Porsche 964 Turbo: Rolling towards the end of the quarantine


The de-escalation phases reminds us to genealogies from Porsche. A set of figures and specifications that you have to analyze first and then have them clear. And it is that, like diving for what can and cannot be done in each phase, investigate the history of Porsche requires a good effort of synthesis and clarification. In this sense, it should be noted that the Porsche Turbo 964 It is a 911 with all of the law. Specifically, the evolution endowed with that particular blow that appeared in the early 90s.

Listening to how this unit of the 964 Turbo rolls down the twisty Japanese roads, one gets long teeth thinking about how little we have left to go back to rolling as before. And it is that, whatever your classic, the important thing is enjoy it by linking curves and straights in the way you enjoy it the most. However, the truth is that doing it with a Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo has to be wonderful. Especially if it is a 964 Turbo like this one.

Considered a continuist when it appeared in the late eighties, in reality the Porsche 964 Turbo has more than 80% new parts compared to its predecessor. A technological revolution diminished by lines that, rather, looked like a simple restyling of the previous model. However, over the years the aesthetics of the Porsche 964 Turbo is gaining, as is the fame of its 3.3 Turbo engine. And that's not to mention the Series S and 3.6 evolutions. Ingenuities capable of interpreting a symphony capable of reminding us how close we are to shooting again.


All lovers of that word that became a commercial fetish in the eighties and nineties know what lag is. That delay between the moment in which we press the accelerator and the moment in which the power is transmitted to the wheels. A short but intense waiting time where you can hold your breath and wait for the brutal kick that, at a certain number of laps, engines like the 964 Turbo can deliver.

In fact, in the case of the Porsche 964 Turbo this phenomenon is quite accentuated. And it is that, until not exceeding 3.200 rpm, it hardly feels anything special. However, it is from there and until 6.000 when the 964 Turbo experiences a concentration of gases strong enough to deliver full power through a catapult that leaves its passengers nailed in the seats. Like the one seen in the video of the Japanese Classicsracer.

A feeling that, along with many others, we will feel again as we progress through the de-escalation and we are allowed to return to the roads. Something that many of you are waiting for while you update your classic day by day in the garage, whether or not it is a Porsche 964 Turbo as spectacular as the one we have heard in the video.

Finally, if you have been wanting 911 Turbo, we invite you to read the test we did of this unit in the mountains of Madrid.

Through the news from La Escudería, we will travel the winding roads of Maranello listening to the roar of the Italian V12; We will travel Route66 in search of the power of the great American engines; we will get lost in the narrow English lanes tracking the elegance of their sports cars; We will speed up the braking in the curves of the Monte Carlo Rally and we will even get dusty in a garage while rescuing lost jewels.
