The Project

This 1992 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 2 arrived into the Carrosserie workshop in October 2022 for a respray to the bumpers, bonnet, and mirrors.

27th October 2022: Work commences on the removal of the bonnet, front bumper and mirrors to begin the prep for respray.

When it launched in 1989, the 964 represented one of the biggest advances in Porsche history and the carmaker’s engineers estimated that 85% of it differed from its predecessor, the 911 Classic. With its improved aerodynamics, ABS brakes, integrated bumper, 3.6-litre 247bhp engine, redesigned suspension, automatic electric spoiler, and air conditioning system that worked, it was not hard for drivers to spot where the key changes had been made.

At first, the Porsche 964 was only available as the all-wheel drive Carrera 4, but a much lighter rear-wheel drive Carrera 2 arrived in 1990 – and the C2 soon became the biggest seller. Targa and Cabriolet versions of the C2 and C4 followed, along with 3.3 and 3.6 Turbo models and the highly desirable RS and rare Speedster.

Porsche 964 values have risen in recent years. All models are great to drive and boast classic styling, which partly explains why demand is growing and values are going up. A C2 or C4 will cost you somewhere between £25,000 and £60,000, but you are likely to need a six-figure budget for a good Turbo or any RS.

The good news is that as even the latest 964s are more than 20 years old (production stopped in 1994), any car that is still in working order is likely to be fundamentally sound. However, there are some potentially expensive problems that are known to occur on the 964, so it is a good idea to organise a Pre-Purchase Inspection at a Porsche specialist before handing over a large cheque to the seller.
