The dream: To own a beautiful 911 964 coupe. I know customers who have waited until they were 70 years old before they bought one. Overall the 911 964 Carrera is a great, great car to drive, find one that’s good and you will love it. I believe the 964 is overlooked and can represent a great buy. But these early 90’s Porsche can cause grief. You don’t buy a Porsche 911 unless you have a real passion for cars and that’s where many come unstuck.
The reality: I have that passion too and that’s exactly how you can get into trouble with Porsche! It’s happened to me before and I see it all the time with new owners. Nowadays when I buy a Porsche 964 I leave less to luck, because I have learnt over the years of buying, selling, inspecting and rejecting exactly what makes a good 911 964 and what makes a bad buy. This is what I reveal in the Porsche 911 Buying Guides.
Don’t make a mistake. Ensure you buy a good example, I promise you it’s worth the effort. The difference between an average Porsche 964 Carrera and a really good one is massive and never reflected adequately in the price. I have found some absolutely great cars. I have also seen plenty of ‘average’ examples that barely give you half the qualities that they should, these ought to be avoided. I have the experience of buying hundreds and in my guides I will show you the step by step process I utilise to buy good Porsche 911 964 and avoid the lemons.
"Despite my mechanical background I consider your notes a great tool even for professionals. Thanks to it I bought a superb 964, (07.93, 41000km). I would never had checked thoroughly that fast without your notes."
