Total 911 issue 139 on sale now
In recent years – on both the 997 and 991 platforms – the Porsche 911 range has swollen to an almost incomprehensible size. However, despite filling almost every available sports car niche, the today’s Neunelfer line-up still isn’t as specialised as the early Nineties.
During the 964’s reign, Zuffenhausen – often bolstered by the Exclusive Department – dreamt up a number of limited edition cars; some were designed as luxurious collector’s items, others were thoroughbred racing machines.
In Total 911 issue 139 – on sale in store and online from today – we bring you test drives from behind the wheel of two very different super rare Porsche 964s: a 964 Carrera RS N/GT and the unusual 964 Turbo 3.6 Flatnose.
With histories just as enthralling as their respective driving experiences, we’ve got 13 pages dedicated to these rare Porsche 964s so you can learn everything there is to know about these mystical Zuffenhausen machines.
Elsewhere, we’ve got the ultimate buying guide if your looking for a Porsche 997.2 GT3 and a 2.7 Carrera v 2.7 Carrera RS head-to-head where we find out how two cars so similar on paper can provide such different drives out on the road.
There’s also a race simulator test drive with Total 911’s very own FIA WEC racer, Ben Barker, and a 50th anniversary celebration of the Porsche 911, Zuffenhausen’s original performance Neunelfer.
