Lovers of the wide-body 911 had to wait a long time after the cessation of the 911 3.2 range before a Turbo-look Porsche with a naturally aspirated engine was offered. The spectacular 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet Turbo-look (named “America Roadster” for the US market), appeared in 1982. This independent model of the 964 series was built in model year 1982 and 1993. The line of the closed roof was finally in tandem with the body line and the chassis and braking system from the 964 Turbo 3.3 were utilised for its production.
The 964 range represented the first modernisation of the 911 and is, by most measures, the most technically advanced whist still retaining the raw, classic sports car look and feeling of the original air-cooled 911 series. Porsche claimed that 85% of the parts used in the new 964 range were new, with notable changes such as the M64 3.6 litre engine, coil springs, ABS braking, air bags, power steering, a retractable rear spoiler, and re-engineered heating and air conditioning systems. The 3.6 litre engine had an output of 250 bhp and gave the car a 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 5.5 seconds.
Our Carrera 2 Cabriolet Turbo-look was purchased new from Porsche Tokyo, Japan, by a Porsche collector in March 1992, and they kept up the dealer servicing up until 2019, when it was brought over to the UK. The car has benefitted from a recent full major Porsche specification service, brake fluid service, Dunlop tyres, new front brake discs and pads, underside clean, machine polish and detailing. A written 12-month comprehensive warranty is also included.
