1994 Turbo S Flatnose

As Porsche wound down production of its 964 Turbo in late 1993, a final batch of uncommitted chassis were sent to Porsche Exclusive for conversion to ‘S’ specification. Fitted with the ‘Works Increased Horsepower’ X88 engine option rated at 385HP and hand formed front and rear quarter panels, replete with pop up headlights, these chassis became one of the most rare and most coveted 911 models Porsche has produced for the US market to date. The final air cooled single Turbo model to be built by Porsche.

Porsche issued only 66 examples worldwide with the ‘Flatnose’ or ‘Flachbau’ option reminiscent of the Porsche 935 and prescient to the forth coming 993. Of these 39 units were North American models designated by the factory as the ‘1994 Turbo S Model X85’. The rarity of the model, and the fact that it is the very last of the single turbo production Porsche’s, makes the X85 a very special investment grade supercar.

The ‘Flachbau’ option, which as part of its specification included the X88 ‘Turbo S’ engine, 3.8 RS front splitters, a special Turbo S whale tail and polished ‘Speedline for Porsche’ 18” wheels, added $60,179 to the Turbo’s $99,000 base price.

 

 

This example is unique in that it is the vehicle that started the 964 Turbo S, and following that the 1990’s air cooled turbo collector’s market, collector renaissance through the research, writings and websites of Mark Smith, who is the current owner.

The second owner of chassis 480463, Smith purchased the car in 2000 from the original owner who had spec’d the car as the most optioned production 1994 Porsche built worldwide, with an MSRP that was unheard for Porsche up to that time, $188,706. While only a photocopy of the original window sticker remains, it documents many of the 84 individual option codes fitted to this example. Including $9,424 in special options including the cost to air freight the car from the Porsche factory to its North American dealer destination, Silver Star Motors in Long Island, NY.

 

 

This is the only example in the world delivered from the factory with Black Metallic paint and Matador Red interior. While no longer 100% original paint, the paint is amazing and in superb condition, accompanied by a clean Autocheck report which can be viewed on the SC Sage website.

Currently fitted with factory carbon fiber and black carpet (the original dark rootwood components and a complete factory cut Matador Red carpet set come with the car) complimenting the very rare Matador Red full leather interior. As was the case with a limited number of cars coming from the ‘Exclusive’ department, 480463 was fitted with the factory cell phone center console and Tech Art speaker enclosures. The car comes with all original factory parts as delivered as well as many rare extra factory parts which are either installed on the car or in storage.

 

 

Uniquely, this car came from the factory with its Speedline wheel centers painted to match in Black Metallic. Adding to its value, these wheels are off the car and fitted with one of the only known sets of 18” Yokohama A-008P tires remaining in existence, other than as might be found on another, originally fitted 1994 Turbo S – as these tires were only ever fitted by Porsche to the 1994 Turbo and Turbo S.

It is supplied with its factory tool roll, spare tire, and road-side work gloves. Additionally, it is accompanied by its Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity, a copy of its original window sticker, 911 Turbo 3.6 manual and books in their original portfolio and the factory radio card. Uninstalled parts include the original Panasonic cell phone and the original radio/CD with trunk fitted six disc CD changer.

With only ~1,500 miles per year (42,895 miles), the vehicle is in top condition and fully cleaned and refurbished as required. All parts on the car are original Porsche, and all factory delivered parts which have been changed out (e.g. currently fitted with Sport Bilstein suspension, H&R Springs and 18” Fikse Mach V wheels in Black satin), accompany the car along with an extensive number of very rare factory spares.

 

 

An absolutely amazing car to drive, with the kick in the pants only the final edition of Porsche’s air cooled, single turbo, engine can deliver. No Porsche collection, particularly of factory Turbo models, can be complete without the essential X85 in the portfolio.
