911 at 60 – 964


Porsche is not only celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, but also 60 years of its most iconic model: the 911. Despite the numerous iterations with new technological advancements, the silhouette of the 911 remains recognizable to this day and it continues to be the benchmark for sports cars.

The 964 was unveiled in July 1988, 25 years after the launch of the original 911. Its world premiere happened at the Paris Motor Show on September 28, 1988. Many were predicting that Porsche would end the 911 line, as at the time they were producing the 944 and developing new models such as the 968.


The 964 featured 88% new parts over its predecessor, the G-series model, such as the chassis, engines and drivetrain. All of these were wrapped in a modernised body, particularly the rear design with a new lamp panel and spoiler, as well as the side sills and bumpers. Unlike the G-series cars, which use torsion bar suspension, the 964 uses a semi-trailing arm with coil over springs at the rear.

As a result, the 964 is more comfortable and has better handling, while still maintaining simplicity in the chassis.


The 964 has everything a modern classic 911 should have – air-cooled, smaller dimensions, lower weight, and the looks. Therefore, the 964 strikes the perfect balance between old school and modern with features such as ABS and power steering which make sure driving is enjoyable with no compromises. 


The 964 was in production from 1989 until 1993, when it was replaced by the 993, the last air-cooled 911 model.


At BINGO, we have a few 911 models in our inventory, we introduce you to the two 964s that are currently available for negotiation, as well as one that has already found its new home.

1992 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 2 (Tiptronic)


The Porsche 911 Carrera 2 is the rear-wheel drive Carrera while the Carrera 4 is four-wheel drive. The Carrera 2 was introduced in 1990, a year after the Carrera 4 which was the first 964.


The Carrera 2 shares the same chassis, engine and gearbox as the Carrera 4, which is the 3.6-litre flat-six producing 250 hp. The 4-speed Tiptronic transmission, made its debut with the 964 and was jointly developed by ZF and Bosch. Tiptronic is an automatic transmission with a clutchless manual mode, allowing the driver to choose how they want to drive the 964. For starters, when selecting “D”, the 964 can accelerate smoothly, as it will start from 2nd gear. With the Tiptronic, the Carrera 2 can go from 0-100 km/h in 6.4 seconds with a top speed of 260 km/h. 


This 964 Carrera 2 was originally delivered to Japan, finished in the popular Rubystone Red, also known as “Ruby Star”. Both the interior and exterior of this low-mileage 964 are in great condition, making this a fantastic opportunity to own a desirable example of this increasingly popular 911 generation. 


1993 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 4 30th Anniversary (Jubilee)


In March 1993, Porsche celebrated the 30th anniversary of the 911 at the Geneva Motor Show, by releasing the Carrera 4 30th Anniversary Edition (Jubilee), or “Jubi” for short. Based on the 964 Carrera 4 under the Porsche internal code M096, this is essentially a Carrera 4 with the wide turbo body but without the wing.


Under the bonnet is a 3.6-litre flat-six engine producing at 250 hp and 310 Nm of torque, which sends the power to all four wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. The “Jubi” can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds.


Only 911 units were produced worldwide, for the 1993 and 1994 model years. Buyers had a limited choice of exterior colours (Viola, Polar Silver and Amethyst), making it highly sought-after for Porsche enthusiasts.


This particular example is chassis #334, finished in Polar Silver with 22,725km on the odometer. The car has been sold to a happy owner and found its new home.

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS N/GT


The Porsche 911 (964) Carrera RS N/GT (also known as the Sport or Clubsport) is a highly sought-after 911 model produced in the mid-1990s. The “N/GT” designation stands for “Nürburgring/GT”, which was a reference to the car’s racing pedigree and its success in endurance racing events such as the 24 Hours of Nürburgring. 

Based on the 911 Carrera RS, it was designed as a homologation model to comply with racing regulations, which include a lightweight body, improved suspension, and larger brakes. The interior was stripped down and featured Nomex racing seats and a roll cage for added safety. 

The N/GT is powered by a modified version of the 3.6-liter air-cooled M64/03 flat-six engine, producing up to 260 horsepower. It sends its power to the rear wheels via the G50 five-speed manual transmission, same as the regular RS. The N/GT also featured a long-range fuel tank, plumbed-in fire extinguisher, external battery cut-off, and a fire extinguisher.

Only 290 units were produced, accounting for just 12% of the production of the RS model. The rarity of the N/GT package makes it a highly desirable model among Porsche fans.


This particular example is chassis #499150, featuring in Grand Prix White (P5) finish, with 46,895km on the odometer.
