A Tahoe Blue Metallic 964 is a color I used to never see come up for sale and then suddenly it seemed common. Of course, by common I mean that I have come across and posted three different examples over the past 14 months so they aren’t really that common, but given that none seemed to exist before that you get the idea. Of the three I have posted two have been Turbos and one was a C4 Cabriolet. Were I looking for a 964 those really aren’t the models I’d be looking for. What I’d be looking for is the one we see here: a Carrera 2 Coupe. So for me that makes this one the best of the bunch.

Tahoe Blue is one of Porsche’s brighter metallic light blues and is a bit on the sky/smurf blue part of the spectrum. Those blues don’t always tend to be the most popular among 911 fans so even though it’s a rare color it isn’t necessarily one for which everyone will be clamoring. I happen to like it quite a lot. It isn’t as light as Iris Blue Metallic, which we frequently see on the 3.2 Carrera, and for me that is a benefit. I prefer that extra brightness. I have always preferred my bright blues to be non-metallic and Tahoe is no different in that regard, but it walks the line pretty well and still looks really good. Here it is contrasted with a Tan leather interior and the colors work quite well together. This is a case when I’d prefer a black interior, but I wouldn’t quibble too much over it.
The overall condition of everything here looks quite good and while it isn’t totally original I think we can excuse the few additions it appears to have received. Most notable of those are the Cup wheels, a perfect complement to any 964 and which look great here. This 911 is lowered to Euro height and also has a newer headunit. Otherwise, it appears pretty much original. There’s no word on whether the paint itself is original, but hopefully a paint meter can answer that question.
Altogether this is a great looking rear-drive 964. Given that it has 133K miles on it I’d probably hope for a little better price, but I’m not sure if we could consider it absurd given the rare color and general condition. I’ll admit I’ve somewhat struggled to get a feel for the 964 market of late so I could be off base, but I think in general the pricing here isn’t too bad. Regardless, I love the car and if everything on it checks out I’m sure its new owner will as well.
Tahoe blue is not quite as dark as Minerva blue.
With regards to this particular car: It was purchased by RMC off of eBay a couple months ago for $42k. The paint is not original. Its been hit, and hit hard from behind. Take another look at the rear shot of the car. There is not a single straight gap, light, seem, reflector or anything. Its been well discussed on some of the common Porsche forums.
Run Forest, run….
Excellent information Howard. I looked at the picture of the rear and it definitely looks like Mickey Mouse job of a repair that may just go unnoticed by an internet purchaser. Question… How does something like this escape a salvage/rebuilt/reconstructed title, especially now that companies like carfax have started reporting crippling info retroactively?
Carfax has been reporting retro for a long time. The catch is they can only report what’s reported to them. So if your car is rear ended, like this 964, and you have it repaired by a shop who does not report to carfax, it simply goes unreported.
In the world of air cooled 911’s, whether this car should have been totaled or not all depends on when the accident happened. If it occurred before 2012 or so when this was a 20 to 25k car then maybe it should have been totaled. If it happened in the last few years when this became a 50k car then it probably should have just been repaired better and not totaled.
