Porsche 964 C2: An Overview

The Porsche 964 C2 is a variant of the Porsche 911 sports car. It was manufactured between 1989 and 1994, with a total of 63,762 units produced. The car was designed by Benjamin Dimson and assembled in Stuttgart, Germany.

In the model year 1989, the new generation of the 911 came onto the market at the same time that the G model was discontinued. The type 964 911 Carrera 4 was made up of 85% new parts but largely retained the classic shapes of its predecessor and was available in Coupé, Targa and Cabriolet bodyshell styles.

Despite extensive similarities in design, the aerodynamics of the 964 were significantly improved compared with the G model. The new, rounded front and rear sections and an automatically extending rear spoiler contributed to these improved aerodynamics.

From model year 1990, the 911 Carrera 2 – an identical rear-wheel drive version and the first model with Tiptronic – was launched, and from model year 1991 a Turbo variant was also available.

Carzwerk Story

The Porsche 911 series is known for its iconic sports cars, and one model that stands out in this lineage is the Porsche 964 C2. Introduced in the late 1980s and produced until the mid-1990s, the Porsche 964 C2 is a beloved classic that combines performance and elegance in a way that few other vehicles can match. In this comprehensive guide, we will take a detailed look at the Porsche 964 C2 – its design, features, performance, and variants.

Key Features of Porsche 964 C2

The Porsche 964 C2 is a sports car that features a 2-door coupe body style. It has a rear engine, rear-wheel drive layout (RR layout). The car is powered by a 3.3L M30/69 turbo H6 engine, or optionally, a 3.6L M64/01, 02, 03 H6 engine. The car also came with a choice of transmissions – a 5-speed Getrag G50 manual, a 4-speed Tiptronic automatic, or a 5-speed 4WD Getrag G64 manual.

The 964 C2 stands out for its significant styling revisions compared to previous 911 models. The most noticeable change is the more integrated bumpers. The car was the first to be offered with Porsche’s Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as options.

Porsche 964 C2: The Variants

The 964 Carrera 2 and 4 were the two main variants of the Porsche 964. The Carrera 2 was a rear-wheel drive model, while the Carrera 4 was an all-wheel-drive variant. Both variants were available as a coupe, Targa, or Cabriolet.

The 964 Carrera was the last generation to be sold with the traditional removable Targa roof. A new naturally aspirated engine, known as the M64, was used for the 964 models. The engine had a flat-6 displacement of 3.6 liters.

The Turbocharged Versions

The Porsche 964 model also featured a Turbo version. Introduced in March 1990, the 964 Turbo succeeded the 930 model. The Turbo model used the 3.3-liter engine from the 930, but with several minor revisions that made the engine smoother, less prone to turbo lag, and more powerful. The total output was 320 PS (235 kW; 316 hp) at 5,750 rpm.

In 1992, the Turbo S Leichtbau (light build) was introduced. It had a standard Turbo model modified to produce 381 PS (280 kW; 376 hp), making the Turbo S one of the fastest cars on the road.

In 1993, Porsche released the 964 Turbo 3.6, featuring a KKK K27 turbocharged version of the 3.6-liter M64 engine. This model was produced only for the 1993/1994 model years, making it one of the rarest and most sought-after Porsches produced since the 959.

The car’s engine was an air/oil-cooled, horizontally opposed, dry-sump lubricated, rear-mounted unit. The engine displacement was 3,600 cc (220 cu in), and it had six cylinders. The engine’s compression ratio was 11.3:1, and it had an electronic fuel injection system, a DME controller, and twin-spark with knock regulation.
