The Porsche presents very well both inside and out, suggesting meticulous care over its lifetime.

The characteristic “road rash” found on the hood and lower front area(s) of the 911 does not exist and only a few minor chips are noted.

The real taillights show minimal fading but the remainder of the lenses and trim show very well. Wheels are in good condition with the left and right rear showing a few minor scratches from curbing. Tires are high quality Michelin Pilots.

The dash does not have any cracks and the steering wheel, gauges and other interior bits are in very good order. The original radio has been replaced but the factory speakers remain in place. The extensive photographs reflect the car’s condition including the body, paint, engine compartment, interior, forward compartment and underside.

The 911 has never been abused, tracked, or neglected by its responsible, mature owner.

The brakes are excellent and stop the car straight and sure with a functional hand brake. The steering is responsive and light as was typical on the 911’s of the era. There is no noise in the drive-line, the clutch engages properly and does not slip, chatter or exhibit any problems. The cars comes with receipts and registration slips that document repairs and, most important, the cars life-time California lineage that support the care that the car has received over the years.

The Porsche 964 is the internal company designation for the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between 1998 and 2005. At its debut, the 964 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction. The most significant change with this new iteration is the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled engine. Progressively stringent noise regulations, environmental concerns, a higher expectation for refinement and a high-performance 4 valve per cylinder engine made the switch necessary. Other changes include a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a re-designed interior. Edmunds called the 964 variant the “most advanced car” that the company had built to date.

The Porsche 964 was an all-new design made byHarm Lagaay; the first new 911 that didn’t carry over significant components from a previous variant. It had all new body work, interior and drive-train. The Porsche 964 replaced thePorsche 993.

Porsche installed a single engine in all models of its 1990 Carrera, a rear-mounted 3.4-liter displacement H6 engine. An H-style engine puts the cylinderbanksin opposition to one another; in this case, three per side to form an “H” appearance. This engine consisted of an aluminum alloy block and heads with a bore of 3.78 inches and a stroke of 3.07 inches.

Porsche outfitted this engine with dual overhead cams and installed its “VarioCam” variable valve control fuel-injection system. Each cylinder used four valves, for 24 valves total. This engine cranks out 296 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 4,600 rpm, with a compression ratio of 11.3:1.

The first 964s were available as a coupeorcabriolet(convertible) initially with rear wheel, or later, with four-wheel drive. Porsche built the 911 coupe and convertible in a 2+2 configuration that seats four. The front bucket seats offered 38 inches of headroom, 41.6 inches of leg room and 51.7 inches of shoulder room. Convertible models offered a cargo space of 3.5 cubic feet.

The 1990 Porsche 911 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and cross the ¼-mile mark in 13.3 seconds with a speed of 103 or 105 mph, depending on the drive configuration. It can hit a top speed of 172 mph.

The rear-wheel drive 911 rates 16-17 mpg during city driving and 25 mpg on the highway, with the automatic transmission models earningthe slightly lower city driving fuel rating.

As always, we recommend that you carefully review the seller's background for any collector car being sold over the Internet. It is important to ask yourself a number of questions including, but not limited to:

·How long have they been in business?

·How much experience do they have with collector cars?

·How many positive collector car vehicle sales have they completed (positive eBay feedback)?

·How detailed/complete is the description of the vehicle?

·Do the photos show details of the interior, exterior, top, chrome, etc. or are they simply "glamour shots" taken from a distance?

·Does the seller have a Surety Bond to protect the financial transaction?

·What about insurance, licensing by the state, and a local business license?

·Does the seller (if a business) have any DMV (Motor Vehicle) complaints and/or other history of legal action, grievances?

·Does the seller enjoy a favorable local and national/international reputation?

·Can the seller assist with funding sources, transport and out of state/country sales?


·We have been the same, small, California town for over 25 years. We operate a small "brick & mortar", indoor showroom, and specialize in the sale, consignment, and purchase of sports, high performance and specialty vehicles of all types. We have a particular interest in sports cars and unique vehicles.

·The majority of our vehicles come from local, private owners and collectors, and many were sold new in California. We appreciate that rust free cars, with excellent documentation and history are especially attractive to our buyers both locally, and around the country. As a result, we do not purchase our collectible cars from "distressed" sales, such as wholesale auctions, salvage sales, or lien sales. We do not sell vehicles with salvage titles, or those that have a history of significant accident damage or repair.

·We have sold hundreds of unique, classic and collectible vehicles and regularly deal with buyers that have not had the experience of purchasing a large (both physically and monetarily) item on eBay, or through an Internet source.We strive to achieve 100% positive feedback on all vehicle sales from customers around the globe and is a reflection of our commitment to accurate, complete, and thorough vehicle descriptions.

·We have been shipping vehicles for years and have established excellent contacts that are not only high quality but very price competitive.We do not use brokers, terminal shipping or other discount methods.Call us or email for a quote directly to your home or office.

·Please review our feedback on eBay (user name Never22Many) representing over 975+ positive transactions to buyers all over the United States / World.

·We are fully insured, bonded, and licensed for collector car sales all over the United States/World.

·We frequently sell vehicles to out of State / out of country buyers, and will be glad to provide references for buyers in your area.

·In addition to the purchase price of the vehicle, California buyers are subject to sales tax, documentation fee, DMV transfer fees, and license and registration.Out of state buyers are responsible for the purchase price of the vehicle with any local fees, taxers, etc. being paid in their respective state.IMPORTANT NOTE: If the vehicle is delivered or driven in California, applicable California sales tax, license, registration and transfer fees will be assessed per California law.

We ask that prospective buyers consider our eBay history/feedback, standing in the community, length of time in business, and other factors when purchasing a collectible vehicle from Classic Cars Ltd.

·Minor cosmetic issues/flaws may be present on every vehicle (regardless of cost) including small chips, nicks, scratches, etc. that can be seen on even the best restoration, or even a relatively new, used "pre-owned" vehicle.Also, ownership of a collectible / specialty vehicle is more enjoyable if the owner is familiar with the "realities" of these unique cars.Unlike more modern day vehicles, these cars require regular, ongoing care/maintenance and some mechanical knowledge, patience, and understanding can make the experience considerably more pleasant.That said, collector / "specialty" car owners will tell you (emphatically) that they love their cars and wouldn't trade them for anything!!
