1994 PORSCHE 911 (964) SPEEDSTER

Lot Description

KEY FACTS

  • One of only 936 examples of the 964 Speedster, which has undergone a full engine rebuild and boasts some custom modifications.
  • It is equipped with an air-cooled 247bhp 3.6-litre flat-six engine, driving the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.
  • Originally delivered within Germany, the car was exported to the UK and re-registered there in February 2000. It has been in the current ownership for nearly 16 years.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • While this car originally left the factory in dark Midnight Blue, it has been given a respray in the more eye-catching Maritime Blue hue. The inside of the engine bay and beneath the boot carpet remain in Midnight Blue.
  • This 964 Speedster was also specified with the more comfortable heated Sport seats rather than the standard RS bucket seats, an on-board computer, and air-conditioning.
  • The car also comes with an aftermarket Strosek hard-top roof.
  • It has also been fitted with an original ZF limited-slip differential, a dual-outlet Cargraphic exhaust, 18-inch split-trim alloy wheels and a 964 RS-style front splitter, brake cooling ducts, and rear bumper.
  • Its original owner’s manual, service book and toolkit will be included, along with a Certificate of Authenticity and a large folder of maintenance invoices.
  • The speedometer and odometer were changed from kilometres to miles at around 99,000 km, with the latter correctly adjusted to the correct equivalent figure, and the original gauges will be supplied.

SUMMARY

This Porsche 964 Speedster is a rare and sought-after 1990s open-top sports car, with a number of discerning modifications, and a vibrant resprayed exterior. With an engine rebuild around 5,000 miles ago, and benefiting from the option of a Strosek hard top to give the car coupe-like usability, this could be a great modern classic to enjoy on longer road trips, and would of course be a striking addition to any collection of performance cars.
