The Original: The Porsche 911 (964) RWB Red Sakura

The Porsche 911 (964) is a classic of the German automotive industry and was built from 1989 to 1994. This generation of the Porsche 911 was based on the work of designer Bott and engineer Pinkert. The vehicle represented a significant development in the history of the Porsche 911 and incorporated many technical innovations. The 964 was the first 911 to be offered with a standard all-wheel drive (Carrera 4) and featured revised suspension, improved ABS, and optional Tiptronic automatic transmission.

The 3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer engine was the heart of the 911 (964), producing 250 horsepower (184 kW). This power combined with improved aerodynamics and reduced weight allowed the Porsche 911 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 5.5 seconds, making it one of the most sought-after models of its time. The predecessor, the 911 Carrera 3.2, did not have the same technical features and innovations as the 964, highlighting the significance of this generation in Porsche's history.
