This accident free, 1990 Porsche 911 Targa was registered to the first owner in Virginia April 28, 1990 and it then sold to its next owner in California in 2015 where it remained until we purchased the vehicle. Upon going through our rigorous service and reconditing process the car has now benefitted from new oil cooler lines, new front sway bar end links, new rear inner control arm bushings, new rear brakes, a wheel alignment, new PCCM Porsche Classic Radio with AUX/USB/Bluetooth/Navigation, new front speakers and a professional detailing. We have various service records dating back to 1997 showing regular maintenance. The engine was rebuilt by Porsche of Arlington, Virginia in 2005 at 61,600miles (the current odometer now shows 96,700miles) installed were later model piston and cylinder assemblies as well as the camshaft, rocker arms, valves, and head studs that were replaced. A valve adjustment was performed in 2019.
The flat six 3.6L engine in the 911 is a joy to listen to and admire whether you are in or outside of the car. It produces 250bhp to its rear wheels and 229lb-ft of torque. In comparison to todays 911’s these may not impress on paper however the car weighs just under 3000lbs making it light and nimble, all while being planted as you take your favourite roads at an accelerated pace. The 964 Targa 2 was 220lb lighter than its C4 sibling and was more fun to drive as it was sportier and considered a true successor to the Carrera 3.2 of 1984. The 964 featured many creature comforts that had been lacking in earlier versions of the car including, power steering, dual front airbags, dual-mass flywheel, ABS, a retractable rear spoiler, and twin-spark ignition.
The interior is simple, refined, analog, and has everything where it needs to be without trying to be anything more then necessary. The AC blows cold, and you remain comfortable with or without the Targa roof. The installment of the Porsche Classic Radio modernizes the driving experience as you can make a call, navigate, play your own music, and charge your device – if you have a classic 911 already and are thinking about putting this in your own car, we highly recommend it as it looks sleek and performs incredibly well.
The exterior of this car turns heads and is admired by all ages, thumbs up and smiles are guaranteed. The removable Targa roof is easy to take off and put on and can be safely tucked in the hood at a moments notice. The Black on Tan colour combination is classic but also unique. The Black Targa roll bar is commonly seen in silver or black – in 2017 Porsche recognized that many of the 991 owners were wrapping their roll bars black so they decided to make it a factory option again which speaks to the nostalgia this car has.
The long run of the previous 911 meant the 964 needed a major update and Porsche delivered on that promise with 85% new components and virtually none of the predecessor’s architecture used. Save for the introduction of aerodynamic polyurethane bumpers and an automatically extending rear spoiler which replaced the “whale tail” found on the 911 throughout the 1980’s, externally, the 964 kept the same style as the classic 911. The 964 rode on a completely redesigned chassis with rear suspension switching from torsion bar to trailing arms with Porsche’s “Weissach” rear axle, which added self-steering elements to reduce the chance of oversteer.
