Porsche Of The Day: 1991 Porsche 911 Backdate Touring Edition by Abreu Motors
Starting with a European-market 964 Carrera 4 that retains its original numbers, this 1991 model underwent an extensive custom nut-and-bolt restoration spanning over 3,500 hours by Abreu Motors. The restoration included a comprehensive full-metal wide-body conversion, the installation of backdated bumpers, and the integration of new suspension featuring Bilstein PSS10 coilovers. The exterior received a finish in Azure Blue, while the interior was meticulously crafted with custom Cherry Chocolate Italian basketweave leather upholstery and German square weave wool carpeting.
Despite being a given a new look, this 911 remains a 964 at its heart with a completely rebuilt and upgraded 3.6L flat-six engine. Delivering an estimated output of 300 HP, this engine underwent enhancements such as a lightweight flywheel, a performance chip, a carbon fiber heater duct, Wevo mounts, a K&N air intake, a Racing Dynamics catalytic converter bypass pipe, and a custom ceramic-coated stainless-steel dual-exit exhaust. Post-assembly, the flat-six found its place within a leather-lined engine compartment, paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox that underwent vapor blasting and received new drain and fill plugs, along with a new front output shaft.
