For Sale: One of the Rarest 911 Turbos

Mention Flachbau (German for flat-nose) to any 911 fanatic and they'll go crazy with images of the 911 flat-noses from the eighties with their smooth front end. But there was 911 Flachbau built in the mid-nineties and is one of the most coveted Porsche models.

A London classic car dealer has a 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6S Flachbau up for sale. This model is quite special as it one of the 76 Turbo 3.6 S Flachbau models built and only has 630 miles on the odometer.

How the 911 Turbo 3.6 S Flachbau came to be is one of the most interesting stories from Porsche. Back in 1993, Porsche was ending production of the 964 to make way for the 993 model. At the time, Porsche notified its dealers that it would be building a limited-run of 911 Turbo 3.6 S Flachbau models.

Power came from a turbocharged 3.6L flat-six from the Turbo S 3.6. Power was rated at 380 horsepower and 384 pound-feet. This came paired with a five-speed manual and rear-wheel drive, not all-wheel drive like the standard Turbo. Porsche smoothed the front end with fenders and headlights from the 968 coupe. If you wanted one at the time, you had to pony up $159,000 with $20,000 being paid up front.

The dealer isn't listing a price for this 911, but we would guess it will be quite expensive. Recently, Jerry Seinfeld auctioned some of his collection of various Porsche vehicles. This included a 911 Turbo 3.6 S Flachbau that sold for $1,017,500. We wouldn't be surprised this model goes for the same price or even higher.
