Known History

The Porsche 911 'Typ 964', a new version of the legendary 911, was presented in 1988. From the start, the customer was entitled to a 3.6-liter 250 hp engine, still air-cooled. Then, he can choose between 2 and 4 wheel drive and between three bodies: coupe, Targa and convertible. The Turbo arrived in 1990 ... but the range is still not complete. In Europe we will find Carrera RS, Speedster, Anniversary. The North American market will be entitled to 'its' exclusive Porsche 964: the America Roadster, which appeared in 1992 and is limited to 250 units. The name is not chosen at random since it commemorates the 21 Porsche 356s of the same name built at the request of the importer Max Hoffmann just 40 years earlier. If the latter is unknown, yet it is she who will inspire the legendary Speedster. Coming back to this special 964, it should be noted that it is the only Porsche 911 to be called Roadster. It should also be noted that its silhouette is known in Europe since it was sold there, with a few details, under the name of Carrera 2 Cabriolet Turbo Look. The car therefore takes many elements from the Turbo: its chassis and its tracks are widened, the gears are necessarily adapted while the spoiler has disappeared. The car is fitted with 17 "rims. On the other hand, under the back cover, it is indeed the 250 hp engine of the Carrera 2 that we find. under the name of Carrera 2 Cabriolet Turbo Look. The car therefore takes many elements from the Turbo: its chassis and tracks are wider, the suspension has been adapted and the spoiler has disappeared. The car is fitted with 17" wheels. However, under the rear bonnet, the 250 bhp engine of the Carrera 2 is still there.

The history of the model offered - extremely rare in Europe - is complete and known in particular thanks to the American Carfax system which mentions sales, mileage and the various technical inspections (photos 069 Ó 073). It thus attests to a purchase in September 1992, then to the existence of three other owners, all in California, from 1995 to June 2016, the date of its acquisition by the seller. The car is equipped with a tracker with an up-to-date subscription and an alarm. The tool kit, complete, original, is present, like the maintenance book, and all the invoices since 2016. The last technical inspection dates from November 2020, it is valid for two years. Finally, our America Roadster had the honor of an article in RS Magazine (photos 066 Ó 068).
