In late 1989, the 911 underwent a major evolution with the introduction of the Type 964, with technologies from the 959 flagship model. It was launched as the Carrera 4, the "4" indicating four-wheel-drive, demonstrating the company's commitment to engineering. Drag coefficient was down to 0.32. A rear spoiler deployed at high speed, preserving the purity of design when the vehicle was at rest. The chassis was redesigned overall. Coil springs, ABS brakes and power steering made their debut. The engine was increased in size to 3,600 cc and was rated at 250 bhp. The rear-wheel-drive version, the Carrera 2, arrived a year later.
The vendor has owned this much cherished 911 for more than ten years. He purchased the vehicle in New Zealand, and prior to his purchase the recorded mileage was checked and certificated at 75,000 Kilometres. Since purchase the car has been garaged in a salt free environment (NZ & Spain), only returning to the UK each summer during the past 10 years (from Spain) for MOT & tax, and consequently the car is rust free. The car is RHD, the speedo is in MPH and car comes with a Full Service History and more. Resent work carried out includes a service, timing chain and tensioners inspected, new tyres, new battery, new front shock absorbers, and the air-con has been serviced and re-gassed. The hood is in very good condition and is manual with electric locking, the seat and mirror adjustment are also electric.
The vendor says that this car has been a real “Faithful”, only letting him down once due to a flat battery.
