The car currently retains all of its original paint and meters in factory specification throughout. However, CPR is slated to repaint the clamshell on the vehicle before delivery to the new owner due to several minor cracks that have formed on the shell throughout its lifetime.
This Speedster was the beloved centerpiece of a long-term owner’s small collection of sports cars and motorcycles. The car has spent many weekends taking the owner on vibrant drives through the Riverside wine country and out to Palomar Mountain. The car was treated as a member of the family for years and has been kept in outstanding original condition.
Following the service that we performed, this Speedster was road-tested and found to be in superb condition. The car starts effortlessly, whether cold or warm, shifts beautifully with great clutch feel and a solid linkage, and turns in confidently during spirited driving giving the user excellent feedback and a wonderfully engaging drive.
This Speedster was originally optioned from the factory as follows:
331 – Cassette-radio Becker Porsche CR-1 (Not currently installed, but remains with the car)
454 – Automatic speed control
573 – Air conditioner
900 – Accession of the car at the factory
The Porsche 964 Speedster was the last air-cooled production-based Speedster Porsche built. Enthusiasts of the style had to wait nearly two decades to see the next incarnation of the Speedster in the 997.2 generation. Only 936 Porsche 964 Speedsters were produced during the 1993 & 1994 model years, making these cars exceedingly rare and a great addition to any air-cooled collection.
The 964 generation Porsches have become unbelievably desirable over the past decade. They mark the last iteration of the 911 that retains the iconic original shape, and all models have become sought after in today’s market. The Speedster is the most notable option for someone looking to put the top down. If you are in the market for a special 964, and one that would fit in nicely at any air-cooled stable, this is a must-consider example.
