Rare 1994 Porsche 964 911 Turbo 3.6 S Flachbau Up for Sale

The last time a Flachbau sold, it commanded just over one million dollars

Remember the mouthwatering lineup of cars that Jerry Seinfeld auctioned to new owners at this year's Amelia Island Concours? Well, one of those cars was a particularly rare 1994 Porsche 964 3.6 S Flachbau (Flat-nose). Forget the all-wheel-drive 993 Turbo; short of the Hen's Teeth 993 GT2, the 964 3.6 S is one of the most hardcore and special 911 variants to emerge from Stuttgart in the 1990s. If you were bummed about missing your shot at Seinfeld's example, there is another Flachbau for sale in London, boasting just 630 miles on the clock.

The Flachbau was a 911 cut from a different cloth. To start, the 964 Turbo's history is a convoluted one; The regular 964 Turbo that launched in 1991 carried a refined variant of the 3.3-liter turbocharged flat-six lifted from the outgoing 930 Turbo. In 1992, the 3.3-liter was offered in "S" trim, which bumped power up to 376 hp and 347 lb-ft of torque. The 964 Turbo received an upgraded turbocharged 3.6-liter for model years 1993 and 1994, and spit out an extremely impressive 360 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. Finally, Porsche engineers went a little wild and created the extremely fast and extremely expensive 1994 Porsche 964 Turbo 3.6 S.

This 964 Turbo 3.6 S provided the base for the 964 Flachbau. To create this striking 911, Porsche smoothed the front-end of the 3.6 S down to a wedge shape reminiscent of both the Porsche 959 and the 928. Power remained the 380 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque, with the special X88 engine code, routed to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.

Interested buyers spent an additional $60,000 on top of the $99,000 price tag back in 1994, of which $20,000 was required up front before the buyers even saw the car in person. Just 76 of these Flachbau 964s ever left the factory.

There isn't any published price for this particular car, so if you want to know, you will have to request the it privately. Suffice to say it won't be cheap. Seinfeld's Flachbau crossed the auction block earlier this year for a whopping $1,017,500. This might not be the best example to use as a barometer for the market value, however, as Seinfeld's imminent star power might have inflated the final price. This particular Flacbau is right-hand drive as well, so expect the price to be lower.
