Hit The Track With This 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2

Damn that name is a mouthful. But oh well. We can forgive it because of how awesome the car itself is. This 1990 supercar has all the bells and whistles you could ask for plus a few extra aftermarket add-ons.

If you’re looking for your next track car and have some extra (thousands) of dollars burning a hole in your pocket, then you should probably take this seriously. If you’re like the rest of us, then you can simply enjoy the cool factor of this car. Maybe daydream a little that you were behind the wheel. We promise not to tell your boss that you were distracted from work. But honestly who can blame you? This car is awesome.

Body Shop

The original body was already in excellent condition when it met the body shop. We certainly aren’t mad. The upgrades that this car have been given transform it from a nice car to an eye-catching one.

On the outside, the body received a windows-out repaint after installation of steel fender flares. The car also got new fiberglass bumpers, side skirts, and an MA Shaw deck lid with a ducktail spoiler. Vinyl Martini racing graphics have been applied to the exterior as well for an additional flare. Up front, you’ll find Cibie rally lights mounted to the hood.

Under The Hood

Though the engine is a replacement, we can’t be mad. The 3.6L flat-six was built by Squire’s Autowerke of Bellevue, Washington. It has about 16 years of service to its record. During that time, it has been fitted with a Fabspeed dual exhaust system, K&N air filter, and a new oil cooler and lines.

Power rushes to the rear wheels through a G50 5-speed manual transaxle. New spark plugs, wires, and belts ensure you’ll be running problem-free.

The modified 964 has been driven approximately 22,000 miles by the current owner and comes with a clean record, service records, and results from a PPI.

The Turning Points

You’ll be riding pretty in this Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe. Thanks to 18” BBS E88 wheels wearing Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

Suspension modifications give you a smoother ride than the original car could provide. These include adjustable KW Club Sport coilovers and a Racing Dynamics front strut bar. The brakes feature red calipers and have recently been serviced.

Inside The Cockpit

If you think the outside of this car is cool, then you’re going to love the interior. Perhaps one of the most unique features are the Recaro Pole Position seats equipped with Sparco harnesses. Behind you is a blue-painted roll-bar from 425 Motorsports. You’ll also find Rennline floor boards, an aftermarket shift knob and a MOM Prototipo steering wheel.

On the dash, Stock VDO instrumentation includes a 180-mph speedometer, a tachometer with 6,800 rpm redline, and a 6-digit odometer that shows 174k miles. Sure, this car has seen lots of road. But there’s nothing wrong with a little experience.

A modern Sony head unit replaces the factory stereo.

 

From inside to outside, we love this car. It is clear that things can (and do) get better with age. This Porsche 911 Carrera 2 certainly proves the point. Learn More
