The Porsche 964 was a beloved model for Porsche enthusiasts being the first 911 to modernize with features that had otherwise become commonplace, like power steering, air bags, and anti-lock brakes. Yet it still maintained its raw mechanics, and omitted the electric gadgetry and fluff that many sports cars of the time had adopted. But it was the end of the 964 era that boasted its greatest accomplishment, with the introduction of the 3.6 litre Turbo -the last of the single, large turbocharger engines and the Cr�me de la Cr�me. The 1994 3.6 Turbo is easily the best of the 964s and arguably the best of the Porsche 911 Air-Cooled Dynasty itself. True to the tradition of Porsche Innovation, the 3.6 Turbo presented a substantial advance in performance and handling, boasting the most power and torque of the 911s. Up until the 3.6, the 911 Turbo was a Beast, no doubt. But the 3.6 was one step closer to civilized - not quite tame, but with a few more manners. The previous models were known for their difficult to control bursts of power, making them a little less friendly for the everyday driver. Although the acceleration of the 3.6 seems barely legal, the outrageous thrust of this engine is more controllable, smooth, and predictable, and turns any man into a road-worthy racer.

Prepare yourself for a rush of speed at only 3500 rpm, with max speeds at 174 mph. It is a shame that due to their rapidly increasing value, these cars are barely driven and fully experienced. Still, a joy ride can be stolen here and there before she is tucked back into the garage - nobody has to know.
