Here we have another stunning example of the Porsche 911 Carrera 2; this time dressed in blue, taking the form of a convertible and first registered in 1991. “Upon its arrival in the twentieth-century car world, the Porsche 911 964 stayed true to the timeless form of the classic 911, while offering some all-important changes which set it apart completely. Now known as its internal code name, 964, this vehicle was considered to be 85% new in comparison to its predecessor. It included new ABD brakes, improved aerodynamics thanks to the integrated bumpers, the power of a 3.6 litre 247 bhp engine, redesigned suspension, automatic electric spoiler and fully-functioning air-conditioning! Unlike its Carrera 4 counterpart, the Carrera 2 offered rear-wheel drive, promising the sporty, exhilarating, racing-car feel that many expected from Porsche. With all of the modern extras and rear-wheel drive, it is unsurprising that the Carrera 2 was soon the biggest seller.”
This example has lots of history, with a folder full of previous receipts, MOT certificates, TAX Discs, purchase invoices and even logbooks from previous owners. The following services can be accounted for: 1995, 1999, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 20012, 2015 and 2017. An engine rebuild of the vehicle was undertaken by Porsche in November 1999 at 66790 miles including piston rings, all seals and gaskets to cylinder head camcarriers and associated parts. 2005 saw a transmission rebuild and paint anti-corrosion. More recently, a new exhaust has been fitted equipped with catalytic bypass silencer and rear silencer bypass in 2007. This alongside the K&N panel filer makes for a more raucous noise without losing the sound of the beating heart. Following this, the Porsche has been fitted with a power chip for extra performance, and was power tested in 2009 on a dynamometer and found to produce 262Hp. The convertible roof is in fully working order, with no rips or tears and the personal plate as well as the winter and summer vehicle covers are included in the price for sale. Like a respected grandfather, the iconic growl of this Porsche 911 964 Carrera 2 puts the modern sports cars of today firmly back in their place. An extremely rare opportunity to own such a breath-taking piece of automotive history.
