The vehicle in detail

There may be nothing both as menacing and as visually appealing as a “triple black” Porsche 911 coupe, and this stunning 1994 Turbo 3.6 checks all the right boxes. Completed on October 15, 1993, this example was among 466 US-spec versions built on the 964 platform. Immortalized by the original Bad Boys film in 1995, an identical Black/Black/Black Turbo driven by Mike Lawrey (Will Smith) was the immediate bedroom wall poster car for a generation.

“R”-program Turbos were offered from August of 1993 until July of 1994, but were divided between the outgoing 964 and new 993. The 964-based M64/50 Turbo 3.6 ended production in January 1994. Its 3,600-cubic-centimeter air-cooled SOHC boxer six produced 355 horsepower at 5500 rpm, boosted by a single KKK turbocharger with intercooler and K-Jetronic fuel injection. Power was taken up by a G50/52 five-speed manual transaxle with a limited-slip differential.
According to its included window sticker, this Turbo 3.6 was factory-equipped with power steering, power-assisted ventilated four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, toe-correcting rear suspension, widened Turbo bodywork to accommodate the required larger wheels and tires, a rear spoiler, electric sunroof, a rear-window wiper, central locking and alarm system, automatic climate control with air conditioning, heated headlamp washers and outside mirrors, a 20-gallon fuel tank, and airbags. In addition, the purchaser specified an optional black full-leather interior, a set of four 18-inch Speedline modular alloy wheels with painted center caps and a set of Yokohama tires.
Sales and registration documents and a Carfax supplied with this car indicate it was first sold to Mr. Takugi Sugii of Fort Wayne, Indiana, who owned it for over eight years. On May 16, 2002, the car was sold to Vorderman Volkswagen of Fort Wayne having been driven 12,445 miles, after which it found a new long-term owner in Mr. James Bradley of Gaston, Indiana. Bradley kept the car for just over 13 years but drove it sparingly, accruing barely 1,350 additional miles. The turbocharger was rebuilt during his ownership. Well-known exotic dealer Marshall Goldman in Warrensville Heights, Ohio, purchased the car in August 2015. It was then sold to its next custodian in Westchester County, New York.
After taking possession in late 2015, and as a testament to his exacting standards, the new owner decided there was room for improvement in the car’s quality. Work soon commenced, with the goal of elevating this 911 Turbo 3.6 to a level above any other. The engine was completely serviced and all systems renewed by Porsche specialist Speedsport Tuning in Danbury, Connecticut at a cost in excess of $30,000. To bring this car to the pinnacle of mechanical capability, the decision was made to address everything at once, rather than handling smaller service items individually over time.
At the time of cataloguing, this handsome Turbo 3.6 had recorded just 15,276 miles from new, most of those by the first owner. It is supplied with a tool roll, air compressor, manuals with pouch, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, original window sticker, and a file of invoices and registration documents. After purchasing this Turbo in 2020 with 14,745 miles, the current owner used the car selectively but kept it fully serviced. Lastly, recent paint meter readings were all found to be in the consistent range for an original-paint example.
Porsche 964-based Turbo 3.6 coupes are rare, fast, and very collectable, especially in the Bad Boys color combination. When Will Smith’s Mike Lawrey returned to the wheel of a Porsche in the recent Bad Boys For Life film, it was a new 911 Carrera 4S—a capable car, to be sure, but one lacking the appealing menace of the original Triple-Black Turbo. This example presents an opportunity not to be missed.
