The car was delivered to Clifton, New Jersey, in early May of 1990. It resided with its first owner for just over eleven years, covering 23,000 miles before being sold in late May of 2001 to its second owner, a Santa Rosa, California resident. The car was with the second owner from May of 2001 until July of 2015 and was only driven 7,000 miles that 14-year span. The car was then sold to its third and most recent owner in 2015, a Los Angeles-based enthusiast who enjoyed the car over the past five years, adding 12,000 miles. During the most recent ownership, the car was regularly serviced and maintained by Sublime Silverlake Independent Porsche Repair in Los Angeles.
Upon arrival to CPR Classic in May of 2021, the car was thoroughly inspected and serviced. The paint, which meters as original at 3.5-6.2 mils throughout, was lightly color sanded and corrected to remove minor imperfections that black paint sometimes tends to develop. Mechanically, this 964 is outstanding. The undercarriage is sanitary, showing no corrosion or damage, and retains its factory cosmoline coating. The car starts and runs wonderfully and drives even better. The suspension has been set up to European ride height for improved performance and a more desirable look. The only other modification to the car is a primary muffler bypass which adds a bit of grunt to the engine sound without being too loud or creating a drone. The factory muffler remains with the car and can be reinstalled at no charge if the new owner prefers. CPR can also return the vehicle to factory US ride height specifications if the next owner chooses.
The car was optioned from the factory as follows:
158 – Cassette-radio Blaupunkt Reno SQR 46
425 – Rear window wiper
494 – Amplifier
650 – Sun-moon-roof
Porsche 964s have become incredibly difficult to find on the open market in the past few years. High quality, low mileage examples are the hardest to find, with only a handful on offer at any given time. The Porsche 964 is the last 911 to retain the original aesthetic and silhouette, and as such, has become highly desirable today. With 964 prices on a notable rise, this example presents as an excellent opportunity to own an investment-grade Porsche that will undoubtedly continue to appreciate over the coming years but that you can also play with and enjoy worry-free. Don’t miss this outstanding Porsche 964.
