1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

I love a red interior. Even the very bright red interiors. Porsche has long made such interiors available to those who like them. I also am a big fan of the 964. Curiously, I’m not sure I’ve ever featured a 964 with a red interior. Well, at least, not a standard 964. I think there have been a couple ultra-rare models, but I won’t count those.

At last I have found one: this Black 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe, located in Los Angeles, with a Matador Red interior and 105,420 miles on it. I don’t think I’ve seen Matador Red before, not knowingly anyway. It looks great with just the right amount of brightness. While it may only be the lighting in these pictures it doesn’t appear quite as bright as some of Porsche’s other offerings like Can-can Red or Lobster. I think for most that likely gives it a nice balance. For those who find a black car to be a bit dull, perhaps this interior will help liven things up. It’s quite beautiful.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet

I’m kind of mesmerized by this shade of blue. The color is Tahoe Blue Metallic and here it adorns a 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet for sale in Florida with 63,755 miles on it. We’ve featured Tahoe Blue Metallic before, but don’t see it often. It’s a rare color and wasn’t available for very many years. What really has me awed is the way it possesses so much color even while being photographed in the shade. It really pops and as someone who has always been a big fan of blue in general it’s a great version of the color. It won’t snap your head around the way Riviera Blue might, but it won’t blind you either. It reminds me of a richer version of Iris Blue from the ’80s and is just really pretty.

Maritime Blue 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet

I’ve passed by this 993 a few times and I’m starting to think that I shouldn’t have. I obviously notice it any time I see it. Maritime Blue, especially on a 993, will do that. It’s a great non-metallic blue and it really grabs your attention. So why ignore it? For starters it is for me the least desirable model: a Carrera 4 Cabriolet. In fairness, it’s a manual transmission so it could be worse, but overall it’s not a model I’d seek out. Second, I hate the wing. Like really hate it.

So the color would draw me in, I’d take notice, see the wing, and move on. However, that’s not entirely fair. There’s a lot of good going on with this 911 and the wing is something that can be changed. So let’s take a look. As I said this is a paint-to-sample Maritime Blue 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet. It has only 30,412 miles and the paint is mostly original – both bumpers have been repainted. It also has some interesting options with the rear seat delete, the hi-fi sound package, and 18″ Technology wheels among a few others. There’s more going on here than I initially realized.

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.

1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Widebody

We’re moving on from last week’s look at (mostly) British and right-hand drive machines. It was admittedly a fun week of exploring cars that we don’t usually look at and in some cases that we may never see in person. Now we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming, but I hope we can still find a few interesting options for those in search of their newest source of motoring enjoyment.

I’ll start here with what is still a pretty rare model: a Guards Red 1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe that importantly is one of the few widebody coupes Porsche produced during the final year of 964 production. The mileage is quite reasonable at 70,785 and the condition looks pretty good, even if the pictures aren’t the greatest for assessing that condition.

I go back on forth on whether I actually like the wide body on the 964, at least outside of the Turbo. Based on other examples I’ve seen some of this tends to depend on the presence of the rear spoiler. With the spoiler I love the look, without the spoiler, as we have here, I’m less smitten.…

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

I will begin with this question: is the price of this 911 reasonable? I ask because for as long as I can remember the 993 has never really struck me as priced reasonably relative to other 911s. Or, at least, I think it’s fair to say that prices for the 993 never really dropped to the same levels that we have seen with other 911 models. Whether those prices are reasonable then depends on a whole host of other factors. So let’s keep that sense of relative pricing in mind. We all know the reasons for the 993’s pricing: they are the last of the great air-cooled 911s and come in a very sexy package. Porsche also switched to a more mass production method of manufacture with the 996, which gives the 993 a certain level of additional cachet. Naturally collectors have loved them. But when the miles increase and the air-cooled market cools off, then perhaps we start finding more 993s with lower asking prices.

The one we see here, a Midnight Blue 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with Cashmere Beige interior and 107,100 miles on it, seems to fit that bill priced at $44,900.

1996 PORSCHE 993 C4 “Well serviced, Good Records, Excellent throughout”

VIN: WP0AA2995TS32572

The Porsche 911 is arguably the most recognizable and iconic sports car ever made. Refined from 1965 until the present day, they are highly sought after for their great looks and wonderful performance.

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

To whale tail or not to whale tail? That is the question. Perhaps this 911 will further the divergence in the conversation. Of course, on the 964 a whale tail is a much more rare thing. One of the engineering changes that debuted with the 964 was the electronically activated rear spoiler that raised to provide better aerodynamics at speed. The intent was a best-of-both-worlds design: the purity of the 911’s shape remained intact, but stability at higher speeds could be improved as well. There were some exceptions: the RS America did away with the fancy electronic spoiler in favor of a whale tail and, of course, the 911 Turbo continued to showcase a tail similar in design to the original tea tray of the 930. The owner of this 964 has chosen to add the tail to this Silver 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe.

1991 Porche 911 Carrera C4. Adult owned, Garage Kept, and Covered. 99% Original. I added the Whales tail, a new radio, new brakes, new tires, Wheels have new Powder coating, A/C is serviced yearly, Nerw front windshield, Paint is a 9.6/10. Everything works on the car. The engine is original, but is in great condition. I have my eye on a new toy, so had to pick one to let go of. Please call with any Questions.

While the overall appearance isn’t quite as great as the whale-tail equipped Widebody Carrera 4 I featured previously, this is a pretty good looking 964. With the whale tail and the Cup wheels this Carrera 4 looks an awful lot like a RS America.…

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

Second 964 in a row for me and this one is a little bit more unique. Given my discussion yesterday of the relative aesthetic merits of the 964 Coupe vs Targa it also makes for a fitting contrast. Like the Carmine Red 930 I featured last week, this 964 comes in one of the red variants that Porsche generally made available. Velvet Red Metallic is not nearly as subtle a contrast as Carmine Red, but it makes for a very nice color that is not quite Burgundy but also not one of the bright reds like Guards Red. The seller states that it’s paint to sample, but that isn’t correct. Regardless, it’s rare and looks great here contrasted with the Tan interior. This 964 comes from the first year of the model’s production, meaning not only was it the all new 911 design, but was also the first-year Carrera 4 that Porsche chose for the 964 debut. At a little under 100K miles it’s a sharp-looking 911.

In 1989 the Carrera 4 was the most technically sophisticated 911 ever to enter serious production. This C4 Runs, Drives, and Performs Flawlessly, and is a blast to drive.
Shifts into all 5 gears well, and pulls hard our of each shift. No Smoking or funny noises coming from the engine. This is a California Car so no rust, corrosion anywhere. Does have typical 964 oil leaks, nothing major.

Paint and Exterior are in beautiful condition.

With the use of the new stout platform, a redesigned suspension and the marriage of four-wheel drive coupled to the new 3.6-liter flat six, Porsche had achieved the ultimate 911, the “C4”.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with 10,604 Miles

Somewhat needless to say, but we don’t see a 964 like this very often at all. Obviously ultra-low-mileage 911s are rare. However, we do come across them with some regularity and, of course, among the limited-production models very low miles is almost the norm. But a fairly standard 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe? I haven’t seen it. I almost wonder how a 964 like this came about. I suspect it was bought with the intention of being part of a collection as the first Carrera 4 model Porsche produced. As a piece of Porsche engineering history it certainly will hold appeal in that regard and here it sits now in original condition as a time capsule from that era. For the very thorough collector it should make for a nice addition.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

This post is intended to serve in part to provide some perspective on the Baltic Blue Carrera 2 posted earlier this week. That car had some questions regarding paintwork, current maintenance and modifications. It also had a ton of miles. The asking price didn’t seem to be taking those factors much into account, which is where the comparison with this 964 may be useful.

This one is also Baltic Blue Metallic, though this time it is a 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe rather than a Carrera 2 Coupe. The mileage is much lower, in fact it’s quite reasonable given its age, and the condition appears to raise far fewer questions. The asking price is indeed higher, but perhaps not by as much as we’d expect given their differences. Comparing a Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 isn’t quite the perfect comparison, but there are enough similarities that we can at least make use of it.
