The 964 Porsche 911 Speedster has always been a cool novelty, but that doesn’t mean it is only that. I think these stayed true to the original 356 Speedster compared to Turbo-bodied 3.2 Carrera-based 911 Speedster, 997 Speedster, and 991 Speedster that is basically just a GT3. Porsche also blessed the US market with the fixed-back lightweight seats that were in the 964 RS for that extra feeling over the 964 Cabriolet. Only 936 examples were produced, with 427 Speedsters heading Stateside. These pop up for sale from time to time, but most are tucked away in collections given their rarity and the aircooled boom. This example up for sale in California checks in with 34,000 miles and some odd little custom touches that makes Porsche so unpredictable at times.

964 Speedsters are among the rarest 911 models ever imported with just 427 coming to the US market out of the total production run of 936. With the improved second generation 3.6L engine (after 1992) producing 247 HP and with many of the RS pieces and the lightweight speedster the resulting curb weight of just 2977 pounds makes the 964 Speedster among the most lively performers in Porsche’s lineup for 1994. If you are in search of a collector quality, low mileage and owner count 964 Speedster you will be hard pressed to find a finer example on the market today at any price.
A classic black over black example, with yellow accents? We’ve seen the yellow face plate for the instrument cluster before on a yellow 964 Speedster from a few years ago, but I’m not quite sure where all the yellow accents came from. I can buy the yellow seat belts given those aren’t something you get off eBay to swap in, but the shift boot, e-brake handle, and door pulls? Not sure if those were factory. This car is thankfully optioned with the 964 RS seats which I think is a must-have option if you were buying one of these, as I think they fit the style and purpose of the car really well. Another big relief is that the car went through a full service and addressed all the needs. Not that these cars are unreliable, but given their propensity to sit for long periods of time, it is nice to have everything tidied up.
The ask on this one is $135,500, which is probably in the ball park, but high. Keep in mind this is a Porsche dealer in California, so this is no surprise. A very nice one sold for over $150,000 all-in a few months ago, but that car had 14,000 miles. Is a car with 20,000 more miles worth $15,000 less? Tough to say. Prices bottom out at around $100,000 for these and seemingly have no limit given the mileage, color, and options. Cool example here, just need to maybe see a window sticker on this one to find out about the splashes of yellow.
