The Porsche 964 is the international name for the Porsche 911 that was produced between 1989 and 1994.
It’s known to be one of the most iconic Porsche’s the company has ever manufactured.
Benjamin Dimson designed the unique classic car up until 1986, later the style was revisited and updated over other 911 models.
You may wonder why the Porsche 911 is also known as the Porsche 964 and that’s because 964 is Porsche’s internal code name for the 911 Carrera 2 and 4 models.
Labelling a Porsche 964 in automotive publications made it quick and easy to distinguish from other generations of the Carrera.
The 964 was considered to be 85% new compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2.
In 1989 Porsche 964 were all wheel drive equipped Carrera 4 models, and in 1990 Porsche added rear wheel drive to the Carrera 2 variant.
Both variants were available as a coupe, Targa, or Cabriolet, and the 964 was the last generation to come with the traditional removable Targa roof.
Porsche revised the 964’s suspension replacing torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers.
Power steering and ABS brakes were also a first time for Porsche. The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush with the car for better aerodynamics.
