1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe – RoW Sunroof Delete

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.

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.

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

The 911SC isn’t the only model where you can find decent value among air-cooled 911s. The 964 too has typically shown itself as another option. Admittedly it does get more difficult and, of course, you are going to pay a little more for comparable mileage and condition, but you’re getting more car so we can’t be too surprised or upset by that. The top end of the 964 market, especially for the many limited-production models Porsche released at the time, stretches well above that of any 911SC. But the regular cars, there we can find something.

The one we see here, an Amethyst Pearl Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe located in North Carolina, fits into a similar category as yesterday’s 911SC in that it should be a reasonable value in theory, yet currently is priced too high. It’s up for auction with no reserve, which provides some hope of appropriate cost, but the starting bid has been set too high to induce any bidding. With time that should come down – or with the start set at zero – and then we’ll have a chance.

This 964 has lived in the east coast its entire life and owned by a retired lawyer for most of the past decade. The car is very clean and well detailed.

The exterior and interior present beautifully. The Amethyst Pearl Metallic paint reflects very nicely. New center reflector and brake lights. The cashmere beige interior has remained all original except the stereo (original is also included).

If you’ll pardon me just a moment I’m going to return to the 964 briefly. Partly because I like this particular 911 as it looks in very nice condition and is a unique color combination. But also in part because it makes for such a good comparison with the Japanese market Carrera 2 from last week. That car sold and had a higher asking price than this one so we may then be able to get some understanding of the premium attached to those RoW cars as they make their way to the US. For buyers with an interest in those cars hopefully this serves as a useful data point. Or maybe just buy this one!

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

If you’ve been around here a while then you will know that my love for the 964 has gradually grown as time has passed and I have encountered more and more of them. The model still doesn’t eclipse the 911SC as my true favorite. However, where once I saw the 964 as little more than a bridge between the classic 911 design of the 3.2 Carrera and the sophisticated modern beauty of the 993, I now see it as a design that provides the best of both worlds: a dose of modernity to show the evolution of the 911, while remaining firmly rooted in the classic 911’s iconic lines.

I also am a huge fan of the 964 in Slate Grey. Slate Grey isn’t a color I like on every 911 model. In fact, on most 911 models I don’t really love it. So I have no real explanation for why I find the 964 so appealing in Slate Grey, but I think it’s wonderful and I think the pictures here show it well. As you can imagine I really like this one: a Slate Grey Metallic 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in Ohio, with 74K kilometers on it.

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

I’ve mentioned a few times the 964 Carrera 4 that lives up the street from me. It’s the only 964 I see with any frequency and it is always a joy. I know it is approaching by its sound and it always looks great in a way that modern Porsches do not. But, ultimately, it’s not what I would consider ideal were I in the market for a 964. First, it’s a Carrera 4 and I’d prefer a Carrera 2. That’s partly just a general preference between the two models, but also related to some of the teething issues we find with Porsche’s first Carrera 4. If I really wanted an air-cooled Carrera 4 I think I’d look at the 993. Second, it’s white and while I do think it’s very nice looking that’s not really the color I’d like.

Well, the one we see here solves both of those problems. Here we have a Guards Red 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in Montana, with Beige interior and 87,800 miles on it.

We don’t really do revisits much anymore, but I wanted to make an exception here because it’s such a great car, so rare and beautiful, and the price has changed dramatically from when I originally featured it last November. The original listing for this Oslo Blue 1963 Porsche 356B Carrera 2 Coupe had it priced at $839K. I said at the time that the price was higher than just about any other Carrera 2 auction I’d seen and it remained on eBay for a while going nowhere. It also had been listed with no description and that wasn’t helping. Here it is priced somewhat more reasonably at $565K, and we’re provided with some of the car’s history to help support its (still) very high price. At the very least we’re off to a much better start.

This nicely optioned T6 Carrera 2 was originally delivered to Hanover, Germany, but delivered to the United States in 1966 to its second owner and active PCA member, Arthur Foyt. In 1971 German, Eugene Deutsch, bought the Carrera 2 and retained it for most of it’s life.

The car underwent a lengthy restoration beginning in 1998. It was stripped to bare metal and repainted to its original Oslo Blue, which remains in great shape today, and the interior has been redone by noted 356 experts. This spectacular 356 is powered by a correct 587/1 four-cam engine that was built by the best; the late Billy Doyle of Rennwagen Motor Company and runs fantastic. His work lives on!

Though restored over 10 years ago, this Carrera 2 remains in superb overall condition and performs as well as any 356 you will drive.

Tuner Tuesday: 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe RAUH-Welt Begriff

Tuner Tuesday: 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe RAUH-Welt Begriff

Tuners all have their own unique style and personality, those aspects that let you know immediately what designer is responsible and what to expect from the build itself. Of course, even within a particular tuner’s portfolio there can be tremendous variation, but there always are identifying details. Though they can be subtle most 911 fans have little trouble recognizing a RUF 911. Such is the level at which RUF has risen over its many years.

Among Porsches RAUH-Welt Begriff perhaps is the most easily identifiable tuner and also perhaps the most divisive. The man responsible is Akira Nakai who designs each body panel for the individual car to produce some of the most head-turning 911s you will come across. They are not for everyone, especially given that – unlike a tuning house like RUF – the work is largely aesthetic with very little additional performance. As pieces of automotive art they are on another level. The one we see here has been dubbed RWB Hollywood and was based off of a 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe. It would be very hard to miss if you saw it in a crowd.

I really like this 911. That kind of goes without saying since I don’t typically feature cars I don’t like, but I mention it simply because I like it more than I’d normally expect. It has an elegant look about it that is working well with the 964’s shape. The color is great, possessing the stormy blue-grey appearance of a rough sea just as the name, Marine Blue, might suggest. Even the Linen interior makes for a nice contrast between exterior and interior and further enhances the storminess of the exterior. All in all, it’s a really nice looking car!

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa

I think by this point it should be pretty clear that I’m a big fan of the 911 Targa. I really like the versatility between open-air and closed cockpit and generally find the aesthetics to be more appealing than with a comparable Coupe or Cabriolet. On the classic 911 design the Targa roll-hoop provides a nice contrast and break in the design that I find very appealing. That’s particularly true on long-hood models. With its reintroduction for the 991 the Targa is easily my favorite. The 964 always has been a little different. The sweeping changes in design from the 3.2 Carrera don’t seem to look as good to me even though the 964 retains so much of the classic 911 look. It just doesn’t look as fluid.

Yesterday I chanced upon a 964 Targa on the street. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen one in person. My sense of it changed, though only some. It looked better in person than I remembered. I still prefer the earlier Targas and prefer the look of the 964 Coupe over the Targa, but the gap has narrowed. But I was thinking about that Targa after coming across this Targa: a Grand Prix White 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa, located in Arizona, with 60,342 miles on it. Maybe I’ll come around on the design even more!

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

I’ve posted a few 964s lately and I’m not too upset about that because I’ve come to like the 964 quite a bit. A decent number of those posts have come from the higher end of the price scale – in some cases the very high end of that scale – but this one will not. That doesn’t mean I find it that much less desirable. In fact, it’s a really pretty 964 in a great color combination that has a few minor performance modifications. For those less concerned with originality, it might be just the 911 to pursue. Here we have a Baltic Blue Metallic 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in Dallas, with Tan leather interior and a robust 152,600 miles on it. The mileage is indeed pretty high, but it appears to come with a substantial stack of records and a decent bit of recent work.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

One of the consistent refrains we hear regarding the 964 Carrera 4 is that you’re typically better off with a Carrera 2. Like with many new models, Porsche’s first attempt at using all-wheel drive on a “regular” car had some teething problems that later iterations solved. So with the 964 you’re buying into “new technology” so to speak. At least in terms of performance or reliability, things like that.

For those who are more historically minded, or who would just prefer all-wheel drive on their 964, the Carrera 4 makes plenty of sense. I understand all of that and as someone for whom an all-wheel drive 911 wouldn’t really be at the top of my want list I’m sympathetic. So I’m always on the lookout for a nice Carrera 2 from that same period and here we have what appears to be one such example: a Guards Red 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in Maryland, with just 29,950 miles on it.

I’ve shown a lot of high-priced cars lately (this can be hard to avoid with 911s) so let’s get back to basics with this Marine Blue Metallic 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe with 84,463 miles on it. The Linen Grey interior provides stark contrast with the exterior and the overall combination reminds me a lot of color palettes more familiar on the 3.2 Carrera. Of course, with the ’90 MY we aren’t far from those Carreras at all so the relationship makes sense. Regardless of model it’s a very attractive combination that I’m sure will turn quite a few heads and the condition of this one looks very good.

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa

I’ve been seeing dealers here and there with higher priced 964s of late, but try as they might to push the market upward for these cars it doesn’t really seem like it’s happening. At least not at the pace the higher prices would suggest. In the eyes of many (and I include myself in this crowd) the 964 has come around. Somewhat unloved during its production the 964 occupies an awkward space between the much-loved classic 911 that served Porsche for so long and the wonderfully beautiful 993 the represents the apex of air-cooled 911 design. For a while that awkward spot shaded my view of the model, but I have sense turned 180 seeing it not as a problematic spot in the lineup, but as a blessing. In its design, the 964 remains more firmly attached to its predecessors than to its successor and in that regard serves as a welcome evolution of the classic 911 design. As I’ve remarked before, seen on the roads now they possess a presence that I didn’t feel in earlier years and a presence greater than that of the 993. Day or night when a 964 approaches me I know what it is as that iconic 911 shape comes into better view. The one we see here brings a brightness to that shape with its Guards Red exterior and contrasts it with a Black interior. At just 52,174 miles this 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa should have a long life left ahead of it.

1963 Porsche 356B Carrera 2 Coupe

When we feature the Porsche 356 the point isn’t typically about performance. And, in a certain way, it isn’t about performance here either. But like the Speedster and its lightweight no frills philosophy the 356 Carrera 2 brought with it a more performance-oriented mindset and in its day was very much so about performance. The Carrera 2 featured a larger 2.0 liter flat-4 four cam engine producing 130 hp, which gave it a significant boost in power over its 1.6 liter siblings. Add to that disc brakes at all 4 wheels and you had better stopping power to rein in those extra horses. These were a technologically sophisticated model that provided Porsche’s customers with some of the best performance available all the while sporting the same elegant curves of every other 356. The one we see here comes in the particularly wonderful color combination of Oslo Blue over Tan.
