The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1993. It featured significant styling revisions over previous versions of the 911, most prominently the more integrated bumpers (fenders), although it was still obviously a 911. It was the first generation of 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission as well as the first generation to be offered with all wheel drive.
“Type” 964 (nine-sixty-four) or simply 964 (nine-six-four) is in fact the internal code name for the car; the vehicle was badged simply as Carrera 2 or Carrera 4. The official name for the model, as printed on the front of the Owner’s Manual, is “Porsche 911 Carrera 2” or “Porsche 911 Carrera 4”. The 964 name is now often used to distinguish this car from other generations of the Carrera, especially among Porsche enthusiasts (like me).
Mine is the 1991 Targa.
I can offer many a story why I believe this may well be the perfect Porsche – and, thus a dream come true (for me any way) in it’s own right.
Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
