Very rare Porsche 964 turbo is for sale by Hexagon

Hexagon is offering one of only 12 right-hand-drive 964 Turbos in rare ‘Flatnose’ guise for sale.

Flatnose models were produced by Porsche to mark the end of the 964’s life, with just 76 made worldwide. Car at Hexagon has covered just 630 miles and features both the X84 ‘Flatnose’ body package and 385bhp X88 Turbo S engine.

In August 1993, as the very last 964 models were coming off the production line, Porsche produced a final and limited special series of 76 Exclusive Department-built Turbo Flachbau (‘Flatnose’) vehicles.

The X84 body package included front wings and pop-up headlights derived from the 968, while the modified front spoilers also had air intakes for cooling and the rear wheel housings had air intake shafts similar to those of the 959.

As well as the X84 body package Porsche also made the enhanced X88 engine package available too. The same 385bhp 3.6-litre flat six-cylinder engine as the Turbo S, it features an enlarged turbocharger, modified camshafts, valve timing, cylinder heads, inlet manifolds and intermediate flanges, an extra oil cooler and four-pipe exhaust system.

The car at Hexagon’s new flagship Finchley showroom features both the X84 and X88 packages. Painted metallic black with black leather interior, it has covered just 630 miles having been part of a private collection for many years. Until now, it has never been offered for sale.

Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics, said: “At the time, only a select few were offered the ‘Flatnose’ models – they weren’t publicised, they were almost ‘under the counter’. Not only is this incredible 964 possibly the nearest thing to a brand-new Porsche 964 Turbo, it is also one of the rarest and most important time-warp Porsches we’ve ever had the pleasure of offering for sale. A true collectors’ item.”
