    WTB: 964 or 993

    Hi everyone,

    I’m looking to purchase either a 964 or 993 coupe. I’m open to either a C2 or C4. I’m willing to travel to find the correct car. If you’re looking to sell or know of a car for sale please let me know. Thanks!

    Might I suggest Pelican Parts or Rennlist, if you're willing to bring something up from the US? Lots of cars for sale on Pelican, for instance:

    Looking at the reaction on the Instagram feed, that 993 isn't going to last very long!

    I agree - the price is very fair, bordering on aggressive and positioned for a quick sale.

    And a quick sale it was.

    I've actually been getting the 993 itch lately, and have been hemming and hawing about putting my 964 C2 coupe up for sale in order to scratch it. It is red though, so perhaps not for Josh!

    I was over at Tunerworks this morning to see that 993, its an awesome car. It got scooped up by a dealer in Victoria last night, so it'll be back on the market at a higher price.

    Nostrathomas:
    haha, yeah I'm trying to avoid black and red, as I prefer blue, white and grey/silver but there are always exceptions. The 993 last night was black.

    Of course, definitely wait for the color combo you want... although if you're looking for a 964 C2 coupe, they tend to be rather rare on the market these days, so you have to be patient. Personally my favorite color for the 964 is Slate Grey.

    For the 993 it's Arctic Silver or Arena Red for me. Forest Green is quite nice too...but you don't see it very often (although one time I happened to test drive one that turned out to belong to Jarome Iginla of all people).

    The one thing I do love about my guards red, that it definitely stands out in the sea of grey that every car is these days. Pops nicely in photos too.

    You're correct when you say 964's don't come up for sale too often, I've only seen a couple this spring (white one in Vancouver and a red in Ontario).

    There is a forest green 993 for sale in Montreal I believe (with reddish interior).

    Thanks for posting an image of your car, it looks well cared for. How long have you owned it, and what kind of mileage does it have?

    Some food for thought on why 964’s (especially C2’s?) are now as rare as hens teeth: http://flatsixes.com/advise/singer-r...te-964-market/
