1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6

Given the relatively short time in which it was around, it is kind of staggering to consider the number of variants produced of the 964. Even looking beyond the many different Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 models there were also 4 different turbos, the Speedster, the Carrera RS America, the Carrera Cup and the America Roadster. Granted, some of these were made in very small numbers, but still we certainly could not accuse Porsche of being complacent during this time! And here we have one of those rarer variants, a 1994 Black Metallic Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6. For the final two model years of the 964 Porsche released a turbocharged version of the standard 3.6 liter flat-six that had been the primary motivation of the rest of the 964 line since its inception. While this wouldn’t be the last 964 Turbo, that would be the 3.6 Turbo S, these are still highly sought after and prized by Porsche enthusiasts as some of the last rear-drive 911 Turbos Porsche produced.

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

Upon its release the 911 Turbo was an instant marvel. Here was a car that combined aggressive looks and prodigious power in a package that was actually reasonably practical and usable. The supercar world was turned on its head. Even today those early cars still provide an excellent driving experience and are capable of running with many performance cars. That initial offering saw its only significant change take place in 1978 as displacement increased from 3.0 to 3.3 liters, but for the remaining 12 years of its life the 930 simply continued to excel with a tried and true formula. Even when the 964 Turbo was released it still used the same engine that Porsche had utilized since 1978, except now that engine was improved and the car came in a more refined package. Still, the 964 Turbo was a brute and with all of that power being delivered to the rear of a car already having a rearward weight distribution it made for very exciting driving! As we continue to see prices rise for air-cooled 911s, and the Turbo especially, it becomes increasingly unlikely that these will be seen outside of someone’s garage, but we can still marvel at them from a distance. The example we see here is a Black 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Illinois, with 59,530 miles on it.

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

If Thursday’s 3.6 Turbo S has you thinking about the 964 Turbo, but perhaps not one sitting at the very top of the market, then the car here may suit your needs a little bit better. Here we have an example from the first iteration of these cars that utilized a refined version of the 930’s well-known 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-six. While the 3.3 liter 964 Turbo doesn’t have quite the power of the later 3.6 Turbo, it relies on a proven powertrain that still delivers exceptional performance capable of providing plenty of wild rides for any driver whose attention wanes at the wrong moment. While the Carrera 4 first was introduced with the 964, the 964 Turbo itself remained rear-wheel drive only. The example here is a Guards Red over Black 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Ohio, with only 36,630 miles on it.

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S ‘Package Car’

The Holy Grail. Indiana Jones found it and lost it; Arthur and his knights were thwarted by the French and arrested by British police. It is the thing we all search for, but is a constantly shifting and elusive form. For automotive enthusiasts there are numerous possibilities, but for fans of the 911 Turbo this is the model about which most will speak. The 964 Turbo could never be pinned down. Because a turbocharged version of the M64 initially wasn’t ready the earliest cars used the 3.3 liter flat-six from the 930. Then in 1992, as a final send-off for that 3.3 liter engine, a Turbo S was produced prior to the introduction of the proper 3.6 liter Turbo. But even this would not be the last model, because in 1994 Porsche took all of the remaining 964 Turbo chassis, some 93 cars, and created the 3.6 liter Turbo S. Most of those were also optioned as a Flatnose, but there were two variants that remain some of the rarest 911 models ever produced. The Japanese market received 10 examples, all painted Polar Silver Metallic, fitted with the 935-derived Slantnose, made popular on the 930, rather than the 968-derived Flatnose of the Turbo S cars. And then there is the model we see here: only offered in the US market there were 17 ‘Package’ cars, which had all of the standard Turbo S options EXCEPT the Flatnose. The front end was mostly akin to any other 964 Turbo. 17 were produced, 10 in Black, 2 with Black over Cashmere leather, 1 of those was an exhibition vehicle. All of which leaves this car as a 1 of 1.

1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose

A Black Slantnose 930: the poster boy of ’80s flamboyance and excess. There are a lot of things I love about these cars. Derived from the Porsche 935 racer, the Slantnose came along as an option for the 930 coupe. Gone were the iconic front headlamps so familiar to fans of the 911, replaced by a sloping front end with pop-up lights. While the shape might be aerodynamically sensible, porschephiles remain divided on the Slantnose’s appeal, but it is undeniable that the unique shape is one that can be taken in for quite some time. A 930 itself would rarely be a car for those who are faint of heart and a Slantnose 930 turns the attention-getting dial well upward. The particular example featured here comes from the 1987 model year and sits with just 38,800 miles.

1987 Porsche 911 Turbo

One of the drawbacks to writing about cars for sale is that generally our only actual experience of that particular car is through the pictures and ads we peruse. There are exceptions, but that’s the basic nature of it. That means when we come across particularly interesting examples it naturally creates a strong desire to see more and to really spend time taking in all of the details in a way that any number of pictures could never achieve. Such is the case with this car, a Cassis Red 1987 Porsche 930, located in New Jersey, with Burgundy leather interior and only 20,342 miles. Every shift of the lighting and every movement of the body changes the color of this car just slightly and when that shade is applied to a design that is as aggressive as the 930 it leads to a renewed appreciation for what has always been a fantastic car. I go back and forth on whether I think this color works well with the ethos of the 930 itself, but even so it’s a pleasure to take in.

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

Coming on the heels of the Porsche 930, the 964 Turbo had big shoes to fill and fill them it did. Utilizing an refined version of the same 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-six that powered the 930, the 964 Turbo paired a prodigious powerplant with a redesigned body, which was almost entirely new while remaining faithful to the basic profile of the car. The 964 Turbo (and the 964 in general) wouldn’t be around long and the 3.3 liter version itself possessed an even shorter life-span. But it certainly played its role and continued to bring supercar levels or performance to the marque while Porsche developed a turbocharged version of the 964’s 3.6 liter engine. This all brings us to the car featured here, a 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Raleigh, NC, sitting at right around 77,800 miles.

1988 Porsche 930

The Porsche 930 is a fairly constant presence amongst these pages and for good reason. Its brash combination of performance and styling has held our attention for decades and images of these fantastic machines have found their way onto more than one bedroom wall. We always enjoy finding interesting examples and for me personally many times that means finding one in black. A black 930 has the presence to go with the diabolical dynamics and leaves no doubt that this is not a car to be taken lightly. This particular 930 comes from 1988, near the end of the model’s run, and has seen only 46,700 miles.

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 Coupe

Those who obsess over air-cooled 911s, and the 964 especially, will need little introduction to this model. While this isn’t the pinnacle of the 964 Turbo line (that would be the Turbo S), the Turbo 3.6 possesses enough rarity and panache to hold our attention any time we come across one. When Porsche initially developed and released the 964 Turbo they had yet to develop a forced induction example of the 3.6 liter flat-six that was standard across the 964 line. Naturally, they chose to stick with the well known 3.3 liter engine that had powered the 930 over the previous decade and it was not until 1993 that a 3.6 liter version of the 911 Turbo would be released. With 360 hp delivered to the rear wheels, the Turbo 3.6 remains one of the best 911 Turbos ever produced and the last of the rear-drive Turbos as the 993 would come standard with all-wheel drive. These are, quite simply, exquisite! The example featured here is a Titanium Metallic 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 Coupe, located in New Jersey, with 38,176 miles on it.

1983 Porsche 930 Cabriolet

The 930 has always possessed its own ’80s flare that few other cars can eclipse. Make that 930 a Cabriolet, cloak it in metallic paint and give it a nearly white interior and now we’re really talking ’80s. Lately we haven’t seen nearly as many 930 Cabriolets come up for sale relative to the Coupe so when we do come across one it always grabs our attention. The case is no different with this eye-catching Platinum Metallic 1983 Porsche 930 Cabriolet, located in Colorado, with Parchment leather interior and 87,898 miles. Like a few of the recent 930s we’ve featured here at GCFSB this one is a RoW 930 as the 930 was unavailable in the US market during this time.
