The Porsche 911 is easily considered one of the most coveted sports cars of all time. Its lengthy history extends over 50 years of production and to this day, the iconic design lines are still utilized. Throughout the 911’s long life, it has steadily evolved becoming more refined but still maintaining the essence of its roots. The air-cooled era spawned some of Porsche’s greatest creations and by 1989, they released what is referred to as the 964 series. The 964 was a milestone in the 911 lineage, as it saw a variety of technologies that were yet to be integrated as standard features in addition to having a new, re-engineered chassis. In terms of major cosmetic changes, the 964 received redesigned front and rear bumpers for better aerodynamics and an electronic, self-deploying rear wing for added downforce at high speeds. ABS and power steering were made a standard feature for the 964, as well as a 3.6L flat-six that propelled the car to 60mph in 5.5 seconds. Porsche did not stop there because one could either choose a rear-wheel-drive platform in the Carrera 2 or opt for four-wheel drive in the Carrera 4. The 964 was often overlooked by Porsche aficionados until the recent appreciation of air-cooled Porsches which sparked new interest in the once undervalued 964.
The “America Roadster” variant traces its roots back to the 1950s when US importer, Max Hoffman aimed to introduce an open-top, sporting 356 variant to the promising US market by offering the now highly coveted, 356 America Roadster. Only 25 were produced but this limited production run validated America’s desire for more offerings. Soon after, the Speedster was born. In a stroke of marketing brilliance, Porsche released the 964 America Roadster in 1992, 40 years after the debut of the 356 America Roadster and right before the release of the 964 Speedster. They paid further homage to the 356 version by adding a “0” to the end of the 356 America Roadster production figures to produce a total of 250 964 America Roadster variants for the US with even less (about 54) produced for the 1993 model year. As in the 356, the 964 Roadster was meant to be a performance-focused, open-top car. Breaking it down further, one will realize that the America Roadster is essentially a 964 Turbo-Look/Widebody in convertible form. It featured upgraded turbo brakes, suspension, 17-inch cup wheels, and rear seat deletion. These models now present as an opportunity to own a highly coveted, limited production, air-cooled Porsche for under $100,000.

The 911 America Roadster on offer here, chassis number WP0CB2963PS460567 with engine number 62P04196 shows 65,971 Miles and is fitted with its original engine according to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity on file. This example is finished in rare “Black Metallic” (Z8) over Cashmere Beige/Black. Notable factory options include Supple Leather Heated Seats, Limited Slip Differential, Full Power Seats, Cruise Control, Center Caps with Porsche Crest, and more. In referencing the clean Carfax, we know that this car was likely sold new in New York and was subsequently owned in New Jersey, Illinois, then finally in Ohio from 2000-2015. The Carfax shows a consistent mileage and service log. Though service records on-hand are minimal, we do know that in 2006, the clutch was replaced at 45,152 miles by a European Specialty shop in Ohio. The current consignor purchased this example in 2015 and has used it sparingly since then as it resided among many other air-cooled Porsches. Upon its arrival at LBI Limited, we deemed it necessary to perform a full service commissioned by Leading Edge Autosport of West Chester, PA to address a multitude of items including spark plug wires, fluids change, drive belts, front brake pads/rotors replacement, top service and more for a total of $3,655.72. Today, this car presents in excellent condition as an inviting driver ready for use. We have personally put ~100 miles on this example and can attest to its excellent drivability. Here is an opportunity to own a limited production, air-cooled Porsche with historically significant roots, in a beautiful and rare color for under $100,000.
Included in the sale are the owner’s manuals, tools, jack, spare, air pump, and COA.
