(1992 – 1993) Porsche 911 America Roadster (964) – Ultimate Guide

The 1992 through 1993 Porsche 911 America Roadster is a limited production cabriolet variant of the 964 Carrera 2 with a Turbo body, intended for the North American market. It had the same mechanical setup as the Carrera 2, but its fender flares, brakes, suspension, and wheels were upgraded to Turbo-spec.

The American Roadster is essentially a turbo-bodied Carrera Cabriolet with Turbo suspension and brakes. Like the 356 America Roadster it was named after, the Type 964 America Roadster was a limited-edition, driver-focused convertible destined for the American market. It is rare too, with only 250 examples produced.

Production for the America Roadster was limited at only 250 examples, and the model was only produced in 1992 and 1993. Its engine was a standard unit making 250 horsepower, but the special edition had the wide fender flares, suspension, brakes, and 17-inch Porsche Cup wheels of the 911 Turbo. The small rear seats were replaced with a parcel shelf with storage compartments underneath, adding to the sporting nature of the car.

The wide Turbo-style body and lack of a rear spoiler gave the America Roadster an aggressive but sleek look. The Turbo model widebody, devoid of a whale tail is near perfect to our eyes.  This America Roadster has all original paint with paint meter readings available upon request as well as an excellent interior with showing minimal wear.

The rest of the world got a similar version and it was known as the 964 Carrera 2 ‘Turbo-look’.
