This week we asked Jeremy what his "dream car" was. There was no debate; he knew right away what he wanted: a 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S. He actually wanted the RUF but he wanted to make it easier for the research! Oh, and can't forget he wanted the whale tail.
The 911 was first introduced in 1963. It's a Grand Tourer from Germany and over the years they have been used in a ton of automobile competitions. They were actually one of the most successful in the races. In 1999, it came in 5th for the Car of the Century. It was voted #2 on Automobile Magazine's list of "100 Coolest Cars". Currently, the Porsche 911 is one of the oldest sports coupes still in production.
The 1994 Porsche 911 was under the number 964 when released. The first one was in 1989 and the Turbo version in 1990. Only 2,282 were made of the version Jeremy wanted. It has a top speed of 163 MPH and hits 60 MPH in 5.5 seconds. It still had the aircooled engine in '94. There is only 76 of the Slant nose version and only 17 Package cars. There is actually one featured in the 1995 movie Bad Boys.
Searching for how much the 94 Porsche goes for was a bit difficult. We found one with 105,864 miles that sold for $60,000. Most others shown have much less miles but request that you call for the price. It's estimated that a 20,000 mile 911 would still fetch 6 figures though! It had an original MSRP of $99,000.
