Now available for auction is this 1994 Porsche 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet finished in Slate Grey Metallic over a Classic Grey interior. Reported to be one of only 283 U.S. Cabriolet models produced for the final year of the Porsche 964, this 1994 example was originally registered in Pennsylvania before moving to California in 1998 where it remained for nearly its entire life. It came factory optioned with 8-way power-adjustable seats and rear storage compartments as well as desirable 17” Cup Design wheels. Having undergone a major engine-out service in 2019, this 964 is said to have been very well maintained throughout the years with a massive collection of service records accompanying the sale. This 964 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Texas while showing approximately 95k miles on the odometer.
This Carrera 2 is finished in Slate Grey Metallic with a black cabriolet soft top and tonneau cover. The car is said to have been professionally refinished under previous ownership and the seller reports all factory-applied VIN labels to remain in place. CARFAX shows minor damage to have occurred to the left-front end in 2011 as well as damage to the convertible top in 2008. The seller states that the front-end damage resulted from a very minor parking lot scratch and the front bumper has since been refinished along with the complete replacement of the cabriolet top at a reported cost of $18k. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with the CARFAX report. This 964 came factory optioned with 17” Cup Design wheels which were dressed in new Continental tires earlier in 2020.
Inside, this Cabriolet sports a Classic Grey partial leather interior with optional 8-way power-adjustable front seats, and storage compartments in place of the rear seats. Other factory options include cruise control and an amplifier for the sound system. An aftermarket Alpine radio has been installed and the A/C knob has been replaced in recent years along with a power seat switch. The seller confirms all electrical accessories to be fully functional, although the A/C is said to need a recharge.
This 964 Carrera 2 is equipped with an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six engine that sends as much as 247 HP and 228 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 5-speed G50 manual gearbox. This 964 is said to have been treated to a very high level of care and maintenance throughout its life, as detailed in a thick binder of service records. A major engine-out service is also said to have been performed under the previous ownership in 2019 along with replacements of the CV boots.
This sale will include the original owner's manuals and leather pouch, toolkit, spare tire, a binder of service records, and a clean title. If you have been in search of an air-cooled Cabriolet, this final-year 964 Carrera 2 is not to be overlooked.
