964RS

Rising classic Porsche prices

The fact that a Porsche 964 Carrera 2 RS (above) sold for a record-breaking £215,000 at auction recently has been big news that has caused shockwaves around the Porsche world. That’s big money, even for a super-low-mileage RS, and will undoubtedly have a positive effect on prices of other 964s and, indeed, in classic Porsches in general. We’ve seen noticeable increases in air-cooled 911 prices over the last year and, in turn, increased demand for good examples. 993s, in particular, get snapped up very quickly, with people almost fighting over them. We had the same thing with a trio of 964 […]

Do try to be original!

Here’s a car I spotted for sale that bothers me. It’s actually a 1987 3.2 Carrera, but you’d never guess it. It’s been ‘updated’ with 964 bumpers and rear spoiler plus an aftermarket front spoiler. Inside, it looks as if someone got a Halfords gift voucher for Christmas and spent it all on the poor old 911.

Increasingly, buyers of older 911s are looking […]

People like to buy cars from me, because I’m an enthusiast not a car dealer. I sell from my home (the cars are kept in a secure garage, and buyers like to chat Porsches over a coffee and I’m aways happy to offer advice. I’ve sold several cars to delighted new owners recently and am keen to get more stock. I’ve people asking for everything from a humble 996 […]

Is the 964 the next big thing?

Anyone who knows me will know I’m a big fan of the 964-series 911 made from 1989 to 1993. It’s a Porsche that’s had a tough life. In the early days, the engines leaked oil on a regular basis and, although Porsche quickly modified them to solve the problem, the damage was done, and the 964 had a reputation for being troublesome. And then along came the 993, which had no reliability issues and, for many people, was better looking with its sexy curves. The 964 was to always live in the 993’s shadow and, as such, has been cheaper […]
