Porsche 911 (964) Servicing

The Porsche 964 is one of the very first generations of the 911 range, a car that comes with this much age and charisma is also likely to come with a handful of problems. Originally produced in 1989, this car is now around a very respectable 30 years old, and is becoming harder and harder to come by. Finding a reliable Porsche 964 with limited problems and a good mileage can be like trying to find a needle in a haystack, so if you do manage to come by one, be sure to look after it. 

The 964 gives Porsche lovers a real sense of nostalgia and excellence. If you’re looking for a car with less than 100,000 miles at this age, then you will need lots of patience and even more money, settling for a car with lots of miles is not a bad thing, as long as you know its history and can tell what condition its in. Regularly servicing a car of this calibre is detrimental to its longevity, and can do tremendous things for the lifespan of a car. A simple oil and filter change really can go a long way.
