The Porsche 911 964 Speedster was the third iteration of the 'Speedster' name, succeeding the 1989 Carrera Speedster and the famous 356 Speedster of the 1950s. The third Speedster came in 1992 and was a Cabriolet model based upon the restyled and contemporary Type 964 of the era.
The 964 was a far more focused driver's car than its predecessor, serving as a hybrid of the 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet and a 964 RS. The Speedster was powered by an uprated 3.6 litre air cooled flat-six engine capable of delivering just shy of 250 bhp to the rear wheels through a choice of either a five-speed manual or four-speed Tiptronic transmission.
Just under 1,000 964 Speedsters were produced during the short 2 year production run, with 469 of those destined for North American distribution.
The car we are presenting is the much more desirable five-speed manual transmission and was delivered new to the USA in 1994 via Porsche Cars North America. It was later purchased by prolific British IndyCar Champion, Dario Franchitti in 2010 who kept and used the car in America until 2014 when he had it imported to the U.K to his home in Scotland where he continued to enjoy it to the present date.
The car sits today in brilliant condition, wearing its original Guards Red paintwork and showing under 20,000 miles on the clock. It maintains its original marketing brochure, spare key, and a healthy history file detailing the work undertaken on the car during its lifetime as well as a Certificate of Authenticity and a copy of the original sales invoice!
The 964 Speedster is truly a worthy addition to any Porsche collection and is the perfect car to enjoy open-top motoring during the summer months!
