Now you have the opportunity to do what a thief tried to: do this 911 some justice by putting some actual miles on it.
The Porsche 964 is one of the most desirable versions of the timeless 911. One of the reasons for that is the 1995 hit movie Bad Boys starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Smith made the car even cooler than it really is. He cruised Miami in a 1995 hard top model with that whale-tail rear wing and a turbocharged 3.6-liter setup. This rare 1992 roadster variant features the same powerplant but being able to cruise looking at the stars raises it's want factor tenfold, and soon a collector can add this to a fleet.
The America Series Porsches date back to Max Hoffman, the importing godfather who helped Porsche realize the opportunity in the US, which paved the way for the iconic Speedster's introduction to the market. The original America Roadster was limited to 25 models and only one ever set tire in the States. Forty years later Porsche created 250 units of a modern America Roadster, and that's what you see before you. This particular car has been meticulously maintained and you'd never guess that it's been stolen before. Earlier this year the car was taken during a house robbery but was luckily recovered by police less than 48 hours later. This saw a visit to a Porsche dealership for a full look over and new locks.
Since 1992 this 964 America Roadster has averaged just 140 miles a year, and it's up for sale over at Petrolicious with just 3366 miles on the odometer. It's in Schwartz paint with a tan leather interior and the barely run in flat six is mated to a four-speed tiptronic automatic transmission. The 3.6-liter flat-six is good for 247 horsepower and 228 lb-ft of torque.The roadster uses the bigger brakes off a 964 Turbo model along with the suspension and 17-inch Porsche Cup five-spoke wheels. If you're in the market for a rare piece of Porsche history, you'll need to head on down to Pleasanton in California carrying a kit bag with $165,000 stuffed in it. That seems like a pretty good bargain to us.
