1994 PORSCHE 911 (964) TURBO 3.6 X88 - OWNED BY JENSON BUTTON

KEY FACTS

  • A spectacular, one-off example of the thrilling 964 Turbo 3.6, boasting the factory-fitted X88 power package and with storied provenance.
  • Under the engine lid is the turbocharged 3.6-litre flat-six, which produces 380bhp with the ‘X88’ power package, driving the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential.
  • Specially ordered by the Sultan of Brunei, this unique 964-generation 911 Turbo was built in March 1994. Officially imported to the UK and re-registered in March 2003, it is now offered for sale on behalf of its current owner, 2009 Formula One World Champion, Jenson Button.
  • This 911 has the distinction of being the only ‘X88’ car finished in the gorgeous hue of Horizon Blue Metallic.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • As well as its exclusive Horizon Blue Metallic paintwork, this exceptional 964 Turbo was also uniquely specified with full Marine Blue leather upholstery, electrically adjustable comfort seats and a matching leather-trimmed airbag steering wheel.
  • Additional equipment includes an electric sliding sunroof, air conditioning, the headlight levelling system, a top-tinted windscreen, a rear windscreen wiper, and an onboard computer.
  • The car rides on the correct set of polished 18-inch split-rim Speedline alloy wheels.
  • This impressive modern classic will be accompanied by its original handbooks and service book, as well as a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a file of invoices detailing its past maintenance and all of its previous tax discs.

CONDITION

  • No known prior bodywork damage.
  • The Horizon Blue Metallic paintwork is believed to be fully original and is in excellent condition, with a few minor stone chips around the front, as well as some very small chips on the trailing edge of the driver’s door.
  • Inside, the Marine Blue leather upholstery is similarly well-preserved, with some light creases on the front seats and very minor wear in front of the driver’s electric seat controls. It looks every inch an original, low-mileage 911.
  • The interior trim, switches and buttons are also in great shape, and while there is a hairline crack on the plastic heater control panel this is commensurate with the car’s age.
  • There are no known electrical or mechanical faults with the vehicle, and there are no warning lights showing on the dashboard.
  • The car’s last MOT test was conducted on 4 November 2020 at 18,592 miles, resulting in a first-time pass without a single warning or advisory.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • The car is fresh from a full service carried out by classic car specialist Tudor & Black.
  • This 964 Turbo was previously tended to by independent Porsche specialist Tom Furguson in February 2014 at 18,008 miles, and by Strasse Leeds in September 2012 at 17,117 miles.

SUMMARY

While any 3.6-litre 964-generation Porsche 911 Turbo is a special car, this ‘X88’ power package-equipped supercar is an especially rare machine. Believed to be one of only a handful of cars with the ‘X88’ package and standard front end, it is also the sole example finished in the stunning hue of Horizon Blue Metallic. This original and visually arresting modern classic will make a fine centrepiece in any collection of landmark Porsches.
