Top-shelf blue-chip Porsche 964: Ex-Sultan of Brunei car, extremely low kilometres

Today’s Tempter is a little different. We usually try to keep them somewhere in the realm of affordability, and usually try feature models that offer some sort of value for money – not something usually found in today’s Porsche 911 market.

Air-cooled Porsche values have exploded over the past five years especially, with the 964 generation quickly transitioning from what was once the value-filled thinking-man’s 911, to now where values have almost trebled and you will nary find one available for under six-figures.


The 964 is beloved for many reasons, with many placing it right in the sweet spot of classic 911s. Engine displacement grew to 3.6lt and new multi-link coil-sprung suspension finally replaced the old primitive torsion beam design.

This highly-specified Carrera2 Targa looks like a standard representation of its kind. Finished in Grand Prix White over black leather interior, the 3.6lt naturally aspirated Targa-top is in fantastic condition on first glance.


Look a little closer, and you’ll see a virtual time-capsule car with just 2432kms on the odometer. In this case, ‘time-capsule’ isn’t a buzzword – in fact it may never have been more apt. This old Carrera was previously housed within the Sultan of Brunei’s mythical and infamous car collection.

An almost unrepeatable bit of provenance and a truly unique story. We’ve seen a few ex-Sultan of Brunei cars land on local soil over the years. One wonders how these make it out…

If this museum-condition 911 takes your fancy, it is listed in Victoria at Melbourne’s Dutton Garage. Beware however, it doesn’t come cheap. It’s listed for $199,990, and you can check out the full listing here!
