We are pleased to offer this 1991 Porsche 964 Turbo finished in Cobalt Blue Metallic over a Classic Grey leather interior. One of only 674 examples delivered to the U.S. for the model year, this 1991 964 Turbo was delivered new in Chicago before eventually being acquired by the current owner in 2001. It features a host of high-end upgrades including a hybrid turbocharger, RUF short-throw shifter, RUF sway bars, a TiAL wastegate, B&B exhaust, H&R adjustable suspension, 993 Turbo hollow-spoke wheels, and more. Accompanied by service records covering the last 20 years including a top-end engine rebuild at 43k miles, this rare 964 Turbo is now being offered for auction by its longtime owner out of North Carolina while showing approximately 44,500 miles on the odometer.
This Turbo is finished in the special-order color of Cobalt Blue Metallic (37U). Clear Euro front marker lenses have been installed along with RS front splitters, Fabspeed stainless steel exhaust tips, and 18” 993 Turbo hollow-spoke wheels. A professional paint correction was recently carried out and all the original glass is said to have been retained. Some minor cosmetic imperfections are noted including chips on the lower front fascia, a scrape on the rear bumper, and thin areas of paint on the passenger side roof and driver side rear fender. The hood, windshield cowl, front bumper, and driver-side front fender are all said to have been refinished under previous ownership. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. The wheels are currently dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 which are said to have been mounted about 11 years ago with approximately 4k miles driven since. The seller reports 10/32 tread in front and 8/32 tread in the rear.
Inside, this 964 highlights a Classic Grey leather interior with 8-way power-adjustable seats, an onboard computer, a genuine RUF short-throw shifter, and an upgraded sound system including an Alpine CDA-9851 stereo and Infinity speakers. A small tear is noted in the driver side headliner near the sun visor and the seller reports minimal wear on the steering wheel. The A/C was converted to R134 at 29k miles and was serviced again at 44.5k miles. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional.
The 964 Turbo carried over the 3.3L flat-six single-turbo engine from the 930 with revisions including a new intake and exhaust system, updated Bosch Motronic programming, a larger turbocharger, and a dual-mass flywheel. In stock configuration, this engine sends as much as 315 HP and 332 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed G50/52 manual transmission with a limited-slip differential. This example has been fitted with a hybrid K27/K29 turbocharger, TiAL wastegate with 0.90 bar spring, B&B stainless steel exhaust with heat exchangers, WEVO semi-solid motor and transmission mounts, a stainless-steel catalytic convertor bypass pipe with oxygen sensor, and stainless-steel catalytic convertor bypass on the wastegate. The suspension has been upgraded with adjustable H&R struts and springs, a Rennline front strut tower brace, and RUF sway bars. The stopping power has also been improved with Pagid Sport brake pads. Routine maintenance has been addressed annually throughout the current ownership and a top-end engine rebuild is said to have been completed by European Performance of Raleigh, NC at 43.5k miles. An alignment and corner balance were performed at 33.5k miles, and the brake pads, wear sensors, and rotors were replaced at 39k miles.
This sale will include the original owner's manuals, radio instructions, and warranty booklets, a set of two keys, a workshop manual, and a clean title. One of the rarest and most sought-after generations of the 911 Turbo, this example offers a visceral 930-derived engine and rear-wheel-drive configuration combined with the refined styling and technology of the 964. Offered with a rare factory color, high-end upgrades, and less than 45k miles traveled from new, this Turbo is ready to be enjoyed by a new caretaker.
