  1. 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. White 1990 (964) man C2 Coupe VIN: WP0zzz96ZLS402763 Build date: 1/11/89 Delivery Date: 26/5/90 via Hamiltons Melbourne Scott
  2. (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.
  3. 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!)
