When the 911 Type 964 was first brought to market, Porsche was keen to emphasise that, although it was patently still a 911, it was in fact 87% different from the outgoing model.
The new 911 design featured more integrated bumpers and a host of mechanical changes, most significant of which was the availability of four-wheel drive.
Displacement was raised to 3600cc, producing an impressive (even by today’s standards) 250hp, power steering and ABS brakes were now fitted as standard and the old torsion bar rear suspension was replaced with coil springs and shock absorbers.
Careful attention was also paid to aerodynamics with a reduced drag coefficient down to 0.32, and with virtually zero lift stability and road holding at high speeds was greatly improved.
Released toward the end of the Type 964’s brief lifecycle as Porsche endured a global recession, the extensively R&D’d and very rare M491 Option Widebody offered above and beyond all else: 4-wheel-drive as standard, magnesium D Design alloys, Tiptronic transmission, improved air conditioning, improved interior ergonomics with full leather equipment, airbags, improved brakes and suspension and of course, more horsepower.
The car offered is an incredibly rare, 1993 Porsche 911 Type 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet travelled just 52,000 kilometres, optioned in Amazon Green over Black leather trim with manual transmission and 1 of just 6 cars that arrived on our shores through Porsche Cars Australia.
In very original condition the bodywork retains a deep shine with characteristically Porsche tight shut lines and all of its correct features from the 17 inch alloys with colour centered crests, tear drop mirrors and finer details like the Bosch head lights and factory Sekurit glass.
The interior also looks stunning in its totally original Black leather, with all of the switch gear in fantastic condition, as well as the seat bolsters and original carpets, indicative of the miniscule 52,000 kilometres travelled.
The car has clearly lived a cosseted life with the original service book showing an impressive total Porsche service history and all tell-tale signs pointing to meticulous maintenance.
In accompaniment are the original log book and keys held within the leather Porsche wallet as well as modern receipts, denoting the last major service in 2016.
Representing fantastic value for money, especially when compared to its heavyweight brethren with such low production numbers this Australian delivered and excellently well prepared 911 Carrera Type 964 Widebody Cabriolet is one to own.
