1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S 3.6

  • Chassis no. WP0AC2969RS480409

Sold for €901.600

Documents: Bill of Sale


Type 964. Est. 385 bhp, 3,600 cc DOHC turbocharged flat six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, five-speed manual transaxle, front and rear fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,272 mm

  • Offered from an exceptional Swiss Porsche collection
  • One of 17 964 Turbo S ‘Package’ cars
  • Arguably one of the rarest and most desirable 964-generation 911s
  • Just under 23,000 miles from new


Introduced in early 1990, the 964-generation 911 Turbo S was introduced with the 3.3-litre turbocharged engine from the previous 930-generation 911, as the new 3.6-litre Turbo engine was not quite ready yet. Finally introduced for the 1993 and 1994 model years, only 1,500 of these 3.6-litre cars, both Turbos and Turbo S’ were produced. These cars were also fitted with the uprated ‘Big Red’ brakes and Speedline wheels, and ride height was lowered by almost an inch.

While the vast majority of Turbo S’ were fitted with the ‘Flachbau’ nose as a no-cost option, the Turbo S could also be had with the traditional 964 nose as well. Seventy-six Flachbau cars were built, but only 17 of these non–flat-nose Turbos S’ would be built, dubbed ‘package’ cars. These cars were also fitted with the X88 option, which bumped up total output to at least 385 brake horsepower as well as an auxiliary oil cooler. This was a result of adding a larger turbocharger and increasing the boost, as well as fitting upgraded camshafts, cylinder heads, adjusted valve timing, and a ZF locking differential. Furthermore, the package cars boasted the X92 front lip spoiler, X93 rear spoiler, and the X99 optional engine air inlets.

This particular example looks truly menacing, finished in black on black, it has travelled just under 23,000 kilometres from new and still retains its original paint. Offered from a Swiss Porsche collection, the car was purchased by its current owner from the United States, where it had once belonged to a professional baseball player. It has shared garage space with a number of historically significant and rare Porsches, and it presents in wonderful condition both inside and out. As such, it remains ready for further road use and would be a welcome addition to the garage of any Porsche enthusiast.





Type 964. Moteur six-cylindres à plat avec turbocompresseur et injection Bosch K-Jetronic, 3 600 cm³, 2 ACT par banc, 385 ch env., transmission manuelle cinq rapports, boîte-pont, suspension avant et arrière indépendante, freins à disques sur les quatre roues. Empattement : 2 272 mm

• Provient d'une exceptionnelle collection Porsche en Suisse
• Une des 17 Porsche 964 Turbo S « Package »
• Assurément une des plus rares et des plus attirantes 911 de la génération 964
• Un peu moins de 23 000 km d’origine

Présentée au début de l’année 1990, la 911 Turbo S de la génération 964 a tout d’abord été équipée du moteur turbocompressé 3,3 litre de la précédente 911 de la génération 930, dans la mesure où le 3,6 litres Turbo n’était pas encore tout à fait prêt. Ce moteur était finalement proposé pour les millésimes 1993 et 1994, pendant lesquels seuls 1 500 exemplaires de Turbo et Turbo S ont été produits. Ces voitures étaient aussi équipées de plus gros freins à « étriers rouges » et de jantes Speedline, et la hauteur de caisse était abaissée de près de 1,5 cm.

Alors que la grande majorité des Turbo S étaient dotées du « Flachbau » (nez plat) proposé en option gratuite, ce modèle pouvait néanmoins être fourni avec la face avant traditionnelle de la 964. On compte 76 exemplaires de version « Flachbau », et seulement 17 Turbo S dotées du nez conventionnel, ces dernières constituant la série « Package ». Ces voitures étaient également équipées de l’option X88, avec un radiateur d’huile auxiliaire, et voyaient leur puissance passer à 385 ch, au moins. Cet accroissement de puissance résultait de l’installation d’un turbocompresseur plus important à la pression de suralimentation accrue, d’arbres à cames plus efficaces, de nouvelles culasses, de réglages de distribution modifiés. Un différentiel autobloquant ZF figurait aussi à l'équipement. En outre, l’équipement de cette série spéciale comprenait les nouveaux poiler avant X92 et aileron arrière X93, ainsi que les entrées d’air optionnelles X99.

Cet exemplaire a une allure particulièrement menaçante, avec sa couleur noire et son intérieur noir ; il a parcouru un peu moins de 23 000 km d'origine et se présente avec sa peinture d’origine. Proposée par une collection Porsche de Suisse, la voiture a été achetée par son propriétaire actuel aux États-Unis, où elle avait notamment appartenu à un joueur de baseball professionnel. Elle a partagé son garage avec nombre d’autres Porsche rares et marquantes et se présente dans un merveilleux état, aussi bien à l’intérieur qu’à l’extérieur. Telle qu’elle se trouve, elle se tient prête à prendre la route et constituera un intéressant complément dans le garage de tout passionné de Porsche.
