We are pleased to present this highly collectible 1992 Porsche 964 America Roadster finished in Black over black partial leather. Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the special lightweight Glaser-bodied 356 “America Roadster” developed for Porsche distributor Max Hoffman, the 964 America Roadster was built in a limited series of 250 examples between 1992 and 1993. This unique Cabriolet features the wide fenders, suspension, brakes, and Cup Design wheels the Turbo model paired with the naturally aspirated rear-wheel-drive platform of the Carrera 2. Purchased by its current owner in July of 2019 with over $7k worth of service carried out since, this America Roadster is now being offered for auction out of Southern California with approximately 38k miles showing on the odometer.
Reported to have been professionally refinished in its factory Black (L700) color during May of 2019, the paint on this 964 is said to be in excellent overall condition with only minimal signs of road-going wear (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). The America Roadster incorporates the retractable soft top and smooth rear decklid of the Carrera 2 Cabriolet with the wide fenders of the Turbo model, providing for an aggressive yet understated look. The Cabriolet top has been recently replaced and the matching boot cover is included as well. This Cabriolet rides on replica 17” Cup-style wheels that are currently dressed in healthy Sumitomo tires.
Inside, this 964 features a beautifully presented black partial leather interior with an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat. The rear seats were omitted from the America Roadster in favor of a luggage compartment and this example has been equipped with stainless steel pedal covers and an aftermarket Alpine stereo and amplifier. All gauges and accessories are said to be working properly including the factory air conditioning, power windows, and retractable top.
A naturally aspirated 3.6 L flat-six engine sends 247 HP and 228 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a G50 5-speed manual transmission. The upgraded suspension of the Turbo model was equipped for the America Roadster along with the Turbo’s larger brakes with cross-drilled rotors. A comprehensive service was recently carried out under the current ownership at a cost of nearly $7k which included the following items:
This sale will include a toolkit, spare tire, boot cover, and a clean title. For any enthusiast in search of a truly special air-cooled 911, this rare and well-presented 964 America Roadster is not to be missed.
