CSC present for sale this immaculate low mileage, low owner 1992 UK Specification Porsche 964 Carrera 4 targa finished in very rare Turquoise metallic, complimented by the light grey leather interior.
The 964 generation Porsche 911 was launched with the Carrera 4 in 1989 and took over from the well-established 3.2 Carrera. Despite the classic appearance of the previous generation, the 964 model was substantially different beneath the skin and Porsche claimed that the 964 Carrera 4 was in fact 85% new. The Carrera 4 was the first all-wheel drive 911 though in standard driving conditions, the electronically controlled system sends only 31% of the drive torque to the front wheels giving the rear wheels the majority of 69%. The revised engine, code M64, features electronic fuel injection and has a displacement of 3.6 litres producing 250bhp.
The chassis and suspension features coil springs and shock absorbers which replaced the torsion bar set up of the previous 911, whilst Powers Steering and an ABS braking system were added as standard. The classic 911 bodywork was largely retained but features more integrated, smooth front and rear bumpers along with an electronically controlled rear spoiler which improves aerodynamics. Internally, the 964 remains largely classic 911 though improvements were made to the heating and ventilation system which is notoriously problematic and inefficient in the older generation.
Porsche first introduced the ‘targa’ model 911 in 1967 with the name used in celebration of Porsche’s victories in the famous Targa Florio road race. The concept introduced a removable roof panel whilst retaining a full structural ‘roll hoop’ to meet crash protection legislation in America, one of Porsche’s biggest export markets.
The original targa featured a fold down plastic rear screen offering a true open air experience, however this was replaced a year later with the wrap around rear glass window which would feature through the rest of the models history up until the 993 model was launched.
For the next few generations, the targa model became a sliding glass sunroof until in 2014 when the 991 model returned to the original style (all be it electrically operated). This re-ignited interest in the classic targa’s, a model which had been for years seen as the runt of the litter and which now has become a fashionable classic in its own right. An air cooled 911 with a roof panel which can be easily removed on a sunny day, what a great idea!
This 1992 964 targa model stands out from the crowed is gorgeous Turquoise Metallic, set off perfectly buy the light grey leather interior. The bodywork can only be described as immaculate with hardly a stone chip or blemish to be found. The car sits on classic D90 forged alloy wheels and retains its amber front indicators which so often get replaced with the later style or non OEM items.
The classic 911 interior is finished in stunning light grey leather with electrically adjustable seats which have barely a mark to show for their 26 years and 59,000 miles. All electrical items, windows, mirrors and sunroof all work as they should.
The front compartment is also in excellent condition with the fitted carpet set in un-blemished condition. The space-saver spare wheel has never been used and the original tool kit roll and tyre inflator are present and correct. At the rear, the engine bay is clean and tidy and looks well cared for, and the engine idles smoothly.
On the road the car drives really well. Steering, brakes and gearbox all feel tight and precise and sharp. The power delivery is smooth and progressive as you change up through the 5 speed gearbox to the sound of the fabulous flat six engine.
