This beautiful 911 comes in the very rare color of Zenith Blue Metallic, which makes this car an instant head turner for any air-cooled Porsche enthusiast. The hue of this blue is quite magnificent and it’s of no surprise that certain rare colors like this are considered to be a premium on these desirable classics.
The Grey Leather interior very nicely compliments the outer blue, and everything is fully stock, including the factory Blaupunkt radio. The condition of the interior is quite nice, with everything being neatly preserved.
The air-cooled 3.6L M64 flat-six is equipped with VarioRam induction and was factory rated at 272 horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque. Everything works mechanically in a synchronized manner and the car performs as it should.
The car comes with two pages of service stamps dating from 1995 (22k miles) - 2020 (105K miles). There is also a nice stack of service receipts, which start from 05/2001 all the way up to 06/2020, and also a great deal of documented service on the Carfax report. It is quite evident from this that this car has always been fully maintained and taken care of. Last documented oil/filter change (5w40 High Tech Synthetic) was done roughly 200 miles ago.
