Here’s a real treat. A 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 that’s been cleverly modified so that it drives almost like an RS. It really is a lot of fun, thanks to a substantial investment of over £15,000 over three years by the previous owner. In addition, we have invested a further £2000 in bringing the car up to our retail standards, including giving it a full service.
Key to the changes is a complete KW Variant 1 suspension kit, comprising of uprated springs and dampers, that gives a firmer and lower ride. In addition, it has H&R antiroll bars, fully adjustable top mounts, and Sport suspension bushes. The whole system has been carefully aligned to RS specification for optimal handling. Also, the brakes have been uprated with cross-drilled Cryogenic discs and Pagid Black pads. New ignition leads and distributer caps have been installed. Going back through the comprehensive history file, a new clutch was fitted in 2013, just 18,000 miles ag0.
Inside, the car retains its full Metropole Blue leather interior. The front and rear seats have been been professionally retrimmed and a new carpet set fitted, to ensure it’s a sumptuous place to be. A gorgeous Momo Prototipo steering wheel finishes off the cockpit perfectly.
The exterior is striking Cobalt Blue Metallic, which was refreshed with a full glass-out respray in 2015, complemented by 17-in Cup 1 wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.
This Porsche really is a credit to the enthusiasm and vision of its previous owner. If you have any preconceptions about how a 964 Carrera 4 handles, you need to forget them in relation to this example. It has the handling finesse similar to that of an RS but at a fraction of the price, and with the added benefit of four-wheel drive traction and roadholding. It is also rare to find a later 964 from 1992, as most date from 1990 or 1991.
