1991 Porsche 911 Turbo
You are bidding on a low mileage, rare, 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo – paint to color car – 1 of 1
Please note: I have a clean and clear title. I listed the car as "reconstructed" because the car was in a "spin" accident 15 years ago. It was fixed by Porsche and I've owned her for 10 years or more. I have put a copy of the title in the picture section. Please review it.
My 911 Turbo has only 32,555 original miles.
Is there a more iconic Porsche than a 964 bodied, air cooled Turbo? If there is, I don’t know it. Head over to Singer.com and spend a minimum of $450,000 for a 964 bodied custom Porsche (or buy mine for much less).
Eight or more years ago when I bought this car – she was fast. Today I’d call her “current”. But not hypercar territory. I wasn’t then – and am not now, seeking super stardom. I love the pure manner of older Porsches. They are, at heart, drivable, toss-able and most of all, bullet proof. Pure air-cooled fun.
I am liquidating part of my collection and this Turbo must go. I have purchased a business (SaveUp.com) and sadly it’s taking all of my available cash (so you want to be an entrepreneur?).
There were only 3,660 Porsche Turbo’s built between 1991-92 worldwide. Of course less were brought into the US. Needless to say - she is rare.
The color is also very rare: Paint to Customer Color Match – L999 – which means that there is not another 1991 Turbo in this color. It was a special order customer selected match. Porsche can only say that it was custom and no color name is affixed to it.
Do I need to tell you – she is a beast? Wait for 3,500 rpm and then – hold on. Pray you are not in the middle of a corner when the wick is lit – because you’ll get sideways pretty darn quickly. Seasoned Turbo drivers (before 4wd and electronic gimmickry) well know that you need to be ever vigilant and expect this boost. With a large single K27 Turbo, there is enough turbo lag that you could lean over and find your favorite radio station, then resume your frenetic driving.
There is the on / off nature of vintage Turbo’s that makes them so much fun. Below 3,500 rpm – Volkswagen. Above 3,500 rpm – insanity. Early Porsche Turbo’s don’t have the work linear in their lexicon. Nope, it’ a light switch.
964 Turbo 3.3
I don’t drive my Turbo often, but when I do, I don’t worry about a stone chip or errant pebble. This car is meant to be driven. If you want a trailer queen, this may not be your car. Which isn’t to say that she isn’t very nice, she is. If you want a show car, look at my other auction – a low mileage 1976 Porsche 911S that our team restored. Best paint on any Porsche anywhere.
Back to the turbo – I took the car to the Porsche Exchange in Highland Park, Illinois (great shop) and they tweaked the ecu a bit. The car doesn’t have 320 hp any longer, more like 360. There is also an aftermarket exhaust on the car.
Other than that – stock. There isn’t much you can do to the 3.3 engine, without cooling it with water (if you want reliability). Or pulling it out and reworking it entirely.
The exterior is a 9/10. A few small chips – a minor scratch here and there.
You can see by the pictures that she is very nice, but I am particular. The interior is also very nice, tan with green piping. There is an aftermarket stereo in the car – it isn’t great and the sound is average. If you are listening to the radio – I suppose you miss the point of the air cooled engine entirely.
The clutch is heavy (meaning all 1991 Turbo clutches require a strong right leg) but in excellent condition. The transmission shifts perfectly. The engine runs amazingly – no issues at all (shouldn’t be at 33,000 miles). She comes onto boost with no issues. When the boost it at full spool, she sounds like an ape whose banana you just stole. Angry.
The sunroof and windows work perfectly. The rear seats have probably never been sat in (who can fit?).
There is a wooden shifter knob – very nice – an option.
The seats are leather and power.
There is a rear wiper ( I think it was standard on Turbos) works great
Sunroof (if you can find the switch – hint under the dash) works perfectly.
The rims are original and in great (but never perfect) condition.
The tires are in excellent condition. I’ve never replaced them.
The car tracks straight and true and brakes with the best of them. After all, she weighs only 3,276 lbs.
She is a five speed. You’ll wish there was another gear as she has more power and top speed if there was one. Very retro.
There is a sense of heft in the rear end. No matter how improved the 964 Turbo was over the previous version, there is the ever present rear bouncing – a product of the heavy engine and small wheelbase. The “bobbing” is the very essence of a vintage Porsche. She’ll do in excess of 168mph – but you won’t. Who has that kind of courage? The front end will life at higher speeds and the front end drifts in an unnerving way. Truly only the courageous or stupid need seek the top speed of this car.
