History

The Porsche 911 (964), graced the automotive scene from 1989 to 1994. Conceived by designer Benjamin Dimson and finalized in January 1986, this model showcased substantial aesthetic enhancements compared to its predecessors, notably in the form of seamlessly integrated bumpers. It marked a pivotal moment as the inaugural Porsche 911 to present options for both the Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Within the limited production run of 62,172 Porsche 964 models, the Targa variant stands out as a rarity, constituting less than 6%. Specifically, a mere 3,534 units were crafted in the earlier Carrera 2 guise, enhancing the exclusivity of this particular car. Originally dispatched to Japan, this vehicle, manufactured on September 20, 1990, later embarked on a journey back to its German roots in 2010, guided by the expertise of a specialist importer. In 2011, with a Porsche Approved Used Car Status and a mileage of 55,000 kilometers, the car changed hands and, over the subsequent 13 years, the discerning German owner lavished the vehicle with meticulous care, investing nearly €17,000 to uphold peak performance standards. Today, this exemplary Porsche 964 proudly boasts German historical registration, a testament to its enduring allure and the dedication bestowed upon it by its custodians.

Exterior

This Stuttgart masterpiece is the ideal winter convertible. Equipped with a heated rear screen, the Targa removed, and windows up, it creates a superb environment with a more than bearable noise level. The older Targa models were notorious for producing a considerable amount of noise, a fact acknowledged by any 911 enthusiast. The Targa truly embodies the spirit of its era, evident in its Grand Prix White hue (Porsche P5/908 Grandprixweiss). Mentionable imperfections include a minor split in the rear spoiler and a scratch on the rear plexi-glass; however, these do not diminish the overall condition and the well-matched white finish. Both are pictured below and unfortunately reflect the characteristics of this model. Additionally, there are a few minor paint imperfections, as noted, that should not detract from the charm of this lovely example still adorned with its original factory paint. The front features an aftermarket small spoiler, which arguably could and perhaps should have been matt-finish rather than glossy black. The rear window also has a tinted film applied, removable upon request.

Interior

While the interior specification may be considered modest in Porsche terms, it shouldn’t overshadow the noteworthy features, including 8-way electric heated seats for both driver and passenger, adding a touch of luxury. Electric windows, mirrors, and an onboard computer contribute to the overall enjoyment. The Cobalt Blue leather interior (code ARK) is in excellent condition, having undergone recent color treatment, revealing a subtle hint of a lilac hue. The corresponding carpet set is in superb condition. Enhancing the driving experience is a period Becker Mexico Type 2330 Radio/Cassette, seamlessly integrated with all codes and a remote control. With the fresh air Targa top removed (both keys available), this particular model boasts recently refreshed factory-fitted air conditioning (code 573), elevating comfort and style.

Engine & Transmission

The 964 models were equipped with a new naturally aspirated air-cooled engine known as the M64, featuring a flat-6 displacement of 3.6 liters. The 3.6-liter boxer engine achieves a top speed of 260 km/h, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 6 seconds, effortlessly reaching its quoted top speed – provided the German Autobahns allow! The Tiptronic version, though slightly slower, still impresses with a top speed of 255 km/h, yet these figures are hardly worth comparing to its manual counterpart. Generating 250ps / 184kW, our 4-speed Tiptronic model boasts an outstanding service history over the past dozen years since arriving in Germany. The last major inspection, completed at 64k kilometers and costing almost €7,000, ensures the engine’s continued optimal performance.

Wheels, Tyres & Brakes

Front 205/55 ZR16 an rear 225/50 ZR16 quality continental tyres adorn the unmarked 5-spoke alloy wheels, secured with locking wheel nuts. Braking capability is strong in accordance with a recent TÜV inspection valid until October 2025.
