In January 1989 Porsche unveiled the new Type 964 Carrera 4 to the world, featuring Porsche’s new all-wheel-drive system. With eight years of intensive development and with fewer than twenty percent of the parts carried over from the previous-generation 911, the Carrera 4 was hailed by Road and Track as the best handling Porsche road car ever built. Can one ever forget Porsche’s first painted and integrated bumpers and rocker panels?
And that 3.6-liter engine with 247 horsepower was almost irresistible as I stared through the window of the Porsche showroom, fresh out of college and without a job. That $69,500 price tag was already insurmountable and when you added special paint, leather interior, a CD player, you soon approached $80,000. Holly cow! I would never be able to afford a C4.
That was then and this is now.
Here is the only chance you will ever have to buy a BRAND NEW 101-mile 1989 Carrera 4, complete with a 1989-only special paint in Forest Green. We believe this car is truly the rarest C4 on the planet. This car is virtually brand new, still in the wrapper, and as flawless as the day Porsche built it. You may not be 25 all over again but you will surely feel it behind the wheel. The good news is that the price has not changed much from the original MSRP, so you saved a ton of inflation losses by waiting 20 years to purchase your new Carrera 4.
