There are cars that are at the exact right time to collect; there
are cars you'll love to drive; and this 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera
convertible is both. With its original motor, Tiptronic
transmission, and plenty of modern convenience - from dual air bags
to A/C - this it's a great modern classic for all-around droptop
For many people, the 964 generation of the Porsche 911 is the ultimate evolution and expression of the original car. It takes the purity of the iconic design - with its race-inspired tall headlights and wraparound rear end - and gives it a bit of updated streamlining. This design looks particularly striking in Grand Prix white paint. The factory-correct color has benefitted from a professional respray that gives it a nice shine and still looks quite modern today. Part of the reason why the car can be so timeless is because of great care over its lifetime. That's why the panels are so straight, the doors still shut with precision authority, and the factory wheels look like they've never done parking lot combat.
We love the truly European color combo of the deep blue top against the white exterior paint. And so we are happy to see the leather interior match this theme, too. Stepping inside you sit in the comfortable and supportive bucket seat that was engineered to adjust to the perfect position - after all, this is a true driver's car. And Porsche's race-ready sensibilities also means the tachometer is directly in front of you. The rest of the instruments surround this in their own clearly marked pods to give you a comprehensive view of what's going on with the engine. While this is all meant to be a car focused for the road, it doesn't skip on comfortable features. This includes keyless entry, power locks, cruise control, dual airbag, AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice-cold air conditioning. And we know you're going to love the power windows and power folding roof. That way you don't even have to leave the driver's seat to take you from enclosed comfort to that perfect open air experience where you hear that distinctive motor make its symphony.
Lift the rear hatch to see arguably your favorite part of this car. The flat-six is the bedrock of Porsche's reputation, and this original 3.6-liter was one of the most advanced powerplants of its time. This is a performance fuel-injected motor that loves to intoxicate you with its unique air-cooled song. This is truly when Porsche threw their engineering prowess into the 911 - it's even the time when they introduced the deploying rear panel for better aerodynamics at speed. The 911 has always been famous for its sporty fully-independent suspension. The 964 built on top of that with a very modern setup that added performance, while also subtracting legendary oversteer. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, and the four-speed Tiptronic transmission that gives you the choice between an automatic for easy cruising or a shiftable gearbox when you want to take full control - now you've got a recipe for a terrific all-around driving machine.
Complete with owner's manual and some other valuable Porsche service manuals, this is a well-presented modern legend. It's the droptop you get to enjoy on the backroads today and watch the admiration appreciate over the years. Don't miss out on the perfect Porsche, call today!
