The Porsche 964 is the company's internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models; most prominently, more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation of 911 to be offered with Porsche's Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as options. Porsche chose to re-use the 3.3-litre engine from the 930 with several minor revisions resulting in the engine running smoother, being less prone to turbo lag, and more powerful with a total output of 320bhp at 5750rpm. The 964 Turbo is considered to be one of the prettiest 911s to date and certainly one of the most powerful. This stunning 3.3 Litre, 964 Turbo is an original 'C16' UK specification, right-hand drive example that was sold new on 8th August 1991 by AFN London, at a cost of over £75,000. Finished in its original and very rare colour of Tahoe Blue with Linen White leather interior, the car has been maintained meticulously since new. The history file on this particular 964 Turbo is one of the best we have seen. Bills and receipts can be found in the folder, along with an original service booklet boasting 20 stamps, original wallet, previous V5 documents, tax discs and lots of MoT certificates that substantiate a total mileage of 65,510 miles from new. A large number of those bills and receipts document huge expenditure with respected names such as AFN, Autofarm, Paragon and RPM. In addition, an engine rebuild was carried out by the current owner when he bought the car in 2009. Such were his high standards, the car wasn't actually finished until 2012. Externally, the car presents very well indeed with good shut lines and straight panels. The interior is original throughout and is presented in superb condition. The last service was carried out in January by Porsche specialist Perfect Touch. Overall, this 964 Turbo is a highly collectable example that has been carefully maintained and is ready to use and enjoy.
