It's a turbo, I think it looks fine. Nice to be a bit different now and then and with the car having the gusto to back it up definitely backs it up.

Hey, doesn't really matter what we think. You like, you buy.

Too much red for me but that would not stop me from buying it if all else checked out.

The steering wheel, shift lever boot, parking brake handle boot and seat belts would get changed out but I'd keep the carbon fiber if it's installed well.

Minor stuff for someone who has the means to buy this car, which is gorgeous otherwise.

As a true European, bravo. I've got Czech and German tastes. Most Porsches go for flare - jelly bean blue or black exterior with full red interior for example.

Presently, the car looks like it should be able to bounce up-and-down like one of those '64 Chevy Impala latino cruisers

The Big Reds are correct for the '94 964 Turbo.

Some minor changes would serve to return the car to a more spartan (business-like) standard: quick release black (sueded) sparco steering wheel, black leather RS door panels, black leather shifter boot and brake boot, Recaro black racing shells (or for an updated street look, GT3 seats). Schroth 6-pt harness.

Now you can drive to the track and turn some serious laps.

I thought installing an RS America driver seat in my 964 C2 (black w/ grey int.) was a bit too much on the bling side.

Somehow it doesn't seem as crazy anymore.

..it's a little subdued for me - paint the top of the dash and the middle of the seats red and it's good to go

I hate it. I must be too old.

It's a bit much. The seat piping can stay, everything else should be black except for piping on the door panels and some red accents on the carpets.

Well, you asked...

Interior is over the top! To each his own, but I prefer clean and understated.

EDIT: just realized, though, that's a 3.6 Turbo!! Rare, and very special. If the rest of the car checks out, you could "de-tox" some of that interior

To much, someone ruined (IMO) a very nice steering wheel,but if I could afford the car,I can afford some dye.

The piping on the seats looks good-The rest of that atrocity would look better if you took 60 seconds to spray paint it back to black

Like someone else already said- It looks as classy as my 17 year old neighbor’s car after he spray painted every removable piece of the interior white just to be different

No, not a French Whorehouse. A New Orleans whorehouse.

Too much "in your face", basic black would have been better.

Just turn it all inside out and try not to spill the coke - sticky mess. Although at 0-60 in 3.7 who the hell care what your interior looks like!

More info on www.tajmagaraj.com in the museum section.

How about way overpriced ! 94` 3.6 turbos usually sell in the upper 50`s/low 60`s and that for all original perfect cars. If its a Turbo S then thats another story.

For what its worth that Bently dealer also has a sister corp(Champion motor cars) that leases out high end cars for very short terms . 6 months , 12 months , etc . They are leased by many young disrespectful idiots that beat the piss out of the cars and when their lease is up they get another used high end car to lease again . Most of their ebay sales are these cars once they start to show to many miles . And I emphasize the term "show to many" . I would suspect many of those leasees played with the odo in order to stay below the limit .
I know this because my brother once had a lease from them . I watched how he tore up a $80k BMW for 6 months . And his friend leased a 993 TT . They used to swap for weeks at a time . Both cars needed tires when they turned them in !
