1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

Over time the 964 has grown on me quite a bit and right now they might just represent some of the best values on the 911 market. While a 996 likely still stands as a better performance value, the 964 clearly looks like it will hold, and increase, its value over time to a greater degree than seems likely with the 996. However, the time for a 964 serving as a good value may be short lived and the car we see here would probably not be the first choice of a value-seeking buyer. Nonetheless, this Diamond Blue Metallic 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in Santa Barbara, should make an interesting option for any 911 enthusiast and while it could make for a good collector it already has enough miles on it that its new owner should be able to enjoy driving it fairly often as well.

If you have read this far you must know your 964’s pretty well. These cars have really taken off in value lately. Is it because Singer chose them as their only platform? Is it because they are the last of the truly hand built, iconic 911’s? Or is it because they are just a blast to drive and do EVERYTHING so well? Who knows? We do know that they won’t be going down in value anytime soon.

I don’t feel I’m mistaken saying that this car is probably not best represented in these pictures. The Diamond Blue Metallic exterior comes across as too gray, almost even a dull gray, and the interior simply looks black and white. In person, these colors will likely show depth and dimensions that can’t be appreciated without high quality photography. What we should have then is a well-documented, enthusiast-owned, 964 Carrera 2 in a very unique color combination that retains its originality. To me, that makes what feels like a fairly high asking price quite a bit more realistic. Ultimately, with this mileage the price will probably have to come down, but we have all seen where prices for air-cooled 911s have gone and original cars in unique colors have tended to do quite well.

  1. Beautiful color combo. These cars are very quick with the 3.6 l motor, not too far off 993 performance. I think the bargain basement 964’s have passed, as its rare to fund a good example under 25K anymore. A few years ago, people were having trouble giving these away at 20k.. This one should sell for $30k as a fair price to both parties, mileage is a bit too high to ask premium dollar. Linen interior with contrast piping….. drool 🙂

  2. It wasn’t that long ago that I was looking at a couple of 964s with 70k-ish miles with asking prices in the mid to upper teens. I get the feeling I can cross an air cooled 911 off my bucket list because they are now priced in the ridiculous territory.

  3. Fantastic car that has generated no serious interest due to unrealistic pricing and “I ain’t got time for you” tone of writing.

    While he’s as welcome as anyone to reap the rewards of a serious upturn in the 964 market, there are lower mileage examples available for less. I agree $28-30K would be fair market these days, as crazy as that sounds, for a 90K car that is known for needing a top end rebuild around this mileage, unlike the earlier 3.2 engines.

    Here is a dealer ad for a 964 w/52K and $37,995 ask:


    As an aside, a beautiful white 1993 Carrera 2 w/77K went up on the Northern NJ craigslist two weeks ago for $25K. Seller’s response was a bit vague, and it sounded too good to be true, but the same car is now listed on a dealer’s site for $42K, I e-mailed the craigslist seller, and he replied the dealer showed up with a briefcase of cash and didn’t even test drive the car. That’s what we’re dealing with these days…scratch the 964 off your list unless you’re willing to throw cash at something immediately.
