1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose with 162,905 miles

Typically when we make a fuss about a car’s mileage it’s because it’s some insanely low-mileage garage queen or barn find. While we may all wonder how the owner could have such a great car and never drive it, the collectors go in a frenzy for the chance at such a rare time capsule. We see a lot of those cars; they’re neat to see.

This one probably is actually more rare. Start with one of the rarest models Porsche has produced: the 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose. Only 76 in total were produced worldwide with only 39 making it to the US. Then drive it. Then keep driving it. And drive it some more. Over the first ten years of its life this Turbo S was driven seemingly how any other car would have been driven putting on an average of around 14K miles per year. That’s your typical daily driver. Can you imagine the immense joy that would come from having such a car as your daily driver?

1993 Porsche 911 RS America

I’ll say straightaway that I have a couple questions about this 1993 Porsche 911 RS America. I also think it’s priced a good bit too high, though that’s a problem with a lot of RS Americas we see come up for sale. We’ll get to those questions though. First, the good stuff.

As you can probably see this one has received a full wrap in Martini Racing livery. If you were to imagine what a 964 wearing such livery at the track would look like this is probably it. And it looks great! The Martini striping really works well over the curves of the rear quarters. I’d want to remove the stickers for the dealer, but otherwise I think this conveys its intent well. This RS America also is one of the low-option examples. There were only four options available (A/C, sunroof, radio, and limited-slip differential) so none of them have lots of options, but still for a car that’s supposed to be stripped down a lot of them seem to have those things added back. This one clearly does not have the radio or sunroof. We don’t get a clear look at the option sticker and the ad leaves us blind, but I think the only option chosen was the LSD. For those in search of the sportiest RSA out there this one checks those boxes.

1993 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

I can never really begrudge sellers who are overly effusive about the cars they are selling, but sometimes it does frustrate me. In most cases, this applies to cars I really like, but which I feel are being presented in the wrong way. (I have a similar frustration whenever I see an ad from Toyota talking about how sporty the new Camry feels.) But I do get it, they’re trying to sell something and appeal to certain emotions.

This 964, a Midnight Blue 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, falls into this category. I really like this 911; it looks great, the color combination is one that I really enjoy, and with a fairly recent engine rebuild we would hope it’s ready to roll and provide many more miles of excellent motoring. But it also has almost 150K miles on it so why should I care about collector appeal?

Tahoe Blue Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo

Update 12/31/2017 – the asking price on this 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo has dropped $20,000 to $109,995.

I always find it difficult to find 964 Turbos in interesting colors. Which is weird because of all the 911 models I feel like the 964 is the range I think had the largest number of unusual colors available. Porsche always has offered quite a variety, but it seemed with the 964 they let themselves go even further. But it seems buyers stuck with the more traditional options.

Here we have an obvious exception: a Tahoe Blue Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Brooklyn, with a color-to-sample Linen leather interior offset by a healthy dose of rootwood accents and 78,952 miles on it. I’m not very familiar with Tahoe Blue Metallic and this one is said to be 1 of only 3 Turbos equipped in this color combination. The extensive options list likely takes it to the top of that already exclusive company.

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

Let’s stick with yesterday’s blue theme and take a look at another of Porsche’s really nice blues. Here we have a Cobalt Blue Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in Houston, with a light grey and blue interior and 74,452 miles on it. As should be immediately apparent, Cobalt Blue is a very pretty and striking shade of color. It doesn’t jump out at you as much as Minerva Blue does since it’s a darker shade, but though it may be more reserved it none the less shines brightly and exudes plenty of character. On the much more modern lines of the 964 – modern relative to an early 930 – it looks great bringing both elegance and excitement to this 911’s curves. It helps that this one looks in very nice shape!

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flachbau

Not too long ago we featured a 911 Turbo S Package car, one of the rarest and most sought after of all air-cooled 911s. Now, we’ll take a look at the other version of this ultimate 964: a Black 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flachbau (Flatnose), located in Massachusetts, with Light Grey leather interior and 16,400 miles on it.

As the last standard issue rear-drive turbo – I’m intentionally excluding the later GT2 from this – the Turbo S serves as the ultimate expression of the breed melding prodigious power with all of the dynamic peculiarities of the 911’s rear-engine platform. It’s luxurious and refined, while also looking the part of the supercar that it is. Not everyone likes the 968-derived Flatnose, and even I’ll admit it makes for a somewhat peculiar appearance, but there’s no question it will grab your attention. Step behind the wheel and your attention may never leave it.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe – RoW Sunroof Delete

Let’s continue with yesterday’s theme and look at another 911 that originated outside of our shores. Here we have a Japanese market Forest Green Metallic 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in California, with Black interior and a very low 32,200 kilometers on it. Of additional import this Carrera 2 does not have a sunroof. The seller has listed it as a sunroof delete – and I’ve followed suit – but properly speaking I think we’d say this 911 didn’t have the sunroof selected as an option, rather than deleted. It gets us to the same point though.

We’ve seen a few of these Japanese market 964s come up lately – I’ve even featured one – and they certainly make for a nice departure from the US versions. This particular example looks fantastic!

The Porsche 964 market has caught the attention of collectors and enthusiasts. It was really the beginning of the modern version of the 911. Some of the most significant changes in the 911’s history began with this model. Torsion bar suspension was replaced with an adjustable coil-over setup. Power steering was added. The A/C system was updated and much more effective. The new twin-plug 3.6L engine made these cars wonderful around town with great low-end power. The changes were extensive and really made these examples some of the best all-around driving 911s. In particular, the Rest of World (ROW) models are considered the best. They are lighter, the suspension is better, and they look better. Now with the U.S. 25-year import law in effect, these cars are finally legal for the American market.

This C2 was built on January 3rd, 1990 and imported by Mitsuwa Motors of Japan. This company was the legal importer for all Porsche cars entering the Japanese market for decades. This Porsche was ordered with the following factory options:

Special order paint (Forest Green Metallic)
Rear Wiper
Air Conditioner
Bridgestone Tires
Limited Slip Differential (dealer installed)

This 964 lived with one owner from new in Osaka, Japan. Recently, it was imported to the United States. Prior to being shipped, the Porsche dealer in Japan performed a major service.

Furthermore, the air-conditioning system has also been serviced and it blows cold. The car was fully detailed and a ceramic paint protection coat was applied. This is a process that costs over $3,000 and seals the paint from contaminants.

The exterior looks fantastic and shows minimal signs of use. It is indicative of a low-mile example. The body panels have been checked with a paint meter and verified original except for some paint blending on the right rear fender and right door. The paint work was done due to some dents and scratches. Visually, the match is spot on and the only way you can tell is with a meter. The glass is all original including the windshield and looks near new. The wheels are wrapped in older Dunlop tires that should be replaced soon. The front brakes are new and the rears have about half-life remaining. All the exterior lights function properly. The headlights have HID bulbs. The rear power wing operates as it should and the accordion plastic part is in good condition (see pic). The exterior of these ROW cars looks fantastic. The bumpers are cleaner and the side European marker lights add a nice touch. Also, the ride height is lower and gives it a more aggressive stance and better handling.

The engine compartment is clean and tidy. The engine has recently been serviced by Porsche. All the proper factory decals are in place. The engine sound pad is in excellent condition as well. The underside is also clean and still has all of its plastic undercarriage panels in place.

The interior is equally as nice and also reflective of the low miles. The leather seats are in excellent condition with just some light bolster wear with no tears. The carpet, door panels, and headliner all look fresh. The dash is perfect with no cracks or warping. An aftermarket Japanese stereo has been installed. It powers up and plays, but the FM tuning does not work in the U.S. market. The A/C blows cold. All the gauges operate properly. The clock keeps time as well. All the interior lights and buttons function as they should.

It’s hard to put a finger on why these cars drive so nice, but they feel much tighter and more responsive than their North American counterparts. This example starts easily with the first twist of the key and holds an even idle. The power is immediate and has excellent low-end torque. The lightened flywheel really helps free up the motor’s rpms. The power assisted steering is a welcome addition, yet it still provides plenty of road feel and feedback. Turn in is precise and the car tracks straight. The LSD helps with applying the torque on the exit from turns. Some fresh tires would improve handling even more. The brakes have great initial bite with no fading or pulling. The gearbox shifts smoothly with no grinding or slipping.

This example is truly a rare site to see stateside and would certainly gather a crowd at your local cars and coffee. Meanwhile, it is easy enough to use daily and a blast in the canyons. This would make a great driver for distance touring events or even showing at your local concours events.

This 964 comes with its original owner’s manuals, Certificate of Authenticity, space saver spare, jack, air compressor, extra key, and tool kit.

I also should note that this same seller has another non-sunroof Carrera 2 available. In many ways it is very similar. I chose to feature this one because the color is a little more unique so I like it better. But, if you prefer black, there’s one available.

The asking price for both of these 911s is very high and I’ll be pretty curious to see whether either can sell. Even given the condition and very low mileage it’s still tough to consider moving above six figures for a Carrera 2, regardless of its various unique qualities. For comparison, the Slate Grey Japanese Carrera 2 I featured had an asking price of $78K. It sold, presumably for a price close to asking since I don’t think it was available all that long. It also had no sunroof, but at 74K kilometers it’s mileage definitely was higher. So we’ll have to factor that in, but that still leaves me wondering if lower mileage is worth this much of a premium. Nonetheless, this is a really nice looking RoW Carrera 2 and certainly one that will start some conversation with anyone who sees it.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet

Previously I featured a 930 with a Marine Blue exterior over a Linen interior. Here we’re going to sort of turn that inside out. We now have the Linen on the outside and we have the dark blue serving as accents to the interior and the convertible top. It’s not a full reversal of colors since the primary interior color is light grey. It’d have been fantastic if the interior were all dark blue though. I can imagine that would have provided for a very captivating contrast.

This is a 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet, located in California, with 83,478 miles on it. The color combination isn’t bad, but it is a bit monotone. As we can see, when used as an exterior color Linen isn’t quite silver, nor is it quite white or gold. It’s a little bit of all of them. In the sun it shines really well, but it still looks good in the shade. All together it doesn’t look too bad, though it is very much on the refined/elegant side of the spectrum. There isn’t much that’s aggressive about this 911, but that’s ok.

Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer the 1990 Porsche 964 Cabriolet in Linen Grey with light Grey interior and Dark Blue soft top. 1 owner from new with 83,478 miles, clean Carfax. Mechanically excellent and a delight to drive. Just checked and serviced by us and less than 4k miles ago it had over $10k spent on a full engine reseal that involved disassembly, replacement of all common wear items and reassembly, plus fuel pump, soft top cables, etc. Very good body with good paint. All stickers in place including option code sticker under the hood. Nice interior with un-cracked dash, good door panels and great original light color seats that do show wear more than darker ones – nothing bad just patina. Windows, seats and top work well. Comes with its books – service book has option code sticker and is stamped to 39k miles., Copious records from new to present day, its soft top boot, jack and tools. This is a much better car than is typical for a slightly higher mile 964. Great value and a very user friendly classic Porsche to own or collect. Inspections encouraged. All sales AS-IS. Sales tax and license fees due if delivered in California.

This 911 gets me back into my value shopping groove. It certainly isn’t pristine as we can tell from the various bits of interior wear. There don’t appear to be any major issues, but the wear does show on the driver’s seat pretty well. The seller has taken the optimistic route and called it patina. Maybe, maybe not. But as I said, there don’t appear to be any tears and other significant issues so we can probably live with it at this sort of price. The exterior looks in nice shape. These types of colors tend to hide dirt pretty well, but even so the paint looks good. We aren’t told whether it’s original paint so that will be worth asking, but this 911 isn’t destined for the collector bin so a respray likely won’t be too troubling, unless there’s some significant accident lurking in its history.

The best news about it is that it’s said to come with plenty of records from new. I doubt those records are exhaustive since sellers typically indicate that, but hopefully those records along with its recent servicing will provide enough insight and peace of mind to be comfortable with its present mechanical condition. As for price, bidding is only at $28,500, but even the $43,500 BIN price seems fair for a 964 Cab with this mileage. If it were a coupe it’d probably have sold pretty quickly at this price so if you prefer to cruise top down you get a discount!

Tuner Tuesday: 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Turbo RAUH-Welt Begriff

Last week: Gemballa. This week: RAUH-Welt Begriff. We might as well look at something from the two most divisive Porsche tuners in back-to-back weeks right? I said in last week’s post that I don’t mind over the top designs from tuners and along those lines I typically enjoy the work we see from RWB. While many don’t like them, Akira Nakai’s builds do follow a line that is recognizable within Porsche’s own racing designs. Of course, those are purpose built race cars and RWB builds street cars. None the less, the look itself is not necessarily off base.

And here lies the primary criticism of many RWB designs: they are all show and no go. For many, in fact most, of their builds that is true; RWB focuses much more on the appearance of the car than on making it faster. This build addresses that criticism, and it addresses it pretty significantly.

This 911 began its life as an early 964 Carrera 4. We’re even provided pictures of it and it looked pretty good! Still, the transformation is pretty stunning. But enough about the looks because you’ll either love ’em or hate ’em. As I said, RWB typically is criticized for being all show. Not so here as this Carrera 4 now packs 400 hp at the wheels thanks to a single turbocharger and a fully rebuilt engine. For comparison that’s more power than Porsche’s own Turbo S produced. It’s probably at the wheels than a 993TT. Will it feel as seemless and functional as those factory versions? I would be pretty surprised if it did, but at least the power is there and with a set of 993 Turbo brakes and calipers on board reigning in that extra power should be doable as well.

I don’t know that this would make a good track car. I’m not sure if it even is intended to be one despite its looks, but within the street tuner world I’d imagine this RWB attracts a lot of attention and unlike other builds it does have the power to go with those aggressive lines. Like every other RWB car I’ve seen the asking price is high, though this one doesn’t seem any higher than the others. So if you’re an RWB fan and you want both performance and looks, then this one is probably the way to go.

Paint-to-Sample Lemon Yellow 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

I’ve been looking at a few yellow 911s over the past week and if we add in Carter’s Speed Yellow 968 then these bright yellow Porsches have been a little bit of a theme. I’m going to raise the bar some now and while I know it’s tough to top the rarity of that 968 I think this one certainly tries its best. We’ll definitely be raising the bar on price.

Here we see a beautiful paint-to-sample Lemon Yellow 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS. I’ve featured a few examples of the Carrera RS lately as now that it has passed the 25 year waiting period I’ve seen them come up for sale more frequently. It is one of my all-time favorite 911s, perhaps even being my all-time favorite though that seems to change with the season. Regardless, they are spectacular machines and this looks to be a spectacular example.

CLICK FOR DETAILS: Lemon Yellow 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS at DJM Investments

Year: 1992
Model: 911 Carrera RS
Engine: 3.6 liter flat-6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 28,867 km (17,937 mi)
Price: Inquire

In 1992, Porsche produced a super-lightweight, rear-wheel-drive only version of the 964 dubbed Carrera RS for the European market only. It was based on Porsche’s 911 “Carrera Cup” race car and harked back to the 2.7 and 3.0 RS and RSR models. It featured a revised version of the standard engine, titled M64/03 internally, with an increased power output of 260 bhp (194 kW; 264 PS) and lightweight flywheel coupled to the G50/10 transmission with closer ratios, asymmetrical Limited Slip Differential and steel syncromesh. A track-oriented suspension system with 40 mm (1.6 in) lower ride height, stiffer springs, shocks and adjustable stabilizer bars without power steering (RHD UK cars did have power steering).
A stripped-out interior devoid of power windows or seats, rear seats, air conditioning, cruise control, sound deadening or a stereo system (optionally fitted) and new racing-bucket front seats were part of the package. The trunk hood was made of aluminum, the chassis was seam welded and sound deadening was deleted. Wheels were made of magnesium and the glass was thinner in the doors and rear window. The Carrera RS is approximately 345 pounds (155 kg) lighter than the US version Carrera 2 model.

These cars were never delivered to the USA due to the idea that these cars were too track oriented despite being street cars for ROW (Rest of World). Today they are highly sought after due to the incredible road handling characteristics and the thrill of driving a car with your right foot and no added and heavy driving additives!! Lighter and much more fun to drive than the 993 RS and much more desirable and safe to drive than the initial RS built in 1973. The 964 RS Carrera will be the next generation of 1973 RS’s and, of course, being much faster, safer and fun to drive than the original RS from 1973 and future values will soon be near or at the level of a 1973 RS.

This is a very rare and highly sought after PAINT TO SAMPLE and FULLY ORIGINAL RS Carrera with only 28,867 KM’s from new. No modifications whatsoever and in AS NEW CONCOURS CONDITION. With ownership history from delivery date and in Paint to Sample this particular automobile is for the true collector and 911 enthusiast. Included in the sale are all tools, books, records, jack, gloves, and original spare. Finding a car in this condition is extremely hard to source and the added value bonus of a paint to sample car will always be rare and highly collectible for many years to come.

Price on Request

There isn’t a whole lot to say about this RS itself. Everything looks exactly as we’d hope from such a low-mileage collectible. It comes with all of its documentation as well. My only quibble – and this is more with how the car is spec’d than with its current presentation – is that the three-tone seats are the standard grey. I’d have loved if they matched the exterior. Perhaps since it was paint-to-sample this was not possible, though it’s rare that something isn’t possible from Porsche. If you have the money, they can usually find a way.

So how much might it cost? Recent auctions of low-mileage examples of the 964 Carrera RS have been selling in the mid- to upper-$200Ks. But those have been for fairly standard colors. There is a Rubystone RS of similar mileage priced at a whopping $408K, but it’s been around for a little while and to me may represent an outlier. I would expect this paint-to-sample RS to eclipse $300K without much problem. After that it really becomes a matter of how much a buyer wants it. There certainly aren’t many more like it (well, perhaps any more like it) and even those that are similar may not be in such fine condition.
