Porsche 964 Cup Car
Developed by legendary Porsche engineer Roland Kussmaul, the Type 964 911 Carrera Cup was first unveiled in 1989 and featured a significant weight reduction over the standard car courtesy of a blueprinted engine, Cup-specific ECU, lightened flywheel and racing clutch. This remarkably rare 911 was one of the first 50 examples produced for the inaugural 1990 Carrera Cup race season, and benefits from a recent concours-standard respray as well as an interesting provenance supported by a wealth of documentation. Sure to be sought-after by motorsport and marque enthusiasts alike, this excellently presented 964-generation 911 Carrera Cup is an exciting find for any discerning collector,
This is a very original car which retains its original matching numbers engine, Matter roll cage and shell becoming very hard to find in older ex race cars.
The car has recently undergone a sympathetic external cosmetic restoration including a glass-out concours standard respray.
The car is accompanied by a substantial history file running to four volumes. Two of these detail the full 1990 ‘Projekt Formel’ race team history and include a substantial number of documents, invoices and letters from the Porsche racing department.
The original order form and bill of sale accompany the car, alongside a number of other artefacts including the ONS Wagenpass confirming the racing participation of this particular car in the 1990 Carrera Cup, plus other artefacts detailed below.
The car was originally delivered to Swedish Porsche aficionado Lasse Jönsson before being leased to Joakim Birgerson’s Projekt Formel racing team for the 1990 German Porsche Carrera Cup season.
In 1993, it was sold to the father of a former Jaguar Racing test driver and 2003 International Formula 3000 champion. The car was then purchased by a well-respected Swedish driver who used the car in the 1994 and 1995 Swedish Porsche Cup before keeping it dry-stored for a number of years. The car was recommissioned in 2018, at which time the engine was inspected. Following this, the car was purchased by its current owner, who undertook a sympathetic external cosmetic restoration which included a concours-standard glass-out respray in Grand Prix White. It has since been shown and driven at several PCGB events.
The Grand Prix White paintwork is topped with the period-correct 1990 decals, and the cabin features replacement Recaro SPG race seats, red Schroth harnesses and an Alcantara-trimmed GT3 Cup steering wheel.
