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.

1994 BMW M3 Euro-spec

For some time, there was a giant gulf in between European-spec cars and U.S. spec cars. Granted, part of that divide still exists today if the large assortment of cars that do not make it to these shores, but at least enthusiasts can rejoice that at last – for the most part – performance versions that are available in Germany are very close to the same that we receive here. One of the last notable cars to exhibit the large divide was the E36 M3; while Europeans enjoyed over 280 horsepower from the individual throttle body S50B30 in 1992, the later released U.S. spec M3 carried an entirely different motor with some 40 horsepower less. Though the S50B30US is certainly a great motor by itself, the knowledge that the “better” version existed across the pond somehow took a bit of legitimacy away from it. Also differentiating the European versions were better floating rotor brakes, better glass headlights, better lower and stiffer suspension, and some neat interior options:

1994 BMW 740i

It’s no secret that you can get a lot of car for your money when it comes to luxury cars from the 1990s. But is it a wise investment or another way to run you quickly into the poor house? As with most cars, if chosen wisely, you can mitigate the effects on your wallet, along with some savvy budgeting. This BMW 740i for sale in Connecticut represents the last year of the E32 7 series and looks like it just arrived from a jaunt to the country club parking lot in its dark green over tan livery. With just enough chrome and classic BMW lines that we know and love, this car is supremely posh.

Tuner Tuesday: 1994 Mercedes-Benz 500E AMG 6.0

Pulling together enough legendary names to nearly create it’s own “Justice League”, the Mercedes-Benz 500E saw the combination of two of the most storied names in German automobiles – Porsche and Daimler-Benz. The 500E was sure a serious car out of the box with 320 horsepower and torque to match; but for some, that wasn’t enough. For those enterprising individuals with deep pockets, their Stuttgart superhero saw the introduction of a third legendary name; AMG. AMG had been placing larger displacement engines in Benz models for years, and the 500E proved no different. It even became an official product since Daimler owned a major stake in AMG; the merger would see a new range of high performance out of the box Mercedes models like the SL60 and E60. With a 50 horsepower boost in horsepower and 75 more lb.ft of torque, the 6.0 brought the 500E to another level of performance, chopping nearly a second off its 0-60 times and giving close to Porsche 911 Turbo levels of straight line performance. But while the E60 and SL60 models are pretty rare, it was more common to do what this owner did – ship the car to AMG for a motor swap after purchase:
