Porsche 964 Cup Car - Interesting History, Road Registered For Sale (1990)In stock now is this superb Porsche 964 Trophy / Carrera Cup car. The car was manufactured in 1989 and delivered from Porsche Motorsport to customers in February 1990 and was one of the first batch of 34 cars produced from the total of fourty-nine Cup cars built that year. It is thought that less than 20 examples remain in original condition.
Chassis number 007 is believed to have been driven by Olaf Manthey as part of his Porsche Carrera Cup winning campaign in Germany in 1990. During the 1990 championship season Manthey raced three different 964s and this is is likely to be the one he ran at the start of the year then rented out in July for the 24 Hours at Spa Francorchamps and driven by Dorr/Hardy/Raes for the RAS Sport team. It unfortunately did not finish the race after becoming involved in an accident with Guy Renard driving a Toyota Corolla GT. The car then disappeared from public view into a private collection until it was sold a few years ago.
Since coming out of retirement the car has had racing wounds repaired to the highest standards with both rear quarters, boot floor and front panel replaced with new genuine RS parts. The full exterior, engine bay, boot aperture and floorpan have been repainted to exact Cup specifications (photos are available). The original suspension, brakes and engine are still fitted and the car has done a very very low mileage (13,914 kilometres, just 8645 miles) as reflected by the light patina of the untouched interior panelwork.
Being owned and run by an Austrian team the car was never issued with a Wagenpass. It does however have a Letter of Origin from Porsche Cars GB. The car is UK road registered, repainted in its correct Signal (Viper) green and has the original single seat as it befitting an original Cup Car.
A fantastic example with an interesting history, ready to race, use for trackdays or just as part of a collection.
