PORSCHE 964 the modern classic
The Porsche 964, as it was called internally, was an exceptional member of the 911-family with unique characteristics. It was a bridge between the old and the new and benefitted from the best of both worlds. The 964 still had the classic 911-profile of the very first 911, introduced as the 901 in 1963. Now, this bodywork was cleverly redesigned below the bumper-line, taking the 964-design right into the nineties. The most important novelty though, was underneath the skin. It combined the classic shape with a modern driveline and, in case of the Carrera 4, an innovative all-wheel drive system. Added to this were the usual features of its day, like ABS brakes, power steering, airbags, central locking and a decent heating system. All of this was propelled by a powerful air cooled flat-six coupled to a perfect shifting transmission. It was Porsche’s new 911 for years to come and could even be called ‘the modern classic’.

‘Porsche 964 the modern classic’ is a hard-back full-colour book (245 x 245 mm), written in English and contains 344 pages with over 850 photos, including concept drawings, prototypes and many unpublished factory photos, provided by Jens Torner of the Porsche Museum Archive.
With foreword by the lead exterior designer of the Porsche 964, Benjamin Dimson, who also provided valuable information. This book is published with kind permission of Porsche AG and covers all aspects of the 964-series:

964 design
testing and pilot series
all different 964 models
racing in the Carrera Cup
racing in the GT-series
964 police car

and more…

About the author(s)"My name is Paul Koebrugge from the Netherlands and I have always been a petrolhead.

I have combined my profession, graphic designer, with my interest or rather my obsession for classic automobiles.

Ten years ago I published my first book on the Alfa Romeo 'Alfa 75': 'Alfa 75 & Milano: driven to be different'. It turned out to be a comprehensive book on this sporty Italian saloon and it was very well received.

After trading in my Alfa 75 3.0 V6 for my childhood dream car, a Porsche 911, I felt the urge to write a book on this Porsche 964, as it was known internally. I began to work on this project three years ago. With information provided by the lead exterior designer of the 964, Benjamin Dimson, and with the cooperation of Jens Torner of the Porsche Museum Archive in Zuffenhausen, I have tried to create the most dedicated book on this unique sports car. I hope you all will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it!"
