Accessories-Porsche 964 Turbo S "Flachbau" Gt Spirit 1/18th scale Resin New in un-opened Box (2 available for sale)

$139.00


The ultra-rare 911 Turbo Flachbau, also known as the Flat Nose option, was hand-built in Stuttgart at the end of the 964 manufacturing cycle in 1994, from 76 remaining 964 Turbo chassis Porsche had in its facility, and is considered one of the rarest, most powerful, air-cooled 911s created.

This one-of-a-kind Exclusive experiment commemorated the first 935-inspired Flachbau 930s of the early 1980s. Only 39 of these extremely rare pieces were brought to the United States.

Aside from the slanted fenders, the car has 968-style headlights, twin-pipe exhaust tips, and RS air intakes. The most powerful of the 964 Flat Noses is the 3.6 S. With improved cylinder heads, retuned timing, new exhaust ports, better camshafts, and a larger turbocharger, the air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six engine produces 380 horsepower. Porsche created numerous variants of these special 964-based Turbo S coupes. The 964 Turbo received a strong clutch as well as a limited-slip differential. The brakes were updated to the "Big Red" level to suit the car's more significant performance potential.

Depending on where they were distributed worldwide, there would be four separate "Exclusive" versions. Ten X83s were sold to Japan, and 27 X84s were made available to the "Rest of the World." In the United States, only 39 X85 vehicles with flat-nose front ends were sold.

The hand-crafted automobile versions featured Porsche 935-style "Flat-Nose" bodywork with retractable exposed "flounder" headlamps a la 928/968. The standard Turbo sheet metal was coupled with 959-style air intakes on both rear quarter panels.

The front air splitter was coupled with a louvered rear wing that held the intercooler and quadruple exhaust tips. The 18-inch modular light-alloy wheels "Speedline for Porsche" were also included .Porsche engineers went a little crazy when they designed the high-speed 1994 Porsche 964 Turbo 3.6 S. The strong X88 engine, derived from the International Motor Sports Association 3.6 race motors made by Andial, was synonymous with Porsche racing in the United States in the 1970s and 1980s for the Bridgestone North American Supercar series.For over a decade, one of the most valuable Porsches was kept hidden. Porsche's first halo vehicle, the 959, was out of production by 1994.They progressed by building a special series of 964 Turbos, mostly without informing anyone. The narrative of the flat nose 911s began on racetracks in the 1970s, when Norbert Singer played a crucial role in Porsche's 16 race triumphs at the 24 Hours of Le Mans between 1970 and 1998. He chose to be barely legal by removing the headlamps to make Porsche's machinery more aerodynamic. To commemorate their accomplishment, the firm built a small batch of 930 Flachbau Turbos for the road.*A special thanks to AutoVino "Art on Wheels"
