1994 Porsche 911 Speedster

In all the years that the Porsche 911 has been with us, we’ve only seen the Speedster appear three times, in 1989, 1994 and 2012. There were also two 993 based Speedsters produced by the factory, one for Ferdinand Porsche and the other for noted Porsche collector Jerry Seinfeld. Of all the 911 Speedsters, the 964 based one is my favorite. The smooth, integrated bumpers mesh well with the trademark tonneau cover. Most of the Speedsters you come across these days have low mileage and have been stashed away by collectors, and this one for sale in Florida is no different.

1994 Porsche 911 Speedster on eBay

This unique and extremely rare Porsche Speedster is in concours condition and a must have to complete your ultimate Porsche collection. With only 23,602 miles, this Porsche is one of only 427 shipped to the USA! Immediately recognizable and a real head turner is the iconic bathtub styling. This is the final edition of the drop top, air cooled 964 Speedster and a must have. The 1994 edition is significantly more performance oriented with a larger 3.6 liter engine (247 hp), larger wheels and tires, better brakes (ABS) and a faster top speed (162 mph).

This car is equipped with a 5-speed G50 gearbox, color coded 17” wheels, AM/FM/CD player, black soft top (in near perfect condition), automatic rear spoiler, driver airbag, power windows and locks, cockpit tonneau cover and complete books/keys. The Dunlop tires are brand new. It has a clean Carfax with no accident history. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a rare collectors Speedster in immaculate condition.

It seems that $80,000 to $100,000 is the sweet spot for mint, low mileage 964 Speedsters right now. The overdose of white might not be to everyone’s liking, but I’m a fan. While it doesn’t have the more aggressively bolstered seats with color keyed seatbacks, the cloth seats are a nice touch that you don’t see too often.…

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.

More pictures are available on our website.

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera Cup

The 964 chassis Porsche 911 Carrera RS America was Stuttgart’s answer for those who wanted a lightweight special stateside. Based on the Carerra 2 and using the same engine, gearbox and brakes, this car featured a partially stripped down interior featuring flat door panels and removal of the rear seats. Outside, a whale tail spoiler and sport suspension rounded out the package. Not to be confused with the hardcore Carerra RS available elsewhere, the RS still had a warm reception by enthusiasts seeking something a bit more driver oriented.

However, one could “technically” get something similar to a Carerra RS in the US if they wanted. The Carrera Cup you see here was the product of a stillborn race series that never gained sponsorship, the Carrera Cup. Porsche had produced 45 cars for the series. Instead of crushing them or offering them in another country, they were put on sale in US dealers but not advertised. These cars had a seam welded chassis, aluminum hood, thinner glass and the M64/03 engine. Approximate weight shed over a standard Carrera 2 was 200 pounds. Rarely seen these days, this particular Carrera Cup for sale in New York has never modified for racing, has never seen track time and appears as is when it arrived in the port.

1994 Porsche 911 Speedster

Last year, as Porsche began to wrap up production of the 997 series 911, the first Speedster model emerged from the factory in 17 years. This was only the third generation of 911 to have a Speedster model, and this 1994 model was the 2011 model’s direct predecessor. With 930 produced, this was the second rarest 964, save for the Jubilee Edition, which was not sold in the US. It was a bit of a mash up between a 911 cabriolet and 964 RS, but had a less aggressive suspension setup than the RS and less creature comforts than the cabriolet, as the Speedster name was meant to conjure up an image of a drivers car. The following example for sale in New Jersey has under 30,000 miles, but low mileage is not exactly uncommon with these cars, as many collectors snapped them up when new.

1992 Porsche America Roadster

Phillip dropped us a note to let us know about his very unique Porsche 964 America Roadster. Check it out:

The 964 Wikipedia page states:

A turbo bodied cabriolet version was released in 1992. This had the standard electric spoiler and turbo guards. Mechanically it was the same as the standard model apart from 17″ cup wheels and the brakes and suspension which were ‘Turbo’ specification. Only 250 of this variant were produced in total during the 1992 and 1993 model years.

quote from seller:

This is a 1992 America Roadster in Raspberry red on Raspberry red (himbeerrot metallic) 1 of only 4 ever built according to Porsche North America.

History of the car.

First owner was a wealthy Western Canadian Businessman, now retired, who had taken triple A ball into Calgary and at one time had a lease on the saddledome. (documentation held by way of original in service warranty registration). He traded the car in on new Porsche turbo and the dealership wholesaled it out – purchased by a Canadian broker who deals in air cooled, limited editions Porsche – good reputation.

Second owner who I bought the car from; Canadian retired Banker from Japan. He is a Classic Porsche enthusiast and very knowledgeable about Porsche. According to him the Porsche has always been garaged/kept warm, never seen snow, virtually not seen rain.

Original owner confirmed it was factory ordered, custom matching interior including back seats (found in many euro cars, but very unusual in American cars, which usually have cheaper rear seat delete.
Original owner reports post ordering and upon its arrival he agreed to allow Porsche North America to use the car on the auto show circuit.

1992 Porsche 911 America Roadster

I’m a sucker for cars that have an interesting color combination or rare collection of options. Porsche had some unique colors back in the late 1980s and 1990s, partly due to the fact that Harm Laagay returned to Porsche from BMW in 1989, after completing the Z1 project. This 911 America Roadster was a limited run model with 250 produced. It has the cabriolet body with the 911 Turbo’s flared rear fenders. The car also adopted the brakes and suspension from the 911 Turbo but retains the Carerra’s 247 horsepower engine.

Frank (an inductee into Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame) was formerly mechanic at MCL motors (Vancover Porsche Dealer) but for years has operated his own very small shop focusing on the aircooled Porsche (has no website) operates among aircooled 911’s crowd.

1991 Porsche 911 Turbo

Another week, another 964 series 911 Turbo, it seems. 1990 saw the introduction of the 964, and one year later, the Turbo bowed with a 3.3 liter engine producing 315 horsepower. The 964 Turbo models are, much like the rest of the 964 range, steadily increasing in value and gaining the attention of collectors. Here’s a fairly clean, early example with late model Porsche wheels.

The seller states:

Here is a sweet 1991 Turbo 911. This rare car is in great shape inside, outside, and mechanically. It has Turquoise Metallic (59) paint and a grey interior. Body and paint are in great shape with the usual paint chips around the wheel flares. The engine number is 61M00854 and transmission number is 2M00855. I have the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity for this car. It is fast and drives like it should, like a race car.

The thing that stands out in the ad is the fact that the car comes with Porsche’s Certificate of Authenticity, important to any collector. The reserve isn’t met at $25,000, but it would be safe to say this car would make it well into the $30k range if an interested buyer exists. Besides the 911 3.2 from the 1980s, I have to say the 964 is perhaps my favorite 911 of them all.

Here’s a clip from the PBS show Motor Week highlighting the 1992 Turbo, essentially the same vehicle:

1991 Porsche 911 Turbo, rare color

The spectrum of colors that has appeared on the Porsche 911 over the years is vast, to say the least. Here we have an oddball color, Rubystone Red, on a rather butch looking 964 Turbo. While not completely original, the upgrades have been tasteful, as the description illustrates.

The seller states:

You are viewing an extremely rare Porsche 911 turbo. This 965 is finished in Rubystone Red (looks purple in most light or even magenta) and is one of as few as perhaps 2 made in this color of the 674 brought to the usa for 1991! This car has been owned by the same person for 12+ years. It had just 19,497 miles when the previous owner bought it in March of 1998. The Rubystone Red paint appears to be original and all of the panels are original to the car and still have their VIN# stickers, etc. in their proper locations. The previous owner had a 1994 turbo 3.6 s engine installed in the car several years ago and then had the local independent Porsche specialst shop go through the motor and make some modifications. If you are still reading this then you probably know how rare the 3.6 Turbo S cars are and what an impressive engine this is! Porsche built just 155 option code x88 turbo 3.6 s engines! It was conservatively rated at 385 hp according to flachbau.com. Most of these engines were installed in the flat nose cars, but a customer could special order one for installation in a regular ’94 turbo as well. Here are some other details about this rare Porsche:

• M64/50 S TURBO 3.6 S ENGINE OPTION CODE X88
• REBUILT FOR $21K 12K MILES AGO BY AN EXPERT PORSCHE SHOP
• TWIN PLUG CYLINDER HEADS
• PORTED CYLINDER HEADS TO 38mm (PLENUM MATCHED AT 38mm)
• GT2 EVO CAMS
• ALIGN BORED CASES
• MICRO POLISHED CRANK
• ALL NEW BEARINGS, ROD BOLTS, HEAD STUDS, ETC.

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo in the 964 Hunt

I struggled with the 964 scavenger hunt to be honest, but this in turn taught me an invaluable lesson on the challenge of finding that just right Porsche.  Perhaps owing to its longevity and continuous shape, the 911 is pretty much the ubiquitous sports car, and even for the relatively-educated model years and changes can blend together.  I love Porsches, but being more of a BMW/VW guy, I’ll bashfully admit that sometimes I’ve lumped them together as “another 911.”

Late-model, black on black RWD 964s are apparently not just “another 911.”  So this became an exciting scavenger hunt for me.  The closest example I could find was a Turbo, which probably puts it in the “too much money” category, but it’s still worth a good look because this is a beautiful car.  Low-mileage and pure early-90s Zuffenhausen sex, this is one of the best of the breed.

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo for sale on SF Craigslist

If Evan’s Lightweight 3.3 Turbo can go for ~$64k American, $48,800 for this immaculate 911 Turbo seems fairly reasonable.  The interior is impeccable and the exterior looks flawless, a black-on-black beauty.  It’s no bargain, but it’s not just another 911 either.

1990 Porsche 911 Carerra 4

Here’s an early, but relatively low mileage example of the 964 chassis 911, which is becoming more of a collectors item as time passes. This example has also undergone a recent comprehensive service, which, no doubt, is of great value to potential buyers.

1990 Porsche 911 Carerra 4

The seller states:

This 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. It is a 2-Owner Carfax Certified vehicle with zero accident history. It has always been a local car and was recently brought to us and needed some attention. Our expert 30 year Porsche Mechanics have compltety gone through this car and brought everything it needed up to date. We have adjusted the vavles, replaced the plugs and caps, rotors, brakes, air filters, replaced all belts, replaced the chain cover seals, replaced the battery and cleaned and degreased the motor. The electronics have been sorted and are in excellent working order and the front fender was repainted due to a large dent it obtained while in storage. In addition we have the former owners file on this car that contains mostly dealer service records over the years.

$20k is about spot on for values of 964 Carreras. I personally would prefer the two wheel drive version but for those living in colder climates, it could be a bonus.
