The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson through January 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers.
From 1986 until 1989 Porsche pioneered the Cup series, a one-make race series using modified 944 Turbos. However, with the advent of the 964 model in 1989, the Carrera Cup 911 race series was born and debuted first in Germany in 1991. This was joined soon after by a French Carrera Cup series and in 1992 by Japan.
Racing engineer Roland Kussmaul pared the Carrera 2 down by removing carpets, all sound deadening, designing a special plastic induction chamber instead of the original aluminum, (saving 1.2kgs!) discarding the blower fan and commissioning lightweight alloy wheels that saved a total of 11kgs. All these modifications were sufficient to give a dry weight of 1,120kgs. This, coupled with a 265bhp blueprinted engine, lightweight clutch, revised gear ratios, limited slip diff provided drivers in the Carrera Cup with a pure race car.
The international Porsche Supercup has since gone from strength to strength and has supported Formula 1 racing, Touring cars and DTM to just name a few of the racing series around the world that the Carrera Cup series has been involved in.
A total of 297 964 Carrera Cup cars were produced from 1990 to 1993. The first two years saw the Cup cars based on the standard Carrera 2 with 1992-93 models reworked, based on the RS N/GT and utilizing larger 18 inches three piece Speedline wheels, the change made to run 18 inch Pirelli slicks.
