Porsche 964 is the 911 incarnation that gracefully transformed this iconic sports car from analog old-school coupe to a modern road and track weapon. 964 is the very first modern 911 and the last emitting its classic look. That’s why we can`t resist sharing with you this sleek Porsche 964 art.
This is the last exterior design that Benjamin Dimson created for Porsche before his transition to Mercedes-Benz. The Filipino born designer is responsible for the shapes of 944 Turbo, 928 S4 and the iconic 959. But his excellent design work on Porsche 964 is the one that made a significant impact. Just think of RWB Porsches and you`ll have it.
The car debuted at the 1988 Paris Motor Show and went on sale in 1989. Although it was more than 70% different by the classic 911 it replaced, Porsche 964 keeps the specific engine location and its air-cooled technology. The M64 6-cylinder boxer engine has a displacement of 3.6 liters, good enough for 247 hp in its Carrera version. It relies on electronic fuel injection, twin spark ignition and cylinder heads and block made of aluminum. The very early examples of this engine were without head gaskets but soon this was changed due to some leaks. Porsche 964 advanced the classic 911 with its renewed suspension that relied on springs rather torsion bars. The car had power steering and ABS as standard as well as updated and more effective heating and AC systems. 964 was the first 911 with Tiptronic gearbox and the first with electronically controlled rear spoiler erecting automatically 80 km/h and folding back when speed drops below 10 km/h.
