In August 1989, Porsche therefore presented the replacement for the 911 Carrera 3.2L, available only with all-wheel drive. Stupor among Porsche enthusiasts (which rhymes with purists)! Despite everything, the name Carrera 4 can give hope that there will be a 911 Carrera 2. Indeed, Porsche is betting big on its new generation of 911 and cannot deprive itself of its regular customers. The 2-wheel drive 911 (Carrera 2) was released the following year, shortly after the Carrera 4 went on sale. Aesthetically, both cars appear identical, except of course for the logo on the engine cover.
The gossipmongers and neophytes will even say that since the 3.2L, only the shields have evolved… In reality, you should not trust appearances, because the 911 type 964 is 85% new. On the technical sheet, the difference between C2 and C4 is a weight reduction of 35 kg – leading to a modification of the distribution more in line with the 911 spirit with 40% on the AV and 60% on the AR.
The flat 6 of the Carrera 2 is strictly identical to that of the Carrera 4. On this point, no jealousy. So let’s just remember that this 3.6 liter provides 250 hp at 6100 rpm and 310 Nm at 4800 rpm for an announced weight of 1350 kg. The cylinder head which was initially fixed directly to the engine block without a cylinder head gasket caused sealing problems resulting in oil leaks on many models until 91. An innovation inspired by competition, dual ignition was also brought its share of mishaps due to the fault of a poorly studied distributor.
The year 1992 represented a year full of movement for the 911 Carrera 2. To begin with, the engines were revised after having experienced numerous teething problems. The sealing is reinforced, the dual-mass flywheel changes supplier (LUK) and the dual ignition distributors cooled to avoid belt breakage.
Porsche will market the 964 in 3 body styles, coupe, convertible and Targa, all marketed in 2 or 4 wheel drive. There will only be 844 examples of the 964 Carrera 4 Targa produced.
This 964 C2 convertible was delivered new in Germany in January 1991 in this Indian Red configuration with gray leather interior. It arrived in France in April 1991 with 4,280 km, the date on which it was acquired by its first French owner, under registration 797 JMX 75.
The second owner acquired it in 1997, then registered 448 BMJ 92, and sold it in 2000 to the third French owner, now under registration 6288 VB 76. The latter will keep the car until 2018 when it will be acquired by the last French owner.
The history of the car is therefore clear, its mileage has been traced since the 1st day and ALL maintenance invoices are present, the history begins with the purchase invoice in France in April 1991 for an amount of 420,000 French Francs.
It is equipped with the following options: electric left sports seat, electric right sports seat, on-board computer and cruise control.
It is in perfect condition and has never been in an accident. The paint is mostly original with thicknesses of around 100 microns, only the front hood, left front wing and left door had a small veil of paint (maximum thickness 250 microns) in 2000 at Porsche.
The interior is in very good condition, the leathers are not damaged or marked. This car has always been very well maintained and works perfectly.
A major service will be made for sale.
