A mere 1,436 examples of the 964 Turbo 3.6 were ever produced.
Over the years, Porsche has produced some truly special motorcars. The 918 Spyder comes to mind, as does the Carrera GT, and 959. All represent the very pinnacle of Porsche in their respective eras and, due to their rarity, are highly collectible. You couldn't exactly describe the 911 as rare, but there are some exceptions to the rule. Take this 1994 964 Turbo 3.6 as an example.
Just 1,436 examples rolled down the production line with the desirable M64 flat-six. Made for just two model years (1993 and 1994), this enhanced variant sends 360 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels - via a five-speed manual gearbox - making it an incredibly quick, thrilling, and tricky car to drive. Auction house Gooding & Company is offering this example for sale and estimates the German unicorn will sell for between $350,000 and $400,000.
Sold new to the United States, this Midnight Metallic Blue 911 Turbo has lived a comfortable life under the care of its four respective owners. There aren't many miles under the polished five-spoke wheels; the 964 underwent a 30,000-mile service back in 2015 and has barely been driven since then if the odometer is anything to go by. It currently shows a recorded 30,883 miles.
The original owner was rather generous with the option-ticking and specified the'94 911 Turbo with 18-inch wheels, a power-operated sunroof, Yokohama tires, a rear bench, and Classic Grey upholstery. The seats have been trimmed in supple leather, according to the vehicle's Certificate of Authenticity. A unique touch comes in the form of the two-tone cabin scheme. Instead of matching grey carpets, this particular Turbo boasts red floors and matching piping on the seats.
We wouldn't be surprised if the 964 Turbo commands a lot more than the estimated $400,000 at the upcoming Pebble Beach event, on August 19-20. Earlier this year, an ex-Michael Bay example sold for $1.3 million, much to the director's chagrin. Then again, that particular example also starred in the original Bad Boys movie, as Will Smith's preferred choice of propulsion.
This coveted example will surely attract wealthy bidders from all over the country, all hoping to add the rarity to their prized collections. Older 911 Turbos are in high demand of late, with the air-cooled examples proving rather popular at high-class auctions. Bonhams recently had the privilege of selling off a uniquely-specced 993 Turbo, finished in a special order shade of purple with non-traditional wood veneer on the dashboard to boot.
