This 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo is powered by a turbocharged 3.3-liter flat-six mated to a five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential, and it is finished in black over black leather. Equipment includes 17″ Cup wheels, a power sunroof, air conditioning, cruise control, power-adjustable front seats, and a fixed rear spoiler. Porsche Cup 17″ wheels are mounted with Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires measuring 205/50 up front and 255/40 at the rear. The Turbo features uprated brakes compared to the standard 964, including larger calipers and cross-drilled rotors at each corner. 

In 1990 Porsche introduced a Turbocharged version of the 964 series. This car is sometimes mistakenly called 965 (this type number actually referred to a stillborn project that would have been a hi-tech turbocharged car in the vein of the 959). For the 1991 through 1993 model years, Porsche produced the 964 Turbo with the 930s proven 3.3-liter engine, improved to have a power output of 320 hp. 1994 brought the Carrera 2/4’s 3.6 L engine, now in turbocharged form and sending a staggering 355 hp to the rear wheels. With the 993 on the way, this car was only produced through 1994 and remains rather rare.
