Hi to all. I'm a new mwmber am I'm looking for a 964 series 911 coupe either a 1990, or 91'. I'm looking for a daily driver. Any reccos? Anything to stay away from . This is my first Porsche and I want to stay away from turbo if possible (own an Audi allroad tip 2.7T bi-turbo).

Thanks in Advance.

Hi and welcome. I remember the early in the first couple of years the 964 came out there were some rather severe oil leakage problems. There was also a problem with the clutch flywheel; and lastly there was a deteoriation of the belt coupling the 2 distributors caused by poor ventilation. There was an after market vent tube that fixed the latter problem. I think by MY 93 the those problems were taken care of. I would prefer a MY 93/94 over the earlier years.

So check maintenance records carefully on any early 964, and good luck! :)

I bought 2 964s. a 1990 C2 in 1996 and a 1994 Speedster in 1998. The former had 28K and the Speedster had 12K. Personally, I would not buy a Porsche with over 40K on odo, and I would make certain all major maintenance periods were completely checked.

A friend of mine named Adrian Streather wrote a book on the 964 series and he might be able to help. His book is on the market now. www.adrianstreather.com Also, Bruce Anderson (bruce1485@aol.com) might be able to give you some specific advice on a particular model year. At least they could explain the problems with that series much more intelligently than I could. Good luck! :)
