1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 – owned by Ferdinand Porsche’s daughter

From time to time we come across cars with an interesting ownership history, usually something owned by a famous athlete or actor, or the occasional car owned by a highly-regarded builder or racing driver. This car here, however, a 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4, painted in a very subtle Silver Purple Metallic, takes all of that to a different level. This particular 964 was the car built for Dr. Ferdinand Porsche’s daughter, Louise Piëch, which gives it a cool factor that is difficult to surpass. Of course, some buyers care little for these sorts of details, and as such this probably isn’t the car for them, but at least it provides other interesting details like a rarely seen exterior color and unique interior trim. All of these things combine to make this Carrera 4 a car that clearly is set apart from the pack.

Determining a fair price is essentially impossible here as this is the only extant model and while 85,900 Euro (~$107,000) is quite high for any Carrera 4 the price more or less comes down to: How much is the uniqueness of this car worth to you? For a collector interested in a true museum piece this would have to be a car to put on one’s radar. It’s a rare color combination, it appears in good condition, and it was owned by the daughter of the founder of the marque. As a talking piece that would be very tough to top.

  1. Cool color & really interesting interior!

    PS – is that Jon Voight’s LeBaron convertible in the background?

  2. I’d prefer that glossy red 5!

  3. Check the glove box, you might find one of Jon Voight’s chewed up pencils. That would be sure proof of providence.

  4. Vic…lol!

    Interestingly, Louise Piëch would have taken delivery of this car around age 85…I wonder if she actually drove it much.

  5. Ry, you’ve must be confused with Ferdinand’s mother which has the same name as his daughter.

  6. Thank you @Hurst for clarifying! I appreciate it.
