I came very close to buying this car, but having just announced the formation of MotoringBlogs and a change in eventual career, it’s really not the right time. And it’s killing me. My much younger 18 year old self is going kick my own ass for this, but I need to hold off just a little longer — especially in this economy.
Enough crying because someone else needs to snag this great deal. I spotted this 1990 Porsche Carrera 2 on 6SpeedOnline and immediately went to work on my research.
This is a very clean example of an early Porsche C2! It has been owned by the same individual since 1996.
The car has roughly 130k miles on it but the newer motor/clutch/fly-wheel have roughly 35k miles!
The car has been lowered with H&R lowering springs
It has a Weltmeister chip
Racing Dynamics front strut brace
Custom crossover exhaust
New steering rack and tie-rod ends
Brakes were replaced recently and are in great shape!
New sunroof cables
New hood shocks
Comes with service records and was well cared for and maintained!
Comes with Speedware Harness bar and belts (belts are expired)
Comes with Bike rack as well
OVERALL, this is an exceptional car for its age! It has been well cared for and it shows. If you are looking for a good driver, a track car or a car to turn into a racer car, you can’t beat this one for the price!
I want to send a big thank you to Dan at SpeedWare Motorsports in Redmond, Washington. They are handling the sale of this car for one of their customers. He is a class act and has proven to be very fast in answering all my questions, not to mention he is obviously an enthusiast himself. I encourage any real and potential buyers to contact him right away to lock up this sale right away.
I’ll be posting a Porsche 964 Buyer’s Online Resource guide soon about how you can do your own research and become an educated buyer.
[…] 1990 Porsche Carrera 2 For Sale: Great Looking Car Under $20k! […]
1990 is an iffy year. I generally steer clear of 1990’s. Dual mass flywheel issues, no head gasket issue.
bla bla bla…. looks reasonable but hard to say from pictures
well my understanding is that the standard 964 issues on this one were handled with the rebuild.
And I have a soft spot for the 964 anyway, especially in black on black. I still think about this car and wonder why I didn’t find a way!!
I am a 964 guy hands down. I have owned just about every model 964 there is, 94 widebody, 94 speedster, 93 RSA, couple of coupes and even a standard 92 cab. I have not owned a C4 nor and AR. The all wheel drive system on the 964 is overly complex and heavy. Its a great unit but if it goes man does it get expensive.
Hard to say just from the description whether they really did the gasket job on that car.
Never worry about a car you didnt buy there is always just as good a deal on another car you’ll want just around the corner.
send me the specs on what you’re looking for and I can find it for you.
I thought I’d let you know that I just bought this car (My first Porsche…I’ve been a huge fan my entire life). I had a PPI done at Aker’s Great shop, have been in Seattle since 1965. Aker races a Porsche-cooper and his son a 356… I’ve seen them every year at the historics. The car checked out great. Engine/Flyweel issues mentioned have been already taken care of. All records (big stack!) show meticulous care by previous owner.
I’ll be looking forward to your 964 guide- Great job you’ve done on this site.
Dan at Speedware was great to deal with and I look forward to enjoying every mile in my new Carrera.
See you all on the road- Dave
Thanks for your post. I’d love to here more about this car. I’ll be sending an email shortly.
Congrats on your purchase!
