The new 964-generation 911 Turbo, the first major revision to the Porsche 911 Turbo, first broke cover in 1991. It retained the 3.3-liter engine from the 930 Turbo, yet produced 20 additional horsepower. Characterized by a more docile and refined response, the new 964 did not please all Turbo customers, who were demanding more power and a sharper acceleration.
Looking to keep its customers happy, Porsche presented a new 3.6-liter Turbo in 1993, which boasted a new flat-six engine based on that fitted to the new 911 Carrera 4 with 360 bhp on tap. The 3.3-liter 964 Turbo would only remain in production for the 1991 and 1992 model years, while the 3.6-liter 964 Turbo was produced for the 1993 and 1994 model years. For this later model, only 1,437 examples were produced, compared to 3,660 3.3-liter 964 Turbos, making the 3.6-liter model much rarer and more desirable than its predecessors.
Finished in paint-to-sample Titanium Metallic over supple black leather with contrasting light grey carpets, this 3.6-liter 911 Turbo was built with a handful of desirable options, such as 18-in. polished wheels including wheel caps with the Porsche crest, center console in leather, a driver’s side heated seat, and a sunroof. Presently owned by a Porsche collector based in Alberta, the car has just over 38,000 miles showing on its odometer. It is accompanied by its original books, including the original service booklet, tool kit, air compressor, and a handful of previous service records.
Lauded by the automotive press when it was announced, Car & Driver magazine commented that the new 3.6-liter 911 Turbo was not only more powerful and easier to drive, but also “more predictable to drive aggressively than any recent 911 Turbo. One no longer needs to have graduated from the Hans Stuck opposite-lock academy to explore the full potential of this car’s awesome power.”
This stunning example would surely be no exception to the rule and is ready to drive and enjoy, quickly!
