Perfectly-presented in the ever-popular combination of Guards Red bodywork and full Black leather trim and hood, this very attractive four-wheel drive 964 Series Cabriolet was supplied new by Five Oaks Garage Ltd (official Porsche Centre for the Channel Islands) to a Mr James Hardcastle. Three more keepers have ensued, yet the Porsche's mileage currently stands at just 25,500 miles. This figure is fully supported by the service history that comprises 14 stamps by a combination of main dealers and marque specialists. The car's comprehensive specification includes electric sports seats, top tinted windscreen and a CD/radio with rear-mounted speakers. The vendor has no hesitation in grading the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, 3.6-litre engine and five-speed manual gearbox as all being in 'excellent' order, and is offering the Cabriolet complete with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, full set of owners books, two sets of keys and an MOT valid into May next year. The perfect acquisition in readiness for Summer 2017.
Penned by Benjamin Dimson, the 964 was manufactured between 1989 and 1994, when it was supplanted by the last of the air-cooled 911s, the 993. Its more integrated bumpers and other styling updates gave the newcomer a fresh appearance and it was considered by Porsche to be 85 percent new compared to the outgoing 3.2 model. It was also the first 911 to be offered with the option of Tiptronic automatic transmission, four-wheel drive, ABS brakes and power steering though, as before, there was the choice of Coupe, Targa or Cabriolet guises. The powerplant was a new naturally aspirated flat-six unit of 3.6-ltre displacement, the output of which was 248bhp at 6,100rpm. Autocar's performance figures for the manual gearbox Coupe were 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 158mph. The total number of 964s produced was 53,180, of which 4,802 were Carrera 4 Cabriolets.
