1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Widebody

We’re moving on from last week’s look at (mostly) British and right-hand drive machines. It was admittedly a fun week of exploring cars that we don’t usually look at and in some cases that we may never see in person. Now we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming, but I hope we can still find a few interesting options for those in search of their newest source of motoring enjoyment.

I’ll start here with what is still a pretty rare model: a Guards Red 1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe that importantly is one of the few widebody coupes Porsche produced during the final year of 964 production. The mileage is quite reasonable at 70,785 and the condition looks pretty good, even if the pictures aren’t the greatest for assessing that condition.

I go back on forth on whether I actually like the wide body on the 964, at least outside of the Turbo. Based on other examples I’ve seen some of this tends to depend on the presence of the rear spoiler. With the spoiler I love the look, without the spoiler, as we have here, I’m less smitten. There is something about the narrow body 964 that I really enjoy in ways that doesn’t apply to other 911 models. But, as I said, I go back and forth with it.

So the exterior shots aren’t great here, making it difficult to see what shape the Guards Red paint is in. It looks fine, but we can’t tell specifically. It’s definitely got great pop! The interior is a bit easier to assess and looks in very nice shape. Our hope would be that the quality of the interior condition holds true for the exterior. There are other points in this 911’s favor as well – it’s said to be one owner, to possess all of its original books, and to be entirely original – though we aren’t provided with the necessary material to back up those claims. All of that will need to be confirmed of course.

Bidding currently sits at $70,100 with not much time left in this auction and the reserve remains unmet. These wide body 911s do tend to be fairly pricey relative to other 964s, but with more than 70K miles on it we’re probably close to as high as this one should go. If everything I questioned above checks out, and there are plenty of service records available, then I could see a premium, but ultimately this one might slip slightly off the radar of some collectors and limit its potential.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

I will begin with this question: is the price of this 911 reasonable? I ask because for as long as I can remember the 993 has never really struck me as priced reasonably relative to other 911s. Or, at least, I think it’s fair to say that prices for the 993 never really dropped to the same levels that we have seen with other 911 models. Whether those prices are reasonable then depends on a whole host of other factors. So let’s keep that sense of relative pricing in mind. We all know the reasons for the 993’s pricing: they are the last of the great air-cooled 911s and come in a very sexy package. Porsche also switched to a more mass production method of manufacture with the 996, which gives the 993 a certain level of additional cachet. Naturally collectors have loved them. But when the miles increase and the air-cooled market cools off, then perhaps we start finding more 993s with lower asking prices.

The one we see here, a Midnight Blue 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with Cashmere Beige interior and 107,100 miles on it, seems to fit that bill priced at $44,900.

1996 PORSCHE 993 C4 “Well serviced, Good Records, Excellent throughout”

VIN: WP0AA2995TS32572

The Porsche 911 is arguably the most recognizable and iconic sports car ever made. Refined from 1965 until the present day, they are highly sought after for their great looks and wonderful performance. The “993” variant, with its position as the last of the air cooled Porsches is perhaps the most collectable of the 911’s. From the humble 911 beginnings, Porsche set about refining each new model over the previous iteration, and the “993” body styled cars strike the almost perfect balance of refinement and rawness. The wonderful level of drivability and feel guarantee that the “993” will always be among the most collectable of all of the Porsche 911’s.

This 107,000 mile 1996 Porsche C4 coupe is nicely optioned, was recently serviced, and is ready to go. The Midnight Blue exterior and Cashmere interior, show beautifully. The exterior paint is excellent, with only minor wear around the car. The paint has good luster and a deep shine. The Cashmere interior is, likewise, excellent, the leather supple and shows littel wear, and the carpets show well. All electrical and mechanical systems function as they should. She has a well documented service history, and all books. The wheels are in excellent condition, as are the tires. This car was just serviced, is cosmetically and mechanically sound and ready to go. This is a fine example of the Iconic 993 porsche C4, bid with confidence. Please feel free to call at or email with any question you may have.

Of course, 100K miles is higher on a 993 than most we are used to seeing, but when maintained properly these are robust cars so that shouldn’t scare us away too much. It does, however, help account for the seemingly lower price. It is that level of maintenance that will determine how much interest buyers should have in this 993. It is said to be well documented. We aren’t provided proof of that documentation so further inquiries will have to be made in that regard, but the general condition of this 993 looks good and it presents well inside and out. That’s always nice to see and is a good first step. If the documentation checks out, then this could make for a nice driver-quality 993 at what I think is a fairly reasonable price. We don’t see many such cars, but with the air-cooled market not quite what it once seemed, we can hope we see more and more of them.

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

To whale tail or not to whale tail? That is the question. Perhaps this 911 will further the divergence in the conversation. Of course, on the 964 a whale tail is a much more rare thing. One of the engineering changes that debuted with the 964 was the electronically activated rear spoiler that raised to provide better aerodynamics at speed. The intent was a best-of-both-worlds design: the purity of the 911’s shape remained intact, but stability at higher speeds could be improved as well. There were some exceptions: the RS America did away with the fancy electronic spoiler in favor of a whale tail and, of course, the 911 Turbo continued to showcase a tail similar in design to the original tea tray of the 930. The owner of this 964 has chosen to add the tail to this Silver 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe.

1991 Porche 911 Carrera C4. Adult owned, Garage Kept, and Covered. 99% Original. I added the Whales tail, a new radio, new brakes, new tires, Wheels have new Powder coating, A/C is serviced yearly, Nerw front windshield, Paint is a 9.6/10. Everything works on the car. The engine is original, but is in great condition. I have my eye on a new toy, so had to pick one to let go of. Please call with any Questions.

While the overall appearance isn’t quite as great as the whale-tail equipped Widebody Carrera 4 I featured previously, this is a pretty good looking 964. With the whale tail and the Cup wheels this Carrera 4 looks an awful lot like a RS America. For me, that’s not a bad thing as I’m a big fan of the look of the RS America. For those who would prefer to return the car to its original, non-whale-tail, appearance the seller makes no mention of the availability of the original rear, but perhaps it will be available. All in all this appears to be a pretty nice Carrera 4. The mileage is reasonable and everything looks in good shape. Priced just below $50K, the asking price isn’t too bad either, though I think coming down a few thousand would make everyone a little happier.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

Second 964 in a row for me and this one is a little bit more unique. Given my discussion yesterday of the relative aesthetic merits of the 964 Coupe vs Targa it also makes for a fitting contrast. Like the Carmine Red 930 I featured last week, this 964 comes in one of the red variants that Porsche generally made available. Velvet Red Metallic is not nearly as subtle a contrast as Carmine Red, but it makes for a very nice color that is not quite Burgundy but also not one of the bright reds like Guards Red. The seller states that it’s paint to sample, but that isn’t correct. Regardless, it’s rare and looks great here contrasted with the Tan interior. This 964 comes from the first year of the model’s production, meaning not only was it the all new 911 design, but was also the first-year Carrera 4 that Porsche chose for the 964 debut. At a little under 100K miles it’s a sharp-looking 911.

In 1989 the Carrera 4 was the most technically sophisticated 911 ever to enter serious production. This C4 Runs, Drives, and Performs Flawlessly, and is a blast to drive.
Shifts into all 5 gears well, and pulls hard our of each shift. No Smoking or funny noises coming from the engine. This is a California Car so no rust, corrosion anywhere. Does have typical 964 oil leaks, nothing major.

Paint and Exterior are in beautiful condition.

With the use of the new stout platform, a redesigned suspension and the marriage of four-wheel drive coupled to the new 3.6-liter flat six, Porsche had achieved the ultimate 911, the “C4”.
This new technology is a direct result of the 959 development program. The new C4 was introduced mid-year 1989 during the tail end of the production for the last of the traditional 911’s.

This C4 is nicely optioned starting with its rare “Velvet Red” metallic exterior paint, tan leather interior, power seats and electric sunroof. and some tasteful mods.

This makes for a rare and uncommon color combination that would most certainly garner some attention and lots of talk at the next PCA Cars and Coffee meet.

Given the modifications it’s probably safe to assume this Carrera 4 has seen some track time. From the roll bar, to the driver’s seat, to the air ducts replacing the front lenses, the feel here is of a mild track car. It’s a 911 so that should not really surprise us nor concern us, but it should make prospective buyers take a more thorough look through whatever records exist so as to get a handle on servicing and other details. Everything looks in really nice shape though. I’d guess it’s been repainted given that all of its stickers are missing from the engine bay so we might inquire as to the reason for that. Of some concern would be the statement about small oil leaks. Typical or not, those could hint at larger service bills to come.

Of the modifications, the cosmetic items (other than original wheels) are said to be included. Presumably that includes the original sport seat for the driver’s side, which I’d guess would be of greatest import to potential buyers. This 964 probably won’t attract too much notice from collectors so I don’t think this is a matter of being able to return the car to its original condition. Rather, it might just be a matter of comfort and symmetry. Altogether the asking price isn’t all that bad assuming a PPI reveals no major issues. For an attractive 964 Coupe in a rare color I’d guess there should be plenty of interest here.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with 10,604 Miles

Somewhat needless to say, but we don’t see a 964 like this very often at all. Obviously ultra-low-mileage 911s are rare. However, we do come across them with some regularity and, of course, among the limited-production models very low miles is almost the norm. But a fairly standard 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe? I haven’t seen it. I almost wonder how a 964 like this came about. I suspect it was bought with the intention of being part of a collection as the first Carrera 4 model Porsche produced. As a piece of Porsche engineering history it certainly will hold appeal in that regard and here it sits now in original condition as a time capsule from that era. For the very thorough collector it should make for a nice addition.

With a car like this, our interest lies in current condition and its level of documentation. The condition looks great. The paint is in fine shape with no apparent scrapes, nicks, or blemishes visible in the pictures. The interior shows at a similar level. The leather is crisp throughout showing little wear. The same can be said of the engine bay as it looks remarkably clean. For a 911 of this mileage its condition looks as good as we’d hope. It also comes with a good deal of documentation ranging from the original sales material to a variety of service receipts. We can’t tell here if it’s comprehensive, but most everything appears present.

That leaves us with price. The 964 market always has lagged behind the 993, but for certain limited-production vehicles we have seen significant gains at times. Granted, in some cases those values have come back down, but that’s been a feature of the whole air-cooled 911 line. It will be very interesting to see where bidding ultimately takes this one, but with quite a few days left we are already up to $70,300. This will be one to have your eye on.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

This post is intended to serve in part to provide some perspective on the Baltic Blue Carrera 2 posted earlier this week. That car had some questions regarding paintwork, current maintenance and modifications. It also had a ton of miles. The asking price didn’t seem to be taking those factors much into account, which is where the comparison with this 964 may be useful.

This one is also Baltic Blue Metallic, though this time it is a 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe rather than a Carrera 2 Coupe. The mileage is much lower, in fact it’s quite reasonable given its age, and the condition appears to raise far fewer questions. The asking price is indeed higher, but perhaps not by as much as we’d expect given their differences. Comparing a Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 isn’t quite the perfect comparison, but there are enough similarities that we can at least make use of it.

The Carrera 2 appeared to have a substantial amount of early record-keeping, but we could be less sure of its recent care. This one may be the reverse as there are said to be a good deal of records for recent work, but we are told little about its early life. We do get a picture of the maintenance log showing some of its early servicing, but how robust that log will be remains to be seen. Still I think there are far fewer questions and I also don’t think there are less questions about this Carrera 4’s originality.

The condition of this 964 does work in its favor as it looks to have been well cared for both inside and out. I’m not generally a huge fan of a Linen interior on a 911, but the exception almost always comes when the exterior has been one of these lighter shades of blue. It has an oceanic feel that is quite inviting. There is definitely some wear noticeable, especially to the driver’s side seat bolsters, but for the most part it’s clean and in good shape. The price probably is a little high all things considered, but I think it makes a workable starting point.

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

There isn’t very much time remaining on this ad, but since it isn’t an auction and doesn’t appear to be going anywhere too quickly that shouldn’t be overly problematic. I expect it will be relisted. It is, however, an interesting 997 in its color combination and likely its selling price, which should be very much on the reasonable end. The mileage is high, sitting at 110,235, but if its maintenance has been good, then I would see no reason why it couldn’t continue to provide enjoyable motoring in a pretty sophisticated package. Here we have a Carmona Red Metallic 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe, located in Washington, with Terracotta leather interior and desirable 6-speed manual transmission.

2006 Porsche Carrera 4 Coupe in Carmon Red Metallic with Black and Terracotta Interior. 3.6L/325hp 6-Cylinder Engine. 6-Speed Manual Trans. All-Wheel Drive (AWD). Original MSRP was $87,750 with Factory options for this scintillating C4 Coupe including; Bi-Color Interior in Black/Terracotta, Carmon Red Metallic Paint Color, Supple Leather Front and Rear, Power Seat Package, Heated Front Seats, Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package, Self-Dimming Mirrors, TPMS, Fire Extinguisher, 5mm Wheel Spacers, Black Mats with ‘Porsche’ lettering. This is a great looking Carrera 4 that has been well maintained and properly serviced. Runs and drives excellent and shows in outstanding condition throughout – much finer than the mileage might indicate.

The Carrera 4 has earned a cult-like following and they are highly desirable 911’s, as they combine the best parts of the 911 range. Starting with the widebody that is shared with the turbo model, the Carrera 4 adds standard all wheel drive, sport tuned suspension, and the precision braking system from the Turbo, creating a menacing looking car that is equally happy being briskly driven on a twisty backroad as it is tackling the dreary winter evenings.

This example also has the enthusiast required manual transmission, making it the perfect everyday sports car for the PNW.

The cockpit of this Porsche maintains basic design themes from the past but boasts cleaner layouts and enhanced functionality, particularly the classic instrument cluster and an ignition lock to the left of the steering wheel. Though the cabin has a function-oriented layout, upscale materials on the doors and dashboard, and remarkable craftsmanship and attention to detail throughout welcomes both driver and passenger. The heated power seats in front, wrapped in optional supple leather, are firmly bolstered and deeply contoured, offering miles of comfortable driving. The Porsche 911 Carrera is considered as one of the most iconic models in the history of the industry. There aren’t many sports cars that have been around as long as the 911, and none that have stayed as true to the original’s formula. At the same time, Porsche has managed to transform the 911 into a modern sports car with the performance and amenities buyers expect. It’s an icon of the sports car world.

This color combination almost tells two different stories. The burgundy-hued exterior brings with it some elegance, but little in the way of flash. It’s a very pretty shade of red, but like most of the darker hues it allows one to blend in to a degree. The Terracotta interior, however, suggests no such intention of blending in with the crowd. While certainly not as bright as Can-can Red, the contrast with the exterior is somewhat pronounced. I think it makes for an attractive combination and it looks to have been well cared for during its life.

Given that it has more than 100K miles a PPI would be a good idea. While the seller is correct that the Carrera 4 came with a wider rear, I’m not sure the sport suspension or Turbo brakes were standard. That seems to be a confusion with the 4S. I believe the suspension would have been optional and perhaps it was selected (though the listed options in the ad do not mention this), but given that this Carrera 4 lacks red calipers we can probably assume these aren’t the Turbo brakes. Those looking for a Carrera 4 probably will be aware of these differences, but it is the sort of thing that tells us we should look at little closer at whatever records are available. At the end of the day, this higher-mileage 911 comes in at a pretty nice price and surely offers a heck of a lot of performance for that price. That it comes in an interesting color combination and with a 6-speed manual just makes everything that much sweeter.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Targa

I have featured a 964 Carrera 4 previously – quite frequently actually. As the first model Porsche released for its substantial redesign of the 911, the Carrera 4 is a not uncommon visitor for us. I have also frequently featured the 964 Targa, because I like Targas and it’s interesting to keep an eye on what was the last of the original Targa design prior to its change for the 993. However, I’m not sure I have ever featured the model that combines the two: a 964 Carrera 4 Targa. That seems strange to me if it is indeed the case. Of the standard Carreras the Targa was produced in far fewer numbers relative to the Coupe and Cabriolet, and with only 1,329 total the Carrera 4 Targa saw the lowest production numbers of the bunch. So some of it is strictly a numbers game. But I still find it strange. Regardless, let’s take a look at one of these rare visitors to our pages with this Black 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Targa, located in New York, with 81,041 miles on it.

Given its age and mileage this Targa presents remarkably well. The black paint looks in fine shape with no notable blemishes and the interior looks clean and with little wear to the carpets or seating. It’s stated that all paint and interior materials are original (other than the radio, which clearly is not original) and that it’s well documented. It isn’t entirely clear to me whether the Cup wheels were originally ordered with the car or whether they are originals that have been added. In either case, they make for a fantastic addition as any 964 wears them well. Everything else appears to be in order.

Since we don’t see them often I’m less sure of what sort of price we can expect. Carrera 4s tend to do well when in good shape and we even see the 964 Targa show nice value too given that there weren’t a lot of them. Higher values do tend to come with the ’94 model year though so I’m not sure whether we’ll see similar increases with this 1990. All in all this is a nice example and nice 964s have been showing better value. All of that should tell us that we can expect its current bid of $30K to increase and we’ll have to see just how high it might go.

Tuner Tuesday: 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Koenig Specials Supercharged

The ’70s and ’80s certainly possessed their own sense of style and few things make that more clear than when we look at tuners who were popular during those eras. Not all were so crazy. Looking at a few RUF models we can see that they were content to retain the general style of Porsche themselves, though in fairness a 930 isn’t exactly a shrinking violet. But here our attention will be on the other tuners; the tuners who delighted in bringing their own sense of audacity to the automobile market. Koenig Specials is one such tuner and though they’ve been around for four decades now I think most of us would be familiar with them from their earlier years when they produced complete packages to transform both the appearance and the performance of many cars. On these pages we’re most familiar with them for their work with Mercedes-Benz, but there are a few rare Porsches floating around as well. One of those is the one we see here: a Koenig Specials modified 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with a mere 19K kilometers on it. It is said that only eight such examples were built, making this a very rare commodity on the 911 market.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

Our search constantly has us on the lookout for rare models, rare colors, and rare combinations of both. In the world of 911s that usually means something very expensive.

There is another type of search.

A search for the more frequently seen models, but still ones that seem to stand above the rest of the crowd. Since 911s are expensive full stop they’re not cheap, but for those shopping for one in the first place we’re at least delving into more reasonable territory. Sometimes we find subtle combinations of these factors, typically less common color combinations on otherwise common models with higher mileage that helps keeps prices down. That seems to be the case here. This Silver Metallic 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe fits the bill of a standard 911 that appears in nice shape given its age and mileage. However, step into the interior and we find Burgundy leather carpets and seating that we do not see often on the 964. We frequently come across a Burgundy interior in the 3.2 Carrera and perhaps it is this model year’s close proximity and overlap with those outgoing Carreras that made it possible for Burgundy to find its way into this early Carrera 4.
