1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6

The Turbo 3.6. An enduring favorite of pretty much everyone and we especially enjoy coming across them around here. In the short life span of the 964 the Turbo 3.6 existed for a mere two years serving as a showcase of what Porsche had hoped to achieve with the car from the outset, even if it took some time to arrive. While the standard 964 began life with a new 3.6 liter flat-six engine and significantly redesigned body, the Turbo filled those new curves with the 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-six carried over from the 930. While great in and of themselves, those early 964 Turbos were always a stopgap while we waited for the full expression of these cars. They were worth the wait. In today’s market, a Turbo 3.6 far eclipses most 3.3 liter Turbos in value and like it or not many seem to have spent most of their lives in a nice garage, rarely driven. Here we have just such a car: a Black 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6, located in Illinois, with Red leather interior and just 17,358 miles on it.

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 on eBay


Year: 1994
Model: 911 Turbo 3.6
Engine: 3.6 liter turbocharged flat-6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 17,358 mi
Price: Reserve auction



The seller hasn’t really bothered with much description, but it doesn’t take long to tell that this is a pretty spectacular car that has spent most of its time being pampered. The garish interior isn’t to my liking, even if it surely adds a degree of rarity to this already rare and very desirable 964, though with a more subtle shade of red, leaning towards burgundy, this would be beautiful. We’ve come across a few of these cars lately, all with very high prices and none (that I recall) sold. This one shows the lowest mileage of the bunch and has received one bid at $255,000, but with the reserve unmet this auction appears it also will end without a sale. At $255,000, however, I imagine some negotiating will take place and seller and buyer will reach an accord.

    The shade of red has no dignity. What a terrible pity.

    @Brad – I appreciate your comments on color choices and ideas…we’re on the same wavelength more often than not.

    That description is beyond hysterical…I’ve sold stuff on eBay worth 1/1000th or less with more words. He must be new to eBay or just expects his ad to work like a teaser and not a sales mechanism. Or possibly he’s an idiot. Ha.

    with all due respects gents…this car needs no further explanation..
    if your a serious buyer you know what a 3.6 964 is….and these cars have rarely fallen into the hands of people who don’t care for them…if it’s in your budget…and a Can-Can Red interior is not hard on your eyes…a PPI and service records will tell all…
    as for the price…well this one even though has very low mileage is touching 3.6 S territory….
    and we won’t even go into the very limited “flat-nose” variety….
    there are several 964 3.6’s for sale in my area….”2″ plain janes & “1” S version….
    I was lucky enough to drive one of them and I was smiling for a week!…
    way out of my price point but I do want a 964 Turbo one day…

    No point in me talking about the price; it’s so far out of my league…

    However, sign me up as one of the people who actually like the interior. I get so tired of seeing tans and grays that this color is like a breath of fresh air to me.

    It seems sad to me that this car has never and probably will never be driven enough to truly appreciate it. But then again I’ve never been one to view an automobile as a work of art that should only be polished and stared upon. I’d much rather drive them.

    The bid price makes the mid-$40k asking price for the last 996TT I drove seem to be quite a bargain.

    @Mdriver – I’m not saying it needs a Wikipedia article to explain its lineage and specs, I mean I want to know that a guy who asks a quarter million $ for a car that is 20 years and about 20k mi old is at least as anal with its care & service as I am with my daily driver. If that’s too much effort for the seller I’d buy privately from someone who doesn’t let Meguiars & Armor All do all of his talking for him.

    This is what happens when its a seller’s market and one can make a good business selling a product that has undergone no vetting and when no mastery of what you sell is needed.

    “Rarely fall into the hands of people that don’t have a budget…”
    @Mdriver – I respect and enjoy your comments on here, but that statement is a logical fallacy.

    Kind of not totally applicable, but look at what is happening to the Sultan of Brunei’s collection right now – it’s mostly falling apart, but every one of those supercars will someday be sold by a guy making (incorrectly) the same argument you just did.

    *i’d like to revise my previous statement a little, I wasn’t looking hard enough, I guess this is a private seller. I will stick with my contention that he isn’t experienced with eBay though. He should pay a professional to take 50+ high quality pics and write a description. That way he can stop re-listing it and actually sell it.

    @Ry… you paraphrased what I said..what I actually said was .”they rarely fall into the hands of people that don’t care for them..” AND I said if it’s in your budget and Can-Can Red is appealing to you…
    these are very rare birds roughly 400 built in 1994 for US…..
    and looking at the photos of the CGT and other P-Cars….IF this is an individual seller/owner….he has a nice little collection

    @Mdriver – I apologize, my paraphrase did indeed distort what you had said, in effect I might have mostly been disagreeing with myself. Lol

    Yes he does appear to have a nice collection, assuming that’s an individual’s garage. I’m only about 30-40min from him (he’s in the boonies of far, far NW Chicago suburbia). I could ask some of my friends that are PCA member types if they are familiar with the guy.

    I hope there’s a part of his garage where he’s stashing an expansive collection of tools as well, it looks kind of car-display focused! Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 😉

    For a Porsche guy- this is the bee’s knees, air cooled, 964, handbuilt, not the AWD, 5speed, turbo, would a true P-guy prefer sunroof delete, probably, and as far as the red interior, if you can afford this baby and you bought it on ebay, you have the room in your garage for the interior, and the ebay account to buy a black interior to cruise around in….

    I love the interior, the photos dont do it justice. The 965 3.6 turbo is the only 964 variant I have never owned and with the way they’re priced now I wont ever own.

    There was a bright green one on the market about 7 or 8 years ago at RPM that went to Europe and I was close to pulling the trigger around $110k but at $200k plus you cant drive the car its now strictly a collector car / sunday driver.

    Looks like a nice example. The one to own is the Package car… which is the S variant without the ugly slant nose. IIRC there were a dozen maybe 2 dozen made for the US. To me thats the top of the air cooled food chain.

    Prices on air cooled cars are so silly now it makes me want to sell my 88, but what would I replace it with?

    a 91 Turbo I car came to market Blk/Blk 37k on the odo…ask $135

    MDriver… that sounds like a pretty good price for a 91 turbo with those miles. It cant be compared to a 94 3.6 Turbo like this one.

  14. MDriver

    @Howard not comparing the two cars…just trying to show how the pricing for a straight 964 Turbo has reached almost mid six figures….wasn’t my intention to do a direct this or that…
    but as an aside the same dealer has an 04 996 GT3 w/7k on the odo and the ask is 88k again different cars I know but as much as I love the 964 Turbo…I’d have a hard time justifying the price difference….especially to the wife!
