We are pleased to offer this one-of-a-kind Porsche 964 Carrera Euro RS tribute by Ninemeister, a leading Porsche specialist. Imported from Canada by its current owner in Texas in 1995, this 964 began life as a U.S. market Carrera 4 finished in White. In 2014 the owner set out to commission a custom restoration by a company in Munich, which faltered midway through the build process and disappeared with many of the car’s original parts. In need of a specialist to complete the custom build, the owner turned to Colin Belton at Ninemeister (9M) in the U.K. and shipped what was left of the car from Munich to Manchester along with a 33k miles donor 964 Cabriolet was sourced from the U.S. Colin went on to create the rear-wheel-drive 964 Euro RS Touring tribute we see today, powered by a hand-built 3.8 L flat-six engine. Also showcasing a custom reupholstered interior, an adjustable Bilstein coil-over suspension, and upgraded 993 brakes, this uncompromising 5-speed manual transmission, sunroof-delete 964 Euro RS Tribute is being offered by its owner out of Dallas, TX.
During its time at 9M this 964 was placed on a rotisserie, completely stripped, and refinished in Bentley Beluga Black. Any missing panels were soured from the cabriolet donor car. Clear paint protection film is applied over the front bumper and in front of the rear wheels, and the paint is said to be in pristine condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). For an understated OEM look, Porsche Euro-spec front and rear bumpers were fitted along with RS front brake ducts and aero mirrors. Custom LED headlights by 9 Eleven were also installed and this 964 rides on 18” Rotiform LHR wheels in a matte bronze finish with new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires. The car is finished off with a custom gold 9M model designation on the rear decklid.
Inside, the cabin has been custom reupholstered in fine Cinnamon (orange/tan) leather on almost all touchpoints, with Graphite leather as a secondary material. Heated seats were added along with Dynamat sound insulation, RS carpeting, an RS battery cutoff switch, and a slightly padded MOMO Prototipo steering wheel. The custom sound system consists of Focal speakers, an Alpine head unit with Bluetooth, and a Hertz amplifier beautifully installed under the passenger front seat. There is also a USB port allowing the owner to stream from a storage device. A Porsche Stuttgart radio (no codes) is also included. The air conditioning system was completely overhauled with Griffiths components and the entire wiring harness was rebuilt by 9M, removing all redundant wiring (including an aftermarket alarm system). The seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional, and notes that once the car was imported back to the U.S. the odometer was reset to 0.
The donor engine for this build is said to have had under 34k miles and post-rebuild, it is said to achieve 306 HP on 91-octane gas. The custom 3.8 L flat-six has been built and tuned to RS specifications with a custom machined crankcase, Mahle pistons, 993 cylinders, 9M RSR connecting rods, 993 RS camshafts, a 993-sourced Varioram intake manifold, and a Motronic DME remap. One of the more noteworthy upgrades, the Varioram intake provides more torque in the lower RPM ranges, further improving drivability. An OEM Porsche exhaust is equipped and a cat bypass will be included in the sale. The G50 5-speed manual gearbox was paired with a Wavetrac limited slip differential and an RS lightweight clutch and flywheel assembly. A unique to Ninemeister 4-channel ABS braking system was installed along with 993 brakes featuring black painted calipers. The suspension was upgraded with Bilstein PS10 adjustable coilovers, 993 components, 9M RS bushings, and has been set to OEM Euro RS ride height. Any donor parts that were in good condition were professionally restored. A full record of brand-new parts installed during the restoration is included in the photo gallery. This RS tribute is said to drive beautifully.
This sale will include a toolkit, air compressor, spare tire, original H4 headlights with new bulbs, and a clean title. Ninemeister’s 964 to 964 Euro RS restorations start at 150,000 GBP plus donor car; this car has their top-of-the-line engine spec, along with the additional upgrades mentioned. A totally unique build with an extensive amount of time and work invested, this 964 RS tribute is ready to begin its journey with a new owner.
