porsche produced beginning in 1991 with the basic Turbo, which carried over the 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-six that had served the 930 so well for many years. In 1993 a turbocharged version of the 964’s 3.6 liter flat-six finally was readied and as a final send-off Porsche Exclusive took hold of the remaining Turbo chassis available to produce a Turbo S based off of that 3.6 liter engine. The majority of the 93 cars produced (66 in all) featured the 968-derived flatnose and that nose remains the car’s most identifiable feature. Other notable features are a unique whale tail, Speedline wheels, quad exhaust, and rear air inlets to help feed air to the engine. And of course, they had more power – 385 hp – all delivered to the rear wheels. These were the last of the purely rear-drive Turbos Porsche would produce outside of the GT2, which raised the insanity even more. The 964 saw a pretty large number of limited production models and for its combination of performance and refinement the Turbo S remains one of the best.

Stratospheric prices are nothing new on the air-cooled 911 market, especially when we are dealing with rare variants of the 964 or 993. But the asking price here is even pushing those boundaries of reasonableness. Given the starting bid of this reserve auction we might as well consider the price here to be $1M. It’s close enough to make no difference. In fairness, these cars are ridiculously rare. They almost never come up for sale outside of a couple specialists like Sloan and RPM. So for one to pop up on eBay is interesting in and of itself. Though we should note as rare as it might be, this isn’t the rarest of the 964 variants as it is trumped by its sister model, the Turbo S ‘Package,’ which had all of the wonderful performance options of the Turbo S Flatnose, but featured the standard 964 front. The condition of the car here looks great, as we’d expect, and I’ll definitely have an eye on it to see where this goes. I don’t think it’ll sell at this price anytime soon, but the 964 is gaining a lot of momentum on the market and the Turbo S is about as good as they get.

  1. I may be in the minority but the flat-nose has the face only a mother could love…
    I’ll take a plain old 964 3.6 Turbo/Turbo S without the rhinoplasty

  2. Rare as hen’s teeth. My favorite Porsche… And the first thing I’d buy if PowerBall worked out. I love the front end, but then I did have a 968.
