Highlights

  • Leather and Fabric Interior
  • 5-Speed Manual
  • Largely Original Car

Baltic Blue Over Blue Leather and Fabric Interior, 5-Speed Manual Equipped 964, Largely Original Car From the First Year of 964 Production.

This 1989 Carrera 4 is from the first year of production for the 964 and is finished in Baltic Blue Metallic over a blue leather and cloth interior. Under the care of 4 owners from new, this Carrera 4 shows 83,987 km at the time of cataloging and is in excellent overall condition. This car is fitted with a 16” set of Porsche Design-90 wheels and looks great sitting at stock European ride height. One of the many firsts on the 964 was the now commonplace electronic rear spoiler, which raises and lowers based on speed or at the push of a button in the cabin. From the factory, this example was fitted with few options, making it more desirable among collectors today, thanks to its lighter weight and lack of complexity. One of the few things on the specifications sheet is a rear window wiper, which is extremely useful- especially if you plan to take advantage of the all-weather traction afforded by the all-wheel drive system.

The vehicle in detail

The interior of this Carrea is in beautiful condition and remains largely original throughout. The seats are wrapped in deep blue leather, but the centers are fitted with an elegant and comfortable Porsche branded cloth. As this is a first-year car, it was produced prior to the requirement for a driver airbag, meaning that it retains the 4-spoke steering wheel from the outgoing 3.2 Carrera, which both looks better and feels much nicer in the hands than the later unit. A modern Kenwood head unit has been installed which offers USB and AUX connection as well as a CD Player. In this car, air conditioning was fitted. The 964 was the first 911, and the A/C on an air-cooled 911 actually felt like it did something, offering plenty of cooling even on hot summer days.

Sitting behind the passengers is a 3.6 liter naturally aspirated flat 6, rated at 247 horsepower and 228 lb-ft of torque. Although that doesn’t sound like much in modern terms, it was enough to propel the 964 from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds and on to a top speed in excess of 160 mph. This is then run through a 5-speed manual transaxle with power sent to all four wheels. This was the first Porsche outside of the 959 hypercar to be fitted with all-wheel drive, which made the car exceptionally surefooted in any weather but still gave a classic sports car experience thanks to the 31/69 front/rear power split. One of the largest changes on the 964 was the introduction of coil springs instead of the torsion bars that were fitted to all previous 911s. Using MacPherson struts up front and semi-trailing arms in the rear, the 964 offered more tunability and far more predictable handling at the limit.

If you are in the market for a classic car that you can also drive daily, a 964 Carrera 4 checks essentially every box. A great driving car that is comfortable and convenient to use, with the added practicality of all-wheel drive, means that you can enjoy your fun car year-round. This example, presented in a fantastic color scheme and so well kept, will provide years of enjoyment for whoever is fortunate enough to park it in their garage.

When Porsche debuted the 964 in 1989, it was arguably the largest step forward for the 911 since it first went on sale 25 years prior. It marked a series of firsts for the model, such as the introduction of the Tiptronic automatic gearbox and an all-wheel drive system available on the Carrera 4. Porsche claimed the 964 to be 85% new compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2, and is the first 911 with integrated plastic bumpers, rather than the accordion-style impact bumpers, which had been commonplace since 1974. When the 964 first went on sale to the public in 1989, it was only offered in Carrera 4 guise, with the rear-wheel drive Carrera 2 becoming available the following year. Although the 964 was looked down upon for many years as sort of an undesirable middle ground between classic and modern 911s, over the last 10 years, people have done a 180 on this opinion. It is now widely acknowledged that the 964 sits in the perfect sweet spot, offering the driver involvement of a classic 911 with many of the creature comforts and reliability people look for in more modern classics.
