  1. Having been on the hunt for a 964 (or two) the past few years, I thought a dedicated thread on the 964 market was worth starting. Whilst it’s difficult to stay up to date on actual values it has been easier to track the relative values, model v model. To be clear, this has nothing to do with personal preference. These are the relative values based on sales. So, having assumed like for like history, mileage, originality, colour combo, options, year model, overall condition etc I’ve ordered the relative model values of all the 964 variants that were available in Australia. There might be one or two out of place and happy to amend if anyone wants to contribute info. Firstly for reference here are the list prices when new: 1 $295k Turbo 3.6 2 $279k Turbo 3.3 3 $245k C2 Tiptronic Conv. WB 4 $237k C2 Manual Conv. WB 5 $225k C4 Jubi 6 $216k C4 Manual Convertible 7 $205k C2 Tiptronic Convertible 8 $202k C4 Manual Targa 9 $196k C2 Manual Convertible =10 $195k C4 Manual Coupe =10 $195k Speedster 12 $192k C2 Tiptronic Targa 13 $191k RS 14 $184k C2 Tiptronic Coupe 15 $183k C2 Manual Targa 16 $175k C2 Manual Coupe UPDATE for reference $230k 928 GTS Manual or Auto $220k 928 S4/GT $157k 968 Cab Auto $150k 968 Cab Manual $142k 968 Coupe Auto $135k 968 Coupe Manual And now here is where I think we are today. Note the top 4 are well out on their own. The Jubi is a bit of an unknown here as not many around. Then there is a bit of daylight to the C2 Manual Coupe, which itself sits out on its own, before the rest of the model range follows. 1 Turbo 3.6 2 Turbo 3.3 3 RS 4 Speedster 5 C4 Jubi 6 C2 Manual Coupe 7 C2 Manual Conv. WB 8 C4 Manual Coupe 9 C2 Tiptronic Coupe 10 C2 Tiptronic Conv. WB 11 C2 Manual Targa 12 C2 Manual Convertible 13 C2 Tiptronic Targa 14 C2 Tiptronic Convertible 15 C4 Manual Targa 16 C4 Manual Convertible I’d say the only cars demanding equivalent or more than their new car price would be the top 4. The 964 is nearly 30 years old now. I don’t have any data on where all these cars were 15 years ago but my guess is that was the time to buy an RS, Turbo, Speedster or Jubi.
  2. A quick strawpoll on everyone's general choice of 4 x BEST colours - and 4 x LEAST LIKED for a standard Aircooled 911 from say, 1978 SC up to 1998 993. Yes I know I've missed plenty of shades of colours blah blah, and some metallics blah blah but I wanted it to be quick and easy. Please choose your best 4 colours IN ORDER (best to 4th best) ------ And choose your least liked 4 colours IN ORDER (worst to 4th worst) . DON'T BOTHER WITH THE MIDDLE FOUR COLOURS AND DON'T NAME THE COLOURS USE NUMBERS ONLY. Read the colours L to R top row as 1, 2, 3 ........ L to R 2nd row as 4, 5, 6 ....... L to R third row as 7, 8, 9 ...... L to R bottom row as 10, 11, 12. For example mine reads as: BEST 2, 7, 12, 8. LEAST LIKED 5, 11, 3, 6 I'll tally it all up in a while and name colour results. LETS HAVE FUN KIDS! (and Mr Pork Chops you can go stand in the corner!)
  3. Hi List, I'm in the process of acquiring various parts for my engine rebuild. Inlet valves are next on my shopping list. It seems the Porsche part 96410540908 is ^$$$s. I'm asking for direction and alternate suggestions, please. TIA John
  4. Having thought about this car a lot recently I was hoping to see if I could track it down if for nothing else to share information around ownership with the current owner.

  5. This is pretty interesting time we live in. Backdates come along with massive wide body kits etc. A compeny from Moscow named Clinched make widebody kits and over fenders for a veriety of cars but they`re interested in Porsche market as well. This is a render but looks quite inetersting. Sort of backdate for 996 to 964. Honestly it`s the first time I dig into this backdate.
  6. In perfect condition, no oil dropping at all. Picture say more than words. Asking 150k. Carsales: https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-1993/SSE-AD-5040578/?Cr=16 New picture will live on Monday but you can find at instagram now. Instagram:
  7. Looking for a 964\993 mirrors aka teardrops, aka aero mirrors. Replicas would do but no the rubbish ones. Prefer manual ones but... Color doesn`t matter. Regards, George.
  8. Yep.... I'm looking for someone to become my new bestie... He or she, must preferably own a 964, or at least an air-cooled Porsche... and must live in Brisbane... if not they should be prepared to travel. Non-smoker preferred, and must like cats.... dogs are OK, but I'm not a fan.. I have no children and preferably neither will you, so we can go on cool weekend drives, take youtube videos and work on our cars. However, if you do have children, I'd rather not know about them Wives and girlfriends are OK, so long as they acknowledge their position in the pecking order.. mine is well trained and understands that car first, bike second, cats third... and she is somewhere near 5th or 6th depending on my mood at the time. Age is not important... but for your info I am early 4's. I do work long hours and my new friend will likely do so as well... it seems to be a requirement to be able to afford all the parts that these cars swallow up. Sunday is my only real play day or any night. I am willing to share my tools, knowledge and experience, in turn for your willingness to laugh at all my bad sarcastic jokes. For the record, I can read, write and I wash daily.. I also know the difference between "their, there and they're" and am a bit of a stickler for correct grammar.. although I swear like a real Australian and use the F word a lot...I'm trying to cut back If any of the above interests, you, and why they hell would it not... please get in touch NO VEGANS PLEASE
  9. I know somebody who has a 1993 964 Carrera 2 coming up for sale. They asked me if I knew what it might be worth but I am finding it difficult to put a number on because of the following: - Very high kms (324,000) - Unusual colour, Rhodamine Red Metalic (only 2 sold in Aus with this colour the owner thought, but it does look a bit pink for my liking) - 1 owner car, Aus delivered, matching numbers - Service history and books, has had a respray at some point. Any suggestions welcome, I'm not interested in the car myself.
  10. Spyder550 posted a witty lament the other day that the chance of finding a good manual 964 C2 for sale was pretty slim as there are another 7000 PFA'ers trying to do exactly the same thing. I frankly found that somewhat depressing. But hang on, there is always a few C4's for sale and are they as "bad" as legend and hearsay make out? To get to the "truth" I referred to a guy I have relied on for 30 years, Peter Robinson who just happened to have done a C2 and C4 comparison in the February 1990 edition of Wheels magazine: I still remember the cover when this edition came on sale and actually bought it for another comparison it contained.
  11. (I'm shaking as I write this post!) I feel like I'm putting one of my kids up for adoption..........it's definitely not something that comes easily. I am however having to weigh up certain options and thought I'd reach out to the PFA family prior to listing the car on the 'open' market. I never thought I'd look or think to sell it, as a result it's been pampered but alas the time to move her on maybe nigh................... Here is the advert listing that I've put together, bit of a ramble but hopefully informative to any potential purchaser's; It is with much reluctance that I am offering my 1990, 964 C2 manual coupe for sale. This opportunity to obtain a rare and desirable 911 is only due to a new purchase on the horizon and a lack of space for secure storage, but by no means is it a desperate sale though. I’m a devout Porsche enthusiast and this particular 964 has had all the necessary money spent on all the right things, ready to just get in, drive and enjoy. Items include; Electrical items including new stereo (period looking but with including Bluetooth connectivity), new speakers throughout (using factory mesh), refreshed rear tail lights and centre reflector including LED globes (no pink and no cracks), LED globes to dash interface (as standard it can be quite dark, not ideal for an evening commute), new battery, starter motor and leads. Everything electrical is as it should be – perfect. The car is currently running KW suspension (RS spec.) with cup 1 17” wheels. These have been custom powder coated ‘white’ and are shod in Michelin Pilot Spot tyres (N spec as per factory recommendation) and perform as you would expect – amazing. In addition to the upgraded wheels & suspension all 4 wheel bearings have been replaced. This can be quite a costly exercise and is quite typical for 964’s. No need to worry though Loui from Motion Automotive has taken care of that for you. The interior is 100% completely original including the original delivery floor mats. The car was optioned with ‘soft leather’ and it’s as comfortable as it looks, the ultimate tourer. Mechanically the car has recently completed its 200km major service thanks to Spencer Harrison at Harrisons RRR. This is an involved job on a 964 and can be quite costly but again that’s been taken care of by one of the best AC Porsche mechanics around. The car also benefits from an aftermarket exhaust, chip, later model cup mirrors and drilled brake rotors that all together make this one of the ultimate & purposefully modified street 964's around. Lastly, to complete the package, all of the original parts are included with the sale. This includes the original delivery D90 wheels, suspension, flag mirrors, exhaust – everything you’d need to revert back to original factory specification. I think the car is perfect as is but given the value of these cars you can sleep soundly knowing that when the time is right to roll this into a museum you will tick all the boxes in terms of originality – be sure to enjoy it in the meantime though! This car is a peach. It’s not a concourse car, it’s a driver, to be used as Ferry intended. The rise in 964 values I believe has been due to these being the ultimate usable classic 911. Bluetooth and cruise control allow you to commute in style whilst still being able to enjoy the rewards that a period analogue sports car (especially a 911) can deliver. It really is the perfect balance of both worlds where you can have a usable & practical classic car. The car is currently being prepared for sale including an extensive detail. I am reluctant to list with a price at this stage but am open to be contacted by seriously interested parties. As mentioned previously, this is not a desperate sale so please don't contact me unless your prepared to engage in a serious discussion and are in a position to purchase if indeed a deal is done. I would also appreciate if we could keep the thread to interested parties. Feel free to contact via PM if you wish to express interest and I will respond with answers to any further questions you may have. Cheers, Hugh.
  12. As some of you may already know I was pretty disappointed to have missed out on a 964 that came up for sale last month in WA. It sold within a very short time of hitting the interwebs and I was in the long queue of people who missed out. Feeling shattered (but not surprised), I left my number with the current owner (who was a really nice guy!) and doubted I would ever hear from him with the likely hood of the current deal falling through pretty slim................"If it was meant to be it will be" I said to myself. Well, it must have been meant to be as a few days later I got the call, the previous deal had fallen through (foreign buyer/investor). A deal was done and before I knew it I had bought my long awaited second Porsche. Stressful but well worth the pain or at least I hope so as I am still yet to meet it! After a delay in WA due to a train derailment it looks like it is on its way (if I can decode the cryptic tracking information correctly), hopefully will arrive sometime next week? (fingers crossed!) Anyway, for those unaware of the car here she is.................. And the hi vis man taking her off to the depot............... For those curious as to why I bought this car, as an addicted Porsche lurker (aren't we all!) I spend most of what little free time I have perving on Porsche's. Whilst there are a lot of nice cars out there, some come and go but every now and then one just grabs you. Aside from meeting a particular criteria that interests me, there was something else about this car that made me pick up the phone? That was almost 3 weeks ago and I have still not given it a second thought - my own 'mail order Porsche', younger and somewhat more refined to my current model (not that I'm comparing!) Buying my first Porsche is something I have never regretted (although many people assumed I would). Here's hoping that this latest addition brings me that same pleasure for ownership and the marque that I know we all share. Cheers, Hugh. (P.S I hope you don't mind me borrowing your title Simon although it should be noted this will be my only white car!)
  13. Among the many threads I have seen on this topic, I found this thread the most useful and inspirational when sorting out the odd leak on my 993. I suspect one other PFA'er in particular may find it useful too! http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-964-993-technical-forum/644446-964-oil-leaks-fixes-thread.html
  14. Hi all, I'm looking for a bit of info and/or pointers on a new issue I've encountered on my 1993 964 C2 Tiptronic. The speedo intermittently doesn't work. A bit of background: a few weeks ago my alternator belt snapped and given the car's age, I thought I'd replace the pulleys/shims/bolts whilst I had things apart. Despite using a properly-set torque wrench and new (even genuine) bolts, one of them snapped in the alternator fan assembly and I had to semi remove the alternator to sort it out. Also at the time the belt broke, the ABS light came on but hasn't done so since. I can make it turn on by removing its relay (the fusebox one, R34), so am assuming the relay is OK and the monitoring of the system is as well. Not long after, the speedo started playing up. By that I mean the speed reading = 0 km/h on both the analogue and digital displays and the odometer/trip meters don't tick over. Going over bumps can trigger this, suggesting to me there's a loose connection...somewhere. My research has led me to look at the ABS sensors on the front wheels (cleaned, checked cables' contact), the ABS electronic control unit in the luggage bay (to which the cables eventually connect), the relays on top of the ABS hydraulic unit (they're there and seated), the pulse converter in the fuse box (relay 52, again, it's there, seated, no burn/smoke marks on the PCB inside it). I've read that the front left wheel's ABS sensor is where the signal originates, but previously it came from a sensor near the [manual] transmission. Any suggestions on where to from here? My take is that the speedo works OK, since it seems able to function properly and the computer also registers 0 km/h (unless one supplies the other with the info?) but the fact that it's intermittent suggests a loose connection. But where should I look now? Cheers.
  15. Hi, PCM just sent me this picture of my diff which seems to have disintegrated. Oh, and replacement (Porsche) parts total circa $12k. they are however looking around for used/reconditioned ones for me. Anyone had a similar experience and could advise on how they navigated through it ? Also interested to hear recommendations of shops in Melbourne that do a lot of work on 964's in particular ? thanks nick

    Hi fellow PFA members, I have just found that my original rear RH Boge shock has dropped its oil. Looking back through my cars history, a previous owner replaced the fronts with Bilsteins about 4 years ago. Do I replace the Boge units? put in some similar Bilsteins? or do I go for broke (easy to do!) and upgrade all 4 corners with something like a B16 kit? or equivalent? I would be grateful for any advice/recommendations from other 964 C4 owners or 911 owners who have faced the same decision. The cars main use is touring and street, however have recently developed an appetite for supersprints, but am sure this will remain as a hobby if I want to stay a hubby :-)
  17. I find this channel strangely hypnotic, and usually have it running for my first cuppa of the day. This one has some particularly average driving from the Porsche contingent. Spot the small "bits" coming off the violet GT3 RS as he gets the corner wrong. Also featuring some average driving from a Cayman pilot, and a 996. There's a 964 in there as well. First Porsche (a 991) at 3:30
  18. Im currently in two mind about swapping out my factory 1974 911 seats with some that offer a bit more support around the edges. Thought it would be a good opportunity to see what others have in their car? So please list the following: Car: (Model and Year) Seat: (Including Brand and Model) Rails: (Used to fix the seats to the car) Difficulty of Install: (1 being as easy as putting your seat belt on, 10 being as difficult as getting into the back of a 911 with fixed backs while being pregnant) Feedback: (For example: Comparison of feel to previous seats, quality, degrading over time)
  19. SOLD 1992 964 C2 Manual For Sale - (Pics below) Ok, time to share the 964 love. I’ve decided to sell one of our 964’s and it will be the C2. I looked for this one for quite a while and finally found it off market last year. Was purchased as a potential base for a lightly modded project. However being realistic it’s too good to modify, plus my project has taken another turn. Details: 1992 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 25 Spd ManualAustralian delivered to Porsche Hobart (Performance Automobiles) on 8 October 1992Spent most of its life in Melbourne before making its way to SydneyRed on Black - Guards Red with Black Leather Interior130,000kmFull Service History by Porsche Melbourne and Porsche Specialists Wevo engine mounts (black pillows)Genuine Cup 1 WheelsAdjustable Koni ShocksMichelin Pilot Sport 3 Tyres plus a second set of Continental Contisport Contact 3s availableSunroof (so not the ultimate unicorn)Rear wiperAuto watch immobiliser professionally installedContinental mechless head unit with phone and bluetoothWindscreen radio antenna with no secondary antenna mounted to bodyworkNumber plates (TYP 964) also available separately
  20. So, thought it’s about time to share a couple of images and some info on our 964, having been floating around here a short while now. It’s a 1990 C4 non-sunroof, satin black metallic, with black interior. Purchased a couple of years ago now with just 45,000km on it, we’ve added 15,000km in that time and have sorted some common issues, performed a few upgrades, been on a few drive days and developed an obsession with black… My wife and I are both architects, which means we only wear black turtle necks and only drive black cars Factually though, there do seem to be quite a few designers and creatives here in Sydney into 964s, which is great. Wonder if this is the case elsewhere?… It’s a street car so never intended to be a hardcore racer, but still it does get some track time. Here’s the list of mods done and coming, enjoy. - Bilstein HDs - Eibach Springs - RS Clutch and LWF - SW Chip for LWF (what a difference this made, no stalling!) - Turbo Engine Mounts (will upgrade to WEVO next) - Cargraphic Cup Pipe (for us this is just the right balance sound wise) - Street Wheels - Colour matched RUF Speedline 8x17 and 10x17 (did I mention they’re black?) - Track Wheels - Cup 1's (for now…) - Aero Mirrors - 993 Door Handles (painted but not yet installed) - Cult Werk Front Cooling Ducts - Cult Werk Front Splitter (not yet installed) - Cult Werk RS Rear Bumper Section (painted but not yet installed, not sure to do it?) - Appbiz RS Door Cards - VDO Stereo & Polk Speakers - Autowatch Immobiliser Next on the list are seats, rear wiper delete and want to investigate sway bar upgrades… And here on collection day couple of years ago
  21. Hi everyone, This is my first day as a forum member but my second post. The first post was to congratulate another forum member for buying the same red 964 'RS' i was looking at for myself. His purchase has left me with a bit of an issue - I have been looking for the last 2-3 months for a decent 964 C2 with a manual box, but haven't found one I'd be happy buying - or that doesn't need a bucket load of work to be daily-drivable. I've spent a long time dreaming, researching, understanding the car and why I'd prefer a 964 over an SC or a post '95 993, and I think it just comes down to the fact that they're a demonstration of what Porsche was, and where it is now - the 964 really marked the change and I think its a great model to own, plus I've driven a few and they're great fun. But I've only just got in to a position where I can actually buy one with the confidence I can ride the ups (more) and downs (less) of owership - and have the time to put into the car and make it my own. So if any of you have any advice, feedback, knowledge of a good car or your own experience of owning a 964 it would be great to hear from you. Cheers, AL911
