The 964, often described as the 911 with attitude, was manufactured between 1989 and 1993. The sound its flat-6 makes is arguably the nicest of any of the modern air-cooled cars. There is a pent up aggressiveness in its growl and at the time, it was the most powerful normally aspirated 911 ever built. The 964 was a major redesign of the philosophy and for the first time included features such as coil spring suspension, ABS and power assisted steering. These features all improved the 964’s driving behaviour.
The new all-wheel drive system was a major development and despite its heaviness, gave the 911 a new sure footedness and turned it into an excellent tourer. The slightly later Carrera 2 retained the agility of earlier models and is perfect for the driver who wants a sportier drive. The Coupé is the enthusiast’s choice for its bodyshell rigidity, but the Targa and Cabriolet offer open air advantages.
