The 964 was produced between 1989 and 1994 and is a standout car for its time which is possibly even more sought-after today. It has a sleek, modern look that is still recognisable and unique, which made it a very popular donor car for people choosing to build a backdated, or ‘resto-mod’ 911. The fact that so many 964s were used as the base for a ‘resto-mod’ build, means that very few un-modified examples remain, especially in rear wheel drive Carrera 2 guise.

This Carrera 2 cabriolet has been with our vendor for 15 years and looks excellent in its lesser seen special order colour of Velvet Red Metallic. The car is fitted with the all important manual gearbox, making this a very desirable car. The option code sticker is still present under the bonnet, showing option ‘220 – locking differential’, ‘383 & 387 – Sport seats’, ‘494 – Two rear shelf speakers’, ‘567 top tint windscreen’, ‘690 CD Player’. The car was originally supplied to Jersey and was brought over to the British mainland in 1993, with the V5C showing four keepers in total. Our vendor has owned the car since 2009 and has been maintained particularly well since, almost exclusively with Parr Porsche specialists. The bills in the file total over £40,000, with the standout being a bill for over £9,000 for a top end engine overhaul in September 2020, just a couple of thousand miles ago. There really are too many invoices to detail, but the car has been seen by Parr mainly on an annual basis, bar a few exceptions, during our vendor’s ownership and it has always been kept in fine fettle. The cup alloy wheels are in good order and are shod in barely used Michelin Pilot Sport four tyres.

Cosmetically the car presents well, there are a few usual age related marks, but everything is commensurate with its nearly 35 years of use and only 63,000 miles. The drivers seat bolster has worn, quite common due to how pronounced they are, but it could be easily rectified by the new owner. Overall, the interior presents well and has room for some improvements to bring the car up to the best standards. This is an excellent example of a manual Carrera 2, which is the one to have and is presented to auction with a fantastic history file, MoT test certificate valid until 4th December 2024 and a V5C registration document.
