Porsche 964

December9

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.287520

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.

In any event, and, perhaps more importantly, I am listening to:  “Sex on Fire” by Kings of Leon, “Snow (Hey Oh)” by Red Hot Chili Peppers, and She’s Gonna Rise” by Citizen Cope.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

    Why isn’t the picture of a 964?

    That is, indeed, an 1991 964.

    Well… Was, actually.

    If you are a detailed sort of fellow, and value specifications, would you like for me to send over some information?

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
