At the end of the 1970s, Porsche planned to stop the production of the 911 model and replace it with freshly released 928, which was characterised by state-of-the-art design, but at the same time was radically different from the 911. The 928, with its powerful transaxle V8 engine, belonged to the gran turismo class, rather than light and simple sports car class, which the 911 was the embodiment of. In the end, however, the company did not go for that risky step, and the sophisticated 928 did not become a market hit. The 1980s saw some further development of the 924/928 models, but customers mainly associated the brand with the legendary 911, which at the time was already stale and required some updates. The 964 saw the light of day in 1989 – and it did not bring a visual revolution. The iconic line of the car’s body remained the same, but the style became more synthetic thanks to the smooth edges, limited decoration and fully painted body parts. The new owners could, however, enjoy some rather significant changes in the drive train department. A traditional six-cylinder air-cooled boxer remained at the heart of the vehicle, but its displacement was increased to 3.6 litres. All-wheel drive was also introduced as a response to allegations about the difficult handling of the car, which was known for oversteering during driving. The 964 was available as a standard coupé, targa and a convertible. The Turbo variant received a separate codename – 965. Porsche also released a number of limited editions, including Jubilee for the 30th anniversary of production, the light Carrera RS and the exciting Speedster.
This Porsche 964 came from the United States It was brought to Poland as an accident-free vehicle and underwent a thorough restoration. The bodywork was repainted according to the factory specification, and the interior was renewed using the highest quality materials used by Porsche (Hans Rienke). The engine and transmission have been thoroughly inspected and all the required repairs were carried out. The brake system and suspension have been fully regenerated. The car has not yet been registered in Poland, but is ready for regular use. The black convertible with manual transmission is a great addition to any collection, it will also be perfect as the first classic Porsche, which will serve as a spectacular leisure car.
