1994 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 Wide-Body, Guards Red on Cashmere, 1 of 267 built
1994 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 Wide-Body
At the final end of 964 production Porsche produced 267 Wide-Body Carrera 4 Coupes, model year 1994 and just for the North American Market. Unlike the previous 3.2 Carrera, Porsche never offered an M491 or M470 Turbo-look or wide body option for the normally aspirated cars. The only other model to receive the Turbo’s wide-body were the 250 America Roadsters, but those were cabriolet’s. So if you want a wide-body 964 Coupe, the 1994 C4 is your only choice and just 267 were built! I LOVE the wide hips and no fixed rear spoiler on the 964! Notable item, the 964 received wider front AND rear fenders, you will note on the 993 era cars the WB cars only got the widened rear fenders, beautiful but not quite as amazing as these aesthically!
This particular example is a perfect choice for the person who wants to use a Porsche as intended, to be DRIVEN! This car is a driver that has covered 171, 820 miles, so it has been enjoyed! The good news is you will feel absolutely ZERO guilt about putting more miles on it, in fact I would encourage someone to start stacking up the miles and hopefully it can become a quarter million mile example some day.
Here are the Pro’s on this car:
- 1 of 267 MY 1994 Widebody Carrera 4 Coupes
- Guards Red over Cashmere interior
- 2 owners from new with a nearly complete service history.
- $19k in service work in the past 3,000 miles
- 4% leak down noted on most recent test
- Runs and Drives really well
- Aesthetically looks excellent given its age and mileage
- Numbers matching
- Complete with books, manuals, CofA, tools, air-compressor and more.
- Higher mileage means its show evidence of use aesthetically and mechanically. Ready to be driven now, but there are several items that at some point might require your attention. Better for the wrench owning Porsche enthusiast vs. the Griot’s orbital polisher owning Porschephile.
- Engine has great leak down but has several common 964 leaks, none are catastrophic but it you want a dry engine this isn’t your car unless you want to invest in a potential top-end overhaul.
- Left front fender was replaced and is noted on Carfax, all other body parts match. Car completely repainted in 2003, completed by Porsche specialist Eurotech Body Werks in Kirkland, WA.
Truthfully since this car isn’t my typical low mileage, garage queen car I had a hard time setting the market value. The aforementioned types are selling for well over $100k and regular narrow body, late 1992-1994 964 coupes are selling over $60k. So where does this one fit? I decided to let Bring a Trailer define the market. Check it out there!
