Porsche 911 – The 90s models

3 Flares Twitter 1 Facebook 2 3 Flares ×

The Porsche 911 is a car I’m a big fan of and so figured it would be good to include something in the 90sblog on Porsche 911s – “The 90s models”

Porsche 911 964(1989 to 1993)

The 964 was the internal codename for this generation of the Porsche 911 that ran from 1989 to 1993.

Manufactured in Stuttgart, Germany the first variant of the 964 series introduced in1989 was the Carrera 4 which was all wheel drive and the first generation of the 911 to be offered with Porsche’s Triptonic automataic transmission as an optional extra. The 964 variants which followed the introduction of the Carrera 4 were the Carrera 2, Carrera RS, Turbo & Turbo S and other Special Editions. Engines came in 3.3 and 3.6 sizes.Another first for this generation Porsche 911 was power steering & ABS braking.

Both the Carrera 4 and rear wheel drive Carrera 2 they were available in coupe, Targa and Cabriolet versions. The engine was a horizontal flat six cylinder 3.6 litre rear engine, top speed was 163 mph.

In 1992 introduced were the Carrera RS for Europe and for the US the RS America which continued into 1993 & 1994.

Porsche 911 993(1993 to 1998)

The successor the 964 series in late 1993, the 993 was the first Porsche 911 to have a manual six speed gearbox.

The Carerra Coupe/ Cabriolet models as with the previous 964 came in both 2 and 4 wheel drive versions with the 2 now dropped from the Carrera name for the rear wheel drive model. Production for this model ceased at the end of 1997.

The other variants in the 1993 series were the Targa, Turbo, Turbo S, Carrrera 4S/Carrera S, Carrera RS, GT2, Speedster & Turbo Cabriolet.

The engines sizes were 3.6 and for the Carrera RS 3.8.

This was the last generation of the Porsche 911 to have an air cooled engine.

Porsche 911 996(1998 to 2005)

Introduced in 1998, the most significant change was the introduction of a watercooled engine for the 911 after being in production for 34 years.
This was an all new design with new bodywork, interior and drivetrain in adition to the watercooled engine. There were no components from the previous generation carried over into this model.

The engines available were 3.4 and 3.6 sizes.

Variants included Carrera, Carrera 4/Carrera 4S, Targa, GT2/GT3, Turbo & Turbo S and other Special Editions as the 90s gave way to the new millenium. The 1996 was replaced by the 997 in 2005.

My choice if I had to pick any of the cars above would be the 964 Carrera 4 from 1990 and it would have to be in black. It’s because that’s what Hank Moody drives in Californication, a TV show I like but out of the scope of discussion in this blog as this show didn’t arrive until 2007 and the 90s blog hence the name is about the 90s.
