Manufactured by Porsche Motorsport for use in their U.S. customer racing series, the Porsche 964 Carrera Cup vehicles originated from European-market Carrera RS models. These were adapted to comply with U.S. regulations and subsequently sent to Porsche’s motorsport partner, Andial, for race modifications.

Similar to the Carrera RS, the Carrera Cup boasts a chassis with seam welding, an aluminum hood, a limited-slip differential, and a 3.6-liter flat-six engine tuned to produce 256 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft of torque. Despite the cancellation of the Carrera Cup series just before its inaugural race, the cars were dispersed and sold through Porsche dealers across North America.
