1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet

Offered for sale is an absolutely stunning, 2k original mile, echanically strong 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet finished in iconic Guards Red over special-order supple Classic Grey leather with red leather piping to sample, n uncommon and particularly appealing livery. As mechanically tight and sound as it is beautiful, his example has always been well cared for and comes with an entirely clean CARFAX report. Delivered new to its first owner by Negherbon Porsche in Oakland, A (now Porsche of Livermore), he car would stay in the San Francisco Bay Area until the original owner moved to Nevada in 2001, ringing the car with him. It was subsequently sold locally to its second owner in 2002 and his tenure with the car would last for another eight years, efore it was sold to its third and most recent owner, lso a Nevada resident, n 2010.

The Guards Red finish is striking, n excellent condition throughout cloaking an entirely straight body with correct and consistent panel gaps and fits. The finish is marred by only incredibly minor imperfections, one of which are significant enough to appear in any of the pictures and none of which detract from the car’s considerable overall appeal. The glass and rubber is all in excellent condition, s are the original five spoke wheels with colored crest center caps, rapped in nearly new Yokohama tires

The car’s interior is equally as clean, he original Classic Grey leather seats with distinctive special-order red piping, arpets and interior panels all showing only minimal wear, ommensurate with what one would expect from a well cared for 42k mile car. The car was optioned from the factory with desirable “Raffleder” gathered leather seats (code 980, lso known as “supple” leather), eather piping to sample (red), djustable heated seats (driver and passenger side), n-board computer, utomatic speed control and an amplifier system. The original Blaupunkt radio has been replaced with a high quality Alpine unit (with auxiliary plug in capability) and Infinity speakers, owever nothing else on the car is custom or aftermarket. Lastly, he original soft top was recently replaced with a German canvas top and is consequently in excellent condition, s is the original boot cover.

The car is mechanically excellent, he original, umbers matching 3.6L engine starting immediately, dling consistently and pulling strongly and smoothly through each of the 5-speed transmission’s gears. The compression is excellent across all cylinders, he car drives and brakes straight and true and the road manners are exceptional. The car is entirely comfortable cruising down the highway or tooling around town, ut Porsche’s legendary handling also becomes abundantly clear when pushing the car through back-road corners. Everything works as it should, ncluding the power spoiler, ower soft top, ower seats, eated seats, n-board computer, ower windows and air conditioning (which does blow cold), aking this a truly turn-key example that needs nothing to be enjoyed but an appreciative new owner.

Over the last ten years the 964 model reached the bottom of its depreciation curve and has been quickly appreciating, aving recently joined its predecessors in the ranks of timeless Porsche classics. This should come as no surprise, onsidering that between 1989 ½ and 1994 (the 964’s production run), he U.S. economy was dealing with a recession, ielding considerably lower production numbers compared to its 3.2L predecessor and 3.4L successor. Further, he 964 is exceptionally comfortable compared to earlier 911s, et it still retains that visceral, rin-inducing Porsche ride quality and air-cooled engine tone. There will inevitably come a time when enthusiasts’ will wish that they’d acquired a 964 at 2015 prices, aking this an excellent opportunity for weekend enthusiasts and collectors alike to acquire a low mileage, echanically strong, osmetically beautiful example finished a rare-special order livery and outfitted with desirable options.

We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we’re selling, ut we’re enthusiasts, ot experts, nd we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding, s the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.
