Coil springs, power steering and ABS were big steps for the 911 but, with the best-sounding and most powerful normally aspirated flat-six yet, the 964 was an instant hit.
Porsche showed its intent by launching the manual four-wheel-drive Carrera 4 coupé first, five months ahead of the two-wheel-drive version and other body styles, and a year before the Tiptronic auto option (which was only offered on the Carrera 2).
The four-wheel-drive car was very sure-footed but heavy, so the Carrera 2 is now the purist’s choice, especially in hardtop coupé form because the convertible and targa are inevitably slightly less rigid.
That said, most drivers would never notice the difference, and when Autocar drove the Carrera 2 Cabriolet Tiptronic in 1990, testers deemed it a hugely impressive car that was, for many, the ‘best of all worlds’ model.
Pushing this Silver Porsche 964 to the next level, the owner had air suspension installed allowing it to quite literally sit on the ground. We decided to kick it up a notch and outfit this 964 with a set of BF01 Circuit+ Series with 18×8.5 up front and 18×9.5 rears. Finished with Brushed Single Tint (gloss clear) for the face, Polished Single Tint (gloss clear) for the outer lip, and Firecracker Black (satin clear) for the inner barrel.
