It’s been 30 years since the debut of the first Porsche 964. 30 years wears a lot on a car- rubber parts tend to dry out, mechanical parts have worn near their limits and the overall vehicle itself is tired. Upon request we refreshed this 1990 964 to give it a new lease on life.
The first order of business for this car was to revitalize the 3.6 motor with a full tune-up including a valve adjustment, plugs, fuel filter, and new air filter. The secondary muffler was replaced with a Scart swan neck. Following the tune up, we took to every part of the suspension to ensure proper handling. JRZ RS One coilovers all around featuring new top mounts in the front were installed. The front end received a RUF strut brace, Elephant Racing bump steer kit, essential RUF steer stop kit, refreshed control arms with new bushings, ball joints and wheel bearings while the rear received ERP spring plates. Eibach sway bars were added in both the front and rear of the car, joined with Elephant Racing drop links.
Once the suspension was addressed, we replaced the stock brakes with the Brembo GT brake kit. The standard silver paint was stripped off all 4 calipers and refinished in Porsche Acid Blue. The front fog lights were deleted and replaced with fully functional 964 CUP brake ducts.
Standard 964 comfort seats were substituted for full leather Recaro Pole Positions and black seat belts were swapped for Carrera RS Maritime Blue. Other interior changes featured in-house fabricated door cards with Maritime Blue OEM Porsche RS door pulls. Following the RS theme, a Porsche CUP steering wheel was added. The factory radio was replaced with a Bluetooth enabled Continental head unit.
With the addition of larger brakes, larger wheels were needed for clearance. The perfect match was a new 18" RUF wheel set wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport CUP 2 tires. The RUF logo on the center caps was color matched to keep the Porsche Acid Blue theme going. A RUF front spoiler was also added to enhance aero and aesthetics.
Less is more in the rear of any 911. The standard rear windshield and wiper were removed and replaced with a genuine OEM RS rear window that features thinner glass, no wiper hole, and no rear defogger. Appropriate action was taken on the rear parcel shelf by filling the wiper slot and deleting the speakers.
