Legendary Classics has just received this very nice 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 4. The car comes with an elaborate service history and the Porsche books and records. The car has around 189.800 kilometers on its air-cooled engine.
Originally the car was delivered in Germany were it remained during the first twenty years of its live. The car was then imported to Belgium by a Porsche collector that kept the car in his collection were it was meticulously maintained by Porsche specialists.
The Porsche 964 is the company's internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. The 964 is Porsche's internal code name for the 911 Carrera 2 and 911 Carrera 4 models, which were badged simply as Carrera 2 and Carrera 4. The term 964 is often used by automotive publications and Porsche enthusiasts to distinguish them from other generations of the Carrera.
The 964 series was designed by Benjamin Dimson through January 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It was also the first car to be offered with Porsche's Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as options.
The 964 was considered to be 85% new as compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2. The first 964s available in 1989 were all wheel drive equipped "Carrera 4" models; Porsche added the rear wheel drive Carrera 2 variant to the range in 1990. Both variants were available as a coupé, Targa or Cabriolet. The 964 Carrera was the last generation sold with the traditional removable Targa roof.
A new naturally aspirated engine called the M64 was used for 964 models, with a flat-6 displacement of 3.6 litres. Porsche substantially revised the suspension, replacing torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers. Other improvements that were added to the 964 model were power steering and ABS brakes; both were standard equipment for the 964.
The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush with the car for improved aerodynamics. A new electric rear spoiler raised at speeds above 50 mph (80 km/h) and lowered down flush with the rear engine lid at lower speeds. A revised interior featured standard dual airbags beginning in late 1989 for all North American production 1990 MY cars. A new automatic climate control system provided improved heating and cooling. Revised instrumentation housed a large set of warning lights that were tied into the car's central warning system, alerting the driver to a possible problem or malfunction.
The suspension was redesigned using coil springs instead of torsion bars, the first major engineering changes since the original 911. The front suspension used MacPherson struts, a system that has continued for all subsequent versions, but the rear suspension retained semi-trailing arms.
