1990 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 ***SOLD***

5. July, 2015

The new 964 version of the Porsche 911 that was launched in 1989 was seen as rather futuristic in its day due to the smooth integration of its body color bumpers and front bodywork with the body itself. But looking back, the 964 now fit neatly in Porsche history, leading up to the 993 models that bid farewell to a long legacy of air/oil cooled 911s. While the car looked suspiciously like it might be a mere reskin of the 930, 87% of the components were new or redesigned.  The flat six engine was pushed out to 3.6 liters and 250 hp with strong and steady torque. The four wheel drive Carrera 4 was the form in which it made its debut in 1989, and it is now mainly selected by connoisseurs for its traction and handling in challenging weather conditions. The 964 today appeals to Porsche enthusiasts for its somewhat more refined ride and handling due to a suspension redesign to coil over springs and shocks, and much improved cabin features including a full length center console and height adjustable leather seats. Anti lock brakes were standard on all models, as were duel front airbags. A dual mass flywheel and variable assist power steering added to the advances in refinement.  With a top speed of 163 mph and 0-60 in 5.5 seconds,Combining all of this, the 964 offered an overall driving experience thats a little more direct compared to the 993 that followed it.

Improved aerodynamics using knowledge gained from Le Mans winning 962 and technology from the 959, reduced the drag coefficient to 0.32, and with virtually zero lift greatly improved stability and road holding at high speed. A retractable rear spoiler automatically extends at 50mph and while increasing the downforce also doubles the volume of air intake for improved engine cooling. The spoiler automatically retracts at below 60 mph.

Total US production for 1990 964 coupes was 2191 and a total production of all m0dels for 964’s in 1990 was 4635.

This particular numbers matching 964 Carrera 4 is a low mileage Porsche that has had excellent servicing and care throughout its life. It has just undergone an engine rebuild/ re-seal and has also had the dual mass flywheel and clutch replaced. Many other maintenance and service items have been performed making this one of the most solid and well preserved 964’s available today.
