The Porsche 964 – 964 is the internal designation for this generation of the 911 and was built between 1988 and 1993. It was the successor of the heavily outdated 911 G-model which was built over a very long period of 15 years and featured significant technical innovations as well as styling revisions compared to its predecessor. The 964 was a more modern and comfortable evolution of the 911 while maintaining the classic design of it. The most prominent design changes at the exterior were the new front and rear bumpers which were discussed controversial by 911 enthusiasts.
The main technical innovations introduced with the 964 platform included standard power steering and ABS and an optional all-wheel drive system derivated from the Porsche 959 supercar. Improved aerodynamics included the front and rear bumper, redesigned underbody and – for the Carrera and Speedster version – a new rear spoiler which automatically extended at speeds above 80 km/h. The 964 therewith achieved a very good drag factor of 0.32 allowing the standard Carrera 2 with 250bhp to run 260 km/h, the same top speed as the earlier 911 turbo (930) with an additional 50bhp achieved.
The Porsche 964 was available in the following versions: Carrera 2, Carrera 4, Carrera RS, Carrera RS America, Carrera RS 3.8, Speedster, Turbo, Turbo 3.6 and Turbo S as well as some exclusive versions produced in smaller numbers.
The Carrera RS was a super-lightweight and puristic version of the Carrera 2 offered on the European market only. It was based on Porsche's 911 "Carrera Cup" race car (the successor of the 944 turbo cup car) and harkened back to the 2.7 and 3.0 RS / RSR models.
The RS featured a revised version of the standard engine, the M64/03, providing an increased power output of 260 bhp (191 kW) and better response thanks to a lightweight flywheel. Its powertrain featured a G50/10 transmission offered closer gear ratios, an asymmetrical Limited Slip Differential and steel syncromesh. Further modifications included a 40mm lowered suspension system with stiffer springs, shocks and adjustable stabilizer bars. The interior was stripped out completely by removing power steering, power windows and seats, rear seats, air conditioning, cruise control, sound deadening material and the stereo system. Lightweight bucket racing front seats were fitted instead.
The front bonnet was made of aluminum and the chassis was seam welded, side windows were equipped with thinner and lighter glass.
To round off this radical diet, the Carrera RS was equipped with magnesium 17 inch Cup wheels. These efforts led to a total weight saving of 150 kg (total weight 1220kg / 1150kg with completely removed sound-deadening material) compared to the Carrera 2, transforming the RS into a faster and much more agile and responsive car.
The Carrera RS was also available in a heavier Touring version where some comfort options were put back (power windows and seats, sound-deadening) and undercarriage protection was applied. Porsche also offered a more radical version of the Carrera RS, the so called Carrera RS N/GT, featuring completely factory-stripped and blank interior and a roll cage. 1280 Carrera RS and 290 Carrera RS N/GT were built.
The Carrera RS was not sold on the US market because the American importer considered its concept to be too radical and aggressive for the american clientele. However, some American 911 enthusiasts wanted a RS version of the 964 and Porsche reacted to please them with the introduction of the Carrera RS America. The RS America may be considered as a “considerably softened” version of the European Carrera RS: Deleted to save weight only were power steering, cruise control, powered side mirrors, air-conditioning, sunroof and radio. 17 inch Aluminium Cup I wheels and M030 sports suspension were fitted as standard and the RS America had distinctive “Whale-Tail” spoiler. The engine and gearbox of the Carrera 2 were used. As the America RS was a compromise between the comfortable and “heavy” standard Carrera 2 and the “real” Carrera RS, only 35kg’s were saved and the difference in driving dynamics between these two models was not comparable to the European Carrera RS. Nonetheless 701 Carrera RS America were built.
This car coming with a complete history file from new, is one out of 290 real Carrera RS N/GTs.
