First things First, what is a 964 Backdate?
You could be forgiven for thinking the trend towards so called retro-moderns is something new, a recent phenomenon brought about by a groundswell of enthusiasm for classic cars coupled with a desire to use them like a modern car.
It’s a trend that’s easy to understand, with the benefits clear: some of the most iconic classics of yesteryear are remixed with modern mechanicals to deliver a stunning and unique driving experience, with that delicious style we so love about classics.
But surely the biggest exponent of the retro-modern philosophy and the most suitable is the Porsche 911. They make undeniably, stunning objects. By retaining its beautiful classic look, but being relatively modern, it s a joy to the eye and the drivers heart.
