An Eye-Catching Amethyst Metallic 964 Porsche 911 Turbo Fetches Big Money At Auction
How about $401,000 for a 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6. Not bad and clearly the Porsche market is still strong for rare and high quality cars.
This 1994 Porsche 911 is one of approximately 1,500 Turbo 3.6 models produced for the 1993 and 1994 model years. The car is powered by a turbocharged 3.6-liter flat-six paired with a five-speed manual transaxle, and it is finished in special-ordered Amethyst Metallic over Classic Grey partial leather. Equipment includes polished 18″ Speedline wheels, a fixed rear spoiler, air conditioning, a power sunroof, power windows, and a Porsche Classic Communication Management infotainment system. Work in preparation for the sale has included dry-ice cleaning the undercarriage, cleaning the interior, repairing the air-conditioning system, and installing front-trunk carpeting.
The introduction of the 964 Carrera 4 in 1989 brought with it a new 3.6-litre engine, but unfortunately this engine was not yet ready for the application of a turbocharger at the 964’s launch. Due to Porsche’s production cycle, it was more than a year before the 964 Turbo arrived in February 1991, and against most expectations, it was disappointingly fitted with the old 3.3-litre engine. Although power was up on its predecessor, this was thanks to a larger turbocharger, a new injection system and revised electronic engine management. Those 964 Turbo models produced from 1991 onwards are referred to as ‘Turbo 2’ models, despite being powered by the same basic 3.3-litre engine. Notwithstanding the press department’s efforts to convince the media that the new 3.3-litre 964 Turbo was more powerful and represented a great stride forward, in reality the much heavier body negated any advantage in performance.
At the Geneva Motor Show in March 1992, the 3.3-litre 964 Turbo S was unveiled sporting air inlet vents in the rear fenders ahead of the wheels, a feature that would become a hallmark of all future 911 Turbos. Later that year, at the Paris Motor Show in the autumn, Porsche introduced its final iteration of the 964 Turbo, now featuring a 3.6-litre engine. Although the Turbo 3.6 entered production in October 1992, in reality, this model would be made for just one year, as the 964 was to be replaced by the all-new 993 series at the following year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. This almost guaranteed that the Turbo 3.6 would become a highly sought after model in time, as only 1437 units would be produced. Learn more about the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 (964).
